When I was packing for college, one of the most difficult decisions I had to make was what books to bring. Here is a list of some of the books I brought to college and why!
We all know that dorms are SMALL and mine is no exception. With limited space and a lot to fit in it, I had to carefully consider what books were worthy enough to bring with me. There was a lengthy process and many tears shed, but eventually, I had decided which ones were making the trip to my college room. There are definitely books that I wish I had with me (I’ve actually had Jessica ship me some…), but I am happy with the ones I chose. Here are the books, excluding ones purchased for school, that I brought with me to college!
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab
This one was a given, it is one of my favorites (it might be number one, but that statement is far too bold to make) and I knew I had to bring it. If not for me, for all my new friends!
Winnie the Pooh by A. A. Milne
Winnie The Pooh is a childhood favorite of mine and my dad wrote a note on the inside of the cover (hot take: books with notes inside are the best gift to receive!) and I just could not leave it behind.
Macbeth by William Shakespeare
In my English class last year, we only read part of this classic due to time constraints and I really enjoyed it! I bought a copy with the goal of reading the whole thing, but didn’t finish before I left.
The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis
Another one of those comfort reads, I love this series and think everyone should read them at some point in their life. The Chronicles Of Narnia makes me happy and I have reread them so often that the thought of not having them there made me sad :(
Paper Towns by John Green
Paper Towns is AMAZING. With realistic and relatable characters, a fun and intriguing plot, and excellent writing style, John Green does not disappoint with this book. I had to bring it to force everyone to read it!
Inward by Yung Pueblo
I actually have not read Inward, but I have recently gotten into poetry books and was looking for something light and fun to read once I got to college. From the little I have read, I really enjoy the writing style!
