25 Books You Wish Existed

It’s officially summer, and cracking open a new book is either at the top or the bottom of your to do list. If it’s a textbook for summer classes, you have my condolences. If it’s some sappy novel due to your tanning (or rather, your nannying job that parks you at the pool everyday) you have my jealousy. Reading is incredibly underrated nowadays, especially in this world where we can’t even focus long enough to read a tweet that’s more than two lines long.

Losing yourself in a book is one of the most simple, beneficial ways to occupy your mind without having to stare at a tiny screen. (That is, unless, you read on a Kindle or something. In which case, I take it back.) When you find the right read, it’s like the planets aligned for the sole purpose of placing whatever work the author has created specifically for you directly in your hands. HA. Totally kidding. Who the fuck reads for fun anymore? I barely have time to multitask watching “Keep Up With The Kardashians” on TV while streaming “Gossip Girl” on Netflix and refreshing my Instagram feed every 17 seconds. Here are some books that would actually be worth investing in from cover to cover.

1. “Believable Excuses To Get You Out Of Going To Chapter”
