Man, the TBTB ladies need to do more of these topics. I love picking out books that certain people should read.
1. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Cath is a freshman in college, too, so relatability.
2. Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando
Set in the summer before the protagonists' freshman year. Demonstrates how roomie relationships aren't always perfect.
3. The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau
At least your university experience won't be like this.
4. Just One Day by Gayle Forman
Set partially during Alyson's freshman year of college, a big part of Just One Day focuses on independence, growth, and personal discovery.
5. Don't Fail Me Now by Una LaMarche
Realize you are privileged, if you are able to attend a college or university.
6. To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
You may find your first romantic relationship or a new relationship at college. Learn from Lara Jean - be yourself and be brave.
7. Free to Fall by Lauren Miller
Set in a sort-of college situation. Rigorous academics and a secret society.
8. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Finding a new group of friends, being far away from home, and finding love. All things that often happen when you start college.
9. Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between by Jennifer E. Smith
What if you're already in a relationship and you're trying to decide if you can be long-distance or not?
10. This Side of Home by Renee Watson
I don't have a super good reason for including this book or the next choice, but I think they're both important and deserve to be read.
11. Written in the Stars by Aisha Saeed
See what I said above for This Side of Home.
12. The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne
Many of you might be voting for the first time this year. Here's a good, fairly neutral, look at politics and how to make your own decisions when they conflict with your parents' views.
So what group did you recommend books for? I'd love to read y'all's posts, so link them below!
