  21. I'm currently reading The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri, her writing is amazing and drew me in almost immediately.
    Challenge yourself to stray from the classics once in awhile and read some of the contemporary works by POC, they are just as amazing.

  23. Anything by Mitch Albom. His books are short, some are non-fiction, and they're all super inspirational and awesome. Great reads.
