Books 

 

The She Book by Tanya Murkul

  • Empowering. Striking. Incredible. Tanya Murkul writes 114 poems for women and girls. She includes poems on heartbreak, self love and self discovery. If you are in the market for poems that will leave you contemplating life; then this is the book for you. This is a book that moved me to tears and left me with goosebumps. It is definitely a must read. 

The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur

  • Rupi Kaur was show stopping with her first poetry book, Milk and Honey. Everyone wanted more from the woman who had somehow related to millions of people. Although this one is not as relatable, it does tell a beautiful story of a family with immigrants as parents and how that experience shapes their entire lives. 

Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

  • Many of us are reading it this year in school, but let’s talk about it from a different perspective, personal enjoyment. Dickens wrote this novel in a very informal and intellectually juvenile way. The readers are able to see Pip, the protagonist, go through life from a relatable and exciting viewpoint. 

 

Movies

Little Women:

  • A movie my mother called “life changing.” I was impressed with the story delivered. Emma Watson was incredible and casting her as Meg was truly cinematic genius. The story line includes four sisters during the Civil War; it is truly a heartwarming story and will most likely leave you in tears. 

 

The King 

  • Action packed with Timothee Chalamet and Robert Pattinson, sounds like every guy and girl’s dream. The acting was superb and the storyline was interesting. When a young man has to become king, many battles must be fought, many betrayals will occur, and a few may find love. 

 

Camp Rock

  • An old one for us teenagers who are now looking on Disney Plus for our childhood favorites. It is filled with some nostalgic music, borderline bad acting, and definitely a lot of old memories.
