This Will Only Hurt A Little by Busy Phillips

Okay first of all, I LOVE BUSY PHILLIPS. I've loved her since she was Kim Kelly on Freaks & Geeks and I honestly have no clue why she's not in more stuff. She's hilarious and I want to be best friends with her. She's one of the few actresses where I've felt like she's actually got a … Continue reading This Will Only Hurt A Little by Busy Phillips

Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll

First off, this book is intense. It talks frankly about school shootings, sexual violence, and gang rapes. If that hits close to home, please tread carefully.

Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose by Joe Biden

Fair warning, I never cry on planes. Unless I'm coming back from a funeral or something emotionally exhausting. But mostly, I sleep, read, and do some writing if the wifi's working.
