The Anthropocene Reviewed by John Green
This was a really interesting book to read- so many different topics and broken down in a really scientific way. It did get a little repetitive after a while and I found myself skipping around chapters based on what appealed to me the most, because each chapter stands alone.

The Off Limits Rule by Sarah Adams
I have found rock bottom. It’s here, moving in with my older brother because I’m too broke to afford to live on my own. But that’s okay because we’ve always been close and I think I’m going to have fun living with him again. That is until I meet Cooper…
Lore Olympus Volume 2 by Rachel Smythe
Persephone was ready to start a new life when she left the mortal realm for Olympus. However, she quickly discovered the dark side of her glamorous new home—from the relatively minor gossip threatening her reputation to a realm-shattering violation of her safety by the conceited Apollo—and she’s struggling to find her footing in the fast-moving realm of the gods. Hades is also off-balance, fighting against his burgeoning feelings for the young goddess of spring while maintaining his lonely rule of the Underworld. As the pair are drawn ever closer, they must untangle the twisted webs of their past and present to build toward a new future.
