Christmas Break Reading List

The other day, it hit me - once I finish exams (pray for me please), I'll be home for an entire month. 

After I got past the "Praise Jesus Hallelujah I can finally sleep," phase, I realized that I won't really have a whole lot to do during the day. I was talking about this with one of my friends the other night, and we exchanged some ideas on books we'd heard were good, and thus, the Christmas Break Reading List was born.
1. The Secret History by Donna Tartt :: Review

2. Humans of New York: Stories by Brandon Stanton :: Review

3. Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari :: Review

4. The Marriage Plot by Jeffry Eugenides :: Review

5. Freedom by Jonahan Franzen :: Review

6. A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn :: Review

7. Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee :: Review

Side note - I read A People's History of the United States last year in my Political Science class, and although it is incredibly dense and challenging, I strongly recommend it because it will challenge everything you know about the history of America in the best way. I have not read any of the other books, but many of them have been strongly recommended/I've heard really good reviews of them from people my age.

Are you hoping to tear into a couple non-academic books over break this year?

PS - these would also be awesome gifts for the college kid in your life!
