HEY DO YOU WANT TO KNOW SOMETHING COOL ABOUT SUMMER?
HAVING TIME TO READ.
Note: book descriptions begin from left to right, as pictured above.
1. A World Without Bees
Lately, I have become weirdly interested in pollination– paticularly in forms of alternative pollination, colony collapse disorder, and all things bee. (Side note: I recently watched the documentary All About Honey, and I highly recommend it). I am crediting this sudden obsession to Being A Biology Major Who Is Subsequently Interested in Life. However, this could be a late after effect of the botany class I took last semester. Dr. J, you inspired me– I even bought an orchid. (Side note two: I named said orchid Lilly. I’m ironic like that).
2. Baby City
This is a novel! A NOVEL! I am terrible at reading novels. For some reason, they no longer hold my attention like nonfiction does. I suspect that this is because math killed my imagination in high school, proving once again that calculus is of Satan. Anyway, I bought this book for myself as a birthday gift, and I loved it! If you are an aspiring premedical student, read this book. There’s even a excerpt on SDN. Since being a maternal fetal medicine specialist/obstetrician*** is my dream career, I devoured this. That being said, the romance predictable, and I found the main character to be rather unlikable.
3. How to Become an Straight A Student
Again, if you a premed undergrad, read. this. book. It will change your life.
Brb, I have books to read.
*** That’s been my desired career before I had even heard of Gray’s Anatomy or the fictional Addison Shepherd. Just saying. Although I do aspire to practice medicine as attractively as her, sans the hilariously impractical 4 inch heels.
p.s. If any of you nerds were wondering, the quote in the title is by renowned word ninja Louisa May Alcott.
