If you are like me and live the college life, you may have just been released from all of the crazy school schedules, exams, and stress that you have spent months slowly dying inside. But THANKSGIVING BREAK was just on the horizon. AND, it’s finally here! So let the distressing begin!Of course, one of the first things I will be doing is grabbing my current book (which happens to be Heartless by Marissa Meyer), a giant cup of coffee, and a cozy blanket to help escape from this freezing wind.

So what better way to kick off the break than with a hefty TBR pile to help bring my sanity back before finals snatches it away again?

So here are a few of the books that I will be reading within the next week:

When writer Arthur Ransome leaves his home in England and moves to Russia to work as a journalist, it is with little idea of the violent revolution about to erupt. Unwittingly, he finds himself at its center, tapped by the British to report back on the Bolsheviks even as he becomes dangerously romantically entangled with revolutionary leader Trotsky’s personal secretary. Both sides seek to use Arthur for their own purposes…and, as he struggles to find autonomy, both sides grow to suspect him of being a double agent. Arthur wants only to elope far from the conflict with his beloved. But when he attempts to extract himself and Evgenia from the complicated politics and politicians that he fears will lead them both to their deaths, the decisions he faces are the most dangerous and difficult of his life.”
