Books I’m Taking To College

Hey friends! Today’s post is one that i’m suuuper excited to type up because it means i’m getting closer and closer to move in day! I’m going to be a college freshman this year and I am so excited to start this new chapter of my life. However, the only downside to this is the limited amount of space there is in my dorm for books, so I thought it would be fun to share which ones i’m bringing with me!

I have 25 books on my list and I know that’s probably a LOT but I definitely want to be prepared for when I do have time to read because, i’m a total mood reader! Depending on the time I could be in the mood for a contemporary, fantasy, sci-fi, or even adult so I just want to keep my options open. Plus, I think this may be a good thing because it will motivate me to try and read some of these before break so that I can switch them out with new ones when I go home!

  1. Oooh it looks like you’re bringing some good ones for sure. I get conflicted every year about what books I want to bring with me to college. I have an e-reader too, but it’s just not the same as having all our physical copies within reach, ya know? Good luck with your freshman year and I hope you enjoy the books you plan to read!!

  2. I narrowed down my list to about 6-7 books, because I know my dorm room is super small and I won’t have the space for all 50+ books on my owned TBR list, which is so sad 😦 Plus, I’m worried I won’t have the time to read as much as I’d like, which I’ve heard from so many people. I have the kindle app on my phone with over 15 books there as well which I haven’t read yet, so at least I’ll have options! So jealous that you get to bring so many !

    1. ahh i totally getchaa. my room is thankfully large enough to accommodate all of these so even if i don’t have time for them they are at least not taking up needed space but yeah we’ll see i hope to have time to read them but if not it’s fine 🙂

  3. That looks like a pretty solid list! I haven’t read Save the Date yet; it’s getting pushed back on my TBR. It must be good if it made your dorm list! 😀


  4. I’m moving back into my apartment tomorrow and still haven’t pack up my books for the move! XD I just don’t want this summer to end! The cover for Little White Lies looks gorgeous and Sadie keeps popping up everywhere, so I think both of those just officially got added to the TBR. Good luck with college!
