Links I Love

My favorite finds from around the web:

100 must-read YA books with little or no romance. Because so many of you have asked for a list like this!

Bob Dylan’s best lyrics: the songs that prove he deserves his Nobel Prize.

What you spend time reading changes your brain. “Increasingly, we’re filling our heads with soundbites, the mental equivalent of junk. Over a day or even a week, the changes, like those to our belly, are barely noticeable. However, if we extend the timeline to months and years, we face a worrying reality…”

I’m a doctor. If I drop food on the kitchen floor, I still eat it. I’m betting my order of operations is typical: read article, clean fridge handle, toss kitchen sponge.


Don’t forget!

The next Quick Lit post and link-up is Saturday, October 15. Get your TBR lists ready!

On the blog:

4 strategies I originally dismissed as too “out there” that have significantly helped me (and my loved ones) manage anxiety.

    I love the pumpkin from book pages! I hope you have read Sophie Kinsella by now–read the first few Shopaholics, for sure. They are laugh out loud funny!

  2. OH. MY. WORD. I had to write a biology paper this past week about a recent scientific news article, and I picked one called “I’m a Doctor. If I Drop Food on the Kitchen Floor, I Still Eat It”

    And then I just saw it in your weekend links and freaked out! What are the odds?!?! (My brother said the odds are pretty good since I have so much in common with you, but still!)

    God bless you for the YA list!! I need this desperately! My middle schoolers are moaning about the book hole they are in!

    The article, “The Pot-Belly of Ignorance” was an absorbing read. I used to read gossip rags and clickbait articles often with my friends throughout middle school and high school. When I entered my college freshman year, I had decided to stop reading them.

    I struggle with depression and anxiety, so it was a remarkable experience to see just how much better my mental health was by quitting clickbait articles. It’s amazing how sometimes it’s the small matters that can take a number out on your mental health. It didn’t cure my depression or anxiety of course. I still deal with on a daily basis, but I certainly felt less burdened somehow.
