Summer Reading Revelry

Happy Summer! Spend your time off school with this month’s Reading Revelry recommendations. Whether you are looking for something light and romantic, or something full of adventure and magic, we have got you covered. Happy Reading!









A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik

ISBN: 9780593128480
Publication Date: 2020-09-29
Everyone loves Orion Lake. Everyone else, that is. Far as I’m concerned, he can keep his flashy combat magic to himself. I’m not joining his pack of adoring fans. I don’t need help surviving the Scholomance, even if they do. Forget the hordes of monsters and cursed artifacts, I’m probably the most dangerous thing in the place. Just give me a chance and I’ll level mountains and kill untold millions, make myself the dark queen of the world. At least, that’s what the world expects. Most of the other students in here would be delighted if Orion killed me like one more evil thing that’s crawled out of the drains. Sometimes I think they want me to turn into the evil witch they assume I am. The school certainly does. But the Scholomance isn’t getting what it wants from me. And neither is Orion Lake. I may not be anyone’s idea of the shining hero, but I’m going to make it out of this place alive, and I’m not going to slaughter thousands to do it, either.







Eragon by Christopher Paolini

ISBN: 9780375826689
Publication Date: 2003-08-26
When fifteen-year-old Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon soon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself. Overnight his simple life is shattered, and, gifted with only an ancient sword, a loyal dragon, and sage advice from an old storyteller, Eragon is soon swept into a dangerous tapestry of magic, glory, and power. Now his choices could save–or destroy–the Empire.








Don’t Want You Like a Best Friend by Emma R. Alban

ISBN: 9780063312005
Publication Date: 2024-01-09
It’s 1857, and anxious debutante Beth has just one season to snag a wealthy husband, or she and her mother will be out on the street. But playing the blushing ingenue makes Beth’s skin crawl and she’d rather be anywhere but here. Gwen, on the other hand, is on her fourth season and counting, with absolutely no intention of finding a husband, possibly ever. She figures she has plenty of security as the only daughter of a rakish earl, from whom she’s gotten all her flair, fun, and less-than-proper party games. “Let’s get them together,” she says. It doesn’t take long for Gwen to hatch her latest scheme: rather than surrender Beth to courtship, they should set up Gwen’s father and Beth’s newly widowed mother. Let them get married instead. “It’ll be easy” she says. There’s just…one, teeny, tiny problem. Their parents kind of seem to hate each other. But no worries. Beth and Gwen are more than up to the challenge of a little twenty-year-old heartbreak. How hard can parent-trapping widowed ex-lovers be? Of course, just as their plan begins to unfold, a handsome, wealthy viscount starts calling on Beth, offering up the perfect, secure marriage. Beth’s not mature enough for this… Now Gwen must face the prospect of sharing Beth with someone else, forever. And Beth must reckon with the fact that she’s caught feelings, hard, and they’re definitely not for her potential fiancé. That’s the trouble with matchmaking: sometimes you accidentally fall in love with your best friend in the process.

Nettle and Bone by T. Kingfisher

ISBN: 9781250244048
Publication Date: 2022-04-26
Marra — a shy, convent-raised, third-born daughter — is relieved not to be married off for the sake of her parents’ throne. Her older sister wasn’t so fortunate though, and her royal husband is as abusive as he is powerful. From the safety of the convent, Marra wonders who will come to her sister’s rescue and put a stop to this. But after years of watching their families and kingdoms pretend all is well, Marra realizes if any hero is coming, it will have to be Marra herself. If Marra can complete three impossible tasks, a witch will grant her the tools she needs. But, as is the way in stories of princes and the impossible, these tasks are only the beginning of Marra’s strange and enchanting journey to save her sister and topple a throne.

Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-García

ISBN: 9781432885380
Publication Date: 2021-02-24
After receiving a frantic letter from her newly-wed cousin begging for someone to save her from a mysterious doom, Noemí Taboada heads to High Place, a distant house in the Mexican countryside. She’s not sure what she will find–her cousin’s husband, a handsome Englishman, is a stranger, and Noemí knows little about the region. Noemí is also an unlikely rescuer: She’s a glamorous debutante, and her chic gowns and perfect red lipstick are more suited for cocktail parties than amateur sleuthing. But she’s also tough and smart, with an indomitable will, and she is not afraid: Not of her cousin’s new husband, who is both menacing and alluring; not of his father, the ancient patriarch who seems to be fascinated by Noemí ; and not even of the house itself, which begins to invade Noemi’s dreams with visions of blood and doom.

Wow, No Thank You by Samantha Irby

ISBN: 9780525563488
Publication Date: 2020-03-31
Irby is forty, and increasingly uncomfortable in her own skin despite what Inspirational Instagram Infographics have promised her. She has left her job as a receptionist at a veterinary clinic, has published successful books and has been friendzoned by Hollywood, left Chicago, and moved into a house with a garden that requires repairs and know-how with her wife in a Blue town in the middle of a Red state where she now hosts book clubs and makes mason jar salads. This is the bourgeois life of a Hallmark Channel dream. She goes on bad dates with new friends, spends weeks in Los Angeles taking meetings with “tv executives slash amateur astrologers” while being a “cheese fry-eating slightly damp Midwest person,” “with neck pain and no cartilage in [her] knees,” who still hides past due bills under her pillow.

The Undocumented Americans by Karla Cornejo Villavicencio

ISBN: 9780399592683
Publication Date: 2020-03-24
Writer Karla Cornejo Villavicencio was on DACA when she decided to write about being undocumented for the first time using her own name. It was right after the election of 2016, the day she realized the story she’d tried to steer clear of was the only one she wanted to tell. So she wrote her immigration lawyer’s phone number on her hand in Sharpie and embarked on a trip across the country to tell the stories of her fellow undocumented immigrants.

Resume Paper Printing 101

Are you preparing for this semester’s Career fairs? Are you confused on where to print on resume paper or even where to find it? This post will attempt to address your concerns and inform you on what campus services you can utilize to prepare to meet potential employers.

What is Resume Paper?

Resume paper is a sheet of paper that usually comes in the regular paper dimensions of 8.5″ x 11″. However, it is slightly thicker and sturdier than regular paper.

Resume paper can be found at most office supply stores or large retailers that sell office supplies. This would include places like Office Depot, Staples, Walmart, or Target. To buy it, you should be prepared to spend anywhere between $11-$45 depending on the quantity and brand you purchase. However, there are some places on campus you can acquire it for no charge.

Where can I Find Resume Paper on Campus?

Engineering libraryWe do not keep a regular supply of resume paper. However, we do currently have a small supply of it that we are happy to give out. This will be as-supplies-last.

MU Career Center – The Career Center does keep resume paper to give out to students. You will have to ask at their front desk to receive some.

Trulaske College of Business Career CenterFor business majors and minors only, the college of Business’ Career Services does have resume paper that they will let you use in-office to print on.

Student Center – The Student Center does sell resume paper as well. It will go for similar prices as retailers.

Where can I Print on Resume Paper on Campus?

MU Career Center – Likewise to requesting paper from them, the Career Center will also print your resume for you at their front desk.

Trulaske College of Business Career CenterFor business majors and minors only, the college of Business’ Career Center will allow you to use their printers to print your resume. They ask that you render your resume ready to print before going to their offices.


Why do I need resume paper? – These days, it is more common for you to submit your resume digitally than to submit it physically. However, that may not always be the case. Using resume paper in a career fair setting is expected to help you develop presentation skills and an attention to detail when it comes to job hunting. Some colleges may require it of their students attending events where they will meet potential employers.

Why do the libraries discourage using their printers to print on resume paper? – While using this type of paper shouldn’t hurt our printers, we generally discourage using our printers due to the fact that they are public use. There is no guarantee that your paper isn’t accidentally used by another student printing something. As well, you would have to take all of the loaded paper out of the printer you’re using to ensure that the printer won’t print your document on regular, already-loaded paper.

Reading Revelry: Judy Blume July

The Engineering Library is turning our attention to Judy Blume for our Reading Revelry picks for the month of July.

Since her first published work in 1969, Judy Blume gained renown as a prolific author to have published works for child, young adult, and adult audiences. However, she is also considered a trailblazer of child and young adult literature[1]. Blume wrote books that discussed topics of bullying, love, sex, and body image during a time where these things were rarely ever discussed in spaces children and teens had access to. While she was met with opposition, many of her readers still hold true that her books were spaces for them to finally get answers about themselves and the world around them that they couldn’t have asked anywhere else[1].

We hope you will enjoy reading (or re-reading) the selections we’ve picked for this month. Happy Reading!

Blubber by Judy Blume

ISBN: 9781481414401

Publication Date: 1974/2014

Jill and the rest of her fifth-grade class follow Wendy and Caroline’s example after they begin bullying a classmate for her appearance. However, it doesn’t take long for Jill and her best friend Tracy to realize that they are not exempt from becoming bullied themselves. The girls soon find themselves being tormented in a similar fashion by Wendy, Caroline, and the classmate they chose to bully simply because it was what everyone else was doing. 


Here’s to you, Rachel Robinson by Judy Blume

ISBN: 9780440409465

Publication Date: 1994

Rachel Robinson is thirteen years old, and she is the youngest of three siblings. While she is proud of her academic accomplishments, Rachel feels like her insecurities and perceived insignificance may get the better of her. Throughout the novel, she feels like she fades into the background of her family’s hectic life, that her best friends, Alison and Stephanie, secretly dislike her, that she might not be able to handle the pressure of joining high-achieving school societies, and worried over her crush on her brother’s older tutor, Paul Medeiros. In this novel, Blume captures the worries and insecurities that follow children into young adulthood[2].


Wifey by Judy Blume

ISBN: 9780425206546

Publication Date: 1978/2005

Wifey follows the life of Sandy Pressman, a New Jersey housewife in the 1970s. Bored with her life and marriage, Sandy decides to have an extramarital affair with an old boyfriend. However, her world seems to shift suddenly when she discovers evidence that her husband might also be having an affair. This novel expands on many questions surrounding the pressures of what building a “perfect” life looks like for women. While the book was written in the 70s, the discussions within the novel can still apply to today’s ideas of gender roles, heteronormative lifestyles, and the parts of a marriage no one else sees[2]
