October is finally here, which means exams and projects are starting to come up. Between studying and work, be sure to take some time and de-stress. We have a brand-new set of recommendations for you this week, so set aside some time to relax!

Read Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

Superhero films and TV shows are common these days, but what would happen if these powerful humans weren’t so heroic? David Charleston lives in a world dominated by Epics, people gifted with extraordinary abilities. No one stands up to them except for an underground organization known as the Reckoners, and David wants to join them to avenge his father’s death at the hands of Steelheart, one of the strongest Epics. The book features an incredible cast of characters, so if you’re up for an exciting adventure, Steelheart is certainly worth reading.


Listen to Anberlin’s Breaking

As much as we may make fun of it now, the 2000s did give us some good music! Anberlin’s alternative-pop song Breaking is great for jamming out to and singing at the top of your lungs if you need to release your stress this weekend.




Watch Moana

If you missed Disney’s latest animated hit at Lost Films, don’t worry—it’s available on Netflix! Moana tells the story of a young woman who finds herself on a quest to relieve her people of an ancient curse with the help of Maui, a demigod. The film also features music by Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda, giving the soundtrack multiple nominations for awards.




Watch White Collar

White Collar puts a spin on the typical crime show by putting a convicted man in the spotlight. Looking for another way to serve his prison sentence, con man Neal Caffrey agrees to help the FBI solve cases by sharing his expertise in white collar-crime. With its charming and endearing cast, White Collar is an exciting and more lighthearted take on a typical crime drama.




Go for a walk by the Yellow Breeches

Take advantage of the wonderful weather and go for a walk along the Yellow Breeches! Or, if you’d prefer, bring your hammock and relax for a bit. Either way, you’ll get to enjoy some quiet time in God’s creation and see the beauty of autumn as we transition into the month ahead.
