The Coop is a bookstore in Harvard Square. While technically in Cambridge, Massachusetts, it’s easily accessible from Boston’s red line. The Coop has four levels of books on every subject and a lot of Harvard merchandise. 

One of the best things about the Coop is all the tables spread out. It’s a nice place to relax with a book. The Coop has been around since 1872 and it’s not to be missed if you’re heading to Harvard’s campus!

Review: Loveboat, Taipei by Abigail Hing Wen

Loveboat, Taipei is marketed for “fans of Crazy Rich Asians or Jane Austen Comedy of Manners, with a hint of La La Land.” 

Eighteen-year old Ever Wong wants to dance. After being taken off the waitlist at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Ever finally thinks this is her shot. Too bad her ultra-strict parents already have another plan in store for her: attend Northwestern University and become a doctor (never mind that Ever has an intense fear of blood). When her parents find her acceptance letter to Tisch, they ship Ever off to Taiwan to study Mandarin for the summer. While there, Ever finds herself thrown into a world full over-achieving kids— those exactly like her parents always hoped she would be. She meets Rick Woo, her childhood nemesis, and his enigmatic cousin Sophie, who shows Ever that life outside of Ohio is full of freedom and endless possibility.
