Book List

Before I could read I loved books. My mother had to start bedtime an hour earlier because I had so many books I pulled from my bookshelf that needed to be re-read that night. When I started reading on my own, I would (and still do) carry a book around with me everywhere I went.

Halfway through high school and for most of college, I rarely had the chance to read pleasure books. As a journalism and history student, most of my textbooks were actually novels (and were quite good!). Below, I’ve compiled my list of favorite books. Check out my GoodReads account to see what I’m currently reading. Feel free to let me know of a good book or chat about one I have read!
