I am a bookworm. But a favorite teacher of mine once told me that you don't HAVE to finish a book, if you aren't into it... and so I rarely finish books I don't enjoy. Similarly, I'll only blog about the books that in my opinion are worth reading. The below list isn't by any means a complete list of books I've enjoyed, but it's a good start! If I've written a post about a particular book, it should link to it.

I'd also love recommendations and am open to doing reviews, and you can check out the Contact page for details.
