I have more detailed reviews for many of these books on my Goodreads page!

Fantasy &Fiction

Little Thieves
Margaret Owen

"A witty thief protagonist? A not-quite-human, lovable friend? A by-the-book, kind love interest? Gods and heists? Count. Me. In." 

The Girl of Fire & Thorns
Rae Carson

"Must read if you love strong character development, unique world-building, and large themes made personal."

All the Crooked Saints
Maggie Stiefvater

"Mystical stand-alone with prose that sucked me in. Every reader will find a character who shares their 'darkness.'"

Lockwood & Co.
Jonathan Stroud

"Funny, mildly-spooky MG series with tons of plot twists and sweet character moments. Plus it's a phenomenal Netflix show!"

Robert Jackson Bennett

"An adult fantasy with so many heists!! Our main character has realistic skills and weaknesses navigating a complex world."

Lost and Found
Orson Scott Card

"Magical realism meets mystery. A story about identity with potent dialogue, friendships, and unique powers."



Atomic Habits
James Clear

"This is life-changing stuff, y'all. The content is revelevant, engaging, and most importantly, applicable right now." 

In Defense of Food
Michael Pollan

"A truthful and challenging examination of our relationship with food & what we actually put in our bodies."

As You Wish
Cary Elwes

"My favorite read of 2022. It was an absolute delight to listen to the behind-the-scenes of my favorite movie. It warmed my heart and made me laugh."

World of Wonders
Aimee Nezhukumatatil

"Captivating creative non-fiction that romanticizes the natural world and intertwines narrative with observation."



The Host
Stephenie Meyer

"Wow. Stunning world-building and characters that make you wonder if aliens deserve our planet more than we do."

Pride and Prejudice
Jane Austen

"I was not prepared to laugh as much as I did. Relatable characters, wit galore, and amazing heart."

The Road
Cormac McCarthy

"This post-apocalyptic journey is not for the faint of heart. How far is a father willing to go to preserve his son's innocence?"

The Boy, The Mole...
Charlie Mackesy

...the Fox and the Horse. "A perfect inspirational book with heartfelt quotes and wholesome characters."


My All-time Favorites

This is the only section that will not be swapped regularly. These are the books that I personally believe everyone and their mom should read. I hope you'll be able to find as much joy (and maybe heartache) in them as I do. 

Ender's Game
Orson Scott Card

"Intense sci-fi you can’t stop reading as things get morally gray. Incredible character psychology and emotion."

The Scorpio Races
Maggie Stiefvater

"A dangerous but alluring island, personal stakes, and gorgeous prose make this story so special to me. These characters make me feel so deeply."

Matthew J. Kirby

"Not all protagonists need to scream the loudest or act rashly to have strength. A beautiful story with heart and power."
