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

Fantasy &Fiction

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.'"

Graceling Series
Kristin Cashore

"Four fantasy adventures that follow women who are strong in their own ways. A great world with plenty of intrigue."

Kara Swanson

"Gorgeous Peter Pan retelling with the perfect amount of heartache, magic, flying, and boyish grinning."

The Scorpio Races
Maggie Stiefvater

"I fell for these characters and wanted them to succeed so badly. Honestly a contender for my all-time favorites lists."

Six of Crows
Leigh Bardugo

"Full of lovable, morally grey thieves who all need the money. Great banter, character dynamics, and plot twists!"



The Host
Stephenie Meyer

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

Cinder (TLC)
Marissa Meyer

"This series grabs you and won't let go. Diverse females, creative parallels with classic fairy tales, and high-stakes."



World of Wonders
Aimee Nezhukumatatil

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

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?"

Teen Titans: Raven
Kami Garcia

"Wonderful take on the classic Teen Titans heroine! A fast-paced graphic novel with stunning artwork."

Everything Everything
Nicola Yoon

"A lovely contemporary romance with an engaging story, a relatable MC, and adorable graphics. Perfect summer read."


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 did. 

Matthew J. Kirby

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

Ender's Game
Orson Scott Card

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