Favorite Books?

[Note: This page is still a work in progress…]

I have too many favorite books to mention, and it’s hard to narrow them down especially when I have to consider the books I am reading now vs. the books I grew up on. However, here is a short list of some of my favorites in case you are looking for recommendations! I’m going to leave off the obvious ones like Harry Potter and The Hunger Games (though I love them!) in hopes that you may find your new favorite waiting for you in the list below…
