Books I’ve Read

Growing up, I took a book everywhere, much to my mother’s annoyance when she’d have to sit in silence driving me around while I read. Nowadays, I still read just as much, but I keep proper track of what I’m reading.

See what I’ve been reading below – and give a holler if you want my hot take thoughts on any of the books. If you have a book you think I should read, please suggest it.

Note: Books completed in 2019 did not have great tracking, so date is approximate and author might be missing.
