Favorites of Mine

Updated: Apr 28

Here is a list of some of my favorite reads, with link of where to get them attached to the name. Most of them I have read recently, but several have been influential over the past few years. I listed them alphabetically by title within each section, because ranking them would be too difficult. If you are looking for something to read, I would recommend any of these with great confidence that it would benefit you, and you would enjoy it. I am sure a list like this will need to be updated at some point, but as of today, these are my favorites!
