HI! It’s has been a minute (or a year)… Sorry about that!

Now that we are all stuck in side I put together a list of books that I recommend/what I have been wanting to read! My parents were big encouragers of my sister and I reading when we were kids which has turned into a love of books for me.

My bed side table currently has a large stack of books that I am working on getting it down during this quarantine. A while back when I worked next to an amazon books and on breaks I would go in and write down all the books that I wanted to read. I also like to research different virtual book clubs and what movies/tv shows that are coming out that originated as books. For the most part I read fiction but I do have some non fiction on these lists. (These are not in any particular order.)
