I have always been a bookworm. It started with Amelia Bedelia, The Golly Sisters, Box Car Children, and Sweet Valley High. Then of course there was the age of Harry Potter and A Series of Unfortunate Events. Since then I like to think my reading taste has evolved, but I still love a captivating story that I can get lost in. (Google image search “Never Ending Story apple reading” and you will see my spirit animal).

As much as I need to fuel my body with good food, I need to fuel my mind with insightful and inspiring content. My favorite genre to read is memoir, because to me there is nothing as fascinating as someone’s story. I’m definitely not above a good psychological thriller, because I love trying to solve mysteries, and the twisted characters are creepy and wonderful. If I’m listening to a book while running, it’s probably a Psychological Thriller.

I’ve compiled a few “bookshelves” below of books I’ve deemed as worthy reads that are on topic with some things I write about on my blog.

You can read all of my book reviews here.

Of course, I plan on expanding this list. I would be seriously grateful if you would leave a comment of any books on topic that you highly recommend… Please, don’t be shy!

I am so excited to be a TLC Book Tour host, and look forward to reviewing books with them! (I will always note in a review if it is a copy sent to me by TLC).
