Book Reviews


I like to read. A lot!

I have always been an avid reader and fly through books in no time. I wind up reading so many books that sometimes I forget what I’ve already read until I’m halfway through reading it again!

As a way to prevent that from happening, I try to write reviews of books as I finish them, and/or post them here so I can keep track. That way, I can come back and look at them whenever I need a refresher, and you guys can see which books I liked best.

(Note: I’ve mostly stopped writing reviews because I think people found them boring, but if you want me to write a review on a particular book let me know!)

Please take a look through the books I’ve reviewed and listed below and feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. You can also follow me on Good Reads, but truthfully this page is updated more regularly. 😉
