What I Read

Wondering what types of books I like? To be honest, I like a little bit of everything! I love learning something new, exploring the world through books, and reading ones that leave you wanting to know more.

In particular though, I really enjoy:

Memoirs/Biographies-Especially the ones where they set up a 'project' and then try to document the experience. (Think 'The Happiness Project' or 'Julie and Julia')

Women's Fiction-Mainstream popular, contemporary books. That is not to say that I don't love a good classic as well!

Young Adult-As a kid I loved the Babysitter's Club, Sweet Valley High, Boxcar Children, Judy Blume, and Beverly Clearly. As the genre has developed, so has my taste in it. I like to understand how people develop over time and reading this genre helps me to understand better how people do that. 

Adventure Books-Outside of the reading world I love to hike, travel, explore. Anything related to this is right up my alley!

Education/Leadership Books-this is what my graduate degree is in, so if there is something I can read on this topic, I am all ears. 

Graphic Novels- This is a new group for me! I haven't read a ton of them, but the ones I have been reading have been alot of fun. :)


  1. I was wondering if you have ever checked out Kindle Scout? You can read the first 5000 words of a book then nominate it if you like it. This a link to The Nether. If A book gets enough nominations Kindle Scout will go through it and possibly publish it. If they do everyone that nominates gets a free copy when it is published. https://kindlescout.amazon.com/p/16HK3AREZRSLJ

    1. I have not heard of Kindle Scout before. Thank you so much for the suggestion! I will have to do that.
