Let's talk about books!

I'm a big fan of lifelong learning. The best (and cheapest) way to do that? Reading, of course! Every once in awhile, I'll add to the list of my favorite reads in Recommended Reading posts. And if I find a little time, I'll add all of the books from every post right here. 


If you do read any of my faves—or have a must-read recommendation you're dying to pass along—drop me a line and let me know! I'd love to hear your thoughts.


Set in the 60s and the 90s, American Pastoral feels remarkably relevant for our time.

A Pulitzer Prize winner. Set in WWII France and Germany, told from two unusual perspectives.

Another relevant read about race in America; set in post-WWII and the 90s.

Reveals the science and the human truth behind OCD and mental illness. Hint: it's not just hand washing. A must read for people who love people with mental illness.

A historic WWI setting with a surprising twist.

For people of faith: when you're unsure about your purpose, take heart. Deidra Riggs wrote this book for you.
