Reading List

These are books that have had a deep and meaningful impact on my growth, my thinking, the way I write, and the way I choose to live my life. Some of them were audiobook versions, some of them I’ve got in paperback. Either way, they all have something integral to offer the human mind, and prompted important questions that, in some cases, I’m still trying to find answers to.

This list is in no specific order and contains my favorite books ranging from my earliest reads up to what I’m currently discovering.
