Growing up, I considered reading a chore. I loathed it. Anytime I was assigned a reading assignment in school, it would take every ounce of motivation to flip past the first page.

But when I hit my early twenties, I started voraciously reading—mainly technical books. And now, as I’m approaching 30, I’m beginning to read a wide variety of genres: even fiction!

Below, you’ll find a list of books that I’ve been reading the past couple years. These books give you a little peak into my brain and piques my interest.
