Book Reviews

“I have always imagined paradise will be a kind of library.” -Jorge Luis Borges

Books provide intriguing insight, exciting entertainment, and profound pondering. I lose myself in a book to gain something I previously didn’t know about the world.

Here, I have written reviews for those books that have positively affected my life. I hope that within these pages, you, too, can glean some life lessons as I have.

These book reviews are alphabetized by title.
