The following books are the ones that I find myself going back to again and again over the years. They are my absolute favorites of the hundreds that I’ve read over the course of my lifetime. You’ll see vastly different genres listed here, but most I’d say fall under Fantasy or Sci-Fi.
Most of these won’t have reviews on the blog, because I’ve read them so many times it would be hard for me to be fair, or even come up with something more than !!! to say about them. Mostly, just know that if you ask me what I think you should read next, my answer is probably going to be on this list!
