Reading has done so much for my well-being, confidence, and relationships, that it’s hard to imagine a time when I wasn’t doing it.

These lists have been put together to track my personal progress but feel free to use them as a guide for creating your own bookshelf if needed.

You can also find them on GoodReads or Audible if you’re a member.
