I love reading. Since I am in grad school, I do not have as much time to read as I wish I did. But I still manage to fit it in on breaks and some weekends. Below is a list of my favorite books. I recommend them all to you! Click on the titles to learn more.


Karen Kingsbury-

She is my FAVORITE author!! All of her books are fantastic. My mom introduced me to these novels, and I am forever grateful. I am currently ready to start my third series of her books. I feel like I am living right next door to these families. If you are needing a good long series to read, you should totally pick these!!

Redemption Series

Firstborn Series


Sunrise Series

Stand Alones

The Beginning This is a prequel to The Bridge
The Bridge
The Chance

The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman. A very insightful read for anyone in any kind of relationship


All Things Possible Kurt Warner, he is amazing!!!!

It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life Lance Armstrong-whether you like him anymore or not, his story is still incredible

Take the Stairs SWA alum, Rory Vaden. So motivational and a very quick, easy read.

Navigate another SWA alum, Dustin Hillis. So motivational as a speaker, and a great read as well


The Great Gatsby LOVED the movie, but the book it always a classic
The Lucky One read this right before the movie came out. LOVE IT!! Gotta love Nicholas Sparks
The Guardian Another Nicholas Sparks. Definitely needs to be made into a movie!
Night Hoops by Carl Deuker. One of my favorite reads in middle school and high school. I practically have this book memorized I read it so many times!
