My Adventures with God by Stephen Tobolowsky
Character actor, Stephen Tobolowsky, has penned one of the funniest and most engaging books that I’ve read in a long time. Despite the title, the book isn’t religious in nature. You’ll find yourself laughing out loud, so be careful where you read it!

Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance
This is a fascinating read that inspired me, as it will others, to not get caught up in what seems to be your destiny, or what others may have predetermined to be your destiny, based upon your upbringing. Vance, through this soul-searching memoir, reminded me of how our own personal struggles can be traced back to our individual family histories.

Storm by Carian Cole
A little steamier than I usually read, but the concept of getting stuck with a stranger in a truck during a blizzard absolutely hooked me. It was a fun read that had me eagerly turning the pages.

The Late Show by Michael Connelly
Michael is a master storyteller, and I’m always eager to read his latest book. This bestseller didn’t disappoint, and as always, he stretches me as a writer.
