On Reserve

I have stopped updating this list as of October 2018. For the latest list of what I am hoping to read, head over to my To-Read list on Goodreads.

I am constantly coming across new books that intrigue me.  The list stems from articles, book reviews, news stories, podcasts, gifts, or even my own bookshelf.  Despite my fast-paced reading schedule, I cannot possibly keep up.  On that same note, since joining Goodreads, I update this list once a month*.
