Crowd-Sourced Book List

Crowd-Sourced Book List

I asked for some book recommendations in my IG story and you guys came out in full force!! It made me so happy! Hundred of recommendations to sort through, but here were the top ones that came up a few times, some classic favorites, and another 40 or so for the over achievers :) Seems we're all highly interested in self growth and really beautiful prose. I just started A House in the Sky and it's fantastic thus far!! I'm thinking of starting a book club? Let me know if you're going to dig into any of these and maybe we can all coordinate. #adventurenerds for life.
