It was no secret while growing up that reading was my passion. From an early age I could be found, nose in book, escaping from my day to day life into a world where imagination thrived. As I’ve grown both physically and spiritually, my taste has changed and focused more on personal growth than escaping reality.  The following books have been instrumental in my growth (in order of reading):

1.  Charlotte’s Web – E.B. White

2. The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe – C.S. Lewis

3. Memnoch the Devil – Anne Rice


4. Essays and Poems – Ralph Waldo Emerson

5. All I Ever Really Needed to Know I Learned In Kindgarten – Robert Fulgham

6. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People – Steven R. Covey

7. The Road Less Traveled – M. Scott Peck

8. The Art of Happiness  – The Dalai Lama

9. The Tao of Pooh – Benjamin Hoff

10.  Yesterday, I cried – Iyanla Vanzant

11. The Celestine Prophecy – James Redfield

12. The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success – Depak Chopra

13. Eat Pray Love – Elizabeth Gilbert
