I have a wide array of books that I love to read and wanted to share with you all of my reviews here in one place. I mainly stick to either running or hiking-related books or sometimes throw in a fiction book. I'm always looking for a new book to read, so feel free to send me a book recommendation!

Into The Woods by Tana French 3* - great ending, a bit slow middle for me
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. 4*
ROAR by Dr. Stacy Sims 5* - a MUST READ for any active woman. She really knows what she’s talking about and has helped me re-assess so many of my fitness goals/ nutrition habits based on my hormones/ body type.
Us Against You by Fredrik Backman 3* it took me a while to get fully invested in this sequel, but the last 100 pages - I couldn’t put it down!
