When it comes to reading, my go to genres are outdoor adventure, memoir, non-fiction and Indigenous fiction. I look to books for real life stories, information, research, and Indigenous perspectives; books that are thought provoking and offer a different point of view.

Because I don’t read a lot, a book has to be really good for me to stick to it. This list includes some of my favourites and I hope you find something that peaks your interest.
