“‘Jumping Through Fires’ by David Nasser. It’s about an Iranian refugee’s experience in the United States growing up as a child.”
“Steven Havill. He writes books about New Mexico. It’s a Posadas County sheriff and he talks about all these places and he describes them so beautifully you can just feel yourself there.”
“I like Stephen King books. I like all of them. It’s the way he writes and I love that it’s scary.”
“‘John Lennon: The Life’ by Philip Norman. I’m really into The Beatles. It’s all about the man. It focuses on his solo stuff and his life.”
“‘In the Garden of Beasts’ by Erik Larson. It’s about how Hitler got away with what he did, written in story form. It’s going to try to explain how things could get that wild and horrible with nobody stopping Hitler.”
