Book Notes

Here you’ll find a list of books I’ve read recently, along with a brief summary of my main takeaways from that book. A good page to bookmark and check back with occasionally if you’re ever in need of some reading inspiration.

Cover for Soul of an Octopus

The Soul of an Octopus

Sy Montgomery is a brilliant nature writer. This deep dive into the rich inner lives of octopuses is both funny and fascinating, and it had me hooked from start to finish.

Cover for Circe


This minor character from Homer’s Odyssey is brilliantly brought to life by Madeline Miller. I could not put this book down and still find myself thinking about it months later.

Cover for The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet

The Long Way To A Small, Angry Planet

They say it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. It’s a fitting description of this book, too. I had a lot of fun following this crew as they tackle a dangerous mission to the center of the galaxy.

Cover for A Guide To The Good Life

A Guide To The Good Life

Achieving tranquility in a tumultuous world can sometimes feel impossible. This book breaks down lessons from Stoic wisdom, with real-life examples of how to apply them in the modern world.
