Favorite Books

So many! Love a ton of YA: The Hunger Games, We Were Liars, The Fault in Our Stars, Looking for Alaska, If I Fall, Summer Sisters. Love anything that Gillian Flynn has ever written and I'm also a huge fan of memoirs and non-fiction. Total and proud bookworm.

Favorite Quotes

"Never be satisfied with success and never fear failure." That's something my dad told me once and it's become a quote I live by. Take chances. Push for more. Challenge yourself always.
