Book Club – 2019 Edition

Reading has always been something I knew the importance of, but it wasn’t until recently that I could commit to reading multiple books a month. I was challenged by Jesse Schaudies, a teammate of mine, to a competition where we would see who could read more books throughout the year. I am happy to report that I won the competition by reading 28 books that ranged from war stories delivered by Naval officers to fiction tales about an apocalyptic future.

I enjoyed everything I read this year but here are my top five favorites:
