Books Galore ~ A Lovingly Curated List of Non-Fiction Books

Posted on

Words have so much power; the power to inspire, invigorate, open your mind, disrupt belief’s or guide you.

I decided to start keeping a list of all the best non-fiction books that I read regarding nature, writing, photography, art, biographies, etc, and I will have “other” books that I read to learn more about characters/worlds I am writing about (ie. Human Psychology and Life). I write fantasy, urban fantasy and murder mystery, so sometimes there’s a book here under that genre.
