The Alienist

This was profiling in its infancy, and as a fan of NCIS, Blue Bloods, and other cop shows, I found that to be so enjoyable.  Who was this guy?  Why did he do it?  How can they catch him before he kills again?

The Road to Character

What I loved about this book was its imperative to become a better person. It’s the kind of book that will stay on my shelf, passages marked with dog-eared pages, ready to provide inspiration when needed. 

The Birth of Venus

I usually don’t love books set in this time period because the age was so hard on women.  I can’t seem to reconcile the romanticism of the period with the reality, and makes me very uncomfortable when I read about it.  But this book was different.
