Book Recommendations from Josh and Daien

In the 12th episode of our Writers, Readers, and the Stories We Love livestreams, Daien Sanchez and I discussed a list of some of our favorite books from various genres. If you missed it, you can listen to the full conversation below. I’ve also written up the complete list of titles and authors we discussed plus a couple bonus books we didn’t mention by name at the time. It’s far from a comprehensive list, and I organized titles in the order that we referenced them.

The genres and styles range all over the place, so take a look and maybe find your next read (or several). There are plenty more titles and authors we didn’t have time to mention, so stay tuned for future livestreams or follow us on social media for more recommendations.

As we mentioned, you can also follow both of us on Goodreads:
