My Top Reads: The Drizzt Series
Okay, so a series may not be something you might expected as a top read but this is an excellent series by R.A. Salvatore. It is high fantasy with elves, dwarves, and the like so fans of that genre should definitely check out this series.
The series has been running for several years and follows the adventures of a drow (dark elf) named Drizzt Do'urden. Every book in the series is good but there is definitely an order in which they have to be read though the titles do little to help you get it straight. When in doubt, just Google it.

Putting something you've created out there for the public is always a terrifying experience. You never know what others will think about something that' you've put hours, days, months, or even years of time into. And that's amplified even more in today's world of total connectivity where something can go viral around the world in mere minutes. A negative review can go from just local to worldwide at the click of a button where the vultures of the Internet can just pile on at will.
Someone once said that to be an author you had to first develop thick skin.

My Top Reads: The 5 Love Languages
Much like my first top read, this one might come as a bit of a surprise. Yes, I write fiction. Yes, I read fiction. But The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman is not a work of fiction. And yes, it really is one of my all-time top reads.
Mister Chapman's book is something of a self-help book and has helped me tremendously. The book discusses the different way people, primarily people in relationships, communicate. Communication is not always verbal but just like with spoken languages, people communicate with each other through different unspoken languages and this book breaks those languages down into 5 simple categories.
