I love everything that has to do with lists, goal setting, and self-improvement, which is why I thought I would publicize the books and plays that I have read so far. So here it is! If you like these types of lists, you might also like to check out my list of the best musicals of all time, or my list of theatre TED talks, ranked!

no stars = books I did not enjoy
*    = books I liked/thought were ok
**  = books I enjoyed/really enjoyed
*** = books I loved/would definitely recommend

⭐ = plays/librettos I found to be particularly special
