For my cousin Sophie’s 16th birthday, I compiled a brief list of all of the best books that I’d read to date. Before my twenties, my reading diet was almost exclusively fiction, and since my cousin was thinking about pursuing creative writing as a career, this seemed like a great gift. She thought so, too.
Fast forward to 2019, her 30th birthday. It seemed like a good time to make an updated list. But I wanted to create a hand-made book and make it more visually appealing, reflecting my newly acquired design skills, and create a more expansive list that included visual media such as movies and television shows. Thus, thirty recommendations for her 30th birthday was born (finally delivered two years later).
