Temper by Nicky Drayden

Temper is a tale both harrowing and humorous about the adventures of twin brothers who battle their demons, literally and figuratively, in a culture where a person’s worth is determined by the virtues and vices assigned to them as a child. A craving for blood along with lechery, deceit, and vanity run rampant through a vividly imagined world in this dark fantasy that is riddled with mysteries and secrets at every surprising turn. - Trey

Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker

This is the most interesting and consequential book I’ve read in quite some time. Drawing on a wealth of research, UC Berkeley’s Matthew Walker presents a compelling argument that the power of sleep and dreams, properly utilized, can enhance the everyday lives of individuals and even society at large. Discard everything you thought you knew about sleep, read this book, change your habits, and reap the significant benefits of consistent quality sleep. - Trey
