Changes day to day based on the book I am reading, but more and more they 40+. The younger ones are fun to read but harder to relate to now that I am in my later 40s.

If you could only have three books to read for the rest of your life, what would they be?
The books would definitely be by Kristen Ashley, most likely from her “Berg” series, but not sure I could narrow down to 3.
