Conservative Reads

Part of the impetus behind starting this blog was the numerous requests I had on my book related posts on another website,, to give book recommendations or start a bookclub, so this site has to include a recommendation of my favorite conservative reads!

I’ve known I was a conservative since elementary school, but I really got grounded in my conservatism in college. Attending a liberal university will really put you in touch with your conservatism! I got an awesome opportunity after my freshman year to intern with the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute, and we had a book club in the office! We read God and Man at Yale and And the Good News Is and even got to review them! The summer after my sophomore year, I landed an internship at Regnery Publishing and got to work on conservative books all summer! Through my work with both companies and my own reading, I’ve compiled this list of 25 conservative books that you should read to! They include some great classic conservative books and newer releases!

  1. God and Man at Yale by William F Buckley Jr
  2. And the Good News Is by Dana Perino
  3. Assault and Flattery by Katie Pavlich
