Reading List

This reading list are books that I’ve read and I really like or love. It is a personal list and it also contains some novels. The reason why I made this list is because a lot of people are asking me about book recommendations or what kind of books I am reading.

It is very convenient to be able to just send a link instead of trying to remember all the books people should read in my opinion ūüôā
