Booooks!

One of the things that I really want to do is read as many books as I can — the reason why I chose English as one of my minors at the University of Toronto. To keep track of all these books, I decided to create this page and update it if I finish a new book. If I have time, then you will see that there’s going to be a link if I write something about the book.

If you have any suggestions, please feel free to comment on this page. I’m not picky when it comes to the genre/theme/type. But I am usually drawn to graphic novels, fantasy, romance and non-fiction [more of the self-help books in general, startups/business and bios], young adult and investigative. So feel free to share what book you enjoyed recently even if that doesn’t fall in any of these categories.

Disclaimer: Please note that this list is a work in progress and not all the books I’ve read are listed here (Unfortunately, I usually suffer from “What’s-its-title-again syndrome” – another reason why I started this page!). What you will see here are mostly some of what I have just read or re-read. Also, the numbers are not the books’ rankings, just to count them really. Enjoy!
