Hi booklovers,

So since most people have a reading challenge in their new year’s resolutions, I thought I will add my 52 books list. I’m posting this 3 weeks later, but you can either skip it or squeeze it somewhere. Reading one book per week is quite manageable and definitely doable.

So put down your excuses and pick up your books.  

The list consists of books that I have read or that I want to read it. The books that I haven’t read yet are in Italics and the books that I want you to absolutely read are in bold.  The books are quite different, some are meaningful and life changing and some are for fun, that you can read it in one day.
