Reading List

2017 Reading List

Me and my friend M. have started a book club couple of years ago and despite both leaving at the opposite ends of the world, we still manage to make it work.

For 2017 it was my turn to choose the 12 books we’ll be reading throughout the year. Book worms will know it wasn’t easy, this is why there will be two lists below; the 12 books list and the extra readings. Just because I like books and lists, the more the better.
