Books

null
Here is the list of my reading list + book reviews.
As for fiction, I’m normally attracted to the 19th- and 20th- century classics that have had many decades since its publication to prove its greatness to the world readership. I love romance, history, politics and female protagonists. Diversity is the foremost criteria in my selection of books, whether it be the setting, genre, story, writer’s background, literary themes, etc.
As for non-fiction, I’m only drawn to titles that catch my practical interests such as improving people skills and becoming successful and happy in life. The most memorable non-fictions I have read so far are Michael Sandel’s Justice and Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers. I’ll write those reviews as soon as I get myself seriously into non-fiction ūüôā
