Reading List

Updated on 1st of October, 2023

Here you can find the list of books I’ve read or am planning to read. This listing was started in 2022, but I’ve been reading a bunch before that, so this is not (yet!) fully complete. I’m planning on rereading a bunch of the books I’ve already read just to include those here, or at least the good ones.

* = reread
