Prior to setting up this book blog, I have already been writing and publishing my notes through another platform, Goodreads. Instead of cross-posting all of those to this site, however, I have opted to provide the links instead, alphabetically by title. Please do note, however, that for some of the books that I've read some years back, I've only written very brief - some, one- or two-liners - notes. :)

For a (little) more complete list of the books I've read, including those without reviews (but with ratings), please visit my read shelf. Most of the titles there have been read so long ago, a reread is in order prior to writing any kind of review, so as to give justice to the book and the author, as well.

Thanks for dropping by! :)
