Book Reviews

I like to read a variety of things. But usually the things that I like to read and discuss later are non-fiction, research-ish books, or my guilty pleasure – science fiction novels or explorations of dystopian futures. I have a Kindle Unlimited subscription so I tend to read a lot of whatever is offered for free.

Below is a list of books I’ve read and links to my opinions of them. Take a look, leave a comment, let’s discuss!
