I keep getting requests for reading lists. So this is a page – separate from my International Reading Challenge, dedicated to simply informing you of the best books I’ve read or am yet to read. The list will constantly get longer and if you have any suggestions just comment them below. I’ll also include movies and series (when I have time). Enjoy xoxo
