The Reads: Books That I Read During That Time…

In this continuation, I had listed the books that I started reading during that particular time. I’m fond of collecting and buying books throughout the years, yet I feel like reading some of them at a later time. Sometimes, I tend to browse a few pages of a book before reading it to help me focus on a particular story or plot.

The previous list shows the first book that I read, the first book that I finished, the book with the most number of pages that I already read and so on. Now, it’s time to list some of the books that I read during that year.  It also includes the manga and graphic novels that I’ve read at the end of this list. They’re all in no particular order. Note that I didn’t list ALL of the books that I’ve already read, just the favorites. And of course, I excluded the books that I haven’t finished yet.
