My Reading List 2017

I’ve been keeping a note of books I’ve read, films I’ve seen and shows I’ve watched for years and love looking back at what I’ve encountered. I hope some of these recommendations (or warnings!) will come in use to you.

I read a mixture of fiction and non-fiction (mainly personal development) books. Any books that I’ve written more about will be hyperlinked, and I’ll keep updating throughout the year. Enjoy!
