Suggested Reads

Books I’ve enjoyed.

Sometimes it’s nice to get recommendations of good reads. Throughout this blog I’ve been doing so and providing links to buy them (other options are available of where to buy them, but for ease I’ve listed the same website).

Seeing as a lot of us are having sometime off at the moment I decided to collect all my suggestions together.

I’ll update this as I go along. These are just books I like, I’m not going to try and sell them to you (although if you want to buy mine that would be nice and there is another page to do so). I’m just giving names and authors, if you want to know more you can look into them (personally I like to know as little as possible about a book before I read it):
