2017 was a good year for introverts, at least when it comes to books. There were a few cool books published about introversion. I came across three lovely comics and one essential nonfiction. Before I announce these books, let me explain why we need to read them. I find that I often have to convince people to read books or articles on this topic, so here goes. Continue reading
Left to my own devices, I tend to read too many comics and too little of everything else. In my defence, comics are fun, quick to read and easy to pack into one’s daily schedule. Some of them are also informative and inspiring. However, with my recent addiction to Webtoons, I’ve not been reading much novels and nonfiction. This year’s goodreads statistics came to me like an intervention, urging me to control my comics obsession (I actually have an “ongoing-obsessions” shelf on goodreads).

I often come across book lists that feature women writers. This women’s day, instead of giving you yet another list of books by (white) women, I wanted to share books for women and about women. No, this is not a list of “chick-lit”. And no, not a feminism 101 reading list either. I will post one in the future when I’m well read on the topic.
In this post, I will be sharing books that have meant a lot to me, that are on my must-read list and that are constantly being recommended to me. This list will be across genres but will feature books that center around women. Continue reading
