Mission ‘Read 100 Books’ Accomplished


‘Books are a uniquely portable magic’ – Stephen King

30th December, 2015: I’d created a resolution for myself on the same day, last year, to complete at least 100 books in 2016. To be honest, I’d never imagined I would complete this task. With my work and everything going on, it was highly doubtful.

But, I surprised myself; by mid-year I’d resolved to complete as many books as I could and try and finish the Hercules task. Mercifully, reading for me is a habit more than anything and finishing the books turned out to be a cake walk (or not).

30th December, 2016: Today, I’m pretty proud of myself to have completed the resolution I made (for once I actually completed a resolution). Hence, I thought to dedicate this post to give you a consolidated list of 15 books that I read and liked this year. I would be giving my reviews on the following books in the coming posts. I haven’t included all the 100 books in the list, though if you really do want me to give you the entire list, feel free to leave a comment / email, I’ll be happy to share the same!
