My Recommended Books

I believe the more you read, the better you become. Notice that I don’t say if you read “X” books a month or “Y” type of book since the topic of the book is not essential. You’ll always learn something and, hopefully, have some fun, not to mention that reading is a great way to generate good ideas. Below you can find my recommended books based on the ones I’m reading starting in 2020. There is no defined order, only the one I finish reading them, so don’t be surprised to see some sagas in a row and then a different book. I’ll provide a star rating and a link for you to check it yourself. I thought about doing a review, but I’m always scared of giving something away from the story, and besides, what I like isn’t a guideline for what you may enjoy.

Finally, I’ll only publish books I finish. I start a lot of books, but if I’m not interested, I stop and start with the next one. There are so many good books out there that it doesn’t make sense to waste time in one I’m not enjoying, and there’s no place in my recommended books for the ones I don’t even finish.

I hope you find something you like, and please let me know on Twitter or comment with your thoughts.

Let’s start this incredible adventure together.
