Books that I have read since August 2014.

Starting from August 2014, I have decided to keep a record of the books that I have read or am currently reading. This list is just for my own personal recollection, but once in a while if I find the book very appealing I may post a review somewhere.

The books which are marked with a ** are the ones that I am either currently reading or have not read completely but plan to do so in the future.

All the books that I read are rated on Goodreads.
