Last year I re-ignited my love for reading. This time around, I'm highlighting the books that have changed my perspective and some honourable mentions. The rest I've listed for completion sake but I'm not particularly tied to them for any reason.

This book meandered a bit but the overall argument was interesting. I'm now dedicating more time to proving myself wrong. Although light-hearted, it changed the way I think.
