I thought it would be good to compile a list of all of my previous book recommendations. I will continue to add to this list as I find more great fiction books, but it is just an easy, condensed way to view all of my recommendations. Also, it is a good way to review any places that you might have missed along the way.
If you are curious about knowing in more detail about a certain book, just click on the hyper-link to view my full recommendation.
I hope this list is useful to refer to as a guide, and I hope you find these books as fun to read as I did!
The Three Body Problem, Liu Cixin (Book 1: a good introduction book, but not on the same level as Books 2/3)
The Dark Forest, Liu Cixin (Book 2: the most interesting read, and definitely will have you thinking after you are finished)
Death’s End, Liu Cixin (Book 3, the most profound book, and the one that could change some of your preexisting beliefs on extraterrestrial life)
Exhalation (An incredible collection of short science fiction stories by Hugo and Nebula Award winning author Ted Chiang)
Crazy Rich Asians Series
Crazy Rich Asians, Kevin Kwan (An incredible series that was the inspiration of the Crazy Rich Asians movie; a must read for any fiction fan)
Norse Mythology, Neil Gaiman (A super interesting read to learn more about Greek legends; it is both fun and informative!)
The Alchemist, Paulo Coehlo (A book with so much symbolism and deeper meaning, reading it could have a big impact on your life)
The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, Jonas Jonasson (A fiction book following Allan Karlsson and his epic journey around the world meeting historical people such as Mao, Stalin, and Churchill)
Tai-Pan, James Clavell (One of the longest books that I have ever read, but it does a great job of mixing the history of Hong Kong while also creating such interesting characters and a fantastic storyline)

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
