I figured since nobody uses Goodreads anymore, it is doomed ineffective to push me harder to read more. So, to make sure of the embarrassment I will endure if I don’t read more than single-digit number of titles in a year, here’s a list of my reads, currently reading, to-reads and to-re-reads:

PS: I needed so much time to finish this book because —holy cow— this is a way better sleeping aid than Xanax. One page down and I fell asleep, almost every night. Finally powered through the last 100 pages in 3 days time because this book made me lose appetite to read anything else and I knew it needs to get solved. In short, I recommend this if you’re having trouble sleeping at night; very effective.
