Since I’ve been alive since 1996, I’ve definitely read more books than just these ones listed. However, 2011 is when I began keeping this list. So there may be books I’ve read which do not appear here, like most of Roald Dahl’s books, many children’s picture books, the entire Uglies series by Scott Westerfield, and more. If you’re curious if I’ve read a certain book or not, then please feel free to message me!
