Books, etc.

Books, comics, manga, manhua, etc. Any written-text work that isn’t a game.

I only started tracking from ~2023 forwards, so a lot of older stuff from before that is probably missing from here.

Unless otherwise noted next to the book title, all books are read in English.

On ratings:

  • 1-3: Terrible
  • 4-6: Severe flaws
  • 7-8: Some flaws, would recommend if asked
  • 9-10: Highly recommended
  • Absent: No strong opinion or I haven’t thought about it enough

Partially Complete
