One of the best ways (in my opinion) to improve in your target language is by reading. I have talked about this quite a few times and I will probably continue to do so! However, I know that it can be difficult to choose what to read depending on your level, so I decided to create this page on the blog. This will be a list of all the books and e-books that I have read in Korean (not including study books though), sorted in beginner, intermediate and advanced categories.
I absolutely love reading and often do so even when it’s not to improve my language skills and because of that I often find myself reading books that are way under my level as well as way over.
I figured you guys might find my experiences useful so here you go!
The list will be updated as I read new books.
NOTE: I have read a ton of webtoons and online novels as well, however, I will not be adding those to this list, as some of them aren’t available anymore and I feel like it’s useless to recommend online novels when they might not be available tomorrow.
If you click on a title then the link will take you to a site where you can buy it yourself.
Intermediate level books:
– 이상한 나라의 앨리스
– 빨간머리 앤
– 버드나무에 부는 바람
– 목사의 기쁨 (I can only find this novel as a part of Roald Dahl’s short story books, so you get a lot more than just one story if you buy it. However, I have only read 목사의 기쁨 and cannot rate the rest of the stories yet.)
– 나에게 고맙다
– 당신의 조각들
– 말 그릇
– 피터 래빗
– 샌프란시스코 화랑관 (만화) 1-6 (This is also available on Naver webtoon for free, though as mentioned above, it might not always be)
