Book List

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.

Beginner level books:
