My Boyfriend Describes My Favourite Books

I am a huge bookworm, but this isn’t as true for some of the people I surround myself with. My boyfriend, for example, is not as avid a reader as I am. He’s suggested me several books, and I’ve given him some gentle tips too, but our reading tastes don’t exactly match up.
