TFG Filipino ReaderCon 2013 Recommendations List

One of the activities of the 2013 Filipino ReaderCon was the Book Recommendation Fair. Our book club, Goodreads – The Filipino Group, came up with these lists by voting for the books that the members would like to recommend. Since I have read only a few among these books, I decided to include this in my reading goals (and because I trust the recommendations of my bookish friends).
