Recommended Reads

At Sweat Drenched Press, we know that many authors do not get the recognition they deserve, whether that be because their work is not considered to be 'worthy' by the mainstream world or because their work doesn't get spoken about or 'advertised' enough to end up in the hands of others. 

So, this year, Zak has pulled together a list of 32 books that he has enjoyed reading the most this year. Laura has advised that Zak is not to put any of his own books on this list and he actually listened! 

So, in no particular order, here are 32 of SDPs most recommended reads.
