On Reflection: My Year In Books 2017


I picked up a book for pleasure this year for the first time in years — nearly five — and was reminded of how much I love to read. In the next few years, I want to work on reinvigorating that “reading bug” that I had for all of my childhood. In choosing a reading and writing heavy major [Philosophy] I was slightly robbed of the pleasure of reading and have lost the zeal I used to have in vigorously devouring novels.

A soft list of novels read in 2017, hopefully, one that will grow in the coming years.


+ The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson

+ Exit West by Mohsin Hamid {I attended one of his readings and was incredibly moved}

+ Losing an Enemy: Obama, Iran, and the Triumph of Diplomacy by Trita Parsi

+ Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

+ Commonwealth by Ann Patchett
