Books I've Read in 2017

  1. A gift from my 2016 secret santa, @pili_ervin!
  2. It's not weird to cry when you finish a book just for the sole reason that there aren't any more pages to read and you already miss it, right? Asking for a friend.
  3. Dan Harris comes across as such an endearingly normal guy, with plenty of humor and skepticism. It's a good choice for people curious about meditation who'd rather dip a toe in than dive straight into the deep end with the gurus.
  4. I love this book so much that I reread it every couple of years, always in the spring/summer. @supercommonname, if you haven't read it, I think you should - it's about kids saving the world by playing baseball, and it's magical.
  5. I read this for the first time almost exactly 10 years ago, and re-read it now because apparently I wanted to bawl my eyes out while everyone else in the house sleeps. It's romantic and lovely, and also heartbreaking.
  6. It was strange, all right. Not sure about the "wonderfully" part. It was about a group of girls that live together in a walled garden and are being raised under unusual circumstances by two women who call themselves "Aunty" and "Mother." I was intrigued enough to want to find out what happens, but I'm not sure I'd tell anyone to rush out and read it.
  7. Ooh, I liked this one. It felt a little more traditional than Neverwhere and American Gods (and thankfully not as gruesome as Neverwhere), and I'm always in favor of a little romance.
