If I were you (ugh)
So many great books didn’t make the cut. Every book I’ve read this year had an impact and was important in my overall reading history. Even the ones that weren’t all that great. This was the year that I have read more books in my entire life. And most of them in english (which is not my mother language but it is my favorite) and ebooks (which is a format I just recently discover that I really enjoy).

Overall a great reading year!
