24 Books for 24 Years

Happy Birthday to me!!!

A completely self-indulgent list of books.

I like books. A lot.

Case in point: my freshman year of college was spent mostly creeping through bookstores, dishing out money I didn’t have, to distract myself from friends who didn’t exist. Ha.

TLDR; books are my most valued companions. Here are twenty-four of them which, far better or worse, have left their footprints all over my twenty four years:


1. Kokoro by Natsume Soseki

My favorite novel of all time. Soseki writes about “the heart of things,” the words and gestures which can drive us to tragedy, with stark simplicity. A book where the smallest of actions reap fatal consequences. I love this book so much I could never do it justice. SO JUST READ IT.
