      Thank you!

  3. Lav says:

    I look forward to this every year! The list of 2017 is a nice blend of old and new. Best wishes for 2018! Same goals, different books… 😉

    1. Sukanya Ramanujan says:

      I don’t know about same goals 😛 but yes definitely different books

  4. How did you like “Munich” by Robert Harris?
    I really liked his “An Officer and a Spy” about the Dreyfus affair, so I am inclined to get “Munich”, too.

    1. Sukanya Ramanujan says:

      I liked it- shows Neville Chamberlain in an interesting light and of course there’s the usual Robert Harris page turning elements as well. You can finish it in 6-7 hours.

  5. “The Hidden Life of Trees” is quite fascinating, isn’t it?
    I have always enjoyed forests, but since that book, I walk through them with even more awe.

    1. Sukanya Ramanujan says:

      I agree, I loved that book. I knew trees were intelligent and alive but had never understood how deep their awareness and intelligence went. And then we just mow through, destroying forests indiscriminately 😦

  6. Little Miss Sunshine says:

    Yummy is how I would describe it! 🙂
    Lots of Atwoods I see. How many re-reads this time? Here’s to a fantabulous 2018 with even lovelier books to the collection.

    1. Sukanya Ramanujan says:

      I read two books by Atwood. I didn’t even count the re-reads in this list but I did read 3-4 books from before (including some Harry Potter). Thanks so much- I wish you a great 2018 as well
