I love re-reading books, I love noticing things I didn't the first time. It's also why I only keep books I would re-read.

 I've had a pretty bad reading year. It got worse these past few months though. But there have been some shining beacons for me that really helped while being in the darkest timeline. I thought this list was going to be really short since I had a really bad reading slump all of October and half of September, and some of these books I forgot that I read this year. Everything before April feels like a thousand years ago.
