The Briefest Review

Two summers ago, I decided to start keeping a list of the books I read each year. I mostly wanted to read the classics that I had never read before, but I also had reading assignments for a masters program. Though I am a rather slow and thorough reader, I made my way through more literary works than probably any previous year. The past year of reading was diverse and interesting, at least. To save you from 17 reviews, I’ll just post a star by the ones I would gladly read again (some of which I have already read for the second time).
