Which books I read (or half-read) in 2017

Category : Books March 24, 2018

Few days ago I was discussing with a friend about books: which books are we reading now, which books are getting dust on side-tables, what genres interest us more and which books we read back in 2017. When I tried to answer the last question, I stumbled. Only two-three book titles came to my mind. So I decided to make an effort and remember one-by-one the books I read (or half-read) in 2017. And here is my list:

  1. The servant leader by James A. Autry
  2. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
  3. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck by Mark Manson
  4. Dance Dance Dance by Haruki Murakami
  5. What I talk when I talk about running by Haruki Murakami
  6. The boy and his dog by Ellison (not a book, but still a reading that left its mark on me)
  7. The curious case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald
  8. The blind assassin by Margaret Atwood (half-read)
  9. Steppenwolf by Hermann Hesse (half-read)
  10. SIddhartha by Hermann Hesse (half-read)
  11. Women who run with the wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes (half-read)
  12. Komm ich erzähl dir eine Geschichte by Jorge Bucay (half-read)
