Books 2017

Below is a list of books I’ve read in 2017.

The letters ‘f’, ‘nf.’ and ‘m’ in the parentheses indicate which type of book it was; ‘f’ refers to ‘fiction’ books, ‘nf’ to ‘non-fiction’ books, and the ‘m’ category covers ‘miscellaneous’ books. The numbers in the parentheses correspond to the goodreads ratings I thought the books deserved.

As usual I’ll try to update the post regularly throughout the year.

1. Brief Candles (3, f). Manning Coles.

2. Galaxies: A Very Short Introduction (4, nf. Oxford University Press). Blog coverage here.
