2022 Reading List Review

2022 Reading List Review

January 6th, 2023  |  Published in Books, Personal

Here is the list of books I read last year. Typically, I read a lot more. The major impediment was losing about three to four months just finishing my Master’s degree, trying to publish my research, and moving to Turkey. This turned out to be a reasonably light year in the reading department.

Hands down, the best book was the first book. Jason Stanley is a brilliant writer, academic, and philosopher. This year was my first foray into Umberto Eco and Albert Camus, both talented authors. I also tried to read poetry for the first time, which was fun. I also half-read many books about pursuing a Ph.D., research, and academic writing.

The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene took me the longest to complete. Although it was a hard book to read, it was beautifully researched and written.
