1. A Little Life by Hanya Yanigahara

I read this over the summer and have probably recommended it to everybody I know at least three times since then. It is an amazingly written novel that explores traumatic childhood abuse but also the universal human capacity for kindness, forgiveness, and unconditional love. The four days in which I read this were probably the most I’ve ever cried — never have I so strongly wanted to give a fictional character a hug.

2. Mystic River by Dennis Lehane

Hands down my favorite book, Mystic River is written as a mystery but expressed as a Greek tragedy. You could be any one of the three main characters. And who would you turn out to be given the experiences that these “ordinary” people have lived? Are we born with characteristics that will turn us into bad people or will we choose something better? A fantastic story that is driven by the characters with an ending that will shock you. Not for the faint of heart…

3. Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari

This book forces you to rethink all the choices you’ve made — and will make — trying to navigate the waters of love in the internet age. It’s surprising how serious and thoughtful the writing can be, but Aziz’s voice still radiated throughout. I was actually laughing out loud throughout the whole thing and couldn’t put it down.

4. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

I couldn’t stop talking about The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. It’s hard to describe without making it sound too odd, but basically this book is about a circus that is used as a sort of battleground for two magicians who are supposed to be competing against each other but end up falling in love. The writing is absolutely incredible; this book seriously feels like a work of art. Even if the premise sounds really odd, it’s worth reading because Morgenstern’s writing is just so gorgeous and amazing.
