FAVOURITE NON-FICTION OF 2017 (5/5)
While I love losing myself in fictional worlds, sometimes it‘s just as fulfilling to learn more about the world I‘m in.

My absolute fav non-fiction book of 2017 says a lot about me as a person. This book was huge in helping me overcome my anxiety about mess. And in improving my home environment, that also helped my anxiety. It‘s got simple, practical solutions I continue to use. I love it!

FAVOURITE NON-FICTION OF 2017 (4/5)
While I love losing myself in fictional worlds, sometimes it‘s just as fulfilling to learn more about the world I‘m in. Here are my favourite non-fiction books I read last year.

Kleon‘s little black book played a large part in inspiring me to get back into drawing. Since I‘ve read it I‘ve done more drawing in a few months then I have in years. For that it gets a spot on my list!

FAVOURITE NON-FICTION OF 2017 (3/5)
While I love losing myself in fictional worlds, sometimes it‘s just as fulfilling to learn more about the world I‘m in. Here are my favourite non-fiction books I read last year.

The third book I adored last year was one that inspired me to be braver in the face of difficult conversations. It‘s my first time reading Brené Brown and I‘m hooked. Her writing is energizing.

FAVOURITE NON-FICTION OF 2017 (2/5)
While I love losing myself in fictional worlds, sometimes it‘s just as fulfilling to learn more about the world I‘m in. Here are my favourite non-fiction books I read last year.

The next books I want to highlight is Trevor Noah‘s fantastic autobio about growing up mixed race in S. Africa. However you feel about the man‘s politics, this account is moving and eye-opening. I adored the audio.

FAVOURITE NON-FICTION OF 2017 (1/5)
While I love losing myself in fictional worlds, sometimes it‘s just as fulfilling to learn more about the world I‘m in. Here are my favourite non-fiction books I read last year.

The 1st on the list being Solnit‘s moving collection of essays. Solnit manages to communicate issues of everyday sexism with words that I can arm myself with. I‘ll definitely be rereading this one in the near future

It was a great year for manga, with only a handful of titles being stinkers and a huge pile being good if not great. Some of my absolute favorites this year include continuing series Chi‘s Sweet Home and Ajin: Demi-Human, and new series—Attack on Titan, Immortal Hounds, and Wandering Island. I can only hope 2018 offers the same wealth of titles 😁 #favouritebooks2017

Borne: A Novel | Jeff VanderMeer

FAVOURITE BOOKS OF 2017 (5/5)
And my absolute favourite read this year was Borne, by the wonderful Jeff Vandermeer! It was a weird, fascinating mix of sci-fi and fantasy, a faery tale in a post-apocalyptic world. A moving examination of personhood and agency. This goes on the list of ALL TIME FAVOURITES! #favouritebooks2017

FAVOURITE BOOKS OF 2017 (4/5)
Of all the books I read this last year, here are my five absolute favourites. My no. 2 favourite is My Lesbian Experience With Loneliness. One of the best depictions of mental health I‘ve ever read in a manga. Nagata‘s explanation of self-harm was especially well done. On top of that, it‘s a fantastic memoir that gives a glimpse as to what it‘s like to be queer in Japan. #favouritebooks2017

The Complete Maus | Art Spiegelman

FAVOURITE BOOKS OF 2017 (3/5)
Of all the books I read this last year, here are my five absolute favourites. No. 3 is a truly powerful work: Maus by Art Spiegelman. One of the best books I‘ve read about the holocaust experience, and one of the best graphic novels I‘ve encountered. It‘s a classic for a reason! #favouritebooks2017
