Summer Reading: The 15 Books I Couldn’t Put Down (Since Retiring)

Over the past few years, I have often shared the best books I’ve ever read, reviewed many on this site, and asked for recommendations.

I’ve read 75+ books since launching this site, and have found some new favorites.

Here are my top 10 non-fiction books of the past 3.5 years:

  1. Atomic Habits  by James Clear (my review)
  2. The Lion Tracker’s Guide to Life by Boyd Varty
  3. Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins (my review)
  4. Four Thousand Weeks by Olver Burkeman (my review)
  5. Israel by Noa Tishby
  6. The Rational Optimist by Matt Ridley
  7. Outlive by Peter Attia
  8. The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande
  9. A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson
  10. Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker (my review)

All of the above are great and varying genres. I don’t think you can go wrong with any of them.

And my top fictional books:

  1. Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir
  2. Dune by Frank Herbert
  3. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
  4. The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss
  5. The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson (Book 1 of 5)

I’ll continue to do reviews as I make the time, but in the meantime…what was your favorite book from the last few years?
