    "4 3 2 1 was very meticulously organized, and if you skip any part of the book, you will be lost for the rest of it. This book really opened my mind, and I thought about it long after I finished reading it. Highly recommend for those who enjoy long literature. I would say this is among the best picks for early 2018. "

    "Exit West is a powerful and fascinating look at young love amid the backdrop of a war-torn country. But it is from early 2017, and can't really be considered a top-pick book for 2018."

    "This one is worth remembering. It felt a little rushed but the author is terrific. It can be a little cringey because it's a little raw but it's a emotional gut punch."
