Stories

Why do humans love stories so much? What is it in us that draws us to tales of dragons or romance or mystery? We’ve been telling each other stories for thousands of years and I don’t see us slowing down anytime soon. Stories make us who we are as a whole and as an individual. A great story even has the power to change us.

I just recently finished my doctorate so I’ve been spending a lot of time lately trying to catch up on all of the stories I haven’t had the chance to read. My top three so far this year:

1. The Passage Trilogy by Justin Cronin

2. Beartown by Fredrick Backman

3. Those Who Wish Me Dead by Michael Koryta

What are your top three this year?

(I’m always looking for a good recommendation!)
