I have not read any of the books on your list except 'fangirl' which I didn't like at all. I thought it was kind of boring, I guess it's not a book for me.

have a lovely day.

I really want to read Lab Girl so glad to see it was one of your favorites this year! I also like the sound of Resistance, Rebellion, Life and I don't read enough poetry. Looks like a nice diverse list! Have a great holiday - hope you get some time for reading!

@Stephanie Lab Girl was not at all what I expected, but it was better; it was a love letter to botany and her longtime lab partner. I've really gotten into poetry lately, and that particular collection is a response to the political moment that I was really feeling!
