Former President Barack Obama has continued his tradition of sharing his most “thought-provoking” and “inspiring” books, movies and music that helped shape his year.

“It also gives me a chance to highlight talented authors, artists, and storytellers – some who are household names and others who you may not have heard of before,” he wrote on Facebook on Friday.

The country’s 44th president picked Michelle Obama’s best selling memoir Becoming as his “favorite” book. He also included Shane Bauer’s American Poison and Immigrant, Montana by Amitava Kumar.

Obama included Marvel’s record-breaking Black Panther as one of his favorite movies, alongside BlacKkKlansman, If Beale Street Could Talk and Roma.

He also shared with his followers his eclectic taste in music by adding songs such as “Apesh*t” by The Carters, “Girl Goin’ Nowhere” by Ashley McBryde, “I Like It” by Cardi B and Prince’s “Mary Don’t You Weep.”
