It's an old one, but this year I read The Emperor's Old Clothes by C.A.R. Hoare for the first time and it got me started in a Hoare rabbit hole, just a brilliant guy.

I read the annotated version on Fermat's Library - great source of interesting papers (http://fermatslibrary.com/s/the-emperors-old-clothes).
