We are so excited to begin another year of reading together. With physical travel paused, we were even more grateful to travel around the world through the pages of great books. Take a moment to revisit the 12 amazing books we read in 2020—and share your favorites with a friend!
Now, as we look to the year ahead, we are eager for more reading, more exploring, and more learning. And we're so excited that you're along for the ride!
We're kicking off the year with a hot debut novel: A Burning by Megha Majumdar.
Set in contemporary India, Majumdar's debut novel is a "gripping thriller with compassionate social commentary" (USA Today) that centers on the story of Jivan, a young girl growing up in an impoverished slum community.
A Burning was a National Book Award Longlist honoree, called a "must-read novel" by The Washington Post, and referred to by The New York Times Book Review as "Riveting...This is a novel of our pandemic times."
We can't wait to read with you this year and kick off a new season with such a highly anticipated novel.
Cheers to a new year full of great books!
