Here are a couple of observations from this year’s list:
• Many thanks to the publishers for giving me the opportunity to read these books which I may have not discovered on my own.
• I love that I made an intentional goal to read more books from South Asian authors this year. It’s great to see that some of those books have made into into my top reads of the year.
