I‘m a big re-reader so I wanted to do a #Top21of21 for books that weren‘t new to me. Many of these are old friends, and some I returned to just to see if they would hold up. This is actually only 20 because that‘s what would fit in the collage, but I told myself I‘m saving space for whatever I read next week 😁
Cutting For Stone was my favorite the rest are in no particular order. Looking at these I can see how all of the great challenges like #FoodAndLit #PemberLittens and #ReadingAsia have influenced my reading year. Honestly I just kind of want to hug the books on this list.
I rated a lot of re-reads 5 stars this year but I left them off this list
The last two weeks of the year are typically my best reading weeks so this list will change
I enjoyed this book about Bangladeshi immigrants in London. It had some rough spots to be sure, but overall a good internal novel if you like that sort of thing (and I do.)
I alternated between print and audio and thought this worked well in both formats.

The last day of Nonfiction November. I can‘t believe it! I‘ve been coming across the Silk Road in my #ReadingAsia pursuits, and enjoyed flipping through this book. Next week I‘m going to take myself on a field trip to the Smithsonian to see some of this art for myself.
Today I learned a little about how the collection at the Sackler Gallery came to be.
My tentative plans for #Booked2022 #WinterSeason . Of course, it‘s weeks away and I‘m sure I‘ll keep adjusting. Especially as I make decisions about other challenges.
2. I Am I Am I Am
3. The Poppy War (alternative version of China)
4. The Rainbow Comes and Goes
5. My Vanishing Country (from Amistad / Harper Collins)
6. Prodigal Summer (eco-feminist)
Wow wish I would have read @DGRachel post about Ghost Month before reading it because that review really sums up the story well! This is by far my least favorite book of the year. #ReadingAsia #Taiwan
