Goodreads Employees' Top Reads of 2021

"Every December, as we wrap up our annual Goodreads Reading Challenge, we ask our incredibly well-read colleagues an incredibly tough question:

What were your three favorite books you read this year?
Yeah, we know that's a mean question for a serious reader. But don't worry: Our colleagues were up for the challenge and managed to whittle down their top picks to just three books each! Hopefully their carefully considered selections will inspire additions to your Want to Read shelf.
You'll notice that our reading habits run the gamut. But careful perusal unveils some office favorites, including lots of love for The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue (in fact, one coworker asked if she could just pick that book three times, but she ultimately chose two more of her faves!), Project Hail Mary, and Interior Chinatown."
