Every December, the New York Times releases their annual "Notable Books" list, which celebrates the year's greatest literary achievements. Studded with big names and remarkable first-time authors, it represents the cream-of-the-crop in literary talent, and serves as a touchstone for what—or whom—belongs in everyone's TBR piles.
