While it had its ups and downs, 2019 was a great year for books written by women, trans and gender nonconforming writers and other historically marginalized writers. This year is shaping up to be even better—as evidenced by the 86 books in this very 2020 preview!
I receive a lot of new and forthcoming books each month to be considered for review or inclusion on these lists, but it is damn near impossible for me to know about every book publishing every month—although I do try!—and I am bound to miss some. To make up for it, I’m going to share some of those with you now!
This month’s list includes amazing reads to curl up with on a snowy night or to gift to friends and family for the holidays.
I’ve included 18 books on this month’s list. They are surprising, uncompromising, candid, groundbreaking and, in some cases, infuriating. I hope they inspire your resistance, activity, zeal and bravery—because there is a lot of work to do.
As I was choosing the 23 books for this month’s list, one major theme emerged: triumph. I didn’t intend to pick books that centered this theme so strongly, it just happened. But I am so glad it did because I need this fierce inspiration lately. I hope you find some in these like I did.
There are so many amazing books coming out this month. It’s bananas! I’ve managed to narrow this list down to 25 titles—which will you read?
