The Best Books of the Year, According to


I thought it was too early for winter holiday-themed book covers, but decided to get even froggier and drop their best-of-the-year book list. Since last year, it seems like The Book People have started seeing who can release their end-of-the-year book lists first (Barnes & Noble had released theirs October 10th, even).

This year, has beat them all. Their list is comprised of 25 books, ranging from nonfiction essay collections to an illustrated tale of a human-eating alien’s existential crisis.

Here are 13 of’s Best Books of the Year to get you started:

Ripe by Sarah Rose Etter

Chain Gang All-Stars by Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah

The Diaspora Sonnets by Oliver de la Paz

Happiness Falls (Good Morning America Book Club) by Angie Kim

Candelaria by Melissa Lozada-Oliva

Walking Practice by Dolki Min, Victoria Caudle (Translator)

Opinions: A Decade of Arguments, Criticism, and Minding Other People’s Business by Roxane Gay
