It’s official: you’ve made it to the end of 2020, and the best way to reward yourself is to splurge on the best new books of December. The last crop of must-read books of 2020 are every bit as enticing as the ones that came before. This month brings nonfiction titles about everything from antiracism to the bond between a woman and her dog and a guide to chasing your dreams. Meanwhile, on the fiction side of things, there’s a moving story about a man caught between two worlds, a YA novel about a girl embracing her royal roots, and a spooky thriller that focuses on a mother who is grappling with her son’s chilling imaginary friend.
Whether you want to end 2020 reading an eerily prescient dystopian novel or a YA romp about a college Quidditch team, this month’s list of must-read books has you covered. And as always, if you need even more titles to add to your TBR, don’t forget to check out our picks from last month, too.
