What a year. At least the books were good.
Our cover author this year is Sujatha Gidla, whose amazing family memoir, Ants Among Elephants, addresses a lot of topics—class, immigration, opportunity, poverty, inequality—that have been lighting up your news feeds. She’s joined in our top 10 by other authors who offer smart takes—on both the fiction and nonfiction sides—on these strange days, how we got here, and what’s around the corner. But don’t stop there. Our reviews editors have selected the year’s 100 best books for adults, and 50 fantastic titles for children and teens. Enjoy.

New books from Roxane Gay!
It was announced on Friday that Adams Media, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, is making Jane Gloriana Villanueva’s (Gina Rodriguez) dreams — and the dreams of Jane the Virgin fans — a reality by publishing the title character’s debut novel, Snow Falling. While fictitious Jane already landed the book deal, fans will soon get to hold and devour an actual physical copy of her novel.
