Top 33 New Books You Need in September 2020

I’ve always loved September: Summer fades into fall and students head back to school. One of my favorite parts of preparing for each school year (and in college, each quarter) was getting the books I’d need for my classes. Yes, I was that nerd. And yes, I still am that nerd, even though it’s been seven years since I was in a classroom.

This year, I have my eyes on these 33 new books hitting shelves in September 2020. From debut novels to new releases from favorite authors, from literary dramas to thrillers to nonfiction, this list includes a wide variety of authors, characters, and genres. Hopefully something here will pique your interest!
