The Best Books Bustle Editors Read This February

Just like the site’s readers, Bustle’s editors have diverse tastes in the books they devour. In February alone, the team dug into recent works of nonfiction, YA debuts, cult classics, long-awaited sequels, and more. It was a mix of both award winners and overlooked gems. The serious and the satirical. Here, we’ve gathered the best books Bustle editors read this month.

For the shortest month of the year our editors read modern classics like Disappearing Earth, The Testaments, and 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World. They’re the kind of books that put you in the mindset of characters with entirely different circumstances, and help challenge you to think beyond your world view.

Some editors also previewed works that will hit shelves later on this year. Books such as Kate Elizabeth Russell’s My Dark Vanessa (Mar. 10), which centers on the relationship between a 15-year-old and her 42-year-old teacher. Told over the course of seventeen years, it’s a wholly modern look at the Lolita tale, and is already becoming one of the most discussed books of 2020.
