15 New Books from 15 Amazing Women2018 was the year for women.
2019 is the year for women writers.
Aspiring lady bosses all over, rejoice! It’s true that in the last year, we saw a tremendous increase in female directed films, a record-breaking number of female candidates for governor, and a slough of new books written by, about, and for women.
Chances are good that if you’re a reader, like me, you’ve already set some sort of reading goal for the year. Whether you prefer to read in the comfort of your own home or alongside a monthly book club crew, there are plenty more female-written releases you can expect in 2019. Here are a few that you’ll want to add to your TBR (to be read) pile immediately, all of which are available this month:
