7 Books We’re Looking Forward to in 2017

Which all just *happen* to be written by women.

2017 Books

One of the perks of my job as Read it Forward’s editor is getting to read books months before they are published. So, I can tell you with full certainty that there’s lots of literary goodness to look forward to in 2017. These seven books—all publishing in the first half of 2017—are not only wonderful examples of contemporary literature, historical fiction and essays, but they all happen to be written by smart and savvy women.
