Read It Forward is turning 10! Back in 2008, we set out to create a site where you could win a free book, but over the past 10 years, we’ve grown into a place where a community of readers can come to find their next great read, discover awesome books and authors through our editorial content, and discuss beloved books with one another in our robust Facebook group—and we still haven’t stopped giving away free books!

We couldn’t have made it to this milestone birthday without you, dear reader, so as we celebrate all month long, please know how grateful we are for your bookish passion and enthusiasm. Like you, the Read It Forward staff is made up of some seriously voracious readers. We all chimed in to tell you about the books we’ve adored recently, in the hopes you might feel the same.
