31 New Books By or About Women

From Rose McGowan's debut to new Jojo Moyes, it's shaping up to be a great year for female authors and women-centric stories.

Since day one, women have been leading the way in 2018. Calling for more women to be considered for Grammys this past Sunday, to the second Women’s March a week ago and representing the #MeToo movement at the Golden Globes, women have made it clear that this is the year of the woman, that we will be heard and we are not backing down.

In preparing the list of new books out this week, we found that an abundance of books we are looking forward to reading are penned by women or are about women (as is the case with J. Randy Taraboreilli’s book on Jacqueline Kennedy, the only book on our list written by a man). Here are 31 powerful new books by or about strong women:
