Hi Savvy Readers! How have your first few weeks of 2017 been? Mine have been full of amazing books and fun news. Keep reading to see our favourite bookish news, links, and photos of the past week (or “Bookmark” the post for later)!
1. How to Raise #WomensVoices in 2017: Read These Books!
We are big supporters of feminist stories (that’s why we love womensvoices.ca!) and we’re so happy to see so many people actively seeking out women’s writing. Bustle shared a list of their “15 Most Anticipated Feminist Book Releases of 2017” this week and it’s a fantastic list. Featuring Angie Thomas (The Hate U Give), Durga Chew-Bose (Too Much and Not in the Mood), and longtime favourite Roxane Gay (Hunger) among others, these books should definitely make their way onto your TBR list. Click here to see them all and here to read our post on Women’s Voices!
