Some of the most exciting and necessary poetry collections published late last year and forthcoming throughout 2021 that will leave you at a loss for words
None of us has been left untouched by the health, social justice and economic crises of the last year. I find that the right book, at the right time can make a world of difference.
Here’s to this year being better than the last; at the very least, may we all find the book(s) that we need. Perhaps yours is included in this month’s list of 43 titles.
Each month, I provide Ms. readers with a list of new books being published by writers from historically excluded groups. These 42 books will give you plenty from which to choose to get you through the last dregs of winter. Enjoy!
Here’s to all of us getting through the rest of winter as gracefully and painlessly as possible. I’m confident that the 47 books on this list will help.
You’ve read all the 2021 most anticipated book lists? Well, now see what other books are out there, you know, for the rest of us.
I pride myself on finding and highlighting some of the books you haven’t seen on other lists because they are from indie publishers, debut authors or historically excluded writers.
Karla Strand is back and bringing you 30 of the most exciting books releasing this month. Some of these are already out, so you’ll have to catch up!
Overall, 2020 can suck it. But we’ve almost made it through and if nothing else, there were some amazing books released this year. I’ve reviewed my Reads for the Rest of Us monthly lists and chosen the 35 best feminist books below as my very favorite reads of the year (in alphabetical order). It was almost impossible to choose but I think there’s something here for everyone.
*And also: We heard you! Thanks to readers who suggested we link out to indie booksellers instead of, ahem, the other guys. Thanks for supporting us and your local booksellers this holiday season!
We’re almost there. We almost made it through 2020! If you’re in need of gift ideas or perhaps some diversions for yourself, these 20 titles will give you a place to start. Fiction and nonfiction, history and futurism, tears of joy or empathy—there’s something here for everyone.
Each month, I provide Ms. readers with a list of new books being published by writers from historically underrepresented groups.
To all reading this, join me as we look toward the future with a renewed sense of hope, unity and power. Enjoy these 20 books, in solidarity.
With all that is going on in the world, I hope some of the 30 titles on this list can provide you some respite from all the important work you are doing right now, or some new information to help in that work, in whatever capacity that may be.
