We all know how we feel about 2018. It was a roller coaster of extreme highs and lows, and there were moments of delight and heartache along the way. But if there are a few things this year has taught us, they're resilience, compassion, and the power of community.

Burnout, exhaustion, stress, and fatigue are a few things we could all do without this year.

We're kicking off the New Year with hope and optimism, and we're not alone. We asked some of the most interesting women we know to share some of the books they're reading in January to evoke that enthusiasm, heart, and promise for the year ahead. Read on to discover the 32 books they think we should read now to ensure we start off 2019 on the right foot.
