It’s time to get cozy with a good book.

At home, at work, even on the tennis court—women are redefining what it means to be a modern female in every arena. Which is why we’re looking forward to hearing how some game-changing women are doing it—in their own words.

This fall you’ll find no shortage of memoirs by women. From famous athletes to the daughters of presidents, their stories might seem unattainable, but each promises insight into the very human experiences we all share. 

Here's a preview of five new releases that are highly anticipated in the literary community. Consider them for whatever cozy, fall reading day you have planned, and let us know what you think!

With a doping scandal rocking her world in 2016, her book details career high points as well as a personal account of her suspension. It promises to be much more than just tennis!

Fans of Faris’ podcast, Anna Faris Is Unqualified, will likely not be disappointed by her first book release. If you’re familiar with Faris, you know her humor is sometimes fully loaded, and surely her book will carry that trademark candor. Slated to be full of entertaining stories of love and living in show business, the actress’s memoir will have the same sense of humor present in all her quirky and over-the-top characters. And while her recent split from Chris Pratt, her husband of eight years, felt sudden, the book will still explore the happier times of their marriage and will even include a forward from Pratt.

Sisters: Stories from Our Wild and Wonderful Life by Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush

Release date: October 24

Grand Central Publishing

Grand Central Publishing

Hager and Bush were once first daughters who grew up in the public eye, but the twins have successfully made their own distinct names outside of politics, with Hager working as a correspondent for Today and Bush serving as the CEO and co-founder of Global Health Corps. The memoir is slated to focus on their experiences in the White House, diving deep into personal stories of their father and grandfather, both former presidents, and a look into those infamous college years.
