I think this is one of my favorite posts of the year. Why? Well, I LOVE to read. It has always been my favorite pass time. Getting lost in a good book is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the every day. After a lot of perusing the new books releasing this year, I have pulled out the ones I am most looking forward to reading! Also, a few old titles to catch up on if you haven’t read them yet.
I’ll be honest, when I was looking at last year’s post: 16 Books to Read in 2016, I realized I didn’t even read half of the titles I had planned on. Of course, we also weren’t exactly planning on having another baby this past year, either. Life sure is funny that way. This year, maybe I will have more time to read and travel. I can normally finish a book when we are road tripping some place and I am planning to travel a good bit more with our family this year.

Definitely saving this list when I’m done reading my leftovers from 2016 (so guilty of not reading enough last year!).

I have been looking for recommendations on what to read and you just provided me with a lot! I’ve been wanting to grab Lauren Graham’s book next I’ve heard good things about it!
Missy Burson says
I just read “Reshaping it all” by Candace Cameron Bure, It’s a great book about getting healthy and losing weight – and getting the strength to do it though Christ. I love Fixer Upper so I will look into getting their book!
Debra Hawkins says
Man, what a great list – It looks like I need to get started!! Can’t wait
Terri Steffes says
Talking as Fast as I Can sounds good to me! I just read books as they come to me. I have already finished four this year. Two by Jody Piccoult that were fantastic!
I’m pinning this to my reading board so I can get back when I’m done with my current book; I’m always looking for something new to read.
Jennifer Anderson Marx says
Wow, I haven’t heard of ANY of these books. So many new books I haven’t read! Thanks for the list of ideas!
Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh says
I haven’t heard of any of these, except the Chip and Joanna book; which I haven’t gotten the chance to read yet. My reads right now consist of those that my daughter will be reading next year for school…we homeschool, so I preread everything to make up questions, pull vocab from, as well as create quizes. I really would love to read a grown up book soon! Ha!
Vera Sweeney says
I had not heard of some of these books!! What a great goal for books to read, some of these sound like really good reads too. V

Katriza Luna says
I’ve never heard of any of these books! I actually haven’t come up with my reading list this year yet, thanks for reminding me to get on that soon! It’s one of my New Year’s Resolution to up the number of books I read this year! I love to read and it always calms me and allows me to unwind from the craziness of my life! Thanks for these great tips on book titles to check out! I will definitely need to add a few of these to my list this year!
Rachel @ Kitchen Cents says
I’m not a big novel reader but this list looks great. Most of these books I’ve never even heard of.
Becca Wilson says
I am heading over to Goodreads right now to add these to my list. So many great suggestions!
I am always looking for new books to read that are not curriculum. I save up and gobble up books during break. Last spring break I read 5 books – literally, I stayed up just to read because I never have an opportunity during the school year
Karen Yannacio Morse says
I always get excited learning of book recommendations. Yet, I never have time (or that I make time for) in my days to read. I want to be more mindful of reading more this year!
I want to start reading again. I keep saying I am going to get a kindle because a lot of the books I want aren’t available at the library.
Kit Stanwood says
Hehe the more book blogs I read and comment on the more motivation I have to finish up the divergent series and also 7 habits of highly successful people hah thanks!!
Marisa Hernandez says
Ohh nice! I have not head of any of these ,so this is perfect. I’m definitely reading more this year!
Reesa Lewandowski says
I am leaving on a trip tomorrow and was looking for a new book to read. Thanks for the suggestions.
I’m currently reading Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys and I love it but I hope to read 18 books this year so I will pin this for later, because I’m going to need good book suggestions.
Keren Charles says
