Tell Me What to Read in 2017

2016 is almost over! In December I always start thinking about what I want to accomplish in the next year. One thing is a constant on my yearly accomplishment list: I want to read more books.

It’s not hard to find books to read. It’s not even all that hard to find good books to read. In fact, there are almost too many great books out there for me to know where to begin. Finding new books to read is a wonderful, overwhelming experience.

You can help make it a little easier! Leave some great book recommendations in the comments. I can’t promise I will read them all in 2017, but I’ll at least give them a look. Old, new, indie, and traditionally published I want to hear about them all!

  1. Feed by Mira Grant (It’s the first to a series)
    Fireman by Joe Hill (thick, but a standalone)
    Impulse by Ellen Hopkins (looks thick, but the story is in verse, so it reads very quickly)
    Cell by Stephen King (I’m just finishing this one and it’s really good).

    I look forward to seeing what you read this coming year! Anything YOU recommend?

    • I’m still loving the Discworld books. The books about the witches are always extra amazing, in my opinion.

      Also, because I’ve been thinking about Alice in Wonderland lately I’ll recommend The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor because it is a fun re-imagining of that story.

  2. I read a lot of shortstorie anthologies. I would like to know what your thoughts are on one of my shortstories, at some point. Trying to improve on my character development. Also read a lot of Stephen King.

  3. This one’s an oldie by now but it was my absolute favourite read this year: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. It just had this sort of lovely writing style to it that I don’t often see in more modern books, and I really loved it a lot :3 & I will also suggest Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. I haven’t actually read the book yet but the BBC Radio play adaptation of the story was absolutely phenomenal, so I highly recommend both 🙂

  4. I second Feed by Mira Grant! And if you like zombie stories I also recommend World War Z. The book, not the movie.

    Right now I’m reading The Martian, which is hilarious and very good. Would recommend.

    Have you read Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman? That was my gateway book to the Discworld series.
