Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been an avid reader. It’s one of the major reasons I decided to major in English at college (reading was my kind of homework) and one reasons I ran a book review blog for a long time. Reading has always given me a way to escape from the real life stress and jump into another world that I can watch from a distance without having to be truly involved.
I used to be a huge fan of buying actual books but once I started traveling, I realized carrying a book or five in my bag just wasn’t practical, so I’m now an electronic reader all the way.
Updated book List
This month I’m in charge of picking out the book for our monthly neighborhood book club. I’ll admit I’ve been kind of living under a rock since March so books haven’t been a priority.
I asked my trusty friends on Facebook and the responses had me wanting to grab my Kindle and start reading right away!
Since I see people regularly ask what book they should read next, I thought it might be helpful to put together a book list for people who need a new book to check out!
Tip: I am planning to keep this post updated with the books on my books to read list! As I hear about new books, I’ll update this post. And as I read them, I’ll take them off and add my review to my GoodReads account so you can check it out there.
Bookmark this post and come back to it if you ever need new books to read. It’ll be constantly updated with more books to read!
I tried to include a little bit of everything (other than non-fiction) since my reading tastes are eclectic, but if none of these books fit your tastes, you should check out some of the best Kindle Unlimited books too!
I’ve divided it by genre but don’t discount something if you don’t think you like it. Some of my favorite books ended up being these books like Divergent!
These are the books designed to keep you turning pages and hyped with anticipation. They’re called thrillers for a reason – they’ll thrill you!
Historical Fiction Books
These books are all take place during historical events. Some are based on true stories, others take liberties with the history of the times. But they all share a sense of history.
General Fiction Books
These books are the ones that don’t necessarily have a genre – they’re just books that come highly recommended and make you think.
But when his choices produce devastating consequences, he sets out to right wrongs, traveling to Central America where he will meet those who have paid for his actions, including a woman and her young daughter. Will their fated encounter present Charlie with a way to seek the redemption he thought was impossible — and free his heart to love one woman as he never knew he could?
These two families quickly find themselves fighting over everything starting with an oak tree and a blossoming romance between the teens. Can they figure out a way to be good neighbors?
But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life–until the unthinkable happens.
While these books would be good to read by the pool or beach, they’re also great for reading at home or during the day. Love stories, stories that make you think, and books that might also fit on this romantic comedy books list!
Young Adult Books
Young adult books sometimes hit the hardest as the messages tend to be plain and straight to the point. From young adult dystopian books to books about teens trying to find their way in life, these books to read are really ones for any age.
