I hope 2016 brought you many wonderful reading experiences and that you’re already gearing up for some great reading in 2017!

I read some really great books in 2016 and I’m already looking forward to another year of discovering new stories, characters, and authors.  Here are just a few of the books on my list for 2017:


Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts 1 and 2
by JK Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne

2016 felt like the resurgence of Harry! I got this one for Christmas and I’m looking forward to reading it since it doesn’t look like I’ll make it to London to see the stage production!


Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
by Ransom Riggs

I’m a little late to the Miss Peregrine’s party. I should have read this book way before now!  It is on my bookshelf just waiting for me.


Ruthless: Scientology, My Son David Miscavige, and Me
by Ron Miscavige

I read Troublemaker and Beyond Belief in 2016, both autobiographies about escaping the clutches of Scientology. I find the topic fascinating and look forward to reading more.

Where the Dead Lie
by C. S. Harris

I love the Sebastian St. Cyr mystery series and the next installment comes out in April 2017. What will Sebastian and Hero get into next? I’m sure this book will be devoured quickly!

Big Little Lies
by Liane Moriarty

I love this author and have been making my way through her books. Big Little Lies has gotten a lot of recommendations from friends so I’m excited to get to it.

Petty: The Biography
by Warren Zanes

Tom Petty is one of my favorite musicians and I am really interested in reading this biography. I just hope I don’t learn anything that taints how I feel about Tom!


These are just a few of my picks for 2017.  What do you want to read in the coming year?  Share your picks in the comments and let’s share some ideas!

Happy New Year of Reading!
