I've always been the type of reader that has a hard time starting. I'm not the type of reader who can just read anything. And if a book doesn't instantly grab me right from the beginning I put it down. Time is precious to me and I don't want to spend my time reading a book that is just meh. So I don't read as often as I'd like, because in the past I've spent a lot of time starting books and putting them down.
But when I find a book that grabs me, I'm hooked and can't put it down.
The best way to find a really good book is to get book recommendations.
Below is a list of recommendations I got from friends, blogs, and websites. Because this is a summer reading list I decided to only include recommended books from 2017.
What books published in 2017 do you recommend reading?
