New releases to help with your 2017 Goodreads Challenge

Are you participating in a Reading Challenge on Goodreads this year? I decided to aim high this year, and set my goal to read 100 books. Since I’ve only finished 17 so far, I’ve got some work to do! Perhaps you’d like some extra motivation, or are just curious what other people are reading during their challenge.

This post from Goodreads shares some of the most popular new releases from this year that people are reading during their challenge. Here are a few from the list:

The Girl Before by J.P. Delaney
“In the tradition of The Girl on the Train, The Silent Wife, and Gone Girl comes an enthralling psychological thriller that spins one woman’s seemingly good fortune, and another woman’s mysterious fate, through a kaleidoscope of duplicity, death, and deception.”


Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders
“On February 22, 1862, two days after his death, Willie Lincoln was laid to rest in a marble crypt in a Georgetown cemetery. That very night, shattered by grief, Abraham Lincoln arrives at the cemetery under cover of darkness and visits the crypt, alone, to spend time with his son’s body.”


My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella
“Katie Brenner has the perfect life: a flat in London, a glamorous job, and a super-cool Instagram feed.
Ok, so the real truth is that she rents a tiny room with no space for a wardrobe, has a hideous commute to a lowly admin job, and the life she shares on Instagram isn’t really hers.
But one day her dreams are bound to come true, aren’t they?”

The article also links to their short reading suggestions, which is helpful if you’re like me and need to increase your numbers of finished books 🙂
