2018 Books Recommendations Based on Your Past Faves

I love reading in a big way. Aside from not being able to survive 24 hours without diving into a book, I also spend way too much time in bookstores and trolling the book section on Amazon. The list of books on my wishlist is a mile long...or probably more, at this point. Whenever I'm chatting with someone about my passion for reading, however, one of the biggest questions I get is how on earth I decide which books to read. I understand the struggle-- despite rave (or not-so-rave) reviews, peer recs, and more, it can be hard to decode which books you'll enjoy. The advice I always give to people is to choose books based on tomes they've liked in the past, a method that I myself use and has brought me good results in the past.  That's why I've compiled a list below of quick 2018 new releases to put on your list based on popular titles from the past couple years. From poetry to historical fiction, there's something for everyone in here!
