Most Popular New Books Added to the 2017 Reading Challenge

We are officially a quarter of the way through the year, so it’s time to check in on your Goodreads 2017 Reading Challenge.

More than 1.6 million of your fellow readers set personal reading goals for the year, pledging to collectively read more than 76 million books. It got us thinking: What new releases are you adding to your Reading Challenge?

So, we dug into the data to see what books published this year have been added the most to the 2017 Challenge. Leading the new releases: Caraval, Stephanie Garber‘s YA fantasy. While young adult novels make their mark here (or should we say Carve the Mark), apparently you all needed a healthy dose of romance and mystery!

Always remember, the Reading Challenge is meant to be fun and rewarding. There’s no need to fret if you feel like you’re falling behind. You can always change your goal throughout the year (as often as you’d like). And give yourself proper credit. If you’re focused on tackling long, literary classics, account for the time you’ll need and downsize your goal. We also have some suggested short reading, if you’d like to add these to your list.

If you’re feeling inspired, add some of these reads to your Want to Read List!
