The Books Instagram Recommends

Anyone else ready to curl up by the fireplace with a good book, hot cocoa close at hand? ‘Tis the season to give the gift of reading, the only problem: finding the perfect pick for everyone on your list. We’re happy to report that there is a whole community of book lovers on Instagram—from those who focus purely on good reads to those slipping their favorite spines into lifestyle feeds—constantly at the ready to read, review and champion their favorite new editions.

While we’d love the luxury of browsing through shelf after shelf of tomes, instead we’ve combed through the bibliophile recesses of Instagram to round up some of our favorite top picks from 2017. Whether you’re looking to gift the voracious reader in your life with novels, nonfiction or something totally unexpected, we’ve got you covered—cover to cover—no matter the genre.
