Top 52 Children’s Chapter Books to Read in 2018

chapter books to read in 2018In my house, 2018 will be the year of reading! But really, who am I kidding? In my house, every year is the year of reading!

As I start to think about New Year’s Resolutions, I can’t help but think about ways to spend even more quality time with my children. Of course, as an author and an avid reader, my mind immediately goes to books! So this coming year, I hope to spend even more time reading aloud with my daughter (who, luckily, also loves to read!)

With that in mind, I’ve compiled a list of 52 children’s chapter books to read in 2018. The list below is a fun grouping of old of old and new, of classics and future classics. Parents will recognize many books from their own childhoods mixed with many brand new books released at the end of 2017 or slated to be released at the beginning of 2018.

As I set my goal, I hope that I will be able to read at least one children’s chapter book per week with my daughter. I hope that by reading 52 books this year with her, one per week, that I will help foster her love of reading, her love of learning, and her imagination. Noble goals, right?

If, after checking out this list, you feel like you need even more suggestions, head over to my recommends page on Amazon. Find it here.
