After hours of watching stunning before-and-afters, gathering all the best decorating tips and looking around our house for the next spot to revamp, all we want to do is curl up with a good book — featuring the exact people we’ve spent all day with on our screens, of course.

Our favorite HGTV stars share their life stories, their best tips for designing, renovating and real estate, and a few even have adorably illustrated children’s books for our little ones.


Fixer to Fabulous co-host Jenny Marrs is sharing her design-savvy knowledge with us. House + Love = Home is full of beautifully curated home designs by Jenny and her husband, Dave Marrs, as well as transformational tips. "I don’t believe there is a one-size-fits-all guide that accounts for personal style and preference," Jenny wrote in an Instagram post. "Instead, I wanted to write a book to encourage you to be creative with your home." Find it in stores everywhere on November 14, or preorder it now.


The author of not one, but two books (see below for the one she co-penned with her husband Ben Napier), Home Town host Erin Napier graces us with yet another taste of her heartwarming writing. "I’ve become bored of the photos of perfectly styled and staged interiors you see so much of in the online world and wanted to write a book celebrating the imperfection of our houses," she wrote on Instagram. Heirloom Rooms presents a series of essays about the Napier home, “wherein every room is its own chapter about a particular time in our life together," says Erin. She also invited friends and designers to contribute by self-shooting their own unstaged and lived-in rooms and adding commentary. Heirloom Rooms will be available in stores everywhere on October 3, 2023 — but you can preorder it now.


Another Napier classic. This memoir from Erin and Ben Napier is a behind-the-scenes look at the couple’s lives together and how they rebuilt the Main Street of their small town in Mississippi. With family photos, Erin’s hand-painted sketches and never-before-heard stories, the book is a lovely telling of their journey to Home Town stars. Also, don’t miss Erin’s beautiful children’s book, The Lantern House, about the seasons of life in a home.


Ever wish you could bring Jasmine Roth home with you? Now you can. Her book guides you on how to create a cohesive home style by outlining the four common design types and their style subsets, as well as helpful worksheets and questions. No matter your house size or budget, the Help! I Wrecked My House host's book will bring your space to life.


From buying and selling to renovating a house, this book by Jonathan and Drew Scott of Property Brothers: Forever Home ensures its readers know everything the brothers know. Handy calendars and cheat sheets direct you on must-do repairs, how to find the best deals, clever negotiating tactics and ideas for creating your perfect home. They also have two children’s books, Builder Brothers Big Plans and Builder Brothers Better Together, for the younger fans in your home.


Mina Starsiak of Good Bones made this book for her littlest fans and their grown-ups. With playful illustrations, the book is all about how there are countless ways to be a family and no two families look alike. Inspired by her own life story, Mina wants to encourage a world of acceptance.


Dive into The Nate and Jeremiah Home Project co-host Nate Berkus world in The Things That Matter. Not only does he talk about the people who've inspired him, his refined sense of style and his intriguing life story, but he also showcases 13 stunning homes, including his own. Nate believes homes tell our stories, and he's ready to help your home do just that.


Egypt Sherrod of Married to Real Estate knows a thing or two about the housing market, and in her book, she shares her know-how with you. Whether you’re a first- or 12th-time buyer, Egypt has practical and accessible advice for making your home buying experience simple and organized.


Christina Hall of Christina on the Coast shares her own health struggles with an autoimmune disease and infertility to help others discover their way to a healthier lifestyle. After teaming up with nutritionist Cara Clark, she was able to regain her health and heal her body and mind — all of which they outline in an accessible guide. In addition to practical advice, they also share beautiful photos and easy-to-follow recipes for busy weeknights.


Siblings Leanne and Steve Ford, co-hosts of Restored by the Fords, have quite a story to share on how they built a life of creativity. In their book, Work in Progress, they share their journey from living in suburban Pittsburgh to teaming up on eclectic design projects to starring in their own HGTV show.


The super-fun and mom-of-three Jenn Todryk of No Demo Reno continues to fill our lives with laughter. Her book on the “50 perfect pairings to match your child’s perfectly rotten behavior” will get you through the daily hurdles, ahem, we mean, joys of parenting. She even includes a clever way to open a bottle of wine when you can’t find the corkscrew. (Probably because your child used it in the fort currently taking over your living room.)
