Open up any Halo book and on the first page you'll see a list of every book in order of release. That's the order you should read them in. The first four are kind of a quadrilogy and the rest jump around in different time periods.

I liked New Blood too, but some of the things that happened I wasn't sure how I felt about.

The release order is as follows (and it's recommended to read them in release order):

Halo: Fall of Reach
 Halo: The Flood
 Halo: First Strike
 Halo: Ghosts of Onyx
 Halo: Contact Harvest
 Halo: Cole Protocol
 Halo: Evolutions (short-story anthology)
 Halo: Cryptum (Book 1 of the Forerunner Saga)
 Halo: Glasslands (Book 1 of the Kilo-5 trilogy)
 Halo: Primordium (Book 2 of the Forerunner Saga)
 Halo: The Thursday War (Book 2 of the Kilo-5 trilogy)
 Halo: Silentium (Book 2 of the Forerunner Saga)
 Halo: Mortal Dictata (Book 3 of the Kilo-5 trilogy)
 Halo: Broken Circle
 Halo: New Blood
 Halo: Hunters in the Dark
 Halo: Saint's Testimony
 Halo: Last Light
 Halo: Shadow of intent
 Halo: Fractures (short-story anthology)
 Halo: Smoke and Shadow
 Halo: Envoy
Fall of Reach is my favorite book, followed closely by Hunters in the Dark.
 Halo: Contact Harvest is the most underrated

I Personally Love the Fall of Reach and the Newly released Envoy.
Is Envoy a good starting point? I've only played the games and want to know more about the expanded universe. I read the back of Envoy at BN and it seems like a stand alone title (I don't really want to read one of the Halo books if it feels like I need a quicklink to Halopedia right next to me).
Yes Envoy is a thriling book, A Sequel to the Cole Protocol.
Ghosts of Onyx and Sillentium
Ghosts of Onyx
Don't forget to read The Legacy of Onyx and Halo Evolutions
For me its Halo New Blood
Broken Circle for sure. But Ghosts of Onyx and The Flood are also up there for me.

Tbh I have a soft spot for the Kilo 5 Trilogy too because of Jul ‘Mdama.
Honestly, I really enjoyed the Flood.
