With Christmas on the way, I’m sure we’re all busy shopping for our loved ones and maybe even doing some bonus shopping for others. I personally love being able to gift books to others, especially when I know they’ll most likely enjoy the book or have had their eye on it for some time. I saw this on Dora’s blog and thought it would be fun to share my own picks, so here they are!
Flipped – Wendelin Van Draanen
This has been one of my favorites for years and it’s just a feel-good, coming of age read that I think anyone would enjoy. It’s great for pre-teens because they’ll most likely be able to relate to the character’s feelings toward another.
I Work at a Public Library – Gina Sheridan
Perfect for a librarian or library lover in your life. This is instances that have really happened in a library setting. The fact that the author thought to write all these down inspires me to do the same, because sometimes the weirdest things do happen at the library!
Standing By – Tabitha G. Kelly
This was a cute young-adult novel to read that just felt very relatable. The characters were fun and had some good growth in the book. I know I’d personally like to see more of them in a continuation or spin-off.
the princess saves herself in this one – Amanda Lovelace
For any poetry lovers that I know, this was a favorite of mine when I went on a poetry kick late last year/early this year. Though I haven’t read all of her collections yet, I really am a fan of her work.
Adulthood is a Myth – Sarah Anderson
Pretty much all of us can relate to these comics done by Anderson. They are perfect to glance through on a day when you’re feeling down, and she’s got two other books out that can accompany this one!
So there are my five books that I’d gift to my friends, family, fellow readers. What are some of your picks to give as a gift?
