Today’s Top is Top 10 Books To Give As Gifts and to who! So, I thought I would get specific with different people from my day to day and from blogging as well!
1. Lola And The Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
If my sister didn’t want TOMS shoes or a purse and I had free reign on what to get her, I would get her Lola And The Boy Next Door because she loved Anna & The French Kiss when I loaned her my copy.
2. The Litigators by John Grisham
For my boyfriend, Tony! Because he loves John Grisham’s books and has not read this one yet.
3. The Name Of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
Tony has a family member who loves fantasy novels, thus, I would get her The Name Of The Wind because it is EXCELLENT.
4. The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by NK Jemisin
I have a friend, Randy, who is awesome and a fan of fantasy novels as well. The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms is different from the usual fantasy fare, so I think he would enjoy it!
5. Will Grayson, Will Grayson by David Levithan & John Green
My friend Allison L. deserves to meet Tiny Cooper, because she is awesome and often lets me drag her to book signings. Some of you may know her on twitter as @lettertoafriend. She rocks. Thus a rockin book for a rockin friend.
6. Bet Me by Jennifer Cruise
If I had to gift this book to a friend, I would gift it to both Anna and Jen who are both awesome and who both mentioned at one time or another in passing wanting to try romance. I have a feeling this is right UP their alley as it reads like a YA contemp but with two tasteful sex scenes. Also, SLOW BURN.
7. The Aviary by Kathleen O’Dell
If Allison at The Allure Of Books hadn’t already purchased The Aviary and I was sending these books to people for real, I would totally get her The Aviary. This is a book you give to people you care very much about. It’s a book to treasure, I believe.
8. Methland: The Death And Life Of An American Small Town by Nick Reding
Methland is a nonfiction book and is REALLY good, so I would give it to Jamie at the Perpetual Page Turner because she likes eclectic books and I think it’s an interesting read if you are feeling burned out on YA. And also I couldn’t think of any travel memoirs.
9. The Girl Of Fire And Thorns by Rae Carson
The Girl Of Fire And Thorns is a book that I would give to Carla who I am surprised hasn’t reviewed it at least when I googled it on her blog. Anyways, I would give it to Carla because it’s fantasy and BALLER and a slow burn but there are big surprises.
10. Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson is a book that I think Lisa at Lisa Is Busy Nerding would enjoy. Seriously, I would like for Lisa to meet Vin and Kelsier and Elend and get to know the BAMFness of Allomancy!
Disclaimer: I am not ACTUALLY buying anyone these books for Christmas as I am spending all my money on an expensive gift for the boyfriend.
