So let’s get gifting! Here’s what I’d wrap up for you, if you were:
the Contemporary lover:
Fangirl: It’s a safe, wholesome bet. I think this book makes the perfect gift for the ‘dabbler’, the kind of reader that dips in and out but isn’t so sure about what to read or if they even like YA. You can’t go wrong with Rowell, you know?
Anna and the French Kiss: Because Etienne. That’s why. A sweet, addictive kind of read that I think is a must read for any Contemporary fan. It’s a freakin’ staple!
I feel like both of these look pretty too, like they might make people smile just seeing them when tearing open the paper. 🙂
the Fantasy lover:
This book totally blind sided me. It started off a little shaky but then it slammed into me from nowhere and I was hooked! I can’t help but feel excited looking at the cover now. It takes a lot of very traditional fantasy elements, fairy tale elements, I suppose, and makes it fresh. Love it. And I want others to love it too.
It was so hard to choose just two for this category, but this is partly why I have limited myself, because in this category alone I could list dozens! Leigh Bardugo’s writing style is beautiful and memorable. This book is so YES and I’d gift it to anyone, but especially Fantasy fans.
the Romance lover:
Isla and the Happily Ever After: So I had ‘Anna’ in Contemporary; I think there’s a kind of blurred line between Contemporary and Romance. I know it doesn’t always have to be that way, but my favourite Contemporary books usually have a romantic element to them. ANYWAY. I picked Isla because I think the romance develops in a much more achy-breaky way than in Anna. It’s a bit messy. It’s beautiful. It’s fun.
Just One Day: This book has such a compelling concept. I think any Romance fan needs this book, even if it’s to incite some wanderlust! My favourite Forman book so far.
the Mystery/Thriller Lover:
So much love for these. I’d give two copies of each, just so they could pass a copy on to someone else!
What do you reckon? Would you be happy to receive these as a gift? I TAG YOU! xD
