When you have an avid reader in your life, gifting is a lot easier than you may think. All you need to do is select the right book – or books! With that in mind, here are eight books to gift this holiday season.
For the Classics Lover: The Complete Grimms’ Fairy Tales
The best part about classics is that they are timeless and always welcomed on a book lover’s shelf. This collection of the Brothers Grimm’s fairy tales is a book that they’ll love to revisit, again and again. Buy now on Amazon.
For the Murder Mystery Fan: The Bill Hodges Trilogy
If you’re looking for more than a one-off novel purchase, invest in the Bill Hodges Trilogy, which includes the classic Stephen King novels Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, and End of Watch. Defined as thrillers and mysteries all in one, these books will have your favorite reader unable to put the books down until they’ve finished. Buy now on Amazon.
For the Hopeless Romantic: The Ex Hex
For romantics out there who like a tinge of Hocus Pocus fanaticism, The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling has all the makings of a great romance novel with some added witchiness. Your recipient will thank you for this fun, lighthearted read. Buy now on Amazon.
For the Out-of-This-World Friend: Rabbits
If your recipient is a fan of Black Mirror, Stranger Things, and Ready Player One, then Rabbits is the next novel they must have on their shelves. This book by Terry Miles is all about an underground game with an amazing prize (though the price to play might just be the participants’ lives). It’s enticing and entertaining all in one. Buy now on Amazon.
For the Horror Fanatic: The Last House on Needless Street
Horror fans are all about haunted houses and strange happenings… but narration from a cat? Well, that’s just enticing enough to dive right in! The Last House on Needless Street by Catriona Ward is one of those novels where giving away any detail takes away from the experience of reading it. Buy now on Amazon.
For the Realist: Crying in H Mart
Grief can be overwhelming, especially around the holidays. And sometimes, the perfect story can turn everything around. Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner is an autobiographical account of grief but also a story about finding oneself. Buy now on Amazon.
For the Young at Heart: The Black Flamingo
Young adult novels are embracing diversity, and we are here for it. The Black Flamingo is a story about a Greek, Jamaican, gay teen living in London who discovers the world of drag. Perfect for every person who wants to expand their horizons. Buy now on Amazon.
For the Comedian: Yearbook
Yearbook by Seth Rogen is a must-read for comedy fans, especially those who grew up watching his films. Interspersed with fun facts from his past flicks, plenty of heart, and, of course, a lot of comedy, this book is one that any fan will adore. Buy now on Amazon.
