Today’s gift guide is near and dear to my heart, mainly because a) I love reading and b) I am basically just sharing all of my favorite books with you. I’ve broken my top recommendations into categories, so that you can help distinguish which book to buy for your book-loving family member or friend. I thought about writing a little synopsis of each book, but figured you’d probably read that on Amazon (where all of the books are linked to). My favorite thing to do is buy ‘excellent’ quality used hardback books, as they’re way, way cheaper and there’s something nice about a book that’s been handed along, right?
Without further ado, my book gift guide recommendations are as follows:
For the detective types: Where’d You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple, Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith, The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith, Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty, and Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty
For the humorists: Bossypants by Tina Fey and 99 Problems but a Baby Ain’t One by Megan Silianoff
For dog lovers: The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
I absolutely love reading books that my friends or family feel passionate about. This year, I’ve asked for the following books for Christmas: Today Will Be Different by Maria Semple, What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty, All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris and Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty. If you have any other recommendations, I’d love to hear them!
