Books Are For Giving! (And reading – duh!)
Are you ever stumped as to what to give a certain person for Christmas? This week on Book Girls Don’t Cry we’re making a list of the books that we think would be prefect to give to basically everyone and anyone! Now I’m going to assume that the obvious ones were already read by all (Hunger Games, Harry Potter, etc) so for sake of originality I won’t put em in this list. If someone hasn’t read these yet – Shame on them!!
- Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally: This is one of those books that I think so many would like. I laughed so hard at some parts, I felt happy throughout it all, and even though I’m not a sports person at all Miranda has this magic wand for making you love it in her books. It’s one of those feel-good stories we all need now and again 🙂
- The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson: I Loved this series! It’s incredibly character oriented and so well written. I really want everyone I know to get to know Lisbeth Salander in all her kick-ass glory!
- Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen: One of my all time favorites and the kind of book where even if you don’t think you’ll like it because of the genre – historical – (like I did), or think books about the circus would not be interesting to you (again, like I did), it will prove many wrong! It’s so amazing that I would urge everyone to give it a try!
- This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers: Even though this has zombies, it’s essentially a contemporary novel with very dark, grim tones and a lot to offer. With the mix of genres, though, it would also appeal to a lot of readers – plus it’s Courtney Summers, who can’t love her? 😉
- Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock: This is more than just another werewolf book! Since Twilight, followed by the thousand Were books, everyone’s a bit tired of the genre, but this is the one I would recommend to those who I know are sifting through the endless paranormal releases to look for something that stands out.
- Angelfall by Susan Ee: I hate this genre, yet I loved this book hardcore. This is exactly why I would give it to anyone. Whether you love or hate angel books – do NOT miss out on this one! Trust me!
- Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers: I read this one recently and with so much bullying going around – online and offline – I think this book needs to be read by all. It’s a harsh read but also an important one! (Also, I should have just said “any Summers book” >.<)
- The Host by Stephenie Meyer: This one kinda falls in the “obvious ones” I mentioned at the start but whatevs. I would give this book to anyone, but it would come with 2 warnings: 1) Give it 100 pages to get settled in and 2) you might not like it (seems to be a hit or miss, eh?), but if you do you will love it! Definitely worth giving it a try. Oh and also – don’t watch the movie first (who does that?)!!
