Holiday Book Fairy

Angie of Angieville recently posted about her Holiday Reading & Giving and asked what books we're giving to others this holiday season. I love this idea and thought instead of just posting in her comments I would share what books I've bought for people. This year I've bought less books than I have in the past. I ALWAYS try to give at least one book to anyone I buy gifts for. Luckily, I have lots of friends and family who are voracious readers and are ecstatic to receive books as gifts.

I usually buy books for my mom that I haven't read yet but have been getting a lot of buzz in the blog-o-sphere. That way I can borrow them when she's finished! Thank you all for your fabulous book pimping skill because of all the books I've bought her, that I haven't read, she's loved! So thank you! I haven't read either of these but they sound excellent and I'm sure my mom will enjoy them:

For my dad I thought he would enjoy this book, which I also have not read but intend to borrow when he's finished!

I told one of friends about the Downside series because I thought it was something she would enjoy but she hadn't bought the first book yet so I did it for her. Also thought she would enjoy the Beautiful Creatures series as well!

My other friend loves J.R. Ward but hadn't picked up the second book in her Fallen Angels series so I got that for her.
So, as Angie asked, what books are you giving this year?


  1. I want to give my SIL Simply Irresistible by Jill Shalvis. It's a wonderful Contemporary Romance that I think she would enjoy.

  2. Bells, I've been seeing such good reviews of that one! I really liked her Wilder brothers series I can't wait to read this one too! That would make a great gift!

  3. You guys are so nice. All I do is think about the books I want to read myself. Soooo... I'm giving my 15 year old Mockingjay so I can read it. LOL! I'm also giving my 11 year old this Unofficial Harry Potter cookbook... you guessed it! So I can make pumpkin juice and other wizardly concoctions. You think there might be a recipe for polyjuice potion in there? ;)

  4. LOL, your family is lucky :) and you're lucky they're readers, so you can give them books. My parents do read, but mostly in vietnamese, so yeah...

    I hoe your mom enjoys Spider's Bite!! I really liked it :) Oh and you're dad is getting The Maze Runner? Saw it the other day at the bookstore, sounds very interesting!
