The Very Best Books to Give As Gifts Part 1

0001-100415324

Yep. It is time for me to stop wailing and saying “I’M NOT READY FOR CHRISTMAS I WASN’T READY FOR HALLOWEEN/THANKSGIVING/THE END OF SUMMER BREAK”. It is past Thanksgiving. Lights are up, stores are going crazy, and while our house is Christmas tree free, I don’t think it will be for much longer.

And we have all had that moment where we KNOW someone really likes to read but we just have no idea what to get them. THERE ARE SO MANY, AND THEY’RE ALL BEAUTIFUL. And so I created this helpful list.

Pretty much all the books on this list are YA. There are a few that are not, but if they are not YA, they are still completely readable and enjoyable by teenagers. Both boys and girls will enjoy all the books on this list; they are all well written, interesting stories and just because the main character is the opposite gender doesn’t mean that the story is for a boy or a girl.

I’m not going to describe what the books are about (it would take too long), but I’ll gave the link to their Goodreads page in the title.
