Looking for a great book to gift this Christmas? Here are some of my suggestions! This is all my opinion and not sponsored, although if you do buy something from Amazon I will get a small percent commission. But really … I just love books and love talking about them! If you ever want a personal recommendation, PLEASE e-mail me!
Invitation to a Journey by Robert Mulholland. While I haven’t read this, it’s often quoted in our Serendipity House products and it’s up there on my list of books to read! He has great wisdom on your spiritual journey.
If your reading friend is also a foodie, like me, I would HIGHLY recommend the Ruth Reichl memoirs. Reichl was the editor of Gourmet magazine (before it was sadly shut down this year!) and her writing is phenomenal and recipes enchanting. In order, they are Tender at the Bone, Comfort Me with Apples, Garlic and Sapphires, and Not Becoming My Mother.
My dad is a Civil War buff, and I’ve had Confederates in the Attic on my list of books to get him for a while now. It has great review on Amazon and I’m pretty sure he would love it. I’ve already grabbed his present for this year from Paperbackswap, though…a pristine copy of a hardback book he’ll love!
My husband doesn’t read a ton, but he raced through the Song of Albion Trilogy by Stephen Lawhead. The author writes fantasy with a Christian slant, I believe. If Mr. V read them, though, I can guarantee that most sci fi/fantasy fans will like them! The books are The Paradise War, The Silver Hand, and The Endless Knot.
I used to make Listmania lists on Amazon occasionally, and my favorite is What English Majors Read After College. There you’ll find some of my favorite gems from the past five years of reading outside of the classroom!
Some books Libbie likes are Toes, Ears & Nose (recommended to us by Alli-n-Son); One Shining Star, a great Christmas book for little ones; My Mommy and Me, with enchanting illustrations; and everything Lauren Child’s ever done … oh wait, that’s just me (I’m sure she’ll grow to love them as well)!
Want to win a copy of I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato by Lauren Child? (A book I could have written myself! Ha!) Leave me a comment with a book you’d love to get for Christmas this year.
