It’s week 2 of December does #SixforSunday. Thank you all so much for joining in last week, it was so lush to see you all joining in!
This week’s prompt sees us taking on something that I LOVE doing:
Books to give as gifts
I LOVE BUYING BOOKS AS PRESENTS OK? I’m going to choose 6 people from my life and gift them a book (which they might actually be getting or not, who knows) and tell you WHY I’m gifting them that!
- My goddaughters – Pages and Co (1 and 2) by Anna James
My goddaughters are 8, nearly 9 now, and they have been AVID readers since they were proper little. I’m the auntie that brings them books. I think it’s about time they were introduced to the wonderful world of Tilly and her book wandering adventures. I love these books and I think they will too!
- My cousin, Kate – A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
Kate is a massive reader and a MASSIVE Disney fan. Me and her are quite alike in many ways and I really enjoyed this Beauty and the Beast retelling, so I think she would enjoy it too!
- My mam – Scythe by Neal Schusterman
My mam loves stealing books from my shelves. She’s a big fan of YA books ever since she started stealing my books. We all know I LOVE a bit of Scythe and I think it would be right down my mam’s alley.
- My cousin’s husband, Graeme – Frostheart by Jamie Littler
Graeme is a big reader and I’ve got him into reading kids books (because they’re the best). I devoured Frostheart when I read it and I think Graeme would really enjoy it too. Who doesn’t wanna read an icy adventure?!
- My friend, Sally – The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven
Sally is one of the people I work with who I just adore. She’s recently started reading YA books with her daughter. I think she’d LOVE TEOOO because who doesn’t?!
- Anyone who doubts how good kids books are – Why You Should Read Children’s Books, Even Though You Are So Old and Wise by Katherine Rundell.
Kids books are BRILLIANT and I challenge ANYONE to a duel who argues otherwise.
That was a fun prompt for #SixforSunday! You can bet that if I’m buying you a present for Christmas that there’ll be a book in there/book related thing in there somewhere!
What are you buying for others?
Which of my gifted books are you most interested in?
What would you buy for me?
See you next week!
