Top Ten Tuesday


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme by The Artsy Reader. This week’s prompt is a freebie – so I’ve decided to just list the books I think would make for good gifts this year.

  1. The Harry Potter Series – for the person on your list who has been living under a rock.
  2. The Martian by Andy Weir – for the person on your list who follows the NASA page on Facebook or has a fascination with space.
  3. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline – for the gamer on your list.
  4. Becoming by Michelle Obama – for anyone who wants to read a fascinating tale of growing up and defining the kind of person you want to be.
  5. One Day in December by Josie Silver – for the lover of rom-coms in your life.

  1. Good shopping list. Of course, the Harry Potter books are for my nieces and nephew as well as Percy Jackson. I am always looking for ways of trying to give books.

  2. I am really excited to hear HP make the list. It’s a great gift for anyone who has or hasn’t read the series. For the super fan/collector, you can buy editions of the books they don’t have, for the newbie… well, like you said! It’s kind of my go-to gift for my younger cousins and their kids. At this point, I feel like it’s an unspoken rule that I’ll be forever gifting that series! Anyways, great recs/list!
