I thought we could all share ideas here to help each other with the Monday Discussion question: What Books Are You Giving As Presents This Holiday Season?
I'll go first.
For my mother-in-law who enjoys literary fiction and a Russian setting, I chose A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra. This was one of the best books I read this year [review soon].
For my father-in-law who loves a good mystery and appreciates a mix of the old, standard tropes with good characters and a modern setting, I chose the 2 Galbraith mysteries penned by J.K. Rowling. I also listened to both of these this year and enjoyed them [review soon].
I also suggested books for family members to buy others including:
- The Storied Life of AJ Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
- A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash
- Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
- Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel [also a fav of mine from this year]
What about you? For today's Monday Discussion share the books you are giving as gifts this year. Maybe you can help one of our fellow librarians pick a gift for someone on their list.
Best books discussions start next week.
