As the Christmas season approaches, so does the season of snuggling cozily in bed with a warm cup of tea and a book to read. We all know at least one bookworm whose always looking for a new read to add to their collection and fawning over all things stationary. As a booklover, I’ve rounded up five of my favourite reads that I recommend as perfect gifts for those who love books. Here are my top five picks!
Not That Kind of Girl: Lena Dunham
Lena Dunham’s memoir is a hilarious collection of wonderfully written autobiographical stories of personal failures, embarrassing memories and successes in between. This book is a perfect read for girls looking for words of wisdom through the many trials and errors of Lena, who doesn’t hold back while retelling what she’s learned through her life of failed relationships, awkward breakups and even more awkward hookups.
Boss Girl: Sophia Amoruso
Sophia recalls her journey to success through her path of rebellion, risk taking and inevitable enormous success. This is a lovely read for those who need a little push to get started on working towards their goals and following their dreams. Sophia’s devoted dedication and refusal to change any part of who she is while working on her dream is a true inspiration.
The Alchemist is the classic tale of a young boy in search of his destiny, yet beyond this story lays the heartfelt wisdom Paulo Coelho is so easily able to illustrate through his words. Everyone should read this awe inspiring novel at least once, which brings to life the message of listening to your heart and following your dreams- a wonderful message to spread this season.
Never Have I Ever: My Life So Far Without A Date: Katie Heaney
This one is for all the girls who have ever overanalyzed a three worded text from a boy, fallen in love with someone they could never have and lived to tell about it. Katie Heaney doesn’t shy away from her awkwardness when it comes to her love life which makes you feel so much better about your own failures in love. Funny and oh-so relatable, Katie’s story is one many girls can read and proudly say to themselves, “I’ve been there, too!“.
These are only a few of my top picks for this holiday season, and I’d love to hear your recommendations as I’m always searching for new reads! What are you currently reading this season?
