Christmas Gift Guide: Bookworms

Christmas Gift Guide: Bookworms


Contains all gifted items and affiliate links (ad-aff)

It's time for the gift guide for bookworms!

This year has been filled with a lot of reading, and I've been gathering some great examples of gifts for the avid reader in your life. 

There are so many books out there to choose from, so I've tried to go with some which your bookworm may not own, are slightly more obscure or from varying genres. 

As always, you can take a look at all the other books I've been reading and buying on my Amazon shop page (ad-aff) if you need some more inspo. 

Be sure to check out my gift guide for friends & sisters too!


OLIGARCHY BY SCARLETT THOMAS


First up, we have a book that could win the award for prettiest cover: Oligarchy by Scarlett Thomas. 

 We follow Natasha, the daughter of a Russian oligarch (businessman part of a group holding power within the state) as she arrives at her new boarding school and is thrown into the world of all-girl teen angst as well as the struggles that go along with that. 

This is filled with dark humour, as well as mysterious twists and turns that parallel the struggle for power in the oligarchy to the same struggle within the boarding school.

POSTSCRIPT BY CECILIA AHERN


We finally have a sequel to P.S. I Love You and I couldn't be more thrilled. 

For fans of the book (and film), we finally find out what Holly does moving forward with her life in Postscript. 

Holly has started to move on with her life until a group inspired by Gerry's letters comes forward to ask for her help in doing similar things for their loved ones. This threatens to destroy all that she has done to leave the past behind, but she reluctantly decides to help them out. 

I'm a big fan of Ahern's work as you'll have seen from what I recommended in last years book gift guide, and I can't wait to get stuck into this myself with tissues at the ready.

HERCULE POIROT'S CHRISTMAS BY AGATHA CHRISTIE


For any fans of Agatha Christie's most famous detective, this copy of Hercule Poirot's Christmas with its special edition festive cover would make a great gift!

Poirot gets to work after a family reunion over Christmas ends in murder, and he turns to the family who all seem as guilty as each other. 

This will be the perfect Christmas read for anyone who likes a festive story with a mystery twist to it, or who are working their way through the stories of Hercule Poirot.

DANGER! COSMETICS TO GO BY MIRA MANGA


If you're looking for a great coffee table book to gift, and your loved one happens to be a Lush fan, then I have the perfect book for you: Danger! Cosmetics To Go by Mira Manga. 

This shows the rise and devastating fall of the company that came before Lush, that gained a load of press and TV coverage and then seemed to vanish into thin air. 

Full of nostalgia, this works its way through the facts like a novel rather than a real-life occurrence and would be amazing to give to someone if they were a fan of Cosmetics to Go before it folded.

UNQUALIFIED SUCCESS BY RACHEL M. STEWART


For the self-help fanatics, Unqualified Success by Rachel M. Stewart would make a great gift to help someone kickstart 2020. 

This book helps the reader to turn their goals into actual success stories, regardless of education. It concentrates on taking what you already have and turning it into achieving your what you're striving for career-wise. 

I can imagine highlighting many sections of this and returning to it time and time again to help my mindset when it comes to defining success.

THIS HOSTEL LIFE BY MELATU UCHE OKORIE


A collection of short stories around the lives of migrant women in Ireland, This Hostel Life is an important read to highlight how racism is still very prominent within the 21st Century. 

We follow three women who each have their own story to tell covering poverty, everyday racism and sexism. 

This is a great stocking filler read as it's only 83 pages, but it really packs a punch with its contents.

HAPPIFUL MAGAZINE


In last year's book gift guide, I spoke about Happiful and I'm so excited to be working with them again this year. I have been a huge fan of them since I was introduced to them, and have been reading their magazines since. 

As the UK's only magazine solely dedicated to mental health, giving the gift of a subscription to their magazine is a monthly reminder for your loved one to look after themselves and those around them. 

In time for the season of giving, they are offering a 50% discount on their 6 and 12-month subscriptions starting from January 2020 when you enter the code HAPPYXMAS19 at the checkout!
