I hope you guys understand how long this post took me. Only, like, for-freaking-ever. You know, no big deal. It was fun though, if difficult. Do you guys have any idea how hard it was not to put fifty books on this list? There's so many other books I loved that would also make awesome gifts. Fifteen should suffice, though, and I don't want this list to get overwhelmingly large since that would kind of defeat the entire point of it and all.

But seriously, I hope that you guys find this helpful! And remember, if you ever need a personal recommendation or would like some more specific help, feel free to shoot me an email via the form on my Contact Me page! I'll be happy to help you find bookish gifts.

  3. Great list, Annabelle! I've only read Venom, but I have the others on my tbr or wish list. I appreciate your note about the Jessica Day George book because I've been wondering if you can read that series out of order or if you have to go in order - so thanks! :-)

  7. That reminds me- I still need to pick up For Darkness Shows the Stars.
    Also, now I know what to get for all of my friends, but I'm still stuck on a 'dad present' Why are dads impossible to shop for?
