Top Ten Books To Gift This Holiday Season

The Broke and the Bookish host a weekly Top Ten meme dedicated to mostly bookish pursuits.

This week's meme is a Holiday Gift Guide!  I've chosen books for some of the hardest to shop for people in life and made a few suggestions.  Hope you enjoy! :)

1. For the friend who has to read the book before they see the movie - The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

  1. All of these recommendations and gift ideas are absolutely perfect. :) I loved Hyperbole and a Half so much, I think it would make an awesome gift for people who love humor (and even those who don't!). And The Hobbit is the perfect classic adventure story - and there are so many different editions available! Great list!
