Top Ten Tuesday (12-13-11)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week, 
they post a different topic, and you get to create your own top ten list. This week's topic:

Books I Want to Give As Gifts (and to who ... even if you won't actually give them!)

1) The Harry Potter series - one of my oldest friends has never read these books (and she's a 7th grade English teacher!). I always encourage her to read them, but she hasn't done so yet. Maybe this would be a push in the right direction!

2) Save Me by Lisa Scottoline - I enjoyed this book and think my mom would, too. I keep on telling her to read it, but she doesn't!

3) Style by Lauren Conrad - I think my sister would really like this book (we both loved watching Laguna Beach and The Hills). Plus, I could borrow it from her to get some great ideas for my own style!

4) Bossypants by Tina Fey - I would give this to everyone who hasn't read this book yet! So funny, and one of my favorite books of the year!

5) Faith by Jennifer Haigh - this is such an amazing book. Taking a look inside the Catholic Church sex scandals from a unique perspective, it's a book that will definitely make you think. There are several people who I would love to give this book as a gift.

6) In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson - the story of William Dodd, the American ambassador to Germany in the mid-1930s. For any history lover, this is a must-read. I would definitely gift this to my dad!

That's all that I can think of this week! Oh well ... what books would you gift to people? Let me know, and have a great Tuesday!


  1. Harry Potter books would make a great Christmas gift! Perfect for light reading by the fire over the holiday. My husband has only read the later books in the series, so I think we'll be listening to the first two books in the car during Christmas travels.

  2. I have not read Bossypants. Then again I don't know who Tina Rey is (should I?)

    Here's my Top Ten Books I Want to Give as Gifts.

  3. I had Harry Potter on my list for the very same reason ... how can anyone NOT have read these books?

  4. Oh yes, Faith is definitely on my top ten list of the year!
