It's the most wonderful time of the year
December is well and truly upon us now and many of us are still panicking over Christmas shopping. If you're here then you probably love books, or at least know somebody who does. I'm going to help you out a little bit. I've read a lot of great books this year, but i've picked 5 that I think would make great presents this Christmas.
1. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch
Who for? Anyone who loves Fantasy!
Why? Snow Like Ashes is full of mystery, intrigue and more importantly - magic! Its pages are full of wonderful characters who you can't help but connect with. The story itself can be quite complex and there is so much going on that the whole book is quite a page turner. The atmosphere is chilling and is perfect for sitting by the tree and getting lost in a whole new world.
2. Geek Girl: All Wrapped Up by Holly Smale
Who for? Fans of geeky facts, embarrassing tales and anyone who enjoyed the Geek Girl Series
Why? One of the best things about Christmas is of course - Christmas books! All Wrapped Up is a super short story that follows the trials of Harriet and Nick's first date. It's full of laughs and lovely moments that will put a smile on your face.
3. Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine
Who for? Anyone with a passion for books, knowledge and kick-ass characters!
Why? This is one of my favourite books of the year. Heretics, heroes, ancient secrets and mysteries surrounding books and scholars! This book literally has everything. Step out of the Festive Chaos and be transported to Caine's beautiful world!
4. The Iron Trial by Holly Black & Cassandra Clare
Who for? Though aimed at a younger audience, this is perfect for any reader who loves to be completely shocked and mindblown.
Why? The Iron Trial is the first book in a long time that has really surprised me in the best way possible. It's unlike anything you've read so far. Fast paced and full of action, this will not disappoint.
5. Civil War by Mark Millar & Steve McNiven
Who for? Superhero/Marvel fans who are looking to get ahead
Why? Civil War is about to be one of the biggest movie hits of 2016 and is based on this graphic novel. It has wonderful art and a badass storyline that is going to blow peoples minds. Get ahead this Christmas and read up!
