Faith 'n Fiction Saturday: Recommended Gifts

Hello everyone! I was away all this week for the Thanksgiving holiday and just came back to an overflowing google reader and email inbox. But tis the season to find the perfect gifts for our loved ones and what better way than through Faith 'n Fiction Saturday?

As you may know, I launched a campaign to encourage people to buy books for the holidays (you can visit that site here) and there are some fantastic blogger who have really contributed a lot of great ideas into the blog. I hope you check it out.

But now it's your turn to share some ideas! What books should be others be buying for Christmas? Do you need any gift help? You can handle this topic in two ways....either make a list of recommended books to give as gifts this year OR ask a question about what book you should get someone. (for whom you have been unable to think of a book gift for).

Keep it about books!


I think if you have a young teenage daughter you might consider Lisa Samson's Hollywood Nobody series.

You might consider Andrew Peterson's On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness for a middle grade boy or girl or for a read aloud book.

For someone who loves armchair travel or women's fiction I recommend The Moon in the Mango Tree by Pamela Binnings Ewen.

For the woman who loves romance I recommend enthusiastically Julie Lessman's Daughters of Boston series.

Books kids will read over and over. Guaranteed.

Good question today, Amy.

I've gone twice to debnance and cannot find F&F. Help!

Jean Henry Mead said...

Welcome back, Amy. I agree that books are great gifts for kids as well as adults. I still have my dog-eared copy of Little Women from my eighth birthday.:)

Pam said...

This was a fun question to answer. I really had to think about my favorite books. I loved the Hollywood Nobody series too.

Got mine up, Aims. Sorry I missed last week - WAY too hectic. But I'm back (smile)

Sunny said...

Welcome back!!

Great question...and very timely! I have Moon in the Mango Tree but havent read it yet. Good to know you recommend it.

Andi said...

Hey Aims, I had to really think which was hard considering how much I read. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Hugs, Andie

I know I'm chiming in at the last minute here but my link is up.

I decided to just list a few of my faves that I've read over the last year or so and let readers see if they sounded like what they are looking for. However that poor little list doesn't even scratch the surface of the great books out there.

I'm going to by the first Hollywood book for my girl. Thanks for the recommendation!
