Another week, another gift guide. I planned on posting one last Friday, but between finals and my infusion on Wednesday, it didn’t happen. However, I did have a nice time over the weekend pulling together a list of gifts for readers. I hope you enjoy it, and if you’re a bookworm, feel free to just send it to a friend or family member.
The Celeb Book Lover – Talking As Fast As I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls by Lauren Graham, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer, Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendric, Cravings: Recipes for All the Food You Want To Eat by Chrissy Teigan, Around the Way Girl by Taraji P. Henson
Indie Books – These books are by authors who have published themselves and/or don’t really have “official” marketing plans. But they still deserve all sorts of good attention! – Aureole (my novel!), These Are the Moments, Blood And Water, The Distant Shore, Waiting for Paint To Dry
