See what Amanda is reading....
While I am not normally one to read nonfiction, I picked up this book of essays for my brother’s birthday and devoured it before gifting! These concise sketches explain all sorts of interesting topics: the Qwerty keyboard, Auld Lang Syne, Super Mario Kart.
I feel like I have to scream for this one: I LOVED THIS BOOK! Told in alternating past and present chapters, Hannah and Finn’s friendship is the perfect comforting, cozy story to read under the Christmas tree (or any time of year, really). Focusing more on family than romance, this is a must-read book everyone will enjoy.
If you’re a fan of Netflix’s Heartstopper, this book has to make it on your holiday wish list! Join Nick and Charlie for Christmas through the perspectives of all three Spring siblings.
This is an absolutely stunning conclusion to a wonderfully magical series! Returning as main characters are fan favorites (or at least my favorites) Jack Alston (Lord Hawthorn) and writer/thief Alan Ross as they help the group save magic. I LOVED this book.
Another instant classic, The Wake-Up Call is not one to miss! The enemies-to-lovers romance between receptionists Izzy and Lucas was sweet and heart-breaking as they try to return missing rings from the hotel’s lost and found. Great hijinks, hilarious characters and romance.
One of my all-time favorite romances, One Last Stop, is being rereleased in a gorgeous collector’s edition! This magically-realistic romance combines New York City, found family, pancakes and time travel in a beautifully wrapped queer package. It’s the perfect gift for any of your book-loving friends and family!
It’s been 10 years since the release of one of my all-time favorite novels! Through troubles with family, romance, friendship, and most importantly fictional characters, Cath’s story of a college freshman struggling to start a new chapter of her life (no pun intended!) is one anybody can relate to. In a beautifully repacked edition, this will make a great gift this holiday season!
The newest addition to the Shades of Magic world absolutely astonished me! V.E. Schwab never fails to combine gorgeous storytelling and enchanting worlds in their books, creating the best written fantasy I’ve ever read. You’ll fall in love with the entire cast of characters, new and old -- this book is a must read!
