 Last Minute Christmas Book Recommendations

Christmas is only a handful of days away, last dates for online orders are passing and you haven’t finished shopping for presents? Well join the club!


Here’s a few quick recommendations for Mum, Dad, Brother and Sister this Christmas. One hardback and one paperback for each, then a couple more at the end which may be helpful.






DAD


Steve Jobs Biogrpahy by Walter Isaacson



This biography of the Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is guaranteed to fascinate and is one of the most wanted books of the year.




The Trinity Six by Charles Cummings




Charles Cummings spy novel The Trinity Six is simply the best spy novel I have ever read. It’s smart, gripping and hugely enjoyable.




MUM


The Last Dance Victoria Hislop


The hugely popular Victoria Hislop is back with a beautifully crafted tale that is sure to get you hooked on her writing.


How to be a Woman Kaitlin Moran


Kaitlin Moran’s humorous look at being a modern woman is sure to keep your Mum laughing in agreement.




BROTHER


The Life of Lee Evans





Lee Evans honest autobiography is a brilliant insight into this comedy genius.



The Walking Dead Volume 1



The Walking Dead has become one of the most famous graphic novels of all time and the first volume shows you exactly why.



SISTER


the night circus erin morgenstern



One of my favourite debuts of all time, this stunning first novel from Erin Morgenstern is a perfect gift.



Life of Pi by Yann Martel


I couldn’t even begin to list the awards Life of Pi has won and been nominated for, brilliant and unique!


 

ANY ADULT


The Mad World of Sign Language The Telegraph





A little bit silly but brilliantly funny. Silly signs, rude translations and occasional sick placement, this will definitely give you the giggles.






ANY LITTLE ONES


I Want my Hat Back by Jon Klassen




Currently my picture book love, I Want my Hat Back is the most lovable book I have seen in a long time.


Well I hope this blog might have helped someone out there. If you need any more ideas, you can always drop me a line on Twitter
