Hey y’all!
 
Happy holidays!
 
Oh my gosh! I love the month of December so much. This year is kind of different because I’m broker than I have ever been but I’m happier. Like, I’m really happy. And thankful for the last eleven months, I have learned so much about my self that I just want to hug everybody for being a part of my life. I saw GoodReads’s A Very Bookish Gift Guide (read HERE) and decided I was going to adapt and write one too because, why not?
 
Books make the perfect gifts.
 
To get a very diverse choice, I asked some of my favourite people on earth to recommend two books that would make the perfect gift to anyone; professional reader, amateur reader, avid reader, reader who likes to collect for the sake of collecting, all types of readers, really.
 
Enjoy…
