Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’ve Gifted

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Books I Hope Santa Brings This Year. I love giving books as gifts. If there’s a chance I can gift someone a book, I always do, so I thought that instead of talking about what books I want to receive, I thought I’d share a list of books I’ve gifted within the last year or so. I contemplated listing books I plan to give for Christmas this year, but then I realized someone might see the list before I have a chance to give it to them!

Cinder, 10th anniversary edition by Marissa Meyer: I bought this for a sister-in-law for her birthday and painted the edges! I also gave her Cinder book earrings and a Cinder themed scarf.

Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid: For another sister-in-law (I have four!), I gifted this book along with earrings shaped like vinyl records.

The Antiquarian Sticker Book by Odd Dot: This isn’t a book-book but it has “book” in the title so I’m counting it. This sticker book is all sorts of weird and wonderful, which is why it was perfect for one of my friends.

King of Scars and Rule of Wolves by Leigh Bardugo: I ended up with two copies of this duology so I gifted one to a friend who loves the Grishaverse just as much as I do.

Dune by Frank Herbert, Barnes and Noble Edition: I have a friend who is obsessed with Dune, so I thought she needed a pretty copy to own.

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern: I paired this book with a box of goodies that included a honey bee candle, a journal, honeycomb earrings, and coffee.

The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle, Barnes and Noble Edition: I also gave this person a copy of Sherwood by Meagan Spooner, Disney Robin Hood magnetic bookmarks, and a Robin Hood sword replica!

The Epic Bible by Kingstone Media Group Inc.: I have a friend who loves drawing his own graphic novels so I thought an graphic novel of the Bible would be a cool gift for him.

Race to the Bottom of the Sea by Lindsay Eagar: Part of the reason I wanted to give this book to someone was because I wanted to read it for a book club. This was part of a box where each item represented something inspired by her own writing.

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater: Probably the best gift idea I’ve had was to give someone a copy of The Scorpio Races along with items to unwrap as she reached certain parts of the story. You can see the full box idea here.
