I’m back with my final post of books that would make great gifts. I’ve already written posts suggesting gifts for picture book readers, middle-grade, YA, and adult nonfiction. If you’re interested in reading those posts, I’ll put the links at the bottom. Here are five suggestions for adult readers:
The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow
This prose in this book is gorgeous. I’d recommend this to anyone who appreciates good writing with a sense of wonder liberally thrown in. It’s easily one of the best books I’ve read in a very long time.
Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames
Holy guacamole, this book is fantastic! There’s heart (and gore, of course). It’s fun and engrossing. Any fantasy reader will love this book.
Duckett and Dyer: Dicks for Hire by G.M Nair
This book is flat-out hilarious. I buddy read this one with Beth at beforewego (read her excellent review here) and we both loved it.
The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern
This was my most anticipated new release of the year. It did not disappoint. The writing is exquisite. It will suck the reader in and leave them breathless.
Master of Sorrows by Justin Call
Last but most certainly not least, I loved every moment of this book. It had a bit of a Name of the Wind vibe and belongs on the shelf among greats like Tolkien.
So, there you have it. These books would be great gifts. Have you read any of these? Are you planning on giving them to anyone?
