The Christmas Gift Guide Tag | Original Tag!

As we all know, the holiday season is really about giving. We have met so many great bloggers this year and we really want to show them our appreciation for their friendship and advice. We would love to give every one of you a personal gift, but that's not really practical, so, in the holiday spirit, we are helping you find gifts to give fellow book lovers in your life.

The rules are simple:

1. Pick at least one book/series for each category.
2. Spread some holiday cheer by tagging at least three other bloggers.
3. Add your link to the Linky on this post. We would love to see your answers!
Also, feel free to use our graphic for your post!

(All of our books are books that came out this year, or a series that continued this year. Feel free to break this rule or set another!)

Panic by Lauren Oliver

  1. Thanks for tagging me! I can't wait to get started on the post for this! OMG I need to read the Darkest Minds. Also I feel kind of weird being the only person who hasn't read the Fifth Wave.

    1. It was a really fun tag to do! Also, you should definitely read The 5th Wave. If you do not like the idea of aliens, do not worry. The aliens are not the stereotypical green martians. I really loved how they were re-imagined! I cannot wait to see your tag!

  2. Yes! I am definitely going to add this to my blog! Thanks so much! P.S. I might use some of your answers because they are the first things that pop into my head too. lol

  3. Thanks! We do not mind repeats, all of these books deserve to be used more than once. I am excited to see your tag!

    1. Repeats just justifies giving the book as a present. lol :)

  7. Ooh I liked this! I was tagged in it recently, so see this as gathering inspiration ;) There were also an awful lot of books here that I have yet to read! I really wouldn't mind being gifted a lot of these myself!
