If, like us, you’re shopping for books to give as gifts, we have 12 days of books that are guaranteed to complete your shopping.
We’re starting our usual holiday shopping lists early this year. Like everything else, shipping might be delayed and because we don’t want our gifts to be, we’re starting now.
For these 12 Days of Books, BookEnds’s Moe Ferrara has suggestions made out of the love of Rainbows!
For the little ones in your life: Jack (Not Jackie) by Erica Silverman, illustrated by Holly Hatam is a wonderful choice!
If you enjoy memoirs, Moe recommends George M. Johnson powerful All Boys Aren’t Blue. In a series of personal essays, Johnson explores his childhood, adolescence, and college years in New Jersey and Virginia.
King and the Dragonflies by Kacen Callender is a flawless middle grade novel that deals with grief and sexuality.
Like a bit of action combined with fantasy? Then Belle Revolte by Linsey Miller is the one to read!
After losing his fiance a week before their wedding to a plane crash, Coen Caraway is baffled to hear a cryptic message left by his fiance and begins to wonder if the circumstances of the accident were much more sinister than it led off. After Elias by Eddy Boudel Tan is the emotionally driven debut you do not want to miss.
For a fantastically written paranormal YA novel, Moe recommends Aiden Thomas’ debut novel, Cemetery Boys.
Moe’s go-to bookstore this year is Pressed Books located in Erie, PA. Please consider supporting them by purchasing a gift off your list through their site: https://www.pressedbooks.com/.
