Awesome Books to Gift This Christmas

Books are always high on my list of things to receive at Christmas, or any time of year really, so I've put together a little list of guaranteed crowd pleasers that will be sure to bring a genuine smile to your loved ones face this Christmas.

For the person who likes a laugh: The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. This is a great book for anyone who enjoys light-hearted or humorous books and is a good option for people who aren't big readers. It's short and sweet and there's also a sequel for when you get stuck on buying them a birthday present.

For the makeup obsessive: Pretty Honest by Sally Hughes. This has already made its way into my shopping bag and I can't wait to read it. Sally Hughes is beauty guru as well as a veteran journalist and brings some practical and useful advice to a genre that's usually stuffed with lots of pretty pictures but falls short on take-home advice.

For anyone who has not yet read it: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Seriously you need to remedy that. One of the best books I've read in a long time and one that will keep you guessing until the very end.

For the book snob: The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. A great option for those high brow readers who probably have a library full of literary fiction and a study that smells of rich mahogany (and who  probably don't get your Anchorman jokes).

For the teens: Girl Online by Zoe Sugg. Even I'm intrigued to read this and I'm not eleven. A cute story that mixes Youtube with New York and young love. One for the nieces who will think you are the coolest aunt ever.

For the non non-Fiction reader: #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso. Straight talking Sophia lets us in on her secrets of success and how she became the sassy CEO of Nasty Gal. Totally inspiring for any young woman who wants to be her own boss.

Let me know what books you are looking forward to gifting (or receiving) these holidays.
