Today is Black Friday, and for those of you outside the US who may have had the fortune to never have to deal with this madness, it’s also the #1 shopping day across America!! That’s why I decided to make a list of the most wished for books this holiday season, in case you were looking for any ideas of things you can get for your family members!!
Top 10 Overall
Harry Potter And the Prisoner of Azkaban: The Illustrated Edition is definitely in my wish list this year. How could I not want it, after how beautiful the first two (which my awesome friend gave me) are?
Obama: An Intimate Portrait is supposed to be a biography of our last president that’s from a “new perspective” which is what every single biographer says. I’m not saying it’s a bad book, I honestly don’t know anything about it, I’m just pointing out facts.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid #12 is the latest in the very long list of installments in the Wimpy Kid series (when my friend made me read this and Captain Underpants in Elementary school, I never would have imagined they’d make it this long.)
The Sun and Her Flowers by Rudi Kaur is currently the #1 best seller in the women’s poetry section on Amazon.
Wonder is a best selling book soon to become a movie. My mom, a middle school teacher, read it last year with some of her students, and for many of them, it was the first time they’d ever truly enjoyed a book.
Xanathar’s Guide to Everything is proof that D&D is going to be under a lot of people’s Christmas trees this year. Personally, I’ve never played Dungeons and Dragons, but I have heard some very good things about it.
Artemis by the author of The Martian is currently listed as the #6 most read book. Like his previous book, this one is also a sci-fi themed on, although this one seems to have a female lead.
Amazon has The Very Hungry Caterpillar listed as #1 in English as a Second Language Instruction, but in my book, it will always be #1 in my favorite kids books!
Top Ten: Teens
Xanathar’s Guide to Everything is on yet another list!
I haven’t started John Green’s latest book, Turtles All the Way Down, but it is sitting on my bookshelf (signed!) and mocking me.
D&D Player’s Handbook is yet another manual for the game, which is shaping up to be one of the hottest games this season.
The complete Harry Potter Paperback Boxed set is the perfect gift for anyone who hasn’t yet gotten to read the greatest story of our generation.
D&D comes back YET AGAIN with the Dungeon Master’s Guide.
Can someone explain to me why D&D has so many books? Isn’t it just a card game? Anyway, here’s the Monster Manual, and honestly, the illustrations look GREAT.
I may just have to get the book Women in Science for my best friend, who is also an amazingly scientific woman (is that English?)
Okay, how many monsters are in this game? Seriously. D&D is back at it again with Volo’s Guide to Monsters.
Philip Pullman, author of The Golden Compass, is back in the literary world with the Book of Dust, which hopefully reads more like a coherent narrative, and less like the life of an ADHD squirrel colony (which is my official stance on The Golden Compass).
I’ve heard nothing but praise for The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas, which is probably why it’s currently ranking as #1 in “Teen & Young Adult Emotions & Feelings Fiction” which is, admittedly, probably a small niche. But I’m also going to guess that teens are really into their emotions.
