If you’re anything like me, you probably got a few gift cards for Christmas. Though I know I should spread the “wealth” over the next few months, I can never sit on a gift card long. Here are a few of my suggestions for spending that Barnes and Noble/Amazon/Independent bookstore gift card that’s burning a hole in your pocket:
The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
Who doesn’t want a little of everyone else’s family drama after the holidays?!
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
The best dystopian fiction book you’ve never read. Ishiguro is a literary genius and this book is the perfect entrance into his work.
Astray by Emma Donoghue
Attention spans can be short in the new year, so this short story collection is perfect. Wander the world with Donoghue!
I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
The perfect cozy novel for any time of year, it’s particularly lovely for winter. Any book that opens with “I write this sitting in the kitchen sink” is good with me.
