Once a week, from now until Christmas, I’m going to be sharing my own shopping lists for family members or friends that I have on my list. I’ll be letting you know what they read, the challenges I face in choosing a book for them and some ideas I came up with. I’d love for you to also interject and recommend some that you think would fit as well! So check out my lists if you are also looking to find some books to give as Christmas gifts for the bookish people in your life.
Buying Books For
My 24 Year Old Twilight Loving Sister
1. She only reads about 5 books per year
2. She really only reads vampire books (although she just DID read Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater) and NEEDS romance in her stories. Like HAS to have it or it is a no go.
3. She needs something that grabs her attention right from the start and continues the whole way through — she gets bored easily.
My strategy when trying to find books for her is going to be to find a few vampire books with prominent romances but also try to introduce her to the wonderfully wide world of other paranormal creatures that I think she’ll go for.
Books She Read & Enjoyed After Twilight
Raised By Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
The Dark Divine by Bree Despain
So these are my prospective picks for my sister who is a fan of the Twilight books and is looking for something to read after! I hope this is useful for any of you buying for the Twilight fans/paranormal fans in your life. Let me know if you have any suggestions for me to look into as I try to shop for her and find the best choices that I know she’ll love. I know she won’t really be interested in mermaid, zombies or any mythological creatures.
