Top Ten Books I Want To Give As Gifts (and to who...even if you won't actually give them!)

                                     hosted by: The Broke and the Bookish

This week is about the ten books I want to give as a gift and here is my list:

1.- Agnes Cecilia by Maria Gripe. AWESOME book I read when I was 12. I highly recommend it. I believe that I'd give this to one of my cousins since it's a strange story.

2.- Anya's ghost by Vera Brosgol. Another incredible book which I'd give as a present to another cousin. She likes this kind of literature so I believe she'd enjoy it.

3.- The catcher in the rye by J.D. Salinger. I've read this book three times and I have my own copy in English. I consider it a great book and I'd give it as a present for my partner. He hasn't read yet and I think he probably liked it.

4.- Bridget Jones' diary by Helen Fielding. this would be for my mum although she already read it. She enjoyed so much that I'd buy it or maybe another similar.

5.- Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Waterson. This would be for a friend who considers himself as Calvin. Yes, he is and I think he'd like to have his own copy.

6. Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. This would be for a friend of mine. I think she'd like to read it and it's probably she has watched the film.

7.- Coraline by Neil Gaiman. This book would be for a friend who really likes reading Neil Gaiman. I think she read most of the Gaiman's books but maybe this one hasn't read yet.

8.- El hereje by Miguel Delibes. This one would be for my grandfather. I think he'd enjoy reading about Spain.

9.- Jesus loves me by David Safier. This one for my sister. I believe she'd really like it because it's really really funny.

10.- My afternoons with Margueritte by Marie-Sabine Roger. This one would be for my grandmother. I don't know why I think she probably liked reading about this. Margueritte reminds me of her.

Well, this is my list but what about yours?


  1. Calvin and Hobbes is the best comic EVER! Great idea for a present :)

  2. Yep, Calvin and Hobbes is great! Why did I miss that? My nephews would sure love this comic!
