The hottest books for Christmas-time (for you, and as gifts)

November 19, 2013

Exclusive Books has one again taken the “work” out of choosing books and gifts this festive season by handpicking the “Wish List”, top reads and buys in various categories. These books will be specially marked in stores, and usually on shelves at the front of each store.

You’ll notice by my choice of feature image that my favourite is Save With Jamie and this time round, I’m determined to actually use a cookbook. As in, cook from it. But this one looks like a goodie.

The kids’ (9-12 age group) Wish List books include: Diary of a Wimpy Kid Book 8 by Jeff Kinney, Heroes of Olympus: House Of Hades by Rick Riordan, Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman and In die land van Pamperlang by Linda Rode. Teens can look out for books such as Russian Roulette by Anthony Horowitz and Skulduggery Pleasant: Last Stand of Dead Men by Derek Landy.
