This listicle is gonna be huge, but it’s my top recommendations for each of the categories I actually read. Here’s some books that I recommend you buy for your friends, if you know kind of what they like, but aren’t sure what some good titles are.
I highly recommend you buy through Indiebound or Amazon, both of which I am affiliated with, but I’m a little biased. I really hope your friends will love these books!

This is a great list. Super helpful especially since the festive season is around the corner
I totally agree with Furiously Happy as a memoir suggestion. I have read and listened to it and it gives me the warm fuzzies to think about others reading it too!
Yes, I read it right after it released, and just bought the audiobook, and loved it. I’ve actually bought it (and loaned it out) to a few friends.
These are such great recommendations, and it’s super helpful that you grouped them by genre as well. Thanks for putting this together and, as always, fabulous post! <3
