Books for the Holidays

Books are a great gift to give and receive. Christmas is around the corner and I have thought of some books that would be good gifts, for yourself and, of course, others. I also have provided a list of some books that you could get a jumpstart on before the movie comes out. (I like to read the book before the movie.)  Here is what is on my list for this upcoming holiday:



The Southerner’s Cookbook: Recipes, Wisdom and Stories from the editors of Garden & Gun

Appetites: A Cookbook by Anthony Bourdain and Laurie Woolever



The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi

Imagine Me Gone by Adam Haslett

LaRose by Louise Erdrich

The High Mountains of Portugal by Yann Martel


Books Being Made into Movies in 2017

Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly- Jan 6, 2017

The Zoo Keeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman- March 31

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls- 2017

The Mountain Between Us by Charles Martin- no release date

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah-no release date


As you gear up for the holidays, books are a thoughtful gift idea.  Pair it with a bottle of wine and you have the perfect gift.
