The Book that Matters Most: A Novel
The new novel from Ann Hood, the bestselling author of “The Knitting Circle” is a story of love, friendship, secrets, loss, and the healing power of reading. The story centers around Ava, whose 25-year marriage has ended, and whose children have moved to other countries. Ava joins a reading group for companionship and rediscovers a book that got her through the hardest parts of her childhood, including the deaths of her mother and sister.
A side story belongs to Maggie, Ava’s daughter. Maggie gets into a disastrous relationship with an older man, and Ava must find that special book, and its author, to learn the secrets of her own past to help her daughter, and herself, start new lives. Readers say that the characters are believable and that they had enjoyed every word of this book. They also recommend it for their own book clubs and say that the read is worth every minute. This book is available in Kindle, paperback, hardcover, and Audible.
Loving My Actual Life: An Experiment in Relishing What’s Right in Front of Me
We all have those moments when we don’t feel satisfied with our lives. This book is a great gift for your girlfriend that will help her to love what she has and to be happy with her life. Author Alexandra Kuykendall spent nine months re-learning how to love the ordinary. She focused on one aspect of her life every month, looking for ways to be more content with her current life. By doing this, she has created a challenge for other women to do the same thing.
In addition to writing about her experiences during these nine months, she also interjects personal stories, humor, and poignancy throughout the book, making it a truly entertaining read. Women who read this book can be challenged to become more self-aware and learn how making small changes can make drastic improvements in their lives. This book is available in Kindle, paperback, Audible, and audio CD.
Porn for Women
Don’t worry, this isn’t what you think. What is sexy to a man is not the same for a woman. What she finds sexy is a man who cooks, cleans, etc. This book is loaded with photos of men doing just that, and it is something she will get a big laugh out of. It is a collaborative effort, coming from a study from the Cambridge Women’s Pornography Cooperative. They asked women what really turns them on, and they used their findings to create this fun book.
Inside, she will find photos of sexy men doing a number of household chores, complete with cute captions such as, “I love a clean house” and “As long as I have two legs to walk on, you’ll never take out the trash.” Giving her this book also shows that you are secure enough to not care if she looks at photos of other men. Take a look at yourself, and find a few things you can do around the house to turn her on.
Knock Knock: Why I’m Crushing on You Fill in the Love Journal
This is a blank book that you fill in before giving it to your girlfriend. You get to fill in the blanks, and you can say anything you like, from silly to romantic to sexy. This is one of the most personalized gifts you can give her, and it will truly come from your heart. If you are artistic, you may also want to add a few sketches. Or, turn it into a mini-scrapbook, and add some of your favorite photos of the two of you together.
This is a gift that she is going to cherish for a lifetime. It is hard cover and has a clear, removable plastic jacket to protect it from dust, spills, etc. There are 112 pages, and the book measures 4.5” by 3.25”. No matter what the occasion, this is one of the most romantic and heartfelt book gifts you can give her. She will read it over and over again, and fall more in love with you every time.
50 Shades Trilogy (Fifty Shades of Grey/Fifty Shades Darker/Fifty Shades Freed)
If she doesn’t already have these books, this is one of the best book gifts you can give her. Even if she has already read them, she will probably want to re-read them. And, this is a complete boxed set that holds all three volumes in the series. This is probably one of the most popular series of books for women to come out since the Flowers in the Attic series, and two of the books have been turned into major motion pictures.
Fifty Shades of Grey will take her from the meeting of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey to their erotic, daringly passionate affair. In the second installment, Fifty Shades Darker, Anastasia has left Christian, but they resume their affair. Finally, in Fifty Shades Freed, Anastasia must face her deepest fears that have suddenly turned into reality. This boxed set is available in Kindle, hardcover, paperback, and audio CD, and is the perfect book gift for your girlfriend (it may even give her some ideas to try with you).
These are just a few of the terrific book gifts you can give to your girlfriend for just about any occasion. If you really want to give her the gift of reading, find out what genres she loves, and look for other books she will enjoy in addition to these popular choices.
