Book Recommendations

Advent Calendar Challenge Day Twenty-Four

Still looking for last minute gifts? Or just want a book to cozy up with next to the fire while smelling the sweet scent of pine? You’ve come to the right place! Below are five books that I have read lately that I think you might enjoy. For more great reads, check out my usual reading list under the writing tab on my website!


These books are in no particular order.

  1. The Möbius Strip Club of Grief by Bianca Stone While this is a poetry collection, I would still put it on my must-read list. It is edgy and unique with a common thread throughout the poems connecting back to the idea of a burlesque=style purgatory. While it is obviously for more mature readers, I think it could be enjoyed by anyone 16 or older because it does contain important themes and the mature themes are all in good taste and put there with a purpose.
  2. The Dollhouse by Fiona Davis Any books by Fiona Davis are a home run. This was the first work of hers that I read, and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a strong female lead, history, and mystery. I had a great time following along with the characters and figuring out how the storylines were weaved together. This isn’t a young adult book, but readers from age sixteen and up can definitely enjoy this one.
  3. Light Years by Kass Morgan I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. While it is on the younger side and definitely for a young adult audience, it was still intriguing and fun for a short read.
  4. Cinder by Marissa Meyer Another young adult book! Books like these are great when you want a lighter, more palatable read. This is now one of my favorite young adult books, and the series also managed to pull me in. The fairytale elements were masterfully included in a way that still felt very fresh.
  5. After the Fire by Will Hill While I would consider this to be a young adult book, it can be very intense and so I would only recommend it for ages sixteen or seventeen and up. It explores the mind of someone who has been trained very differently than us, but puts her in a place in our world. Fabulous for anyone interested in what happens to people due to cults or fanatical religious groups.

I hope you enjoy any of these books if you decide to read them! And happy Christmas Eve!
