Not That Kind of Girl Themed Gift-Pack

Not That Kind of Girl is my third book to read of Siobhan Vivian’s. And guess what? I think it’s my favorite so far. It’s exactly what I was needing — something extremely well written with a storyline easy to get into, a main character who I could understand (even if she sometimes made me […]

Wendy @ Book Scents - Such a great gift pack! I haven’t read this book but now I really want to! Those movies are also amazing – except I haven’t seen the godfather. (i knoww, i know)

Alexa Y. - I am a nerd, and I love EVERYTHING in this post! I really like all the things that you included in this post, because they are things that I would like to own myself. I LOVE IT. (I also feel like I should read this book now.)

Lucy - Based on this gift guide I think I would like this book very much! The only book I’ve read by Vivian is the co-written Burn for Burn, so I have some catching up to do. I sure love that free verse duvet, ruler and mason jar tea light holder.

Unbreak My Heart Themed Gift-Pack

Unbreak My Heart by Melissa Walker is one of my favorite books from 2012. There’s a fantastic cast of characters and a main character who is working through some pretty major emotions post-big-blow-up with her best friend, Amanda. Her family takes the summer to sail together and along the route, Clem meets an awesome guy James. […]

elena - I love how detailed this site is and I think this is my favourite so far! Because hi, CUTE swimsuits and sugar and postcards.

ShootingStarsMag - I love this idea!! I actually have a feature on my blog called Make it a Gift where I sometimes find an item or two that would go great with a copy of the book…so having a whole gift basket with the book would be fab.

Cecelia - LOVE this idea! I liked Unbreak My Heart quite a lot, but I wouldn’t have thought of putting all of these elements together. Genius! (and it’s all SO CUTE. darnit!)

Alexa Y. - I loved this book too! And this gift pack is absolute PERFECTION. Great picks!

Between You & Me Themed Gift Pack

If you have visited Rather Be Reading within the past six months, more than likely you’ve heard me raving about Marisa Calin’s Between You & Me. This was an ARC that Magan sent to me pretty randomly. I reminded myself to start it in August, and never in my wildest dreams did I think this […]

December 12, 2012 - 5:00 pm

Alexa Y. - This may be one of the best “gift guide” posts I’ve seen yet. I loved this book (thanks for bringing it to my attention!) and I love what you chose as possible themed gifts based on it 🙂

Jen - You bloggers are going to kill me with all your gift recommendations. Sure, it’s Christmas time and I should be buying for other people. But also, I kind of want everything on this list.

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - I agree with Brie — I’m totally going to try to come up with a themed gift pack to go with my next book present =)

December 10, 2012 - 6:48 pm

Brie @ Eat Books - I haven’t read this book, but what a great idea – the Themed Gift! I so want to do this the next time I gift one of my favorite books to a friend. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
