Below are a few awesome books which even your bibliophile friends probably haven't read yet. These are books which probably never made it to a Waterstones 3 for 2 table, books which don't appear on the Goodreads shelves of avid readers I follow. Some are older books, which were moderately successful in their time, but which are largely unfamiliar to millennials. So, you know, perfect gifts.
Mood: Happy, AdventurousFor those who like fun-filled stories filled with thrills and adventure
Mood: Literary, coming of age, but excitingFor those who like coming of age novels with complexity, warmth and a plot that moves.
Mood: Literary Science Fiction and FantasyFor those who like their speculative fiction thoughtful and ambitious.
Mood: Childlike awe and terrorFor those who remember how big and wonder-filled and scary the world was when we were kids... or for kids.
