Top Ten Tuesday: Holiday Book Ideas for the Kids in My Life

Top Ten TuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is “Holiday Gift Guide freebie (ten books to buy the YA lover in your life, 10 books to buy for your dad, etc.).” I wasn’t sure how I was going to approach this week’s topic until I realized that I’ve been spending a lot of time looking up books to buy my niece and nephews (two eight-year-olds and an eleven-year-old). So I thought I’d share with you some of the books I’m considering for Christmas gifts. Covers are linked to Goodreads.



Have you had the pleasure of reading any of these? What’s the last kid’s book you bought? I’m open to more suggestions if you have a recommendation for my niece and nephews (two third graders [boy and girl] and a sixth grader [boy]). Let me know in the comments and be sure to leave a link to your own TTT post, so I can visit.

  1. Great list! I just bought a bunch of kid’s books for my daughter’s 9th birthday last week! Her favorites are the Land of Stories series, anything by Raina Telgemeier (Sisters, Smile, Drama, Ghosts, etc), and Nate the Great. Diary of a Wimpy Kid is another popular one, as is almost any graphic novel she can get her hands on! Serafina and the Black Cloak is another popular one in our household.

    Here’s my TTT:

    • Raina Telgemeier is a popular author right now (or so I hear from my nephew). I need to check out Land of Stories. I believe it features twins, right? My niece and nephew are twins, so I’m sure they’d get a kick out of that. Diary of a Wimpy Kid is also popular with this lot. I loved Serafina myself!


  2. Unfortunately the kids in my life are all still too small to start reading.. Or too old to buy cute books like those for 😉 I would definitely give them Rowling & Gaiman, and I’d love to introduce them to Star Wars as early as possible haha, good choices!
