Happy New Year’s Eve! I know a lot of us probably got gift cards or even some money from various friends and families over the holidays. Now it’s time to utilize those, and what’s better than books? I thought I’d share a fun “gift guide” of sorts of books that I think you should use your money or cards on! What would you choose?

A Game of Thrones: The Illustrated Edition– I’ve never read or seen Game of Thrones. Okay, don’t get angry! I am a bit curious, but I’m not sure if’ it’s for me or not. However, I love that you can buy the first Game of Thrones novel with illustrations. I actually got this for a friend of mine! I haven’t given it to her as I write this, though, but I am SURE she’ll love it.
Young Frankenstein: A Mel Brooks Book: The Story of the Making of the Film– I just love this movie! I think this would be a really interesting look at the making of the film. It’s also a book I’d really like to get another friend of mine sometime in the future because she’s a big fan of this movie too, as well as Mel Brooks in general.
Disney Manga Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas: I absolutely love this film and I’d really like to own this manga version. Isn’t it cool?
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne: I had to add this to my list as it’s something I want to read, but it’s also all over the blogosphere. I think I’ve only read one “meh” review for it too, with the rest being really positive, so that’s a good sign!
Rejection Proof: How I Beat Fear and Became Invincible Through 100 Days of Rejection by Jia Jiang: I really love these type of self-help books where the author did a certain challenge, kind of like The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. I’m hoping to read this one sometime in 2017!
Slimed! An Oral History of Nickelodeon’s Golden Age by Mathew Klickstein: I grew up watching the classic Nickelodeon TV shows and this book has been on my personal wish list for years now. Would you read this? What Nick shows did you love?
To Timbuktu: Nine Countries, Two People, One True Story: I actually saw this one at my library years back but I think it was weeded out, so now I have to purchase my own copy. I believe there is artwork throughout the book, which I love! Plus, I like nonfiction books like these.
The Who, The What, And The When: 65 Artists Illustrate the Secret Sidekicks of History: I think we all know that some of the greatest names in history didn’t get where they did alone, so I love the idea that we can learn more about these secret sidekicks in this collection!
Funny! Twenty-Five Years of Laughter from the Pixar Story Room: I love Pixar films. Some of my most favorite animated movies are from Pixar, so how cool does this book sound? Would you buy something like this?
There you go! These are some fun ideas that you could put your cash/gift cards towards, if you needed any more ideas!
