Best Christmas Books for Adults 2019

Charlotte Walker

By Charlotte Walker on 5th November 2019

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, toys in ev’ry store.

But the prettiest sight to see, is the holly that will be on your own front door.

It's that time of year again, and boy has this year flown! Now the nights are darker, the temperatures are dropping and there's even a whisper of white stuff in the weather forecast it's definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Whether you like to buy your presents early or you're merely thinking about ideas for Christmas gifts we can't sing the praises of books as gifts any more. A present that can be opened, again and again, books are a great gift for the book worms in your life. If you're looking for recommendations for little book worms, take a look at our Christmas section on LoveReading4Kids too!

The books we have in this selection are a combination of Gift Books, Cookbooks, Biographies and Autobiographies, and Fiction titles. They're all brilliant tiles that picked up all year round and read more than once. A varied selection of new releases, for the avid and eager bookworm that devours everything straight after publication day, and books that we have loved throughout the year! 

We think these are the best books for Christmas this year and you'll be able to find something for everyone. Share your recommendations with us in the comments below. What books would you love to receive? What books will you be giving as gifts this year?

Take a look at our quick charging LoveReading Reading Light too, the perfect Christmas gift that blocks out 99.5% blue light and has up to 30 hours of reading time in one charge! A brilliant stocking filler and the perfect reading accessory!
