Christmas gift guide 2022 PART2
by The Feminist Bookshop Team, December 2022
We had such a wonderful response to the launch of the Christmas Gift Guide that we thought we'd bring in part 2! Here we focus on a range of genres that are currently topping the bestseller lists, suggesting our favourite authors in these categories who are writing incredible books that otherwise often get overlooked. We've also included some specially requested genres including 'witchy historical fiction' and 'decolonial feminism' so do read on to see our top recommendations.
A time honoured gifting tradition, celebrity memoirs are a staple of the festive season. This year has seen the release of some amazing titles. Here are some of our highlights and for the full list check out our memoir section here.
As the winter nights draw in nothing beats curling up with a spy thriller that takes you on adventures around the world. These books are also great gifts for fans of bestselling authors like Lee Childs, Robert Ludlum or John le Carré.
The festive season is all about romance. We've seen so many adult romance novels topping the charts these past few weeks (Colleen Hoover in particular) and we wanted to share some of our favourite lesser known titles that we think deserve all the love.
Looking for something to give the friend or family member who is an avid Agatha Christie fan or reads every Richard Osman as soon as it comes out? We have you covered with our cosy crime collection.
Or, for something a little grittier, check out our favourite murder mysteries that have you on the edge of your seat right up until the final reveal.
