Book Recommendations

The very kind people at House of Hope on Summit Ave. asked us if we would come by today after their service to give our book recommendations for the holiday season. 

We arrived with several young adult, middle grade, and picture books, gave a brief description of each, and explained why we thought they would be good selections for a gift list. 

The picture books we brought were: I Want My Hat Back and This is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen, Squid and Octopus, Friends for Always by Tao Nyeu, and Black Dog by Levi Pinfold.

For the middle grade books we chose: Wonder by R.J. Palacio and Ungifted by Gordon Korman.

And for our young adult selections we picked: Cinder by Marissa Meyer, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, and the Matched Trilogy (Reached, the third and final installment, was recently released) by Ally Condie.

We had so much fun giving this presentation, and loved that some members of the congregation stopped by the store immediately after to look at the books we have at Addendum.  Thanks to House of Hope for giving us this opportunity!

If you have a group or organization you think would enjoy receiving book recommendations from our store, please get in touch. We'd love to do something like this again!

Update: We have continued to have members of the House of Hope drop by our store, and it has been a pleasure talking with all of you - thank you!
