Holiday Buying Guide 2021 - Books to Give

by Donna Huber


It's time for my annual Holiday Buying Guide. Since 2011 (the first year of Girl Who Reads) I've been recommending books to buy the readers on your list. I have read 148 books this year and so many of them were really good, but only 27 garnered 5 star ratings. From those 27 books, I've narrowed my list of recommendations to 11 books with a few getting an honorable mention. I hope you find this list helpful in choosing the perfect book for the readers in your life.

3 Books for Fans of Women's Fiction

by Susan Roberts


Women's fiction is one of the most popular literary genres. I think the draw is the strong female character facing issues that most women can identify with. We often see ourselves, coworkers, relatives, and friends in the characters. The story often gives us hope that we too can overcome our own struggles.

The Simulated Multiverse by Rizwan Virk ~ a Nonfiction Review

by MK French


Rizvwan Virk is a successful entrepreneur, investor, bestselling author, video game industry pioneer, and indie film producer. Virk currently runs Play Labs @ MIT, leading to a unique experience able to explore the idea of parallel worlds and multiple simulated realities. With the media dealing with multiverses, it's definitely a hot topic right now. Riz had previously spoken on the topic and wrote the book "The Simulation Hypothesis," outlining the hypothesis that our reality is a simulation, rather like the Matrix.

Lightning Down: A World War II Story of Survival by Tom Clavin ~ a Nonfiction Review

by Donna Huber


I read a ton of WWII fiction. In the last few years, I've been more drawn to biographical WWII fiction about real people (i.e. Code Name Helene). But I haven't read any WWII nonfiction. I remedied that during Nonfiction November by reading Tom Clavin's new book Lightning Down.

2 Nonfiction Books for Cancer Survivors

by Susan Roberts


An estimated 1,762,450 cancers were diagnosed in 2019, which equals more than 4,800 new cases each day. The lifetime probability of being diagnosed with cancer is 39.3% for men and 37.7% for women, which is a little more than 1 in 3.  Two new books about facing cancer and suggestions of how to deal with cancer in yourself and others both give some excellent suggestions that I wish I'd have known when my dad was dying of pancreatic cancer a few years ago.

The Matzah Ball by Jean Meltzer ~ a Review

by MK French


Rachel is the daughter of a prominent rabbi and reproductive endocrinologist and has always tried to meet everyone's expectations. Because of that, she can't tell them about her love of Christmas and her life as a writer of Christmas romance novels. Her publisher insists that she write a Hanukah novel instead, so she must find inspiration where she can get it: the high-end Matzah Ball Max that is run by Jacob Greenberg, who she had last seen at summer camp at twelve. Even so, he still irritates her, and she's convinced he's still the awful prankster he used to be.
