Give the Best Books! 2018 Christmas Gift Recommendations

Compass Book Ratings brings you our annual, hand-picked book gifting recommendations broken out by demographic. However, these books would be loved by both boys and girls, and young adults might even want to sample from the adult recommendations. All books are relatively low on content for their demographic (with the exception of the young adult male category where we had to loosen up on the violence category so we could at least give four recommendations!), but click through to the book review to get all the details. So browse away for that perfect read for your favorite person.  Merry Christmas, happy reading, and delightful gifting!

THE BEST OF INTENTIONS

THE SEA BEFORE US

An accountant and CPA by profession, I found myself a book reviewer for Squeaky Clean Reads by happenstance. When the opportunity came to transform that website into Compass Book Ratings, I was excited to seize it and meld my business background with my love of books. As the mother of three teenage sons, I have read a large number of children and young adult books and I believe that there is great value in a content review service. As much as we would love to read everything our children read, there just isn’t enough time. I also appreciate being able to select books for myself that are really worth my precious and limited reading time. I believe there is a book out there for everyone–they just have to find it!
