Favourite Holiday Reads: Harper Collins Canada

Favourite Holiday Reads Harper Collins Canada


My final collection of holiday favourites is from Harper Collins Canada. There are some fantastic books on this list, including choices for fiction lovers, pop culture fanatics, and non-fiction aficionados. Let’s just say I wouldn’t turn down any of them (well, probably I’d give the Doctor Who to my husband. He is a huge fan, and I’m unselfish.) For all of Harper Collins’ holiday recommendations, check out their 2013 Savvy Reader Christmas Gift Guide.


Harper Collins Canada is generously giving away a gift pack containing the three fiction titles below. Truly, that will be a win for one of you. The Rosie Project was one of my favourite reads of the year, Wally Lamb’s book was one of the most anticipated novels to be published in 2013, and Mitch Albom’s sensitive stories never fail to touch the heart.


For other holiday book recommendations and giveaways (which end on all different days..), see Simon and Schuster Canada, Random House of Canada, and Penguin Books Canada.  What will you be reading this holiday season? For some ideas for gifts that give back, have a look over here.



For Fiction Lovers…


The First Phone Call from Heaven by Mitch Albom

One of my favourite authors, Mitch Albom, is back with a heart-wrenching story about a small town that starts to receive phone calls from the afterlife. This beautiful book deals with the grief process, love, family and loss, and the power of communication. Warning: it definitely made me cry!


We Are Water by Wally Lamb

Wally Lamb’s new novel centres around the Oh family and how they deal with the matriarch, Annie’s, new marriage to a woman. It’s a powerful story about how we search for meaning, how we deal with tragedy, and how our family shapes us. It’s a great pick for book clubs too!

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion (one of my favourite books of the year)

This book has been called the ‘feel-good story of 2013’ and is guaranteed to warm your hear when the cold weather hits. It’s a charming story about a geneticist on a mission to find a wife. It’s perfect for anyone that loves a good rom-com!

For Pop Culture Fanatics…


Doctor Who: The Vault

The ultimate gift for Doctor Who fans! This giant book features interviews, behind-the-scenes stories, memorabilia, and more.


The Divergent Series boxed set by Veronica Roth

The Hunger Games fans are going to love this action-packed dystopian trilogy from Veronica Roth. The best part about reading this trilogy now? You’ll be ready for when the movie hits theatres in March!


For Non-Fiction Readers…


Anchorboy by Jay Onrait

The former TSN anchor will make you laugh til you cry with his stories about life as a sports broadcaster. This is a great gift for the sports fan in your life!

Save with Jamie by Jamie Oliver

The wonderful Jamie Oliver will show you how to save money in the kitchen, while still enjoying healthy and delicious meals.


Enter to win a gift pack from Harper Collins Canada with all three of these amazing fiction titles.
