Ten Books I’ve Made My Mum Read
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten list that members at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone join as you please. This week’s topic is Ten Books I’ve Made My Mum Read.
I took this freebie and ran with it. I don’t speak much about my family here or on social media because I like to keep them private, but if you have been to some events you might have seen my mum with me.
She was the one that got me into reading and as the years went on, I got her into YA. There is always book talk around my house and I am always recommending books for her to read. So I thought I would share with you 10 books that I have convinced her to read. Well, not convince, more like shove the books into her hands and told her to read.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: I read the first book in this series quite a while before I told my mum to read them. And after we went to see Laini when she was in Melbourne last, my mum picked up the series right away. Now I just need her to read Strange.
Reboot by Amy Tintera: As soon as I finished Reboot I told my mum to read it right away. I knew that she was going to like the book and I wasn’t wrong.
The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare: Now, you already know how much I love this world and my mum probably loves it just as much as I do. Saying that we both have rune tattoos. Both of us have read every single book in the shadowhunter world so far.
Every Series by Ellie Marney: This took a little more convincing. But I am not even sure why. She loved them and read them one after another.
The Vanishing Game by Kate Kae Myers: I started reading this series as soon as I received it for review. I think because I was so excited my mum picked it up as soon as I finished.
The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski: We both love our fantasy. So I knew right away that my mum would love this series just as much as I did. And I was right.
The Thing’s I Didn’t Say by Kylie Fornasier: I talked about Kylie’s books for some time and my mum wanted to see why I loved them so much. And she understood why. Plus we got to hear Kylie speak about this one and mum was intrigued.
The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson: Now I haven’t read any of the books, but from what I had heard about I knew that my mum was going to like it and she loves the series.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer: This was a little harder to convince my mum to read because of the cyborgs and android, as soon as she got into it – she binged the series.
And that is it. Do you read with your mum? Have you convinced her to read some books? Or do you get your dad to read books? Let’s Chat!
