Hey guys! So it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by the lovely The Broke and the bookish. I am excited for this one because this one is one I can choose but has to do with mother’s. I decided it would be fun to go through some of the books I’ve read and try to pick out which ones I would buy for my Mom. My mom does like to read. I feel she’s more into romance books than I am. I am happy to say I did get her into Outlander even though I haven’t read the books. I know she’s been enjoying though so I’m excited to make this list. Her birthday is in July so maybe I can buy her a few of these books and update you guys on how it ended up going. Alright let’s dive in!
Ten Books I Would Buy For My Mom
And Then There Were None By Agatha Christie
Reason: Okay so if you guys haven’t already noticed this is one of my favorite books. It’s such a classic and I feel everyone should check it out. I think I also really enjoy it so much is because it’s a classic that I actually really enjoy. I’ve tried reading a couple of classics and just felt they weren’t for me. I feel since it’s such a famous novel that this is something my Mom should read.
Dark Places By Gillian Flynn
Reason: Okay so everyone knows Gone Girl but that was the one Gillian Flynn book it took me a couple times to read to get into it. Dark Places was the first book I read by Gillian and I really really enjoyed. I was hooked right away and completely surprised by the ending. I would love to get my mom into Gillian Flynn books.
Thirteen Reasons Why By Jay Asher
Reason: So my Mom just told me she just finished watching Thirteen Reasons Why on Netflix. Now I’m pretty sure she hasn’t read the book yet. I don’t think she really reads Young Adult books. I can see her being into them. She said she really enjoyed the show so I feel she should read the book now.
The Night Circus By Erin Morgenstern
Reason: So The Night Circus was a book I ended up reading this year and really enjoyed. It was such a fun and magical experience that I feel my Mom needs to give this book a try. The writing is so visually stunning that I felt like I was actually there. I was so upset that this wasn’t actually a real thing. I feel this is something she would really enjoy as well.
The Unexpected Everything By Morgan Matson
Reason: Right now this is my favorite Morgan Matson book. I do plan on reading the 2 I haven’t yet this month so that may change. I think this is such a fun contemporary book that I can see my Mom really enjoying. It’s a cute read and I feel it’s such a enjoyable summer read. Plus her birthday is in the summer so this could be a possible gift.
Me Before You By JoJo Moyes
Reason: So this was a super hyped up book that got turned into a movie last year. I can see this being something my Mom would like. She does like her romance books. I’m not sure if she saw the movie but I feel this would be the perfect gift because I could buy her the book and the movie. I’m a big fan of books to movies so this is something I would try to get my Mom into as well. Plus if she likes it I could always buy her the second book later on. I did think the second one was a bit better.
Big Little Lies By Liane Moriarty
Reason: I’m surprised this book didn’t come to me sooner. This book’s television show just ended a couple weeks ago. I would totally buy her the book and the dvds since my Mom doesn’t have HBO. I really enjoyed both the book and television show a lot. I loved the writing and overall really enjoyed the story.
Something Borrowed By Emily Giffin
Reason: This is a book that I really enjoyed even though I feel the story is so messed up. This is bad like hooking up with your friend’s fiance bad. I somehow really enjoyed it. I did find this book to be a roller coaster of emotions. I think my Mom would like this for the romance. This is also another book that got turned into a movie. It’s a shame that this book has a cute story but is also soooo messed up. I really want to watch the movie again now.
13 Little Blue Envelopes By Maureen Johnson
Reason: This is such a cute story. It’s about a girl whose aunt has died and has left behind 13 little blue envelopes. The envelopes send her traveling on this amazing trip around the world. This is another Young Adult book but I know my Mom loves to travel so I can see her enjoying this just alone from the places gone in this book.
The BFG By Roald Dahl
Reason: Okay so I had to put this book on the list because this is probably my favorite Roald Dahl book. I loved it even more seeing it come to life on the big screen. This was such a fun book that I really enjoyed a lot. I don’t think my Mom has ever read it and I think it’s too cute that you can’t help but love it.
I highly recommend these books for your Moms as well. These are all books I enjoyed and would love to reread even at some point. Do you see any books you would buy for your Mom? If not, what are some of the books you would buy for your Mom? I would love to hear what you guys have to say.
