Top Ten Books I'd Recommend To My Mom

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish


This weeks TTT is pick what books you would recommend to X person! I picked my mom because I got her to agree to try one of the books on this list once I've finished it! :) My mom doesn't like Fantasy or Paranormal, so I went with mostly romance books because I know that is something my mom does like books to have in them! I definitely inherited that! ;) Here are the books! :)

Top Ten YA Books I'd Recommend To My Mom



This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

Rhymes With Cupid by Anna Humphrey

Sean Griswold's Head by Lindsey Leavitt

Smart Girls Get What They Want by Sarah Strohmeyer

45 Pounds (More or Less) by K. A. Barson

Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg

Heist Society by Ally Carter

The Statistical Probability of love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

It's a Mall World After All by Janette Rallison

  6. This is an excellent list. I'm always recommending YA to my mom. Some she has liked and others not so much. Divergent and Delirium series have been her favorite.
