Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s theme is Top Books I read because someone recommended them to me. So I thought it’d be fun to do the top books I’ve read because my mom recommended them to me. For the longest time I got almost all of my book recommendations from my mom. Even now if there is popular book out we both want to read we take turns reading them first and reporting back to see if it’s actually worth it. Growing up, both of my parents read a lot so I grew up just grabbing books off of their shelves that looked interesting. Mostly my dad just tosses random memoirs my way (which are almost always fantastic) but it’s my moms recommendations that are always perfect. So below are the top ten books she’s thrown at me recently.
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
Still Alice by Lisa Genova
Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan
The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates by Wes Moore
Joyland by Stephen King
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler
Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight

Where the Heart Is by Billie Letts
