Top Ten YA Books I’d Read With My Mom


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where each week we get a new topic for a top ten list.

Today’s Topic ~ Top Ten YA Books I’d Read With My Mom

I’m cheating, somewhat. The topic is actually supposed to be about books you’d read with a book club, but I thought I’d make it a little more personal. My mom and I can be our own book club, right? Plus, I feel like my dad has gotten a lot of  love from Blogging Me already; Mom deserves a hefty dose. (If you’re reading, I love you.)

This is basically a combination of books that have endearing mother/daughter relationships, books it’d be fun to read with my mom, and books she’d (hopefully) enjoy.

  1. Aw! Love your adorable spin on today’s topic, Danielle. <3

    A friend recently told me to read Saving Francesca, so I would love to read that with my mom! (If, you know, she actually would read something voluntarily.) Amy & Roger's was super adorable, but my mom's not a fan of teen romance (she likes mature and old school romances), so she'd probably fall asleep halfway through the book. I think my mom would appreciate Second Chance Summer more. Since it's a bit deeper and there's lots of family time involved.

    Awesome post, girl!

  2. Such a sweet topic. I have read all of them except ALIENATED and WHAT HAPPENS NEXT — do you recommend them? My Mami is dearly departed, but I know she would’ve been up for reading fun books with me. At least my big sister reads with me!

  3. Awe I love this topic! My mom doesn’t read much, but when she used to she would read more “NA” type stories and i’d always tease her. That being said, she did recommend The Sea of Tranquility to me and I loved that one so much. I love this topic Danielle!

  4. What a fun little twist on this weeks top ten! My mom, sadly, would not read YA with me. It would take a lot of convincing. She’s more into adult historical fiction and biographies. But great list! With many I haven’t read. I loved The Truth About Forever, A Girl of Fire and Thorns and Cinder. I really should try to talk my mom into some of these!

  5. Aw, yay! Great topic Danielle. <3 Fingers crossed you might get to read some of these books with your mom one day :) I loved a few of them. <3 Especially Cinder. Sigh. So good :D Thank you for sharing sweetie. <3

  6. Aww reading books with your mom is sweet. When I read a book that I think my mom would like, I’m always telling her to read it. I recently read Something Like Normal and LOVED IT! And Cinder of course. And Also Known As. I don’t think MY mom would like them, but I sure do.

  7. I loved Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, but I think my mom if she was still here would’ve loved the Fever series! She loved mysteries so I would get her to read Mean Streak by Sandra Brown as well. Great post here, Danielle!

  8. I love this topic! I think it’s so interesting even though my parents are not readers. It makes me question where I got it from, lol. I really LOVE Cinder and so does my little sister of ten years old! Alienated also was really great and really made me think!

  9. I like your spin! We did 10 books I want to read with my sister- though we both push books on our mom I think! I really need to read Marchetta’s contemporary books-those are on our TTT too.

  10. I LOVE THIS! <3 So sweet! I can count on one hand how many books I've seen my mom read. And one of them was My Life Next Door. Haha. Even though it took her weeks to read it. I would love for my mom to read Second Chance Summer and Amy and Roger! I haven't read many of the others, but I don't know if she'd read them. Haha. Great list hun!

  11. Aww I love that you picked books you’d read with your mom! I am super close with my mom and I can probably contribute my love of reading to her. I often pass off my favorite books to her once I finish reading them – mostly fantasy though. There are so many books I adored on this list but I just finished Saving Francesca and LOVED IT. Although that is no surprise, Melina Marchetta is my absolute favorite.
