Top Ten Tuesday ~ Mother’s Day Freebie…My Mom’s Favorite Books :)

Posted May 16, 2017 by Michelle in Top Ten Tuesday / 13 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. They love to share lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Topic of the week…My Mom’s Favorite Books

I think my love for reading came from my mom, she took me to library school in the summer, always drove me to the book store to get books and introduced me to my first historical romance. So I asked my mom her favorite books, she gave me 3…who has 3 favorite books?!?!?! Apparently my mom, which totally ruined this weeks top ten 😉

My Mom 3 Favorite books…

  • Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell ~ As much as my mom loved the book, I adored the movie. I did read a little bit of the book but I actually read the second book. Thankfully my mom was able to give me a brief update about the first book so I wasn’t totally lost since she had more children in the book than in the movie.
  • The Other Side of Midnight (Midnight #1) by Sidney Sheldon ~ I actually remember her reading this book, she never got around to reading #2 but has read a few Sidney Sheldon books. If you ask for her recommendation this is pretty much the book she will throw at you. She has been wanting me to read it but it’s just not my kind of read.
  • Lucky Santangelo series  by Jackie Collins ~ This is my mom’s all time favorite author. She LOVES the Santangelo series. When I asked her what her favorite books were this was the series she said after Gone with the Wind. She is currently reading the last book in the series since Mrs. Collins has passed away. I don’t know if anyone will take over the series or if the series is now ended. I guess I will find out when my mom is finished reading it.

That is it, my boring mother only has 3 favorites….can’t seem to wrap my head around that. Please don’t ask me what my favorites are the list is longer than Santa’s Naughty and Nice list. LOL

Have an recommendation for my mom, starting to think I might need to help her find her next favorite author.

Thanks for stopping by

Have a great day and Happy Reading

    • She always took me to the library and bookstore. She’s the reason for my obsession for books lol. My dad doesn’t really get it either.

  1. The Other Side of Midnight- lol. My mom had that one too. She had all those kinds of books when I was growing up and I remember that one and others in the living room or wherever. Kathleen Woodiwiss too lol. How I remember that is beyond me- must have been the covers. o.O

    But yeah Mom I think jumpstarted my reading too, or enabled it anyway. She’d always get me gift cards for like bookstores so I could buy a ton of books… good times.

    • I wish I had read the first one but the second was pretty good also. I actually enjoyed it just not the movie of book 2. That was bad lol

  2. GWTW was a good one! I ruined my own Top Ten this week because I was too tired and it was late…Hahahaha! But I have 5 on mine 😉 Great idea for the prompt!
