Top Ten Tuesday: Books My Mum Has Attempted


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week's topic is a mother's day freebie (bit late for us in the UK haha!). I actually really struggled with this one! My mum's not a big reader, but I'm going to list the very few books that she has read or attempted to read in the past few years.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)
She started reading this years ago and didn't get past the Diagon Alley chapter...

Guy Martin: My Autobiography
She really loves Guy Martin and motorbikes and she actually finished this book! (Guy Martin races in the Isle of Man TT)

Guy Martin: When You Dead, You Dead
Same as above... but I'm not sure she's finished this one...

What If I Had Never Tried It: The Autobiography
So, my mum loves Valentino Rossi more than Guy Martin (she even has a tattoo of his racing symbol...). She's actually currently reading this one just now too.

    1. My mum only wanted to because I'm so into it, but I don't think she will ever actually read them all.

  2. It is cool that your mom attempted to read these books, even if she didn't finish them! My mom's not a big reader either, I don't think she'd really care for Harry Potter, haha, but that's okay :)

    1. Yeah, she does try occasionally. I think I'm having more luck converting my sister-in-law into a reader though.

  4. Eek, I'm so glad my mother is a reader! She never has enough time, but at least we have a love of books in common!

    My TTT.

    1. You are so lucky to have a reader as a mum! Mine just isn't really interested.

  5. My mom isn't much of a reader, although I think she wants to be. I think she doesn't really have the time and patience for it. But sometimes I will recommend books to her, and they usually have a Downton Abbey vibe, since she liked that show so much!

    1. I actually think my mum's the same - she just doesn't have the patience either. I don't think I'd recommend books to my mum though.

  7. Oh, I like this! I should've done one where me - as a mom - would try to recommend a book to my kids. Lol.

  8. What did your mom think of Harry Potter?

    My mom loved it when I recommended it to her many years ago. :)

    Here is my TTT.
