Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Today’s theme was top ten books published before my birth but I decided to go rogue.
Instead I chose to talk about ten books that I read and loved so much that I bought them in French for my kids to read!
I read a lot of YA and books were a fantastic way to bond with my kids when they were small or teenagers. It still is as my daughter comes with me to book events in London (when we could still travel that is).
Here are my and their favorites!
The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare (and they watched the movie and show after)
The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas (only the first three were translated in French and my daughter read the fourth in English as she wanted to know what would happen!)
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven (and my daughter was unconsolable)
A Thousand Boy Kisses by Tillie Cole (queue the tears again)
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Harry Potter by JK Rowlins (yes I read them before my kids did)
Enclave by Ann Aguirre (honestly an amazing dystopian that deserves more love)
Lux series by Jennifer L Armentrout
Making Faces by Amy Harmon (the beginning of my daughter’s love for Amy. She is now as enamored with her books that I am!)
Thanks for reading!
