TOP TEN TUESDAY: Ten authors my mum recommends

(Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and The Bookish!)

This week is Mother’s Day freebie week (no, UK readers, we haven’t travelled back in time – America just have it far later!) so I thought what better way to use this freebie than to team up with my mum and get her to tell us all about her favourite authors.

10) Howard Marks

“There are so many addresses given of places in the local area, and because it’s things that genuinely happened it’s amazing to see how he got away with it!”

9) Damien Boyd

“I like the main detective: the character, and the way he works with his team.”

8) Jay Bonansinga

“Because The Walking Dead! Also, there’s a lot of characters they should have brought into the TV series. They’d work brilliantly.”

7) Luke Delaney

“He can see things other people can’t. He can think as if he’s the criminal.”

6) Anthony Horowitz

“I just absolutely love his books. They’re good for adults and they’re good for kids; they’re good for everyone!”

5) Robert Bryndza

“The main detective makes the books. She’s female, and she won’t take shit from anyone.”

4) Rick Riordan

“Same as Anthony Horowitz. He has a worldwide appeal.”

3) M.J. Arlidge

“You discover a lot of back story about the female lead as the series goes on. You don’t find out a lot to start with, so you have to keep reading.”

2) Chris Carter

Chris Carter, author

“You can never work out what’s going to happen next! There are so many twists. I always think I’ve worked it out, but I’ve never been right.”

1) Kimberley Chambers

“I love the characters, and I love the way the story is built around the workings of the entire family – especially the Butler series.”

I hope you enjoyed this Top Ten Tuesday! Has your mum ever recommended any authors to you, and if so did you listen to her advice?

  • What a great list. I’ll have to check out Robert Bryndzas books.

    • They all sound so interesting! I just don’t know where to start.

  • Such a lovely post!! <3

  • Allyson Gilmore

    I love that you got your mom involved in this week’s TTT! That’s so adorable 🙂

    My TTT.

    • Aww, thank you! She wasn’t too sure to start with, but she enjoyed recommending things by the end 😛

  • I really like this idea (and kinda wish I thought of it.) It’s cool way to honor your mom. My mom is a huge part of why I love reading so much, and I know she still reads past her bedtime. <3

    My TTT:

    • Thank you, that means a lot to me 🙂 My mum has always supported my reading but hasn’t really understood it in the past, so it’s been really exciting to see her discover her own love over the past few months!

  • Jo

    Rick Riordan is one of my favourite authors, your mum has good taste 🙂
    My TTT:

    • I really need to try reading one of his books, because everyone loves him!

  • Hi! My mom used to read Danielle Steel novels, and so I read a few. They were such quick reads, I ended up reading quite a few. I still don’t understand how she can churn out so many books so quickly! 🙂

    • Ooh, I haven’t read Danielle Steel yet! I think I’ll have to give her a go, because I love quick reads.
