Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question

  • Some books I have really enjoyed are: Wally Lamb – I know this much is true, Sebastian Faulks – Birdsong, crime thrillers by Karin Slaughter & Jodi Picoult books for easy reads



  • It depends on what kind of things you like. If you like contemporary romance/chick lit, Tracy Bloom’s books are fun. Jennifer Cruisie too. Molly Harper is also good if you fancy light-hearted paranormal romance.

    If you want something suspenseful, Before I Go To Sleep is chilling.



  • Go to the library there is do many to read



  • Head to your local library and think outside your box! My kids regularly buy me books to read. More often then not, they don’t look like something I would be interested in. But to my surprise, I thouroughly enjoy reading them! Jodi Picoult always writes a good story



  • Depends on whether you like romance, thrillers etc. I’d go down to my local bookshop or library to check out the new releases.



  • I love all the books by an author called “Paige Toon” perticularly “Lucy in the Sky”. You should check your local library they usually have a great selection and then if you don’t like them, you’ve not wasted any money. It’s a great way to try out new reads.



  • I’ve just finished Flight Risk which was awesome. The new Matthew Reilly book was fabulous too!



  • Could you give me a pointer as to th genres you enjoy?



  • Thanks for the question I was also interested in these answers sounds like some great suggestions now time to clear the schedule.



  • If U have a smart phone or tablet maybe consider getting kindle there are many books U can buy but if U get kindle unlimited there are many included. I have been reading ylthe Tremarnock series and love it!!



  • I love Paullina Simons. Her books are brilliant. I have read all of her books and get so caught up in them i forget where I am. The first one I ever read was Tully, but my absolute favorites are the bronze horseman trilogy. I have read these many times over the years and love them every time



  • Happy reading! :-)



  • Thanks mums for the suggestions – will search for these books. :)



  • The next book I want to read is “Lost Without You” by Rachael Johns. Maybe something for you too? There are so many great Australian writers!!



  • The prizes that are books on here are usually really good. I won the mummy bloggers last month and enjoyed it.
