I finally got my mom to read Uglies!
« on: July 09, 2010, 01:33:11 AM »

She couldn't get into it and refused for 2 years, but finally she's reading it! Yay! ANd even getting into it enough to say, "Geez, Dr. Cable is evil."

Just my opinion, parents shouldn't read teen lit. I managed to prevent my mom and dad from reading UGLIES, but they read the Hunger Games series and my mom read the Barcode Tattoo series. Guess I need to work harder. My mom said that when my Mockingjay book arrives she won't give the package to me until she's read it.  ::)

I'd let my mom read it, but she'd probably tell me I was reading crap [all newer teen books are crap in her opionion, lol].
She probably wouldn't let me read anything again, because she thinks everything has to be squeaky cleeeean.

Tell me if your mom ends up liking it!! xD

Just for the record, Harry Potter is not a witchcraft manual.
And My mom won't be a real Westerfan. She didn't like Midnighters. SHe likes murder mysteries.
