Books for Aurora

Nothing beats going through a family library, a collection of books that made an impact on a loved one so much so that they preserved them for years. I shared a set of books I’d set aside in 2015 under “Books for my daughter.” I’ve read many more titles since then especially ebooks.

So, whenever I come across books that move me, I keep them safe, set them aside for my daughter.


I hope she loves reading and does not limit her words to one genre but reads as many books and as diverse authors as possible.



I hope that she comes across a book, looks at it with awe, and asks questions about the book. For, if she asks “how did you come across this book?” I’ll have an answer and a story to accompany it.



And dear heavens, if she is not a book lover, spare me the heartbreak and whatever you do, do not turn me into her enemy when I try to make her read.

  1. Love the line…If she doesn’t like books…that’s how I feel about my son. He read voraciously tot through 10ish. Now, that he’s a 12, he’s reading less. Still reading, but not devouring 5 books in a week. I hope it’s just his age and the busyness of tween life because I have rooms filled with books for him to read. Literally. I’ve held on to books “because my child might want to read this.” And I was saying this waaaay before I even had a child.

    1. You have just put a huge smile on my face. 😊My nephew is 9 and I got him a comic book which he loved and devoured for two days then went back to playing games on his mom’s phone. I hope your son rekindles the love of words and gets to read the books in your collection.

      1. Oh he still reads, and says he loves reading, but he no longer sits for 4 hours straight. I want the four hours straight back. Lol! The comic books are wonderful to get boys hooked! So are those Wimpy Kid books.
