Good Books that are Easy to Read for Busy Moms

This post contains affiliate links.

I have a few recipes to post on the blog, but instead of having an easy night and using one of those, I decided to write a post of some of my favorite books I’ve read. I love to read and now that the kids are back in school I’ll have some extra time in the evenings.  

The definition of a good book to me is one that I can’t put down.  I can read it while fixing dinner, but if I need to lay it down I can pick it right up and know exactly what is happening.  It’s not one where I read an entire page and then wonder what I just read.  These are good books that are easy to read

I love to read, but it's hard to find easy books when you're busy doing mom things. Here's a great list of books that are easy to read for busy moms. #BookLover #EasyBooks #EasyBookstoRead #Busymoms #ebooks

Good Books that are Easy to Read

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skoot

This is a true story and I could not put it down.  It’s has a lot of interesting details on medicine and medical practices.  I really felt for this family and everything they went through.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

I am on the third book in the series now, but I could not put down this first one.  I love that it takes place in different places and times, but it’s still easy to read and not get confused.  The characters are English and Scottish so I found myself reading in an accent.  The main characters, Jamie and Claire, are great!  Start just game out with a show on this book series, but I’ve only watched a few episodes so far.

Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese

I didn’t think I would like this book when I started reading it, but loved it.  I liked this book a lot because it follows the main character throughout his life so you feel you really get to know him and his situation.

Legend by Marie Lu

This is a young adult series so it’s easier to read.  I read a lot of these type books because they are so quick to get through.  This one is similar to The Hunger Games and Divergent.  I really liked The Hunger Games when I was reading those books, but I found myself liking this better.

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

I love this author and I’ve read several of her books and they are all so different.  This author gives great detail about living in this dystopian world.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

This is also a young adult novel so it’s a little easier to read.  I loved the relationships of the main characters in the story.  I think all teenagers should read this story too.  It’s the story of a young girl during the holocaust.

Wild by Cheryl Strayed

I felt this book was so inspiring.  It made me want to take off and hike or do something amazing.   This is also made into a movie, but I haven’t seen it yet.

Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

Most people have seen this movie, but have you read the book.  It’s as good as the movie.  It’s a longer book, but just stick with it.  You can get overwhelmed how big it is.

Happy reading!!  I’m also taking suggestions for my next book in the comments below.

    Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls
    I just finished this and loved it. A novel based on a true life. Very easy read but a strong story. Love her writing.
