Let’s take a moment to admit it: moms are awesome. Which is why there’s an entire holiday dedicated just for them! And with Mother’s Day just around the corner, you may be doing some serious brainstorming in an effort to figure out what is the best gift for that mother figure in your life.
I think that all bibliophiles can attest to the fact that books are one of those gifts that keep on giving: you can keep it on your shelf and re-read it whenever you need to satisfy your book-loving craving.
Books definitely make great gifts for moms too! So here are three books you should consider giving to that special mom figure (along with a bouquet of flowers or a basket of chocolates, perhaps?):
Angels of Destruction by Keith DonohueWhy She’ll Love It: Donohue’s tale revolves around the relationship between parent and child – and not just blood-related parent child relationships either. We see the central character as defined by two different lives: the one in which she loves her own daughter and the one in which she develops a love for an adopted child.
Goodreads Rating: 3 and ½ out of 5 stars.
Plum Series by Janet EvanovichWhy She’ll Love It: Not only does Evanovich’s series revolve around a strong, female lead character, but also features quirky mom figures in the shape of Stephanie Plum’s meddling mother and possibly insane grandmother. Your mom will love these books for the comedic effect alone!
Goodreads Rating: 4 out of 5 starsSophie's Choice by William StyronWhy She’ll Love It: Styron’s novel has a little bit of everything including a historical setting, emotional impact, and wonderful, fleshy characters. If you’re momma figure hasn’t had the chance to read this one she should give it a try! Just warn her in advance that this particular novel may cause a few tears.
Goodreads Rating: 4 and 1/2 out of 5 stars.
