Mother’s Day is almost here and finding the right gifts is always so difficult and especially now when we can’t leave our homes to go shopping. So, whether it’s an old-school hardcover or an e-book on Kindle, we have the perfect list of new books to pick from for your favorite bookworm or casual reader.
There are fan-favorite authors like Terry McMillan, whose latest novel, It’s Not All Downhill From Here, reminds us how important our gal pals are times of crisis – no matter how old we are. On the nonfiction side of female empowerment, we tore through Glennon Doyle’s recent memoir, Untamed. It’s raw and brutally honest, but it reminds us to live to up our fullest potential by setting up boundaries — although yes, we know that boundaries are sometimes hard to keep.
And if you think mom wants some lighter fare to curl up with, try All Adults Here. A refreshing look at the issues of adulthood: sibling dynamics, childhood traumas, and cringe-worthy middle-school memories in the most humorous way. Or go in the complete opposite direction with You and Me and Us. But it’s probably best to deliver this book with a Costco-sized box of tissues because this story, well, it’ll turn on the waterworks.
If you can’t decide which book to get, maybe a stack of books is the way to go this Mother’s Day? Especially since we aren’t going anywhere any time soon books are the best way to escape our current stay-at-home reality. One or all, these books are the perfect gift this holiday.
Happy Mother’s Day!
