Mother’s Day Picks
Did your mother pass down her love of reading on to you? Do you remember her giving you a copy of Little House On The Prairie or your first Judy Blume book? Maybe she doesn’t read at all and you want to share your passion of books with her. Either way, here’s a list of some of the best books from multiple genres that will make your mama smile on her special day!
The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl by Ree Drummond. This is a great cookbook and the author has an interesting story behind it. Basically, a city girl meets a cowboy and switches gears to become a married pioneer
woman. Her recipes are wholesome and easy.
The Lifeboat by Charlotte Rogan. This book is getting rave reviews and I am hoping to receive this for mother’s day! In 1914, a newlywed on a luxury cruise liner is secured a spot on a rescue boat by her husband after a terrible explosion. The story is about survival and trust as it is evident that in order for some to live, some must also die. Lots of mystery and an apparent page turner.
The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman. I just loved this book. A mystical, magical story about four courageous, loving, flawed women during the Roman Siege over Masada. This educational though fictionalized account is a must for historical fiction lovers.
The Art Of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Phillip Sendker.
A fairy tale and love story that takes place in Burmese countryside. This book explores the susceptibility of our senses, the meaning of beauty and the strength of unconditional love. Great pick for romance readers.
Alice Ozma, Jim Brozina. Ok, so this book isn’t about moms, it’s about a dad, but most importantly it’s about the love of reading. A dad and his young daughter set out to read for 100 consecutive nights, which then continues for many more years as we learn in this delightful memoir.
Between A Rock And A Hot Place Why Fifty Is Not The New Thirty by Tracey Jackson. This is a quirky mix of memoir, comic relief and comparisons of the author to her mother and grandmother. She is out to prove that the saying “Fifty is the new Thirty” is wrong and exactly why she believe that.
