Books for Moms
With Mother's Day quickly approaching, I figured I would feature some of the books that would make great gifts for Mom.
We reviewed Life is Tough - I Doubt I'll Make it Out Alive by Stacy Gooch-Anderson last month. What I enjoyed most about this book of humorous life lessons for moms is the way that Gooch-Anderson is easily able to reach the heart of her readers even when she is also tickling their funny bones. Read the review.
We also reviewed How Can I Run a Tight Ship When I'm Surrounded by Loose Cannons? - Proverbs 31 Discoveries for Yielding to the Master of the Seas by Kathi Macias in April. While this book tells of the author's struggle to become the virtuous woman from Proverbs 31, it also shows us the natural progression of growing in grace. Macias's compassion and humor make this a must read. See our review.
For a funny look at life, aging, motherhood and world events, look no further than When Life Stinks, It's Time to Wash the Gym Socks by Kelly Epperson. You can go here to check out the review.
For the mystery loving mom, consider The Devil Can Wait by Marta Stephens, the second book in her Sam Harper crime series--which we reviewed here or Kindred Spirits by Marilyn Meredith. You can find our review of Kindred Spirits here.
Moms who enjoy historical fiction might like Shades of Gray by Jessica James. This novel filled with complex characters and an intriguing plot was our choice for favorite book read in 2008 in the fiction category. You can the review here.
Also recommended are, The Lost Diary of Don Juan, A Novel by Douglas Carlton Abrams--which we reviewed here, Faith and Honor by Robin Maderich, whose review can be found here, and Copper Fire by Suzanne Woods Fisher. You'll find that review here.
What mom doesn't enjoy a bit of romance? For inspirational romance fans, you might pick up a copy of Ten Thousand Charms by Allison Pittman.
This book--which we reviewed here-is the first book in Pittman's Crossroads of Grace series. Quills & Promises by Amber Miller would be another great selection. Read our review here.
If Mom likes her romance on the spicy side, great books to pick up would be Woman on Top and Woman in Charge by Sherry James. These are both books in her Studs for Hire series.
You can find out more about the these books here and here.
