Viking

We’ve all caught Mom snooping through our things as teenagers. But if by the off chance you noticed a book or two missing from your shelves, then you’ve got a reader on your hands. (And the best mom ever, really).

Nothing says “I love you, Mom” like gifting her with what could be her next favorite book. So I’ve hand-picked 20 books with every mom in mind that would make for great Mother’s Day presents.

1. Big Little Lies, Liane Moriarty
Berkley Books

Why this book: I own an actual, physical copy of this book, though I’ve yet to read Big Little Lies myself. However, after watching the series this year, I can only imagine the book being just as addictive and enthralling as its small screen remake. This book is perfect for any mom who loves a good mystery, or stories about complex and hilariously charming women…who may or may not double as deviants. (She’ll have to read to find out!)

About the book: A murder…A tragic accident…Or just parents behaving badly? What’s indisputable is that someone is dead.

Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny, biting, and passionate; she remembers everything and forgives no one. Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare but she is paying a price for the illusion of perfection. New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for a nanny. She comes with a mysterious past and a sadness beyond her years. These three women are at different crossroads, but they will all wind up in the same shocking place.
