Mother’s Day is such a fun-filled
day, but having a blast with your leading lady is important all year round.
That’s why we’re obsessed with these books. They’re perf to read with your mom
not only on Mom’s Day, but on the other 364 days of the year, too. Like your
own little mother-daughter book club.
The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler
Neighbors Emma and Josh used
to be BFFs—until things completely fell apart. But there’s a chance they could
be brought back together by, what else? The Internet. Your mom will LOL at the
mentions of AOL (a huge online software company from the 90s and early 00s) and
you’ll be able to seriously relate to all things Facebook in his novel that
brings two seemingly separate digital worlds together.

Between the Lines by Jodi Pucoult & Samantha Van Leer
With this book, you and your
mom will bond over every single fairy tale aspect—just like the bedtime stories
she use to read you when you were a kid. The novel follows Delilah and her
quest to free her literary love. You and mom will be turning page after page
once you start this book, and, fun fact: it was even written by a mother
daughter pair—how perf!
Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern
If you’re a fan of The Fault In Our Stars then you and your
mom will want to read this novel together. It tells the tale of a teen girl
with cerebral palsy who hires a fellow student with OCD to assist her in her
final year of high school. It’s mature enough for mom to love and the
unexpected bond between the main characters will make you see others in a whole

Sixteen by Emily
What makes this novel so
special is that it’s written by a teenage girl just like you. That’s right,
Emilly Rachelle is an ordinary girl who just so happened to publish a book. Sixteen is written in a super unique way
that your mom will definitely appreciate. The narrator is Nikki, a sixteen-year-old
girl, who is also a mother. No, no. This isn’t an episode of Teen Mom. The story actually jumps back
and fourth from 1994, where teenage Nikki narrates, and 2014, where Nikki is
now a mother (and goes by Nicole). Your mom will sympathize with the struggles
of being a teenager and a mom while you will learn a lot from the eye opening
and inciting storyline about teenage love.
45 Pounds (More or Less) by Kelly Barson
This book follows Ann in the
weeks before her Aunt Jackie’s wedding. Ann is meant to be a bridesmaid and has
decided that in order to do so she must drop 45 pounds (more or less). Ann’s
awkwardness will fill both you and your mom with empathy and the book will make
you realize that no matter how at ease an individual may seem, they’re probably
hiding insecurities underneath the facade. No matter how young or old you are, 45 Pounds (More or Less) serves as a reminder
that we’re all perfect just the way we are.

Megan’s Way by Melissa
We all know that sassy
saying, “Save the drama for you mama,” but it can definitely be applied to this
novel. Megan is a single mother who must deal with the reality that her cancer
has returned. But she’s not exactly sure how to break the news to her daughter
Olivia. In the midst of all the chaos, Megan ends up pushing Olivia away, and she
goes a little bit crazy for her mother’s attention. The tested relationships,
as well as friendships, in this book will strengthen the already awesome bond
you and your mom have.
