If you haven’t gotten a gift for that special someone in your life in honor of Mother’s Day then have no fear! Members of the Random House team have some stellar suggestions to set your mind at ease:
Leigh Marchant, who is a big fan of Anna Quindlen, recommends her latest bestselling novel, Still Life with Bread Crumbs. She also loves and recommends Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple.
Selby McRae loves recommending books to her mother because she has explorative tastes and always has a book with her. This year, she’ll wrap two favorites that have stuck with her from the first read: Rachel Joyce’s Perfect and Elizabeth Strout’s The Burgess Boys.
Susana Zialcita is thrilled to recommend Meg Wolitzer’s The Interestings and Ruth Reichl’s Delicious for her mother this year.
Like Leigh’s mother, Max Minckler’s mother is also a fan of Anna Quindlen! She has not read Still Life with Bread Crumbs yet, though, so Max plans to wrap it up alongside Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight by Alexandra Fuller.
Rick Gingrich was excited to discover Letters from Skye by Jessica Brockmole for his mother because it’s a novel that fits the reading bill!
And for you foodies out there: Pooja Lynch’s mother recently adopted a Paleo-esque lifestyle with her daughter, so this year Pooja would like to give her Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry.
