Here are ten books that are better than gifting mum another mug this Mother’s Day.

Whether you have an adventurous mum, a dog-loving mum, a fashionable mum, or a Netflix mum, the Books with Heart team has you covered this holiday. What mum do you have?

  • For the Fashionable Mums - The Paris Secret

    Do you have a mum who loves fashion…? Then we have the perfect book for her that combines a whole wardrobe of Dior gowns, a secret kept for sixty-five years, and the three women bound forever by war. Not to mention, it’s from the New York Times bestselling author of THE FRENCH PHOTOGRAPHER! THE PARIS SECRET is an unforgettable story about the lengths people go to protect one another, and a love that, despite everything, lasts a lifetime. Highly recommended for those fashion-loving mums!

  • For the Dog-Loving Mums - A Dog Called Harry

    Have a mum who might love her dog more than you? Then A DOG CALLED HARRY is a moving memoir of a dog who helped a broken woman love life again. Widowed and diagnosed with cancer, Jill Baker was at her lowest ebb in life. That’s when a crazy, howling, snoring, digging, chewing, barking orange pup arrived. Turns out Harry and Jill were made to be together. They are an unlikely duo. Jill is quiet, Harry is loud as hell. Jill meticulously plans the day while Harry says let's wing it. She sips pinot while he's an espresso martini guy. Highly recommended for any dog-loving mums!

  • For the Mr-Darcy-Loving Mums - The Jane Austen Society

    Do you have a mum who has watched 'Pride and Prejudice' a hundred times? Then gift her THE JANE AUSTEN SOCIETY this Mother’s Day. In this uplifting read, eight villagers are brought together by their love for the famous author's novels, to create JANE AUSTEN SOCIETY. As new friendships form and the pain of the past begins to heal, surely they can find a way to preserve Austen's legacy before it is too late? Highly recommended for any mums who consume Regency novels like wine!

  • For the Adventurous Mums - The Sisters of Auschwitz

    Does your mum like reading books with good doses of risk and bravery? Then we’d have to recommend THE SISTERS OF AUSCHWITZ. It’s the life-affirming story of two sisters’ resistance in the heart of Nazi territory. A hugely compelling portrayal of courage, treason and human resilience—and a great read for those who love a tale of female-bravery.

  • For the Pass-Me-Another-Tissue Mums - The River Home

    Do you have a mum who has to pack tissues when you go to the movies? Well then, THE RIVER HOME by bestselling author, Hannah Richell, is a guaranteed tear-jerker! This is a wise and emotionally powerful story of a broken family and the courage it takes to heal. Make sure to gift some tissues with it too!

  • For the Grand‘mums’ - The Switch

    Need to gift your grandma something this Mother’s Day.? Then THE SWITCH is a perfect fit. Eileen is sick of being 79. Leena's tired of life in her twenties. Maybe it's time they swapped places... A beautiful and uplifting story that shows age is merely a number. Switch it up for Grandma this year!

  • For the Cooking Mums - Quick and Delicious

    If you have a mum who loves to cook, then we have a tried-and-tested gift that may just benefit you too at family dinners. GORDON RAMSAY QUICK AND DELICIOUS has over 100 recipes that take 30 minutes or less, and use readily available ingredients that are transformed into something special with Gordon's expertise. You may just get some chef-quality dinners the next time you visit your mum.

  • For the Kids-at-Heart Mums - Nevermoor

    Do you find your mum reading the latest kids book rather than the new Michael Robotham thriller? NEVERMOOR is for the mums who are kids at heart. It’s a breathtaking, enchanting series by debut Australian author Jessica Townsend, about a cursed girl who escapes death and finds herself in a magical world - but is then tested beyond her wildest imagination. You’re never too old for some magical amusement in your life!

  • For the Always-Positive Mums - On Hope

    Do you have a mum who is always positive, even (annoyingly) in the worst of circumstances? Then gift her some hope this Mother’s Day. ON HOPE is how ordinary people can change the world and help save the planet. One of the lead organisers of the Australian Climate strike, 17-year-old Daisy Jeffrey shows how ordinary people are fighting back and demanding we address climate change. Gift-wrapping some hope for your mum will be sure to go down positively!

  • For the Netflix Mums - The Witcher

    Do you have a mum who is up-to-date with binging all the new Netflix hits? Then perhaps she wants to read the book, after watching the adaption (and Henry Cavill)! Then gift your mum Geralt (unfortunately not Henry Cavill) this Mother’s Day: A witcher, a brilliant fighter and a merciless assassin. Yet he is no ordinary murderer: his targets are the multifarious monsters and vile fiends that ravage the land and attack the innocent. He roams the country seeking assignments, but gradually comes to realise that while some of his quarry are unremittingly vile, others are the victims of sin, evil or simple naivety. A perfect gift for the Netflix Mums.
