Mother’s Day is one week away! In honor of that, here are some books recommended by my mother.
(Contains affiliate links)
Ice Limit by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child
When I told my mom I was going to write the post, her first reaction was “It better contain Ice Limit!” So here it is as first. 🙂 It is marked as a thriller or an adventure novel, and, although I haven’t read it, it is definitely on my TBR!
Extra Virginity by Tom Mueller
Although the title sounds scandalous, this book is actually about olive oil. Apparently it is quite fascinating, and it’s another one I plan on picking up.
Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea by Gary Kinder
I have read this one and it was fascinating! It is about retrieving a sunken ship (the richest in the world, according to the book’s tagline), and all the different technological advances were required to make it happen. It’s a lot more interesting that I’m making it sound, I promise. 🙂
Beautiful Cruel Country by Eva Antonia Wilber-Cruce
My mom loves southwest history (which is great, considering we live there), and no doubt she enjoys this book for that reason.
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
This book covers the story of the life (and continued presence) of Henrietta Lacks. While she died over 50 years ago, her cells are still around and have been essential in many modern medical advances.
Paradox of Choice by Barry Schwartz
This is another non-fiction that investigates the ramifications of having the ability to choose. Is it a good thing? How does it tie into freedom and our well-being?
All of the above (except the one’s I’ve read) are definitely on my TBR. Are you adding any of them to yours as well? What books would your mom recommend?
[…] She still recommends books for me to read. I wrote an entire post about it, which you can find here. […]
