Looking for a present to give this Mother’s Day, or wanting to give your family a none-too-subtle hint?
Move over chocolates and flowers, apparently, research confirms over 83 per cent of women say they love to read. What’s more, over two-thirds of us like receiving books as presents – no argument out of me!
We decided to go to our partners at Dymocks, Australia’s leading bookseller, to get an idea of what is on the “must have” list for this Mother’s Day.
The most anticipated novel of 2017 is certainly Into the Water by Paula Hawkins, author of Girl on the Train. Her new book is an addictive novel about and a family drowning in secrets, and just how slippery the truth can be.
The Starts at 60 review of Into the Water will be published this Wednesday. Reviewer Karen Jones loves it!
If you want something to make Mum laugh, or if you’ve forgotten to give mum a present, Enid Blyton can help you out with the parody novel Five Forget Mother’s Day, the latest instalment in the hilarious Famous Five for Grown-Ups series, which takes our childhood heroes into the “baffling adult world”.
If you’re looking to spoil mum with a special Mother’s Day meal, there’s plenty of inspiration in these tasty new cookbooks. For mums who love nostalgia food, give them a culinary stroll down memory lane with the Australian Women’s Weekly Retro: The Complete Collection.
