Fiction Books

The Dagger and the Coin series.This set of five books is great for any mom who loves sword and sorcery fantasy! It’s full of plot twists and unique characters with great world building. It’s like Game of Thrones, but less violent… AND all the books are available to read now, you don’t have to wait for the author to finish them!

On the other hand, if Mom prefers hard sci-fi, check out The Expanse! It explores science, philosophy, technology, all while having a plot that readers recommend because it’s like a cross between the fantastic technology of Star Wars and the intricate plots and believable characters of Game of Thrones!

And for any nerd mom, I highly recommend Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson. Although it’s a fiction book, Mom will learn about WWII, cryptography, computer encryption, and hacking from a cast of intriguing characters, along with lots of action!

Non Fiction Books

In the book What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions, Randall Munroe gives serious answers to silly scientific questions like, “Could you build a jetpack using downward-firing machine guns?” And “Are fire tornadoes possible?” But the answers aren’t 100% serious- he includes hilarious stick figure cartoons to help the reader laugh and understand the concepts! If you decide to get Mom the audiobook version, it’s narrated by none other than Wil Wheaton!
