Psst ... Mother's Day is May 8th!

... which means you don't have a whole lot of time to find your mom—or the maternal figure in your life—the perfect gift.

Whether you're trying to out-gift your siblings or just bring a big smile to Mom's face, we have the inside scoop on what she really wants this year. Keep reading and we'll let you in on our secrets.

We've Said It Before, We'll Say It Again

Books make the perfect gift. Sure, it's not a surprising claim for a bookstore to make, but we stand by it. Why? Because no matter who you're shopping for, what their passions, interests, and hobbies may be, there are books out there that are perfectly suited to them. And you'll find them all at Books-A-Million.

For Romantic Moms

If your mom is a hopeless romantic, you'll want to check out our epic selection of love stories. Pro tip: Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series and all the irresistible romances by Colleen Hoover are part of our Buy 2, Get 3rd Free sale, while the latest book in the Outlander series, Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone, is 50% off for Millionaire's Club members! Shh ... Mom doesn't need to know her favorite gift was a major bargain. Shop our Romance collection here.

For Thrill-Seeking Moms

If suspense-packed page-turners are more Mom's speed, we've got them by the armload. Run, Rose, Run, the recently released collaboration between James Patterson and Dolly Parton, is a fast-paced story of escape and survival—and it's also 50% off for members. New titles by Harlan Coben, David Baldacci, and John Sandford will also deliver the pulse-pounding suspense she's looking for. Shop our Thriller collection here.

For Film-Buff Moms

There's nothing more exciting than when a great book hits the big (or small) screen. We can't wait for the major motion picture version of one of our favorite books in recent history, Where the Crawdads Sing. This coming-of-age tale also weaves in elements of murder mystery and ode to the natural world for a well-rounded, soulfully Southern story that's an instant classic. Right now, members get this must-read novel for 50% off! Shop our Page to Screen collection here.

For Moms Who Like to Cook

Whether your mom has James Beard-worthy kitchen skills or only wishes she did, cookbooks make great gifts. Check out some of our celebrity favorites, like Alton Brown's Good Eats: The Final Years, Shaq's Family Style, or The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Super Easy, or gift your mom with a year's worth of festive foods from social media icon Babs in Celebrate with Babs.

For Moms of Faith

The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak is another giftworthy book that's 50% off for a limited time for Millionaire's Club members. It's chock-full of lessons and insights from biblical women and explores the crucial connection between faith and family. Shop our Faithpoint collection here

What Are You Waiting for?

If we didn't cover your mom's favorite genre here—maybe she's a history buff, a horror fanatic, or the rare-but-not-unheard-of manga mom—we've got her AND you covered with the incredible selection at Books-A-Million. And with our irresistible offers helping you get the most out of every purchase, you can take care of Mother's Day and treat yourself to that new release you've been eyeing.
