Mother’s Day is just around the corner. And aside from flowers and chocolates, what should we be giving Mom? Patrik Henry Bass, Takeaway contributor and senior editor at Essence magazine has compiled a list of books to say "thank you for not being like Mommy Dearest." Patrik calls his list “an ode to some of the moms we’re thankful we never had.”

Patrik's suggested Mother's Day gift list:

  • Aurora Greenway TERMS OF ENDEARMENT

  • Ingrid Magnussen WHITE OLEANDER
  • Lila Wingo Newbury THE PRINCE OF TIDES
  • Ida Farange WHAT MAISIE KNEW
