Have you gotten a look at the calendar? Mother's Day is coming up fast! And you haven't bought a gift yet, have you? Don't worry; we've got your back.
The thing is, flowers are just going to get knocked over by the cat. Chocolate is just going to be eaten by the kids. But books, ah, books give her an excuse to go hide in the bathtub with a lot of bubbles and laugh her way through the pages. And have we got a list that's just made for Mother's Day!
More from The Stir: 10 Priceless Mother's Day Gifts You'll Probably Never Receive
We take motherhood and writing seriously here at The Stir, which is why you shouldn't be surprised at the crazy number of authors in our ranks. Does your mom want funny? We've got it. Sexy? Got that too. And there's even some celebrity in here!

Jenny Lawson doesn't just dish up pee-your-pants kind of funny parenting tips here at The Stir (seriously, moms, you must get around to those pelvic floor exercises the OB was yammering on about after delivery if you want to read anything she wrote). The woman better known on the interwebs as The Bloggess now has her very own memoir that she swears is true ... well, mostly.
Traipsing through memories of her rather unconventional childhood -- did your dad make hand puppets out of dead animals? Didn't think so -- Lawson's Let's Pretend This Never Happened makes you wish the crazy happenings in her life were happening in yours. Except maybe without the creepy puppets.
