From grandmas we admire, to mothers who fill us with unconditional love, and sisters who encourage us at every chance, we’ve got the best YA books to show your ladies some major thanks this spring (including the best Mother’s Day gifts you’ll want to snatch up, stat!).
For Your Amazing Aunt:
Assassin Celaena gets entangled in a royal competition, battling against warriors, thieves, and fellow assassins—all of which are men. Filled with espionage, romance, and bloody battles, do your aunt a favor and get Throne of Glass into her hands immediately.
For the Grandma You’ve Always Admired:
Starr Carter’s life is upended when her childhood best friend is shot and killed by a police officer. Filled with raw emotions and relevant, heated topics like racism, police brutality, and social injustices, this is a must read for everyone, but we think your grandma will especially appreciate how Starr overcomes her struggles and finds the courage to speak up for what she believes in.
For Your Special Sister:
This classic follows the lives, struggles, and passions of the four March sisters—Jo, Beth, Amy, and Meg. Filled with sisterly love (and some tear-jerking moments), we think your sis will love this heart-filled story about family responsibilities, falling in love, and the unbreakable bonds of siblings.
For Your Wonderful Mother:
Kell is a rare magician who can travel to parallel Londons—Red, White, Grey, and once upon a time, Black. In Grey London, he runs into the stealthy, trouble-inducing Delilah Bard. Filled with action, thievery, and magic, moms across the board are sure to love this butt-kicking female lead.
For Your Awesome Niece:
Molly’s had a lot of crushes, 26 to be exact, and now her sister is in a relationship and all lovesick. But as much as Molly wants that for herself, she must overcome her fear of rejection first. Filled with those awkward high school moments and painful feelings of crushes, we think your niece (old or young) will appreciate Molly’s journey to finding love and accepting her true self.
