Books about the Home Front

Happier at Home, Book Cover

Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin is part memoir, part philosophy, and part experimentation as Rubin takes a year to make her home a happier one.  A positive book with great suggestions!





I am a Mother, Book Cover

When someone asks what you do and the response is “I’m just a mother”, then this book might shift the thinking a bit and take the ‘just’ right out of the answer.  Be inspired by I Am a Mother by Jane Clayson Johnson.




Fiction for Mom

The Snow Child, Book Cover

Set in the breathtaking Alaskan wilderness, first-time novelist Eowyn Ivey will enchant readers with her artistic and vivid prose in The Snow Child.  If your mother has a fondness for fairy tales, this might be a book for her.





Dancing to the Flute, Book Cover

Send your mom on a trip to India!  Dancing to the Flute by Manisha Jolie Amin is a beautiful tale full of music and life that could be described as being a mix of August Rush and Karate Kid set in India.





The Whistling Season, Book Cover

If your mom is a historical fiction fan, then CBR recommends The Whistling Season by Ivan Doig.  The story is delightful and captivating, but the writing is absolutely stunning.





For a Philosophical Read

The Anatomy of Peace, Book Cover

The Anatomy of Peace  by the Arbinger Institute is one of those life-changing books everyone should read.  It is a self-help book in a novel format.

An accountant and CPA by profession, I found myself a book reviewer for Squeaky Clean Reads by happenstance. When the opportunity came to transform that website into Compass Book Ratings, I was excited to seize it and meld my business background with my love of books. As the mother of three teenage sons, I have read a large number of children and young adult books and I believe that there is great value in a content review service. As much as we would love to read everything our children read, there just isn’t enough time. I also appreciate being able to select books for myself that are really worth my precious and limited reading time. I believe there is a book out there for everyone–they just have to find it!
