6 Books to Pair With a Mom Water

Motherhood is a form of self-sacrifice. Oftentimes, that sacrifice is the TV at night.


We sacrifice our HGTV home design show to the football game, our Hallmark movie for Marvel, and, with that, our wind-down time to the back of our eyelids.


That treasured hour before bed where we just relax is coveted and important. Many of us women turn to a book.


Lost in the pages of Colleen Hoover, Elizabeth Gilbert, or J.K. Rowling (to name a few) we finally destress. To add to the bliss, we suggest pairing with a Mom Water.

6 Books to Pair With a Mom Water

1. Julie – Daisy Jones & The Six

Sipping on a Passionfruit Julie Mom Water, coupled by the passion of Daisy in Daisy Jones & The Six, will transport a gal from her couch to L.A. in the 70s. This book tells the story of a teenage rockstar whose life gets thrown into a whirlwind when she pairs with the band The Six. Their success is undeniable – until it is halted.


Written like a celebrity memoir, this story will rev up the hippie that is in every Julie drinker. They may look chill on the outside, but they are wild-at-heart.

2. Linda - Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus

Listen, Linda is a boss-woman, don’t get us wrong, but she is a sucker for a juicy romance novel. Lessons in Chemistry highlights Elizabeth Zott’s fight as a chemist in such a male-dominated industry. That is, until she meets Calvin Evans, the Nobel-prize winning genius who sees her for who she is – and they find true chemistry.

Much like science, things can go wrong. Elizabeth finds herself years later a single mother starring in a cooking show, Supper at Six, where she is not only changing people’s dinner recipes, but the status quo. Both gushy lovers and “I-Don’t-Need-No-Man” women will eat this book up – and wash it down with a Linda.

3. Sandy – Barefoot by Elin Hilderbrand

Sandy is the Mom Water you grab when you’re looking for an escape. Most often, it is to the beach. For the main characters of Barefoot, Vicki, Brenda, and Melanie – the beach is exactly what they needed. Each dealing with a separate struggle: serious illness, loss of job, infidelity in their marriage, and fertility trials, the trio set off for Nantucket.

There, they are introduced to Josh Flynn, who integrates the four lives together in ways they couldn’t have imagined. Titled Barefoot, it seems fitting to devour this book in a beach chair with a Sandy.

4. Karen – Spare by Prince Harry

Everybody has their opinion on Prince Harry and Megan Markle – especially Karens. For the Karen-drinkers who are looking for the full scoop on this scandal, Spare is the book for you.


Prince Harry unveils the story of his life in gruesome detail – holding nothing back about his mother’s death, the press, and the life of a royal. Tearing through the pages of this book is like getting to know a friend, better yet, a celebrity. It is up for debate whether you will finish your Karen or the book first. Plus, it can’t hurt to look at Harry’s face on the cover.

5. Susan – The Stories We Tell by Joanna Gaines

Susan-drinkers are sweethearts, so it seems fitting that they would turn to The Stories We Tell to hear from America’s sweetheart, Joanna Gaines. In reading her raw and honest stories, it unpacks an untold truth: we all have stories to tell, and it is in cracking them open that we piece ourselves back together.


As readers learn more about Joanna, they, in turn, learn about themselves. Paired with a Strawberry Kiwi Susan, it will feel like you are on the porch of Joanna’s farm, sharing stories with a friend.

6. Nancy – Maame by Jessica George

The same eye attracted by Nancy’s boldness will love Maame, the colorful story of a brave young woman, Maddie, who grew up raising her father with Parkinson’s. When the time comes for her to embark on her own life as a late bloomer, readers join alongside her as she learns independence and what it truly means to “belong.”

With Maame in one hand and Nancy in another, you will be the brightest girl in the room (both literally and figuratively).
