Alison Can Read Feature & FollowIt’s Feature & Follow Friday! This is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Every week, we post our answers to a weekly question, and get to meet & follow other book bloggers!

This week’s question is: Happy Mother’s Day! Who is your favorite mom from fiction?

About 5 seconds went by after I read this question, where I barely had time to think – moms?! what books have I read where the moms weren’t actually part of the issue – or dead (and, thus, part of the issue)…? And then BAM. Obviously there’s Mrs. Weasley, as Alison pointed out. But the other mom who popped straight into my mind was… Sally Jackson from the Percy Jackson series. She has got to be one of the sweetest, strongest, most supportive moms out there. And she totally ships Percabeth. And she makes blue waffles. What’s not to love?! ;)

Who are your favorite moms in fiction?

  1. Good Choice ( well I actually havent read Percy Jackson) But she is a good mom in the movie :D I must get my hands on that book to read as well as harry potter. I really dont read any books that have a main mom they focus on or who really stands out. Check out My FF

  2. I like Mrs. Prior from Divergent and Mrs. March from Little Women. It is hard to think of many parents in fiction who are actively present!

  3. Popular answers this week! But with so few great moms to choose from, I’m not surprised. I almost put Mrs. Weasley myself until my brain decided to look at the question differently. But really, where are all the good parents at?!

    • Right?! It’s so sad that parents are consistently portrayed as part of the protagonist’s obstacle, whether they’re actively antagonistic to their kids, or out of the picture in some way (dead/abandoned them/etc). Why can’t parents be awesome – or at least, you know, normal? I feel like most real parents are pretty reasonable people, lol.
