Top Ten Tuesday| Top Moms in Literature

2015 BOOKS READ-5

This weeks Top Ten Tuesday topic hosted by Broke and Bookish is Mother’s Day Freebie. I decided that I would go with the top moms in literature. I do not have many that I could think of. It seems that so much of YA literature doesn’t include parents, which is weird when you think about it. All of these teens are just off by themselves getting into all sorts of trouble with no parental supervision.

♦ Mrs. Weasley from the Harry Potter Series by J.K Rowling – I feel like this is a given and needs nothing further.

♦ Ma Ingalls from Little House Series by Laura Ingalls Wilder – She was just the all around mom. She was always there for them and teaching them.

♦ Ms. Honey from Matilda by Roald Dahl– She always wanted the best for Matilda and was so sweet.

♦ Natalie Prior from Divergent by Veronica Roth– She risked her life for her daughter and supported her with her decisions.

♦ Lilly Potter from the Harry Potter Series by J.K Rowling – She gave up her life for her son. Although she isn’t present in the books, she is always there with Harry and helps him make it.

Ode to Mothers | Quotes

“Because I feel that in the heavens above
The angels, whispering one to another,
Can find among their burning tears of love,

Therefore, by that dear name I have long called you,
You who are more than mother unto me.”
— Edgar Allen Poe, To My Mother
