Mothers in Books and Other Media

“She held the food out to me, her face all soft and pleading. I don’t know how she did it, because she didn’t look older than her mid-twenties, and she was bone pale, too, but something about her expression suddenly reminded me of my mom.”

Hello, dearies! 👩‍👧

Happy Mother’s Day! 🌻

Today we celebrate the loving mothers we want as our or we simply admire. I’m diving right in.

Mothers in Books

Jocelyn Fairchild

I mean, she’s not my first choice of mothers, but it cannot be denied how fiercely she wanted to protect her daughter from Valentine and all he did.

Celíne Herondale née Montclaire

Now, hear me out, I know that you see Celíne and don’t think much of her, but after I read The Wicked Ones, I was impressed by her story, which is what Cassandra Clare usually does, she can make you change your mind about a character with one short novel.

Molly Weasley

Do I need to say more? I wish she would adopt me.

Another Book Female Lead

I love how badass she is, the female lead in Another from the Voyeur Series, I would say more, but I’ll leave it for you to read and see. If you like romance/adult books that is.

Claire Fraser

She’s a fighter.

Esme Cullen

Because I want Esme to adopt me too.

Mothers in TV Shows

Lorelai Gilmore

Only because she’s fun and awesome, that’s a good enough reason.

Piper Halliwell

Fierce, protective, a witch, and a warrior. Piper from Charmed has it all.

And that’s it for today’s special, sorry it’s such a short one, but it has been a difficult week for me.

Oh, and the best mom of them all is my mom. 🌷

Thank you for reading, dearies! I hope to bring more content to you soon. Have a nice Sunday!

Happy reading! 🎀

Victoria

‘Together with Victoria, a girl he has just met, he will start a fight of unexpected proportions. Their fate will be inexorably linked to the Resistance, a small group fighting for the freedom of a world called Idhún. Will he be able to restore the lost peace?’

Book: The Idhún Chronicles (Memorias de Idhún)

Main Character: Yes

Powers: Yes

Author of the Book: Laura Gallego

Hello there, dearies!

I had decided not to do one on Victoria from The Idhún Chronicles, but then I saw that this question existed: in the books the idhun chronicles is victoria in love with jack.

No, I’m not one to give spoilers at all, but I feel like I have to answer some doubts since I am basically an encyclopedia about Idhún. I do not get tired of talking about these books, thinking about what happened in them or re-reading them, and I have lost count of the times that I had picked up one of these books, opened it to any page and read from there.

Manga Characters Guaranteed to Deliver a Heartthrob

Who is your favourite male character in a Manga? Check out some of mine. 💓

Hello, dearies!

With Valentine’s day coming closer, I decided to do a special on characters, but not any male characters but the ones from Manga because they made your heartthrob the most. At least in this particular case, with these specific characters. 💓

Now, I say it’s from any genre, but the common denominator is some kind of romance.

As of the next lines, pardon my fangirling all over the place. Let’s begin!

Alice Cullen

“No one dressed by me ever looks like an idiot.”

First Appearance: Twilight

Last Appearance: Breaking Dawn

Hello, dearies! Happy Halloween 2021! 🎃🧛

I thought to stop by with a quick appreciation for a character that pretty much makes the whole Twilight series better. Alice Cullen, yes! That’s about all I need to say. LOL. Not really, I’m just going to fangirl for a little a bit and then we can move on.

Spoiler Alert, if you are not familiar with Twilight or the other books in the saga.

Couples to Idealise 💞

Valentine’s Day is coming up, so let’s talk about all those couples that we (Me) love and could idealise from books, and boy, do I have a bunch, I will try to keep it short.

That day when people starts sending hearts and flowers, and gifts chocolates is coming up, what is it called again? Oh, yeah! Valentine’s Day, so let’s talk about all those couples that we (Me) love and could idealise from books, and boy, do I have a bunch, I will try to keep it short. 

If you ever read any of the books I’m about to mention and know these couples then you are in for a treat and would love to have a relationship like these, though most did not start out good, they end up with a happy tone, so you might find some spoilers. Warning set.

Izzy Lightwood

“I’m pure at heart.”
Total Badass chick and Shadowhunter warrior.

Total Badass chick and Shadowhunter warrior.

Names: Isabelle Lightwood. Izzy. Iz. 

Will not talk about Emeurade Toubia, awesome girl who portrayed her on Shadowhunters TV, mostly because Izzy’s story on the show was so completely weird, and twisted at various points, they changed the character.

But in the books? Warrior. A great role-model. Funny. Compassionate. Passionate. Hot. I mean, Izzy is one of the first characters you fall for in the books, even before, Alec and Jace, or Clary, who I didn’t like very much at first.

Jack

Jack, he is the first character you meet in the story and well, you want to smack him over the head, for real, he got on my nerves for many chapters, in fact, I think I didn’t like him that much until book 2 (Triad), and by Pantheon (the third book) as I mentioned, then I said, alright Jack, you’re good.

Hello, dearies! This is Sela here, and I’m giving in, I’m dedicating one to Jack from The Idhun Chronicles because when I re-read Pantheon (the third book), I realized that he had his moments. 

And I have been asked about Victoria and Kirtash, and Jack, though I am not going to answer that spoiler-full question, but I am going to talk about Jack and some important facts from the books, so you might as well stop right now if you don’t want to know like this is my warning that there are spoilers ahead. 👀

About Christopher Herondale

“There were valuable first editions of books in the enormous library, most of them had been scribbled in by some idiot named Will H.”

World: Shadowhunters

Books: The Dark Artifices, Ghosts of the Shadow Market

Alright, I am going to do it. I have to do it. If you do not know who Christopher Herondale is, then by all means either do not read this one or read away because you want some Spoiler from The Dark Artifices and The Lost Herondale legend.

Spoilers ahead.

Simon Lewis

Well, I never thought I would do one about Simon, that’s for sure.

World: Shadowhunters

Solo books: Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy

Sorry about this but there will be Spoilers about Simon’s life if you only know his story from The Mortal Instruments.
