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.

Lia and Zane

‘Lia can hear the future, much in the way she hears the call of Draumr. And in that future, she realizes that the diamond—along with the fate of the drákon—rests in the hands of a human man, one who straddles two worlds.’

Lia Langford and Zane, where to start? Where they come from? Yes, I think that should be a good start.

Please be aware that they will be spoilers here if you don’t know the characters already, go to the bottom of the post, where I will leave you a link to either a review of the book where they came from or to an outside source so you can buy it, read the book, and then come back here to chat or read about these two.

Spoilers ahead!

List of Favourite Characters and Books

There are times when my feelings are not that this book is better than the other, I am mostly inclined to believe that all books have their own little things, different details that make them unique and I do not like comparing them to each other.

The same happens with the characters, specially the male characters clearly, which is why I decided to compile them all up in one place, though it has been sometime since I last read the books, the characters still continue to be a presence. Here is a list of my top characters and books but it is not yet complete.
