Feature and Follow Friday :)



Yay, it's another Friday. And Saturday happens to be the day I finally get to celebrate my birthday.
Let's do the basics: Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, and is ALL about some blogosphere love. So follow, follow, follow, and don't forget to leave your links so I can follow you all right back!

This week's question:

Q: This Sunday in the U.S. is Mother’s Day, in celebration, what are some of your favorite books with strong mother/child relationships?

A. The question actually got me thinking: there are so few YA books with parent-child relationships that are actually healthy! What comes immediately to mind is the Anna Dressed in Blood series: I thought Cas and his Mom were cool, there was just something about the kitchen witch and her relationship with her son that made me fall in love with the pair of them. It was one of the few books that didn't relegate the Mom to a cameo kind of role.
Then, of course, Lily Potter. I mean, she's dead at the beginning of the series, but she means so much to Harry, and she is like the epitome of maternal love. I always loved Lily :)

Comments

  1. I love the scene in Deathly Hallows when Lily tells Harry how brave he's been. That line makes me teary-eyed every time I read it.

  2. Good point about Cas and his mom. She had a few naive moments, but she wasn't just a placeholder where a character should be.

  3. I love Anna Dressed In Blood and am super excited for Girl of Nightmares. And Harry Potter is classic. Lily is amazing.

  4. I definitely think Lilly still counts! I haven't read Anna Dressed in Blood (Still only in Hardback in the UK, and therefore way too expensive!) but hopefully I will soon!

    Great picks!
