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?
The only person I can really think of at the moment is Molly Weasley and her relationship with all her children. She was there for all of them at one point or another and I really enjoyed some of the syaing she would come out with, she was strict yet she loved each of them in their own little way.
Also I found the relationship between Day and his mother touching in Legend, though she doesn't even know he is alive he does so much for her and his family. Even when she found out who he really was she still loved him just as much.
I don't think in many YA book the relationship with the parents is clear, you never really seem to see them much, it's always about the child going off and doing what they want. I really want more books that focus on the relationship between parents and children, I think it is an important role.
I am also taing part in TGIF hosted by GReads.
Supporting Characters: We tend to gush over those main characters the most, but what about those supporting roles? Who are some of your favorites?
Some of my favourite characters ever have been supporting characters. Here are just a few:
Dr. Watson He is Holmes epic companion and someone who I admire, he put up with a lot through out the books but never let it interfere with his relationship. He is witty and charming and has many ideas of his own yet always puts Holmes first.
Chuck from The Maze Runner is another stand out character, I loved the way he was funny and could brighten up the mood even when something terrible was happening. He was the kind of character that everyone wants as a friend, he makes everyone feel welcome and can read a lot of peoples emotions which means he can interact with them a lot better.
