Feature and Follow Friday #34

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee’s View and Alison at Alison Can Read. It is a great way for bloggers to make new friends and find new blogs to follow. Go to either blog, follow ALL the instructions and then add your link to the list. It’s just that easy!

This week’s question:

This Sunday in the U.S. is Mother's Day. In celebration, what are some of your favorite books with strong mother/daughter relationships?

Wow, this one is a tough question. I tend to lean toward books with flawed characters and relationships.  But I just read Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell and I loved the relationship between Chloe and her mom. Despite being a busy surgeon, she was a good mom. And Chloe also had a very strong relationship with her grandmother, a second mother figure in her life. I also think that the relationship in the Mortal Instruments books between Clary and her mother, Jocelyn, is wonderful. While her mother is very protective, she does eventually come around and build a strong, honest relationship with Clary.  Mothers come in all shapes and sizes, sometimes someone is a mother without even realizing it, like a grandmother or an aunt or even a friend. There are hundreds of books out there with wonderful mother-figures. 

So, what is your answer? Leave a link to your Feature and Follow Friday in the comment section and I will stop by!  


  1. Haven't heard of that one. I do agree about the moms coming in all different forms! One of the ones I chose was the grandmother that practically raised the main character. I like the way the two interact with one another now!
