Follow Friday and TGIF! (5-11-12)

Happy Friday everyone! Enjoying May so far? It's cooled off here over the past few days, but I can still feel summer right around the corner. Are you all ready for Mother's Day? I just have to go and buy the things that I'm giving my mom and then I'm all set (which I know sounds like it's not done, but it pretty much is.) Now, onto the Friday fun ...

Parajunkee asks:

This Sunday in the US is Mother's Day, in celebration, what are some of your favorite books with strong mother/child relationships?

The one that comes to my mind immediately is the Weasley family from Harry Potter. Seriously, Mrs. Weasley had a special clock to keep track off everyone in her house! And who didn't love, in book number seven, when she screams, "Not my daughter, you bitch!" One of my fave book quotes!

GReads asks:

Supporting Characters: We tend to gush over those main characters the most, but what about those supporting roles? Who are some of your favorites?

Once again, my favorites are probably the ones in the Harry Potter series. They are all so rich and well developed. Another favorite of mine is Sadie in Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella.

So, which are your favorite mother/child relatioships? Favorite supporting characters? Let me know, and have a great weekend! 


  1. I absolutely love that quote by Mrs. Weasley! When I was in the theater I know my face was like, "WHAT??!"

  2. I've lost count of the number of "votes" for Mrs. Weasley. She truly is the reigning queen of all literary mothers in modern fiction.
