Feature & Follow Friday (11th May)

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by the wonderful Parajunkee & Alison Can Read

This weeks featured blogs: The Fake Steph Dot Com and Books Galore

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

It is Mother’s Day here in Australia on Sunday as well and I can’t wait to spend the day being pampered by my amazing children.

The first mother/daughter relationship which popped to mind was Brenna Blixen and her mother from Liz Reinhardt’s Brenna Blixen series. Although her mother was a tad over protective, their close bond and their love was obvious.

Two Contemporary romance series I have read which both show a close mother/child-ren relationship were the Kowalski Family by Shannon Stacey & also the Chase Brothers by Lauren Dane, the mothers in these books are absolutely wonderful and so supportive of each of their children, I loved the relationship they shared.

Happy Mothers Day!!

  4. Haven't heard of these books either. But it's good to see some good parenting relationships in books! Usually the parents are all absent or bad parents that shape the main character into who they are.

    Here's my Friday Hops
