Top Fictional Mothers – #MothersDay

mum

Today in the UK, it is Mother’s Day, so I’ve spent the day showering my mother in gifts and giving her the special treatment because she is truly wonderful and deserves it. But this then got me thinking about a few of my favourite fictional mums and I thought I would share a few of them with you. Feel free to leave a comment letting us know who your favourite fictional mums are!

  1. Mrs Wealsly in Harry Potter – She’s the mother of seven pretty fantastic children, surrogate mother to Harry, and a member of the Order of the Phoenix, Mrs Weasley is tough, loving, and fiercely protective. It’s basically impossible not to love her.
  2. Mrs Lancaster in The Fault in our Stars – Despite my views of this book, Hazel’s mum definitely deserves a place on this list due to everything she does for her daughter, she’s always there for her and makes every day and celebration special.
  3. Natalie Prior in Divergent – I don’t want to spoil it for those who haven’t read this series yet but although she many not look like much she’s certainly a strong woman who will do anything to protect her family.
  4. Jocelyn Fray in The Mortal Instruments – I’ve seen mixed feelings about Jocelyn as a mother as she did block Clary’s memories but she did it to protect her child and most of her actions and decisions are made to protect Clary, so I think she deserves a place on the list!
  5. Miss Honey in Matilda – She is the only adult to see Matilda’s true potential, nurturing her when no one else will. She is patient and caring, as any parent should be, urging Matilda to never stop learning or dreaming. Most importantly, she also encourages Matilda’s fledgeling love of books, and for that alone, I felt that Miss Honey deserved a place on the list.
  6. Elizabeth in Life on the Refrigerator Door – If you haven’t read this book then seriously stop what you’re doing and go and pick it up. This short novel is written in notes left on the refrigerator door and will take you on a journey of emotion. Clare’s mother does everything for her despite her situation and the relationship between them is beautiful even though it may not seem like it in the beginning.

Top 5 Fictional Couples

Valentines Day is upon us once again and it’s time to think about to whom you’re going to profess your undying love for. Last year, we listed our top 5 fictional boyfriends which can be found here, but this year we thought we would list our favourite fictional couples!

Amy:

Any couple from ‘Lunar Chronicles’ – I swear every relationship in this series is perfect and that each couple were made for each other! If I had to pick a favourite it would have to be Thorne and Cress, as they are both really cute and Cress always saw the good and believed in Thorne even when he didn’t; she changed him.

Any couple from the ‘Throne of Glass’ Series Queen of Shadows left me with so many new and exciting ships!!! I wasn’t totally with the whole Rowena ship but after this book I am the captain of that ship and 100% supporting it. Two other ships that were hinted in the book, were between Lysandra and Aedion and between Manon and Dorian! However it is the relationship with Chaol and Nesryn, I’m a little unsure of and it’s probably because I have a huge fictional crush on Chaol and I think me and him would be a way better ship! 

Anna and St Clair from ‘Anna and the French Kiss – They are just so cute and have the perfect relationship! I’m very jealous!

Jase and Sam from ‘My Life Next Door’ -Again another perfect relationship which developed hugely throughout the book. Jase changed and help bring Sam out of her shell so she could really experience life! The conversation and banter between them also never failed to make me laugh!

Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett from ‘Pride and Prejudice’ – I don’t think, this needs a explanation.

Eleanor:

The Jessa/Wessa love triangle from ‘The Infernal Devices’ – When reading these books I could never decide who would be better for Tessa as both boys were equally gorgeous, committed and head over heels in love with Tessa, what more can a girl as for?!? Of course you all know I have a soft spot for Will Herondale but that is mainly because he loves books and is tall with dark hair and dreamy blue eyes… which happens to be exactly my type!

Eleanor and Park from ‘Eleanor and Park’ – This relationship is just adorable! What I love about this was that it was unexpected from both sides and shows that love really works in mysterious ways! It was also a somewhat forbidden love story which everyone is a sucker for.

Rosie and Alex from ‘Love, Rosie (Where Rainbows End)’ – This was a book full of mistakes I hope I will never make, all the almosts and not quites are agonizing and it is blindingly obvious that these two were meant to be together but circumstances meant they were constantly being pulled apart! Although it does mean that the end is even more satisfying!

Katniss and Peeta from ‘The Hunger Games’ – I don’t think this needs much explaining, they’re perfect together and I bet their children are adorable! They’ve both been through a lot and deserve to be together!

Penny and Noah from ‘Girl Online’ – I love this relationship mainly because I’m jealous of Penny… I mean who wouldn’t want to date a rock star (Shawn Mendes or James McVey to name but a few)
