Top Ten Best Mothers In Literature

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is a Mother’s Day freebie. I decided to go with some of the best mother’s in literature…so here goes!

Marmee- Mrs March- Little Women- How can you not love her? She cares for her four girls so much and is just a wonderful human being ❤

Molly Weasley- Harry Potter– Adorable woman! I love her feisty spirit and devotion to her family.

Lily Potter- Harry Potter– We don’t read nearly enough about her, but from what we do see, we know that she and James loved Harry immensely.

Rosa Hubermann- The Book Thief– A fierce lady but definitely kind at heart.

Mother- The Railway Children- She cares for her children despite the madness going on with her husband.

Natalie Prior- Divergent– Another woman I adore. She tries to protect her children no matter what.

Rosaleen- The Secret Life of Bees– Rosaleen may not be Lily’s mother, in fact, she’s her maid, but she cares for Lily as if she was her own child.

Ma- Room– Ma does everything she can to protect Jack. She devises a plan for them to escape as she wants the best for Jack!

Marilla- Anne of Green Gables– She may not be mother to Anne by birth, but she’s a wonderful adopted mother despite a rocky start.

Romy’s mum- All The Rage– Romy’s mum and boyfriend are supportive throughout the story. I love reading about carers who are actually there for their children.

What did you pick for your Mother’s Day freebie this week? It may not be Mother’s Day in the U.K. but it’s never the wrong time to celebrate mothers!
