Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Favorite Moms in Literature


(Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish)

All covers are from Goodreads!


Doter- Princess Academy by Shannon Hale

Angeline Fowl- Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer


“There’s no video network in Iceland. I should have checked.”

“Hmm,” Said his mother, and Artemis knew that syllable well. It meant that she suspected him of something, but didn’t know what exactly.

“So you are in Iceland?”

Artemis was glad there was no video feed, as it was more difficult to lie face-to-face.

Of course I am. Why do you ask?”

“I ask because the GPS puts you in the North Atlantic Ocean”

Artemis frowned. His mother had insisted on a GPS function on the phone if she were to allow him to go off alone.

“That’s probably just a bug in the program,” said Artemis as he quickly tapped into the GPS application and manually set his location to Reykjavik. “Sometimes the locater is a little off. Give it another try.”

Silence for a moment, but for the typing of keys, then another hmmm.

“I suppose it’s redundant to ask whether or not you’re up to something? Artemis Fowl is always up to something.”

-Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex by Eoin Colfer


Sally Jackson- Percy Jackson The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

Book22.jpg I just found their relationship so amazing. How Sally would do almost anything to keep Percy safe, but loving him too much to part with her son.


Molly Weasley- The Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling

You not love Molly?


Thunderheart- Wolves of The Beyond: Lone Wolf by Kathryn Lasky

Laura Hardy- The Hardy Boys series by Franklin W. Dixon



Mrs. McLaughlin- My Friend Flicka by Mary O’Hare



Mrs. Mullet- A Summer Secret by Kathleen Fuller



Mrs, Ogden- The Trouble with Tuck by Theodore Taylor



Mama Ya-Ya- Ninth Ward by Jewell Parker Rhodes

book30.jpg Although she isn’t Lanesha’s (God, I love that name!) real mother, Mama Ya-Ya raised her.

Well, that was fun! Who are your favorite mothers in literature?
