Follow Friday #17 and TGIF #2

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

A: I really like the mother daughter relationship in Unearthly series by Cynthia Hand. This series shows a really close relationship still with its ups and downs. It felt realistic to me, kind of like my relationship with my daughter.

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

I really like the supporting character Jace in Stray by Rachel Vincent. He is hot, sarcastic, and sweet. I also like Scarlet in All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin. She is just Kooky and Original. 

Stray (Shifters, #1)All These Things I've Done (Birthright, #1)

Whats your answer?

Weekly Wrap Up: 



  1. I haven't read either of the books you mentioned - but I like to see some parental presence in YA books - a lot of the ones I've read, the moms/ dads are practically non-existent.

    And I just finished The Girl of Fire and Thorns, so I'm off the check out your review!

  2. I have read any of the books you discussed today, but they are all on my wishlist or in my TBR tower. I'll get to them one day. I'm particularly intrigued by the Unearthly mother/daughter relationship...sounds amazing! Thanks for sharing.
