Vigilante by Kady Cross

This is a new book I have read. Magda puts herself in some potentially dangerous situations and potential trouble with the police but all for an amazing cause. While her mother does not know any of this she still supports Magda while providing a sounding board for her daughter.

 

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

Sally Jackson is the human mother of Percy who cares immensely for her son and ensures his safety in his formative years. Their relationship is caring and loving.

 

Confess by Colleen Hoover

 

If you don’t want a spoiler for this book, skip over this one now. I warned you.

CONFESS

Aubrey is a mother and a teenage one at that. Her son is being raised by his grandmother and Aubrey bends over backwards to ensure he is well and cared for and regain custody rights.

 

The Liar by Nora Roberts

When Shelby Foxworth finds out her husband has lied to her and put her and her child in danger, Shelby starts a new life far away to ensure the safety of her child. She shows care and affection for her child.

 

Slammed by Colleen Hoover

Layken’s mother in this book is a rock. I absolutely love her. The amount of extraordinarily tough things that are in this book would cause almost anyone to break. She is there for her children and supportive even when the devastating happens.

 

Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh

Tamsyn is a minor character in the book. She is the pack healer and the predominant matriarch of the pack. She has a set of rambunctious twin boys who she obviously loves. Not to mention she takes in the other members of the pack to care for. She is a loving person and a fore of nature.

 

 

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Jocelyn Fray does everything she can to protect her daughter. Whether it was right or wrong she had the best interests of her daughter at heart and was a caring mother.

The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

UPSIDE OF UNREQUITED

The protagonist in this book has two moms. I feel this is really great representation of parenting in literature. Not to mention the moms are fabulous, they are hardworking and kind-hearted.

 

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

the-hate-u-give

I’m still putting my thoughts together for the review of this book, but one thing I can say about it is that this book has parents who are amazing. Her mother supports her and she describes her parents as her OTP… aww!

 

Harry Potter Series by J.K Rowling 

harry

Molly Weasley is probably the first amazing fiction mother I have ever read about. The utter chaos of her house is amazing but the unconditional love and fierce loyalty Molly has for her children (biological or not) makes her the top fictional mother.
