Follow Friday # 7

Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee that expands your blog following by joint efforts between bloggers. This week's featured bloggers are  Books Galore   and  The Fake Steph Dot Com .

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

There are probably some books I missed out but these 3 came immediately into mind:

Weasley's Egypt family trip with me.
Where was I? Umm, I was the one who
took the picture cause nobody knew
how to work the camera except me.
1. Molly Weasley and the 7 Weasleys from the Harry Potter series  

Do I really need to explain this? Although, I love my mother dearly with all my heart, Molly is the mother I never had. She's just everything a mother should be. Need any more proof? Look at how her sons and daughter turned out to be.

2. Maggie and Clara Gardner from Unearthly series by Cynthia Hand

Maggie may be secretive about the mechanics of how the visions work, but she's always right there for Clara. Supportive and unyielding, like any mother should be.

Proud mom! 
3. Sally Jackson and Percy Jackson from the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan  

If you fell in love with a god (especially one of the 3 major gods), you would realized that although you love each other deeply, there will come a time when that god must leave you even if he does not want to. Sally realized that and as a single mother raising a demigod, she married a git of a man to protect Percy. I mean c'mon, if you marry someone who has a horrendous, abusive attitude and a terrible smell just to masked the demigod scent of your child to prevent monsters from attacking, you are an amazing mother.

What about you?
