Unforgettable Mothers in Literature

One of the many things I am grateful for is my love of books and reading. I credit my mom with this love because I grew up watching her fill her leisure hours reading, and because our house was always filled with books (books, books everywhere just like my house now). This weekend as we celebrate Mother’s Day, I thought it would be fun to swirl books, reading and mothers together to create a short list of unforgettable mothers in literature. Take a look at the list below. Perhaps you’ve already met these mothers, and if so, you know that they range from heavenly (like my mom) to warped. But one thing they all exhibit is the very thing that mothers are known for…love. If you haven’t met these mothers or if you want to reacquaint yourself with these women, this is a great weekend to pick out a book, kick back and enjoy! 

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Reading!

    • Thank you, Shey, and hope your Mother’s Day was memorable (in a good way). Really hoping your little co-authors behaved themselves for your special weekend.

    • It was a great weekend! I traveled to visit my mom and we enjoyed a play and of course, ice cream. It was great fun, had a ball. Hope your Mother’s Day weekend was super fun and relaxing too. We all deserve that, don’t we?
