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?

I'm going to say Vampire Academy because: 1) I'm just embarrassingly obsessed with that series.  And 2) I loved how insightful Rose and her mother's relationship was. Rose's mom was tough and unyielding so Rose turned out to be just the same. I especially loved when Rose lost one of her best friends in... Frostbite (Was it Frostbite?) and her mom let her cry on her shoulder. Very touching!

Also, Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, even though I thought this book was just okay. Lena and her uncle, Macon, had a nice relationship. I know that's not really... mother/daughter... but if you squint your eyes... Hey! There are not a lot of good mother/daughter books in YA! The parents never care about their kids! Lol!

  3. I haven't read either of these series but I agree there isn't a whole lot of parenting in YA books, unless of course you count bad parenting lol.

  4. I loved the relationship between Rose and her mother. Sometimes it wasn't so sweet and more of tough love, but it was still a strong relationship.
