Top 5 Wednesday is a goodreads group started by Lainey ( ) and is now being hosted by Sam ( ). This weeks topic is your top 5 motherly figures in books and I had trouble with this topic because there are not many motherly figures I find to be in books. Here are my top five favorite mothers in literature.

  1. Mrs Weasley from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling.  Mrs Wealsey is such a good mother to all her children. She even accepts Harry into the family and treats him like one of her own sons. Harry never got all of that love and attention from his aunt and uncle but Mrs Weasley makes sure he does.





2. Marilla Cuthbert from Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Marilla didn’t want a girl but when Anne came from the orphanage instead that all changed. She began to love Anne and was Anne’s most loving parent in all the homes Anne was sent to.




3. Tris’s mom from Divergent by Veronica Roth. Tris’s mom got killed saving the life of her child. Tris’s mother was definitely a lot like Tris as she was willing to give up her life for the people she loved.




4. Frua Hermann from The book Thief by Marcus Zusak. Frua Hermann was a stern insulting women but she still loved Liesel and her husband more than anyone else in the world.




5. Sydney’s mother from Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen. Sydney’s mother at the start of the book didn’t understand what Sydney was going through she was to focused on her son who was sent to prison for driving drunk and paralyzing a person. Over the progression of the book though the mother starts to notice what is wrong, and starts helping Sydney out.
