It’s Mother’s Day and so we’ve been thinking:
There are a lot of awesome moms in YA. So here’s a quick shoutout to five of the best!
Rose’s mom, Vampire Academy
Rose’s mom, Janine, is (to put it simply) a badass. Even if Rose and her haven’t always had the most easygoing relationship, let’s admit it: fighting evil vampires with your mom is the ultimate bonding time.
Laia’s Mom, An Ember in the Ashes
We could talk about how amazing and epic Laia’s mom is, but we can probably sum it up with this amazing quote from A Reaper in the Gates:
“Curse this world for what it does to the mothers, for what it does to the daughters. Curse it for making us strong through loss and pain, our hearts torn from our chests again and again. Curse it for forcing us to endure.”
What no we’re not crying you’re crying
Anna’s mom, Anna and the French Kiss
We’re basically just really, really grateful Anna’s mom shipped her off to Paris. We love a YA mom who sends her daughter off on the beautiful adventure of a LIFETIME. *plans re-read*
Mrs. Bennet, Pride and Prejudice
You have to admit: this classic just wouldn’t be the same without Mrs. Bennet. Love her or hate her, this lady is hilarious and the epitome of that mom who loves to ask “Sooo…are you dating anyone?”
Simon’s Mom, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda
You know what? Not just Simon’s mom. We love this ENTIRE AMAZING FAMILY. We were just looking for an excuse to say that.
