Books Top 5 Wednesday

Top 5 Wednesday: Mother Figures

May 10, 2019
Top 5 Wednesday

What is Top 5 Wednesday?

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Sam of Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. Here is the link for the Goodreads group where you can find the list of topics and such.

This weeks topic is: Mother Figures

1. Empress of All Seasons by Emiko Jean

Maris mother isn't your typical bakes cookies and reads you a bedtime story type. She's harsh, ruthless and arguably cruel. But she isn't without her reasons and I'm so happy that there's finally a mother that's present in a YA story. Despite the situation they're in they have a believable relationship, they argue, they make up and they're both incredibly stubborn.

I have a full review here.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

2. The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven

Izzy's grandmother Betty is wonderful and deserves to be on this list. She is fiercely protective whilst still allowing Izzy to make her own mistakes and to learn from them. She works still to support them, swears and has a dog named Dumbledore.

I have a review here.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

 

3. Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Give her her due, Darrow's mother didn't shy away when her son returned to her...from the dead and also now blonde and six foot tall. Despite being a red she still put the other colours in their places latterly.

I have a review of Iron Gold* here.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

4. The Twisted Tree by Rachel Burge

Martha's mother is fab. She's realistic, they argue but at the end, she'll help you battle a nordic demon thing without batting an eye. I loved how the two of them interacted and how even when she wasn't in the scene Martha described their relationship. It's brilliant.

I have a review here.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

5. The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas

The entire Carter family is brilliant but as its mother themed we'll focus on Starr's mother Lisa. She puts everyone in their place and will not let her kids put themselves in harm's way. However, she accepts that they need to make their own mistakes and recognises when they need to speak out. Possibly my favourite thing is how she treats Seven as her own child. It's so wholesome.

I have a review here.

Who are some of your favourite mother figures

Thank you for reading,
