Top Ten Best Mother Figures in Books I've Read!

1. Izzy from Pictures of Hollis Woods by Patricia Reilly Giff
She's Hollis' foster mother and she's just amazing.  I loved how loved and welcome she made Hollis feel!

2. Rosa from The Book Thief by Markus Zusak 
Such a great and layered character -- I love how we see such a tough shell from her in the beginning but slowly unveil the kind and loving person beneath, especially where Liesel is concerned.  

3. Maguire's mom from Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes
This was such a great book for a bunch of different reasons, but Maguire's relationship with her mom was definitely one of my favorites! She was so patient and understand. 

4. Chelsea from Sustained by Emma Chase
Chelsea was put into such a horrible situation when her brother and sister-in-law died -- she stepped up and became a mom for her six orphaned nieces and nephews.  She's so strong and caring and real!

5. Sally Jackson from Percy Jackson and the Olympian by Rick Riordan

6. Nana from The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough

7. Jase's mom fro My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
What a star! She has about a million kids and yet still stay patient, nice, and fun.  I love reading about her and her relationships with her children!

8. Lina's mom from Between Shades of Gray written by Ruta Sepetys
I mean . . . she's so strong.  It was so heart wrenching and awe-inspiring to see her stay strong for her children. 

9. Margot from To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han 
It's clear in the first book that she's been the acting mom of the family since their mom died.  As the older sister, she's taken on the responsibility of mother. 

10. Molly Weasley from The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
Molly is the epitome of a great mother and this list definitely wouldn't be complete without her!
