Follow Me Friday (#33)

This is the day of the week where we get to know each other better by answering a question devised by our lovely hostesses Parajunkee & Alisoncanread. We also gain new followers by joining each other's sites via GFC, so please let me know if you're a new follower since I automatically follow back. And now for this week's question....

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?



A. Well... I was looking through the books I've read and decided to do grandma and grandkids.  What came to my mind is Sookie and her grandma Adele Hale Stackhouse and Stephanie Plum and her Grandma Mazur.   The chemistry between these characters is great.  Spoiler:  Too bad Sookie's grandma died so soon.. but they seemed to be really close!

What moms/grandmas do you like?


  1. Lol, love the Gif. :D
    I also like grandmas in novels. Most of the time they're really funny and wise.

  2. Ooh yeah, forgot about Sookie's grandma. I did like her relationship with Sookie.

    It's funny because Sookie's grandma was one of the few characters I like in the Stackhouse books. Or book, rather, I never even finished the first one. But, that is definitely a good pick!

    HERE is my FF!

  5. I do love the Southern Vampire series and I agree that Sookie's grandma was great!

  7. great choice. new follower. my friday

  8. Old follower now also following through Networked Blogs, I haven't read the Sookie books but I've seen the first season of the show, my FF

  9. When I saw the photo of Debbie Reynolds, it immediately made me think of Carrie Fisher's POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE. Now that was an illustration of a STRONG mother/daughter relationship. It many not have been healthy; however, they found a way to make it work and it was, indeed, very strong.
