Follow Me Friday
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. Sounds like GFC is eventually going away so follow by email or bloglovin/feedly (I love both). And now for this week's question....
Q. Happy Mother's Day! Who is your favorite mom from fiction?
A. Oh wow.. humm.... I looked through my whole list of read book on goodreads and I just didn't see very many moms in my books. I have books with bad moms though... so I had to think about it. I pick Stephanie Plums mom in the Janet Evanovich books. If you haven't read this books they are short fun detective novels. Stephanie is always getting in trouble is 30 something (I think) and won't settle down and pick a man. Her mom (Ellen if I remember correctly) tries to be a good mom and raise Stephanie right... but of course Stephanie like the rest of us doesn't listen. Though her mom still loves her!
What about you???

Amie @Magic of Words
They are fun.. nonsense book. A really light read!Delete
I don't really like mystery so I haven't read Janet Evanovich's books, but she sounds like a good mom!ReplyDelete
I totally agree. I think most mom's in books are dreadful.
Rie @ Mission to Read
Funny thing is I don't like mystery really either.. I don't even remember why I started reading these books.Delete
Bad moms generally stick out as opposed to the ones who don't have anything going on for them so they're easily forgotten! I have Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series in my TBR! I've only the movie to go on but I really would love to read those books, they look super fun :)ReplyDelete

-Seirra @ Dear, Restless Reader
Oh no!! Don't base these books off the movie. The movie was OK... I liked it but didn't LOVE it. The books are totally more fluff!Delete
Haven't read those. I had to go with the easy answer, because technically it's true. Mrs. Weasley from Harry Potter!ReplyDelete
Here's my Follow Friday
Have a GREAT weekend!

I've not read any of the Stephanie Plum books, but I've had a lot of people recommend them...it's just a bit of too many books too little time. Thanks for stopping by this week.ReplyDelete
Traci @ Mad Hatter Reads
Oh I know how that is!!! I am know that there are a lot of books in that series now and it is probably daunting to begin!Delete
I have never read the Stephanie Plum series, but they have a ton of them at the library so I may have to investigate. Thanks for stopping by my blog, new follower!ReplyDelete
Usually my library orders a lot too every time a new book comes out!Delete
Followed you back! I thought the same thing when I first saw this question - most of the books have non-existent or not great moms! But, then I thought of Mrs. Weasley from Harry Potter. Seems that almost everyone else thought of her too!ReplyDelete
I was going to pick her... but I knew everyone would!! She is a great mom!Delete
I haven't ever read Janet Evanovich, though I see her books all over and hear great things about them. I should really try one out sometime. :D Great answer. Following via bloglovin. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
They are good books... but starting to follow the same format now. :( But I love the characters so much I have continued reading them. Thanks for stopping by!Delete
I haven't read Janet Evanovich either, but I see her name a lot. :)ReplyDelete
