Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
in honor of Mothers’ Day, today is all about fictional moms. So let’s talk about some of the best and some of the worst moms in fiction!
BEST: Molly Weasley (Harry Potter)
Let’s start with the obvious, shall we? Almost everybody would love their own Weasley sweater, knit specially for them by Molly Weasley. (I know I would.)
WORST: The Commandant (An Ember in the Ashes)
Other than just generally being cruel and evil, I’m also pretty sure that trying to kill your own son is not okay
BEST: Maura Sargent (The Raven Cycle)
Maura Sargent is pretty much the best mom / psychic combo out there!
WORST: Cersei Lannister (A Game of Thrones)
Sure, she loves her kids. But she’s also cruel, conniving, manipulative and somewhat of an alcoholic. Not to mention, her kids tend to end up dead anyway.
BEST: Sally Jackson (Percy Jackson)
There’s nothing Sally wouldn’t do for Percy, whether it’s making blue food or living with a douchebag for Percy’s safety.
WORST: Mrs. Reed (My Life Next Door)
When your daughter feels more at home with the neigbors than with you, there may be a small problem.
BEST: Emily Spier (Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda)
Though she may take her job as a child psychologist home sometimes to her kids’ annoyance, she’s also super nice and supportive and a great mom.
WORST: Mrs. Everdeen (The Hunger Games)
Sure, there are definitely terrible circumstances that Mrs. Everdeen had to deal with. But when your daughter is forced to hunt and put her life in danger to keep your family from starving, while you’re doing nothing, you may need some urgent help!
BEST: Mrs. Mendoza AND Mrs. Quintana (Aristotle and Dante Discover The Secrets of the Universe)
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe is a story about two boys… who both happen to have amazing mothers.
WORST: Margaret White (Carrie)
Umm… I feel like this one pretty much goes without saying.
