Top 10 Tuesday: Top 10 Best and Worst Mother and Daughter / Son relationships

Thank you The Broke and the Bookish for organizing the fun Top Ten Tuesday and for the meme!


May 16th: Top 10 Best and Worst Mother and Daughter / Son releationships

In no particular order this is my list, First will be Best 5 relationships and then the last 5 will be Worst

I never realized how hard it was to pick this list. I thought this would be easy but most YA stories are about the teens journey and the parents are usually just glanced over.

Best relationship

1Perfect (Flawed #2) by 
In Perfect the sequel to Flawed you realize how amazing and supportive Celestine North's mother is.

2. A Million Worlds with You (Firebird #3) by 
I picked book 3 since parents can change throughout the series but Marguerite really wins the lotto with both her parents in this trilogy and has an amazing relationship with her mother.

3. Eternal Sacrifice (Mortal Enchantment #4) by 

I really enjoyed the relationship between Kalin and her mother that you slowly get especially towards the end of this series.

4. The Crown (The Selection #5) by 

5. The Iron Warrior (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #3) by  
Ethan and Meghan won in the most understanding mother catagory in this series.

Worst Relationship 

6. A Torch Against the Night (An Ember in the Ashes #2) by 

Elias takes the cake of having the worst mother and that is just more proven in this second book of the series.

7. Glitter by 
Danica's mom definitely sucks. Her father even becomes addicted to drugs to drown the probelms she seems to create their family. Yah she is not winning a mother of the year award.

8. Crystal Storm (Falling Kingdoms #5) by 

Magnus dad has taken the forefront in being a horrible father but his mother was no saint. 

9. Out Of The Ashes (The Ending #3) by  
Zoe and Jason's mother is a piece of work. She may have had her reasons but she still was a crap mother.

10. Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles #3.5) by  
I know this is not techniquely a mother story and is a stepmother but man Queen Levana definitely comes to mind.

Come back next week May 23rd: Top ten books with a summer feel cover 


  1. Oh yes! Queen Levana is an awful stepmother!

  2. I love that you separated this week's topic into two categories. That's fun. :)

    I haven't finished The Selection series yet, but cannot wait. The original series (I've read some of the novellas as well as "The Selection" and "The Elite") is really good so far. Cannot wait to finish it, and read the two "spin off" books. :)

  3. YES! Queen Levana was the worst! As much as the Evil Queen's mother from OUAT! Amazing list!

  4. I want to try the Claudia Gray books since the other books by her that I've read I liked. And the Falling Kingdoms books as well. Nice list!

  5. The Commandant is so so horrible! She's just plain evil. Great list!
    My Top Ten

  6. Awful mothers really can be the impetus for greatness and badassery! Great list!

    My TTT.

  7. UGH, YES. Elias has the WORST mother. Like she couldn't get any worse!
