It’s Mothers Day, so let’s chat about the WORST mothers we have read about. You know, we can’t always chat about just the positives, right?
The first book that springs to mind with this topic is the horrendous step-mother in Reason to Breathe. She is abusive and horrible and seriously why doesn’t the girl’s Dad see it?
Publishers Weekly has a list of the 10 worst Mothers in books. A similar good point about the step-mothers in Hansel and Gretel.
Also check out this list from Penguin Random House of 16 worst mothers in books!
Dang! Julie always has the good ideas first. I was going to list Reason to Breathe!
Instead, I’ll go with Bernadette from Where’d You Go, Bernadette. Virtual assistant, running away from her family, all-around not good mother.
I found some Goodreads lists as well!
How about you? Any bad moms stand out to you?
