My Favourite Book Children | I Am A Mother of Many

Greetings readers!

Years ago, I did a post about my hierarchy of love interests in which I had such a splendid time telling you about all the characters I’m in love with. But today I’m focusing on characters that I don’t necessarily want to like…date or hook up with if they became real life people.

Today I’m talking about my book children.

It has recently come to my attention that my zodiac sign Cancer is the mother-figure sign and honestly it explains so much about me. I am constantly calling characters “my children” or hollering at “my son” or “my daughter” and claiming characters as little beings that I must care for and protect.  In other words I proclaim myself their mother.

And while the saying goes, parents don’t have favourite children, this mother does and we are talking about them today.

My Child Cliques 

*Groups of characters that are a (found) family themselves and I wish to mother them all!*

The Rampion Crew with the exception of Thorne


I’m running off the high of my reread and ugh I just love my children. They are such a wonderful and beautiful bunch and I can’t help but want to protect each and every one of them. Of course I can’t say the same for Thorne because he is a book-husband…but the rest of them? My sweet children that need my protection at all costs!

The Penderwick Siblings


Also my children as much as I would love to be their sibling. There is just so much personality in these characters and their different relationships with each other and I love them wholeheartedly.

The Crows


There is no real need to go into why I love these murder babies so much. They are so funny and wicked and stylish and loyal and *sobs* I just love each and every one of them so much! Even though they are always putting themselves in danger, I love rooting for them!

My Kid Couples

*Ships that I ship so hard, I’m the mother that roots for them since day one and eventually keeps nagging for grandchildren*

Josh and Hazel

Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating

I think this is the first romcom couple that I called my children. Throughout the whole book I just kept saying “oh my sweet, odd child” and “Oh my sweet. naive child” and I love them. Hazel is a wild child that I would love to be in the presence of because she is just so vibrant and Josh is someone I relate to personally as he tries to get over his hurt and take care of his family. They are both so sickeningly sweet. I can’t help but love them both as individuals and as a couple!!!

Mehr and Amun


How many times can I repeat the phrase “My children!” before it gets annoying? Because let me tell you these two are MY CHILDREN. Mehr is so amazing. Fierce and defiant and caring. Then there is my soft, sweet Amun who is just so incredibly compassionate! ❤ I LOVE THEIR STORY AND THEIR INDIVIDUAL JOURNEYS TO OVERCOMING THE THREATS THEY FACE AND TAKING THEM HEAD ON. I—I LOVE THEM.

My Babies

*Individual characters that I have a strong connection with and wish to protect with all my heart!*

Laia of Serra


We all know I bow to one queen and one queen only and that is Miss Laia of Serra. She is my daughter and owns practically my whole soul. She is one of the first characters in which I found my personality reflected and just related to so much. She is not perfect, definitely, but she is so incredibly hard-working and scared but willing to risk it all for the one she loves.

Nina Beaulieu


My girl is so quintessentially herself and I love everything about her. I may not be into insects like her or be as cheeky, but the love she has for her family and the fantasies she has about romance is just so sweet! She also has plenty of spunk which I cannot help but appreciate! I want to protect her with all my being and also make every one of her dreams come true!

Lazlo Strange

He is my soft, book-loving child and I cannot help but adore him. We would totally bond over books and languages and our love for divine intervention plots! I love Sarai too, yet oddly enough Lazlo is the one that I kept calling my son while I was reading. He is just so sweet and kind and intuitive and compassionate and everything I would want in a real son!

Basically, what you need to know is that I would lay my life down for any one of these characters. I care deeply for my children and rereading their stories is the only way I get to spend time with them, so be sure that I will probably be picking up these books again soon if I haven’t already!

Let me know what you think! Are you a book parent? Do you have characters you wish to wrap up, protect and cradle? What motherly characters do you love reading about?

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY and Happy reading!

  1. Why did I actually think these would be children? Like, 5 to 10 years of age.

    Haha, I don’t really call characters my babies. Or do I? *thinks* No, I don’t think I do. I suppose I am only affectionate for real children. Otherwise, you’re a grown adult and you better show me some character development and world saving, stat!

    I like the Crow gang fair enough, though they wouldn’t stick in my heart. And I quite like the Rampion crew, obviously. OBVIously. (I know none of the others, haha.)

    1. The Penderwicks are actually children so you’re thinking was not wrong! 😉 It’s so funny because I will be reading about characters who are older than me and I’ll still call them “my child” *shrugs* It’s just who I am!
