Monthly Recs: Family Focus

November’s theme is Family Focus.I have also done monthly recommendations for August, September and October.

01 The Raven Cycle – Maggie Stiefvater

The-Raven-Cycle-Series

The Raven Boys are such a group of closeknit friends that they are pretty much a family. They all look out for each other and protect each other. Seriously guys, this group is #goals.

Along with the the Raven Boys, the women at 300 Fox Way are an amazing and inclusive family. With most YA novels, the families aren’t part of the plot or disappear after page three and you don’t see them again, but with these guys, the group does go to the 300 Fox Way ladies for advice and the ladies do get involved in the chaos.

02 Harry Potter – J.K.Rowling

Does one ever make a post without mentioning Harry Potter?

I think the most prominent family in any book series I have ever read would have to be Ron’s. The Weasleys always there for Harry. They helped him through to the train at Platform 9 3/4, they showed up to support him at the Triwizard Tournament and the fought with him in the Battle of Hogwarts. They never even hesitate to bring Harry into their life or to help him buy his schoolbooks. They’re always there for him, whether it’s Percy giving Harry school advice or Mrs Wesley sending him a Weasley jumper for Christmas.

Along with the Weasleys I think one of the most prominent family figures in Harry’s life would have to be Hagrid. I know, I know, you were expecting me to say Sirius. While he was definitely a big part of Harry’s life for a year or two, it was Hagrid who was always there for him. Hagrid made him cake for his birthday, Hagrid put together a photo album for Harry of his parents, Hagrid invited him down for tea and rock cakes that were ore rock than cake.

I may be biased because Hagrid is my favourite Harry Potter character but he was always there for Harry, he loved him so much and he never let the boy forget it.

03 Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda – Becky Albertali

The main character, Simon has a supportive family, who aren’t absent at all throughout the novel. He also has two sisters. Simon’s family feels very real and present throughout the novel, we learn their dynamic and their usual routine, this makes the book feel more homely and comfortable.

 

Books I Haven’t read:

The Kane Chronicles – Rick Riordan

I’ve not yet read this trilogy yet but from what I know, it follows Egyptian mythology. The trilogy follows two siblings saving the world and being badass.
