TOP TEN TUESDAY- Mother's Day- Worst Moms

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly Meme hosted by the Broke and Bookish. This week is a Mother's Day freebie and while I think most people will go positive I am choosing to do a list of worst moms in literature. 
This is not because of any bitterness, I love my mom :) I just thought it might be fun.

1) Queen Gertrude- Hamlet

2) Charlotte Haze- Lolita

3 and 4) Corinne Dollanganger and Olivia Foxworth- Flowers in the Attic

5) Medea- Medea

6)Margaret White- Carrie

7) Mrs. Wormwood- Matilda

8) Mrs. Bennet- Pride and Prejudice

9) Mrs. Lisbon- The Virgin Suicides

10) The Other Mother- Coraline

Who do YOU think should make this list?


  1. I totally agree with Mathildas mom being on this list.

  2. I feel kind of bad for Mrs. Bennet - she wants her daughters to marry for wealth, not necessarily for love, but she's just a product of her time!

  3. I have to agree with you on all these choices! I'm a new follower. I hope you get to stop by my <a href="http://cafinatedreads.com/top-ten-tuesday-10-love-inspired-books-about-motherhood-journeys/>TTT</a>!

  4. Ugh yes I disliked the other mother in Coraline so much. Great list.

  5. Corinne and Mrs Wormwood are awful mothers. Great choices! :-)

  6. Great list! Definitely agree about Mrs. Wormwood!
