I have two book families that I absolutely love and adore. The first book family I love is The Claybornes from For the Roses by Julie Garwood. This family was so different and fabulous I really couldn’t get enough of them. Set in the 1800’s, four misfit boys find a baby in a trash can. At first they believe the baby to be a boy but soon find out it’s a girl. The oldest, Adam, is a runaway slave and must head west to get out of danger. But determined to raise the girl as their own and give her a proper family, the four boys head west with the baby and love her like she’s their own sister. They are unique, and fun, and so endearing I couldn’t help but wish I was a part of the family. If you haven’t read this and love historicals, be sure to pick it up. The Claybornes are so awesome.
Another book family I love is The Weaseleys from the Harry Potter series. This whole family grabbed my heart and never let go. Ron is always supportive and amusing. Ginny is brilliant and determined. I like that she doesn’t let her brothers overshadow her. The twins are my fave though. They had me laughing so many times during the books and The Deathly Hallows broke my heart. I also love the parents Molly and Arthur. I admire that they really took Harry in and treated him as if he were one of their own. With him losing so many people he loved, they were the one thing that was consistent and right in his life…and Molly was a pistol! Even Percy served his purpose. I wish we got to know more about the older brothers though. Anyway….totally awesome book fam and I wish I was the second sister. With my face on the clock and wand in hand…my natural hair color is a bit reddish so I think I’d fit right in, LOL.
Who are your favorite book families and why?
