Feature and Follow Friday #37

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee’s View and Alison at Alison Can Read. It is a great way for bloggers to make new friends and find new blogs to follow. Go to either blog, follow ALL the instructions and then add your link to the list. It’s just that easy!

This week’s question:

Happy Father's Day! Who is your favorite dad character in a book and why?

I have several fathers that I like. Here they are in no particular order:

Even though he is not actually her real father, I love Luke from the Mortal Instruments series! He cares deeply for Clary, even though she is not his daughter. He does his best to protect her, her mother and her friends, he doesn't take any crap from anyone and he makes an awesome werewolf! Luke is a great father to Clary, something she really needs.

I also like Charlie and Carlisle from the Twilight series. Again, they are protective of their children and will go to any length in order to protect them.

And finally, Stephanie Plum's dad, Frank, from the Janet Evanovich series. He is so funny, without trying. I love his relationship with Grandma Mazur and how frustrated he gets with his crazy family. He makes a great straight man. 

Who are your favorite dads from books? Leave a comment and I will stop by and take a look!


  1. Oh I hadn't thought about Charlie! Great choices! :)

  2. I didn't even think of Luke! He was great though and he put a lot on the line for Clary. New follower!

  7. I love that you included Frank from Stephanie Plum series! I thought about him, but didn't know how to say got it right on!!! I am now following you through GFC as lucyatmax…please return the follow at
    Thanks Amie, you made me smile!

  8. YAY for a new YA dad pick! I didn't even think of Luke, but now that I am, YOU'RE RIGHT. I always thought him incredibly adorable and hot, but for a father figure? He nails the role. :D

  9. Charlie's a terrible dad. He doesn't know his daughter's a vampire (or dating a vampire, depending on which book you're reading). I actually pitied him through the whole series.

    Now, a REALLY COOL dad is Mo from Ink Heart. How can you book lovers not pick Mo? He can read storybook characters into your bedroom! You cannot get a better book dad than that. I mean, really, if you like Charlie, have Mo read him into your life and then ask if he'll adopt you. :-)
