Feature & Follow Friday 06/15/2012

Welcome to Feature and Follow Friday hosted by Parajunee's View and Alison Can Read!
After a week of I am back with this weeks questions.

This week our question pertains to Father's Day:

Question:
Who is the best Dad Figure in a book, and Why?

Answer:
Arthur Weasley — He’s certainly quirky, and occasionally seems a little clueless, but he’s really a great dad. He’s absolutely loyal and supportive of his sizable family, including continuing to try to redeem his estranged son Percy even when he seems completely lost. Without the benefit of wealth, he and Molly still manage to keep their family going strong even in the face of Death Eaters.

Others:

Tom Imura - older brother to Benny Imura in the Jonathan Maberry series. Tom is the one character that made the first book in the series. What happens to him in the second was extremely heart breaking and sad. I shall miss Tom.

Albus Dumbledore - Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling. Albus was more of a mentor than a father figure yet without his direction and support, Harry wouldn't have made it past his first year in school.

How about Faythe's father (Shifters) who fave up everything, including his own life, in order to ensure that Faythe and her brother's got everything they needed from life?

Abe - Rose's father from the Vampire Academy series. Ruthless, yet strangely proud that his daughter has the same spunk and cockiness that he does. 

There are plenty of other good choices out there, and I'm looking forward to blog
hopping to see your answers. If you stop by, please leave your link so I can
return the favor!

Happy Friday and Happy Father's Day!

  7. For me, I think that Faythe's father was one of the best father figures I have seen in books. He is strict and loving and he prepares her so well for her role in later books. Good choices on the other dads, too.

  8. Hi, new follower here. The only books I have read from your post are the Harry Potter books, but the shifters sounds interesting.

  9. I figured loads of people would say Arthur and Albus and I feel like such a loser because I only read up to Chamber of Secrets. Boos for me!

    I DO KNOW ABE, though. AND LOVE HIM. I just finished saying how awesome he is for his flashiness, humor, and general bad-assery :D

  14. Abe and Mr. Weasley are awesome picks, Dumbledore too. Sometimes I forget the type of fatherly figure he was to Harry.

    Here's my FF if you'd like to check it out. :)

  18. I would pick Arthur Weasley, too! We just did our favorite witch on my blog and Mrs. Weasley was a popular choice. Love those Weasleys. :)
