Feature & Follow Friday (5)


Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and
Alison Can Read. It's a great way to meet other book bloggers!

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

We decided to go with these two fictional dads:

Ned Stark from the A Song of Ice and Fire series: He's one of the most dedicated fathers we can think of. We especially loved how he encouraged his daughter, Arya, when she wanted to learn how to use a sword by finding a teacher to give her lessons.

Abe Mazur from the Vampire Academy series: Sure, he's a bit of an unconventional dad, but he'll always be there when times are tough. Plus, he's got a killer sense of style!

Who is your favorite fictional father? Leave your link, and we'll check it out!

  11. Hi! New Linky Follower hopping on through.

    Great picks! I think Abe is an awesome dad. Although he wasn't there for Rose when she was younger, he has proved time and again that he still cares for her deeply. I've also never read GoT but I do watch the show. Oh Ned! How I miss you :(

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

  13. haha Abe Mazur!!! I did like him but didn't find him that great of a father especially since he didn't show up till Rose was 18. I haven't read Game of Thrones but thought Ned Stark was a great dad on the show. Sometimes! Old GFC and Linky follower. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Yeah, it took Abe a lot of time to come around. Ned is a great dad in the books as well, though he did sometimes put loyalty and honor before his family. But, I still love him! Thanks for stopping by!
