Follow Friday (4)

This is a weekly theme hosted by Parajunkee's View & Alison Can Read.

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

This is a difficult question. I went onto goodreads and looked at the books that I have read and picked between two choices!

From YA Books: Luke from the Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare.
I know that Luke isn't her actual dad but I he is a good father to her. He took care of her and loved her as if she was his own. I know that he wasn't in City of Lost Souls that much but I loved what he said to Clary's mom Jocelyn, she said that she wished she would have married Luke instead of Valentine to begin with and Luke replied, "But then we wouldn't have Clary."

From A Classic: Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
He is such a good role model and he taught his children very well and I loved everything that he stood for. He gave wonderful advice to Scout and Jem. If you haven't read this book, what are you waiting for? It is so beautiful.



  1. I didn't even think of Luke! Great choice! Thanks for stopping by My FF! earlier!
    Happy Friday!

  2. To Kill a Mockingbird is a great pick! Wow, I didn't even think of that and I have read it like 3 times!!

  3. Two great picks! Luke is so protective of Clary and Jocelyn, and Atticus Finch is one of the greatest literary dads ever.

  4. I also thought of Luke but I didn't use him. I've never read To Kill a Mockingbird and I haven't studied it in English yet (might do). Great answers anyway :D
