Follow and Feature Friday # 35

Hi everyone..happy Friday!! Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read! Happy Early Father's day to all the Dads out there!!

So this Friday's question is..

Q: Who is the best father figure you have read in a book and why?

A: Oh man..this is a really hard question!! The first book that came to mind would be Albus Dumbledore from the Harry Potter series..he was a father figure to Harry right? Harry really looks up to him and values his advice and opinion so much. Without him, Harry wouldn't have been able to become the character we all know and love. Another father figure that came to mind is Arthur Weasley (also from Harry Potter). He always has some of the funniest lines in the book and he truly is a great father :)

Well..who is the best father figure you have read in a book?? What do you think of my choices?? I was feeling a Harry Potter theme this was as you can all tell :) Comment below and let me know what you think!

I got lucky since I had just read A Want So Wicked so it was stuck in my head, otherwise this might have been a hard question! But Dumbledore works, he was the closest thing to a father for Harry!

I said the same thing about no fathers in books I read. I guess parents are uncool lol. I figured Mr. Weasley would be a popular one. New follower!

Harry Potter has so many great father figures in the series that any one of them could make this list. They're all memorable, for different reasons, but among the similarities are their roles as fathers. I've GOT to finish the series...

Two great choices! Mr. Weasley - DEFINITELY. With a family as large as his I think it's great that he maintains such a wonderful relationship with all his kids + Harry & Hermione (I'm sure).

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

Nice pick on Dumbledore. He was an awesome character, but I always thought of him as just the professor, lol.
