Ten of The Best & Worst Dads in Literature / Top Ten Tuesday

Hello and welcome to this week's Top Ten Tuesday! This week's post is Best & Worst Days in LiteratureMy previous Top Ten Tuesday post was, My Top Ten Most Anticipated Reads For the 2nd Half of 2017

When it comes to books, we love it when we get to "meet" the parents of the characters we're reading about. There are some stellar fictional parents we've loved reading about, and some not so stellar ones. Sophie & I love talking parental characters as much as we do main characters. It was no surprise that in complying this list with some of our favs to love, and favs we love to hate, our lists were pretty close to identical. 

Here are our 10 Favorite Fathers/Father Figures whom we love and those we find not to great. The ones on this list were easy to love, and the others, well they were really easy for us to despise them.


  • Arthur Weasley, Harry Potter
  • Nathan & Andy, Lola and the Boy Next Door
  • Mr Bennett, Pride & Prejudice 
  • Pa Ingalls, Little House On The Prairie 
  • Luke Garroway, The Mortal Instruments


  • Valentine Morgenstern, The Mortal Instruments series
  • Lucius Malfoy, Harry Potter series 
  • Harry Wormwood, Matilda
  • Savannah's dad, All In Pieces
  • Marcello Dragna, Caraval 
I'm pretty sure that while this list isn't as long as I know it could be, we'll think of even more to add after this is posted. For some reason when we're making these lists we can't think of anyone, but after it's posted we think of more. 

Who are some of your favorite fictional fathers?
