Feature and Follow Friday (7) and TGIF (3)

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

Q: Who is best father figure in a book you have read and why?
A: I feel like there are a lot more great dads in books than moms so you would think this would be easy but no such luck.  I had a really hard time with this one too.  Here's what I came up with...

1. The King - Entwined:  Okay, at first he's not the best parent in the world but I really love how his relationships with his daughters develops toward the end of the book.  Huge Aww-factor there.
2. Carlisle and Charlie in Twilight - I mean seriously.  They are both so perfect in their own ways.

That's it, all I could come up with.  Let me know what you got below and make sure to follow via GFC and Facebook!

TGIF is a weekly blog hop hosted by GReads.  It helps bloggers gain exposure and it gives us all one more thing to talk about on Fridays!

Q: Most Valuable Book: From your personal collection of books, which ones hold the most value to you - is it signed by the author? or maybe it's your favorite story of all time? Share it with us.

A:  My favorite is a very early edition of Longfellow's collected poems.  It was one of my grandfather's favorite books and we used to read it when I was little.  He gave it to me before he passed away.  I love poetry and antique books so with the sentimental value added in it's pretty much priceless to me.


  1. I said the same thing about no fathers in books I read. I guess parents are uncool lol. This was a hard one. New follower!

    Seen lots of Charlie, haven't read the other book.
    Check out my post:

  8. Charlie and Carlisle, YES. Everybody's mentioning Charlie and poor Carlisle has been swept to the unimportant section. He's a great father as well!

    And you and your grandfather? Adorable. Seriously. My grandfather speaks a lick of English, so to say it would be difficult to read together is an understatement of epic proportions. You're lucky you can say you've done that with him.

  9. Hi :) new GFC follower! I also chose Charlie and Carlisle :)
    Here is our FF post

  10. Awww...I love the grandfather story with the poems. So sweet! I liked Charlie as a character even though I'm not a huge Twilight fan. I have Entwined on my Kindle so I'll have to check it out. Old follower.

  11. Nice book dad choices.

  12. Great choices, I do not know the first one, but I picked Charlie as one of mine, I should have said Carlise too, as he is a great father figure to Edward.
    I am a new follower (GFC), here is my FF link,

  13. Great picks. I thought about Charlie, but not Carlisle. But I agree, Carlisle is a wonderful father, strong, empathetic, protective, etc.

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