5 of the Best Fictional Dads

Happy Father’s Day!

You’d be surprised how hard it was to find books from my read pile that don’t have teens who are orphaned. Nonetheless, Happy Father’s Day! I doubt there’s any dad’s reading this besides my own, but I thought I’d make this seasonal post anyways 🙂


5: Lara Jean’s Dad 15749186

You may remember the widowered (???is that even the correct phrasing? Male widow?) father of the three adorably cute, Korean/American girls. I like that he still tries to include their mother’s heritage in their lifestyle, even when they’re being brought up in America.

2096969814: Marguerite’s Dad

I can’t really say much about Marguerite’s crazy scientist of a dad, but let’s just say– he’s pretty cool. He invented a time travelling machine/necklace, but incidentally introduces a few mishaps (aka EVIL) from the other realms.

My GR’s review.


3: Charlie Swan (Bella’s Dad) 418651

Some people may detest this one, but I thought Charlie was hilarious! Plus he was a great source of non-vampire-related advice for Bella. Plus, he made the movies that little smidgen more enjoyable.


281872: Poseidon (Percy Jackson’s Dad)

He’s got sass, and oh yeah, he’s a god. He’s probably not ‘Father of the Year’ for his other son, Tyson, but to Percy he’s been pretty cool. Unlike Zeus (tsk tsk).

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1) Review

The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #2) Review

The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #4) Review

The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #5) Review



And finally…

1: Feyre’s Father

The ending of ACOWAR is all I need to say. Yeah, he sucked c. ACOMAF (and just abandoned his three daughters). But he was a major hero in the final battle of the trilogy.
