I am just a girl who loves reading and talking about books
It is that time of the week again when I bring you the Top 5 Wednesdays, created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to know how T5W works you can go to the Goodreads group by clicking here.
So here are my favorite book dads:
A Time to Kill by John Grisham
This is one of my favourite Grisham books and Carl Kee Hailey is one of my favorite literary father figures. If you haven’t read this book, here is the blurb:
The life of a ten-year-old girl is shattered by two drunken and remorseless young men. The mostly white town reacts with shock and horror at the inhuman crime. Until her black father acquires an assault rifle and takes matters into his hands.
For ten days, as burning crosses and the crack of sniper fire spread through the streets of Clanton, the nation sits spellbound as young defense attorney Jake Brigance struggles to save his client’s life…and then his own.
The rest are books that I have talked about a lot this year. I have linked the titles to my reviews to explain why these are my favorite father figures.
So, who are your favorite literary father figures?
“Papa was a man with silver eyes, not dead ones.
Papa was an accordion!
But his bellows were all empty.
Nothing went in and nothing came out.”
