Friday Fives | Best Dads in Literature

Posted June 18, 2021 by TheNonbinaryLibrarian in friday fives / 0 Comments

I started #FridayFavorites back when I started up the blog again and wanted to make sure I kept at least one regular post a week. This was, of course, before I knew there were others out there. But I decided to keep it, especially since I have the whole year planned out. In December, I decided to change it to #FridayFives instead to have more room for topics. If anyone wants to join me, the list for future topics can be found here.

Dads in literature are some of the best characters. They can be there for their kids while also providing the comedy we need as readers to keep going. Here are some of the best dads in literature.

“It’s no so bad if I take a break from Avatar business. I’ll get to spend more time with you. We should go on vacation, the two of us, perhaps to see the Air Nomad sacred sites.”



“There are, he assures her, no such things as curses. There is luck, maybe, bad or good. A slight inclination of each day toward success or failure. But no curses.”

Daniel Leblanc


“Let me not have the grief of seeing you unable to respect your partner in life.”

Mr. Bennet


“Lastly, the Hubermanns. Hans. Papa. He was tall in the bed and I could see the silver through his eyelids. His soul sat up. It met me. Those kind of souls always do-the best ones. The Ones who rise up and say, ‘I know who you are and I am ready. Not that I want to go, of course, but I will come.’ Those souls are always light because more of them have been put out. . . . Liesel. His soul whispered it as I carried him.”

Death’s thoughts on Papa


“Logan, I let this thing out, but I don’t regret it. I would do it again. I would let it kill me to keep you alive.”

Brandon Ortiz-Woodley
