3/17/2016: Father’s Day is celebrated in a couple of days in a few countries!
Choose a book with a awesome father figure.
This week’s Book Traveling Thursday topic is kind of a hard one, seeing
as most of the time the father is absent. And by absent, I mean physically
and/or mentally. This is making me realize even more how non existent
parents, especially fathers, really are in YA books these days…WHERE YA AT!?
Anyway for this week, after thinking LONG AND HARD, I decided to go with
the Father in The Lovely Bone by Alice Sebold. He was a loving father,
who never gave up on finding his daughter.
1.) US Movie Cover 2.) UK 3.) Picador 40th Anniversary Cover.
It’s hard to say which of these is my most favorite because they are
are so good looking. I think this time I am going to stick with the kind of
plain one. I will choose the Picador Anniversary cover. It’s really nice! I
wish I had it on my bookshelf! 🙂
Least Favorite Covers:
1.) Spanish 2.) Russian 3.) Czech 4.) Turkish.
These covers actually aren’t as bad as I thought they were going to be.
You never know what you will get with books about death. Saying that, I
think they worst of the worst has to go to the Turkish cover. I’m not sure that
I would have picked this up, if I saw that halo on the cover…
Who are some of your favorite Father Figures in books?
Let me know down in the comments! 😀
