Top Ten Best & Worst Dads In Literature {Top Ten Tuesday}

Hello and welcome to Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Today's topic is very interesting and it actually took me a while to decide which books/characters to feature. So, keep reading if you want to learn about my Top Ten Nine
Make sure to let me know if you've read any of the books mentioned and whether you enjoyed them or not! Also, don't forget to leave me your links in the comments so I can check out your lists!

*Mr. Weasley From Harry Potter By J.K. Rowling ⇨ Best!*
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy
I love Harry Potter and it's been with me since I was a child! And I could not get enough of Arthur Weasley! He's caring, supportive, super cool and of course, loyal! He is the definition of Dad Goals in my opinion and even though it's been years, I still cannot get enough of him!

*Frank From Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children By Ransom Riggs ⇨ Maybe*
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Paranormal

I'm still not sure about Frank and I think that, when I get around to reading Hollow City, I'll get a clearer picture of him in my head. But I remember myself being very confused about whether I like him or not so, what do you guys think?!

*Supreme Commander a.k.a Warner's Dad a.k.a *won't spoil* From Shatter Me Trilogy By Tahereh Mafi ⇨ Worst!*
Genres: Young Adult, Dystopia

If you've read the trilogy, you'll definitely know exactly what I'm talking about. I hate this guy so much I want to punch something with his face on it. Well, I don't really know what he looks like but, still. Probably one of the most hated characters I've encountered in a book and the worst father in the history of books and reality, without a single doubt.
*Valentine a.k.a Clary's dar From the Mortal Instruments Series By Cassandra Clare ⇨ Worst!*
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Paranormal

Another character that I hate with a passion! He's awful and tried to mess with the lives of his children so he could play God and do whatever the hell he wanted. No...Just, take him away from me! 

*Andrew Prior a.k.a Tris's dad From the Divergent Trilogy By Veronica Roth ⇨ Best!*
Genres: Young Adult, Dystopia

Andrew Prior is probably on of the most underrated and underappreciated characters ever! He pretends to be this conservative dad but, everything is not what it seems!

*Belial a.k.a Anna's father a.k.a Duke of Illegal Substances From Sweet Trilogy By Wendy Higgins ⇨ Best?!*
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Paranormal 

This is a series I loved and immensely enjoyed reading! And Belial is a very underestimated character. I'm going to leave it at that because I really don't remember my exact feelings and have to go back in order to refresh my memory! But I remember liking him , I just can't figure out why at the moment! 
*Juliet's Dad a.k.a I'm so sorry I can't remember his name From Letters to the Lost By Brigid Kemmerer ⇨ Best!!!*
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance

I recently read Letters to the Lost and absolutely loved it! And Juliet's dad was just a silent force to be reckoned with! Took her long enough to realize but, thankfully, she did! 

*Mr. Hall From Such A Rush By Jennifer Echols ⇨ Best!*
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance

This is one of my favorite contemporaries and I cannot recommend it enough! Mr. Hall was definitely Dad Goals! Kind, understanding and caring, he looked after everyone and made sure they were happy!

*Abby's dad From Beautiful & Walking Disaster By Jamie McGuire ⇨ Worst!*
Genres: New Adult, Romance

There's a lot of controversy surrounding these books but, I just love them! And if you've read them, you'll know that Abby's dad is a big fat nothing! 

*Bonus! Favorite quote that I still cannot get enough of!*

“To douchebags!" he said, gesturing to Brad. "And to girls that break your heart," he bowed his head to me. His eyes lost focus. "And to the absolute fucking horror of losing your best friend because you were stupid enough to fall in love with her.”

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Don't forget to comment below letting me know what you thought of my choices!
