Feature & Follow Friday......

Hello all, it's that day of the week where we learn new things about each other and discover new blogs along the way.  We also help each other by becoming followers of one another.  Normally that following would be through GFC (which would be great if you'd still take a few seconds to do), but with that being eliminated for certain blogs (a big boo-hiss to that) I now ask that you follow through a RSS Feed (or Twitter, FB, or email) which you can find to the right.  I want to thank all of you ahead of time who choose to become a follower and make sure to let me know in the comments if you're new so I doubly make sure to follow you back.  And now for this weeks get to know me question....

Q: Happy Father's Day! Who is your favorite dad character in a book and why?


A:  Not many of the books I read have a dad in the picture, so this is a tough question to answer.  I again am falling back on a series of books I adore....JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood.  The character of Zsadist was horrendously tortured growing up and was ashamed of the things that happened to him.  Because of this he never wanted children, never wanted them to be tainted by the things that were beyond his control.  He finally became a father though and seeing such a tender side to him with his large and battle-scarred body crooning lullabies to a tiny baby girl easily brings a tear to the eye.  It's brought him peace and happiness and I see it as a reward for all the bad things that befell him.


  1. I said the same thing about no fathers in books I read. I guess parents are uncool lol. I never heard of that book, I might just check it out now. New follower!
