With Father's Day just around the corner, here are some books that remind us of what we love (and hate) about our dads. This year, Father's Day falls right around what would have been my Dad's birthday. Here's to you, Dad! I love and miss you.
The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls -This books was gut-wrenching and heart-breaking, and some parts uplifting. It goes to show that no matter who your dad is, you can't help but love him. I just finished this, so expect a review soon (or what's called here at The Kindled Scholar, a "reflection").
Special Topics in Calamity Physics by Marisha Pessl -Blue van Meer and her father have a very special relationship. Har father, Gareth van Meer is what you wished your dad would be, only cooler. He is intelligent, charming, a bit dramatic, and the ladies love him.
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold - I love stories told from the perspective of a Daddy's girl. That's what Susie Salmon was, and seeing how her death affected her father was difficult. I loved their relationship and the closeness they felt, even after Susie was gone.
What are some other books about dads out there? Do share!
Love and (a book) light,
