June 15th: Favorite Literary Fathers/Father Figures
In celebration of Father’s Day this month for most countries, talk about your favorite dads!
Arthur Weasley
I don’t know about you guys but I always dreamed about having a dad like Arthur; funny, brave and overall embarrassing lol
Atticus Finch
I’m just going to ignore the events that unfold in Go Set a Watchman and focus on the brave and righteous Atticus
Mr. Earnshaw
This guy is barely in Wuthering Heights but his impact pretty much sets the whole story in motion. He is a good guy who wanted to do the right thing and adopts poor Heathcliff despite his skin color and most of the family’s dislike of the child. He dies way too soon and I would love to know how things would have been different had he lived (maybe a happy ending for Cathy and Heathcliff?).
Shalom Singer
America’s father always wanted the best for America and her siblings. He just genuinely seems like a good guy who wants his family to be happy.
And I can’t think of a fifth one….yikes. If anyone has suggestions I’m sure I’m forgetting some awesome dads but my brain feels like mush after a late night at work.
XOXO,
Mary

June 8th: Favorite Character Names
-Fairly self-explanatory. Names you like for whatever reason!

Ginevra “Ginny” Weasley
Ginny is my favorite character in the Potter series she’s a total badass and a great friend. Plus I’ve always wanted to be a red head hahaha. I love the nickname Ginny it’s definitely on my list of possible girl names should I have a daughter in the future.

Ginny Weasley

Charlotte Holmes
Charlotte is such a classy name and Charlotte despite her flaws is a pretty classy I think. Charlotte is a strong force to be reckoned with and I admire her for always standing by her convictions and for relying on her brains.

A Study in Charlotte

Alice 
Oh Alice how I love you. She’s curious, playful, and imaginative and I just love her to pieces. Plus whenever I take any of those what is your Disney name I always get Alice.

Alice in Wonderland

Primrose Everdeen
Prim is a beautiful name for a strong and beautiful character. She was independent and strong in a way that complimented Katniss and she could always bring out a softer side to our at time jaded main character.

Cadence Sinclair
Cadence has been a favorite name of mine for years so I was super excited to find a book with Cadence as a MC. Her name evokes power, money, and is just overall alluring.

We Were Liars

As you can see I have pretty girly classic taste in names lol. What are your favorite character names?

XOXO,
Mary
