Top Ten Books Set In Another Country

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together.

This week’s list is all about books that are based in a different country. I’m from England, so I could totally pick loads of US books as most of the books I read are set in the US. However, I’ve decided to go for Europe! As ever, book images go to Goodreads!

Ten Memorable Dads In Literature

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is a Father’s Day freebie. I decided to go with some of the most memorable father’s in literature…so here goes!

  • Mr WormwoodMatilda– Roald Dahl- He’s an awful father. He doesn’t care about his wonderfully intelligent daughter!
  • Lucius MalfoyHarry Potter– J.K. Rowling- He encourages Draco to be unkind to others. He makes Draco think he’s far superior. I don’t like that!
  • George Mole- Adrian Mole– Sue Townsend- George is hardly a role model to Adrian!
  • Old Nick- Room– Emma Donoghue- Thinking of the character just makes my blood boil.

Now some memorable in a good way fathers! 

  • Otto Frank- The Diary of Anne Frank– Anne Frank- Without Otto, we wouldn’t have Anne’s diary.
  • Hans HubermannThe Book Thief– Markus Zusak- I featured Rosa in my mother list, so I couldn’t help but mention Hans too. He’s a super sweet father.
  • Atticus FinchTo Kill A Mockingbird– Harper Lee- I couldn’t put together a list about fathers and not include Atticus. He’s super special. Kind, caring, respectful and he truly loves his children.
  • Bob CratchitA Christmas Carol- Charles Dickens- He just wanted to do well by his family!
  • Arthur WeasleyHarry Potter- J.K. Rowling- Loved his wife, mentioned his wife in my mothers list, so of course had to include him. A set of wonderful (present) parents!
  • Carson DrewNancy Drew- Carolyn Keene- I loved reading about Nancy’s father when I was younger. I remember always thinking he sounded amazing!
