TTT: The Ties that Bind – Fabulous Father-Daughter Bonds

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday (TTT) brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish.

June 13: Father’s Day related Freebie:  favorite dads in literature, best father/daughter or son relationships, books to buy your dad, worst dads in literature, etc. etc.

While this is mostly a book blog, over the last two years I’ve written several posts about the loss of my dad (How do you live in a world where your dad doesn’t exist? and To my Dad. Merry Christmas, and most recently March Madness). In fact, his death was ultimately the reason I started this blog; I needed something to both fill up my time and help me work through my loss, and book blogging turned out to be what I needed. I won’t get into all that again here, but just know that I always have been a sucker for a good Father-Daughter relationship, today more than ever.

This week’s topic is pretty open-ended, so to honor my relationship with my dad, I thought I would visit some of my favorite father-daughter duos.

Fabulous Father-Daughter Bonds


I’m sure I’m missing some other fabulous father-daughter duos here. Many of these are recent reads that I really loved. A Million Junes and The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry (review coming soon!) are two of my favorite reads of this year.

…and my favorite father/daughter duo…



Your turn! Who are your favorite father/daughter pairs? This was a pretty open-ended topic this week, how did you tackle it? Sound off below and link up to your own TTT if you’ve got one!

And a very Happy Father’s Day to all you wonderful dad’s out there!

      • I read the book twice: I started with the abridged, but honestly did not feel like a masterpiece: knew it was missing something.

        Then the unabridged. I read two summers ago, the same summer I saw the show in London. My family was going to England over the summer so my mom took me to see Les Mis. It took me less than one summer to finish it: it helped me that I set a deadline to finish the book by the time summer ends and used the musical to help.

        Like you, the musical is also one of my favorites. Les Mis made a huge impact on my musical journey. It was unlike anything I had ever seen before. It told me that tragic musicals exist and that heartbreak is a musical emotion


Sit down and share a cuppa with me. Let's discuss.
