  1. Tywin Lannister! I picked that paragon of non- virtue as well lol. The other ones I don't know for the most part, but looks like a great list!

  3. Great list, we agree on Mr Weasly and that terrifying man from the Shining. I thought about the Lolita one but as I just can't bring myself to read the book didn't, but totally agree, it just makes me cringe.

  5. Arthur Weasley is the best. And Charlie Swan had the patience of a saint because I'd have smacked Bella by chapter 3. LOL

  7. Why did you have to go and mention Sirius, now I'm going to be crying all day. I almost put Lupin on my list, but it still stings...it still stings! Great list!

  12. So many great picks on your list! Arthur Weasley is a great father, so funny, I love him in the film too. As for Jack Torrance, considering how terrifying he was in The Shining, it's no wonder that he's included in the worst dads section!

  13. I haven't "met" him in the books, but will admit I like Luke in the Shadowhunters TV show! (Or what I saw of it.) Typing out "Luke" also reminds me of Luck Dane from Gilmore Girls. He wasn't Rory's dad, but I did love their all-too-rare scenes together. :)

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland!
