Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/ meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This weeks topic was actually a freebie, and so after recently finishing Crooked Kingdom I just had to choose to talk about some of my all time favourite fictional friendships. I always love when a book includes a great friendship, but I don’t feel like I ever really share my love for some of my favourites, and so today seemed like the perfect opportunity to do just that.
So here are ten of my favourite fictional friendships!
There is no way I could do this post without mentioning one of my favourite pair of best friends from one of my all time books. From the very first time Rudy walked with Liesel to school I was in love with the beautiful relationship between these two which never fails to make me smile.
Considering the first time we meet these guys we watch them beating someone up, they may seem like a pretty strange choice for one of favourite fictional friendships. However, we soon get to see just how strong their relationship is through their shared struggles and experiences as well as just how far they are all willing to go to help each other, and so I couldn’t not put them on this list.
These two are definitely a perfect example of opposites attract, in more ways than one, as their relationship begins to slowly grow and develop as they discover more about the other and are forced to rely on and support each other more and more.
You should have known that I couldn’t do a post like this without mentioning The Raven Gang. These guys are definitely one of my all time favourite friendships as they all struggle through so many different challenges together and support each other through all these strange and magical things, and just generally have such a beautiful relationship based on love and caring.
Now onto the group of friends who most definitely inspired me to do this topic this week. I just cannot get over the amazing dynamic and relationship all of these six have, the hilarious witty banter between them and just how much they truly care for and support each other through everything.
Everyone seems to adore these three, and so I was pretty sceptical about whether I was going to feel the same before reading The Infernal Devices. However, I am now fully converted as I just adore these three together and the amount of love and kindness between them all.
Another one likely influenced by the fact that I recently saw Love, Simon, but nonetheless I was a huge fan of this group of friends in the book. They were just so supportive of Simon and of each other despite having differences and conflicts along the way, and so I can’t wait to hopefully see some more of them in Leah On The Offbeat.
Another friendship also involved in a love triangle here, who I still adore despite all their problems and conflicts over the books that I have read so far. Even through all these, its still clear how much they really care for each other and want to help the other in any way they can, and so I can’t wait to continue this series to hopefully see more and more of their (hopefully!) restored friendship.
This friendship between a cyborg and an android is truly one of my favourites due to the humour they share and the care they show towards each other when they need to help each get through challenges together.
Finally, these two are another of my favourite pairs from one of my favourite books who again are just so supportive of each other through each of hardships and challenges they both face. From Ethan’s family taking Henry in, to his continued support of Ethan through his struggles with reading and writing and discovering his sexuality, these two just always had each other’s backs and never failed to help the other when they were in need.
