Top Ten Books to read if you're in the mood for some amazing friendships
Top ten tuesday is a weekly feature/ meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish. This weeks topic was one that I was unsure about for a while, as I had little idea what I could fill the blank with. But after some thinking, I finally decided to go back to one of my favourite things in books and recommend some books to read if you're ever if you mood for some pretty awesome friendships. Enjoy!
1) Anna and the French Kiss (or any Stephanie Perkins novel) - Despite these being romance novels, all of them also involve some great friendships, especially the first and last ones. I just remember how despite everything they were almost always there for each other and how each character was unique whilst still fitting well with each other
2) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - One of my favourite things about this novel was the utterly amazing friendship between Rudy and Liesel and how they stood by each other throughout everything. I know I've said this so many times, but I just love how they grew up together and grew to depend and know each other so well.
3) The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky - A lot of this book in focuses on a wallflower finally finding his friends and so I couldn't not put it on here. I just like how none of the relationships between any of the characters is perfect but how they all accept each other nonetheless.
4) The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater - Despite this being only a recent read to me, I still knew I had to include this as I just adore the relationship between all of them in this book. I love how such unique and different characters manage to become friends and grow to depend on each other despite their differences.
5) Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson - Although this one focuses alot on coming out of your shell and finding your way on your own, it still has some great friendship elements and teaches how influential friends can be in your life but how you can still survive when one leaves.
6) We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach - I just love how close these four characters who are almost thrown together manage to grow and how they form new bonds even when new friends may seem like a pointless thing to make.
7) The Midnight Palace by Carlos Ruiz Zafon - For me, it's simply the dynamics and variety of characters in the friendship group in this one that makes it so good. I like how each character also seems to get an equal share and how you get to know all the friends both on their own and with the others.
8) I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak - Another recent one but one that includes one of my new favourite groups of friends. I just love how much they grow as people both together and individually and they learn to allow the others in and that they don't have to face things on their own.
9) Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green - The friendship between Will Grayson and Tiny Cooper is probably my favourite friendship from any of John Green's books, as they again just so different but still such good friends.
10) Revived by Cat Patrick - Finally, Daisy and Audrey are two of my favourite female friends as despite everything that is thrown at them, they still stick together and grow to be so strong. They just work together so well together and I love their friendship to pieces.
