Friendship is Important (#BroodyWeek)

Broody Week is a bit like Shark Week. But with less teeth and blood and more dazzling orbs and tousled manes. And it's come about because life has gotten in the way of my BroodyBFF duties, which is very sucky, because I love Broody.

I love a good friendship in fiction. They usually come secondary to the plot and are parts of the characters themselves, but they can make or break a book for me. Some of my favourite friendships are those between siblings.

Pirates! by Celia Rees
Nancy and Minerva are more than friends, it's like they share a soul (and for good reason) and I could read about their lives and adventures forever.

All Of The Above by Juno Dawson
I loved how this friendship group felt exactly like my own teenage friends. I loved how everyone interacted, how they came together, and how everything wasn't rosy and perfect.

One Italian Summer by Keris Stainton
They may be sisters but they are also friends. Being friends with my own two sisters, this book really hit home in so many ways. From the laughs to the tears, the jokes to the arguments, I was on board for all of it and it felt so incredibly real.

Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne
The Spinster Club - are they not friendship goals? The trio have the most amazing friendship, supporting each other through all of their ups and downs.

Tuesday and her mum aren't just mother and daughter - they're friends. I love their antics and the way their relationship comes through even on blog posts and comments.

What's your favourite Fictional Friendship?

  1. Aaah! I love this book list. I ashamedly just realized I don't truly think about the fictional friendships when reading about them in books. They take the backseat in most books these days. Am I Normal Yet (Spinster Club) sounds so great. I'm going to put that on my list of books to come.

  2. I think mine has to be Harry, Ron and Hermione in Harry Potter as even though it's not my fav series, their friendship is goals.
