Hosted by the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish.

~Top Ten Books About Friendship~


Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)
1. Harry Potter series by JK Rowling

An obvious choice, but the friendship between the trio is just as magical as the world itself.

Romancing Mister Bridgerton (Bridgertons, #4)
2. Romancing Mr. Bridgerton by Julia Quinn
Penelope Featherington and Eloise Bridgerton
A great example of female friends who are devoted to one another from childhood to adulthood.

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)
3. Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead
Rose Hathaway and Lissa Dragomir
A rare YA series where the main focus is a pair of friends rather than a romance though that is there too.

Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs (Jane Jameson, #1)
4. Jane Jameson series by Molly Harper 
Jane Jameson and Zeb Lavelle
Shows that a man and woman can have a platonic (not romantic at all) friendship.

Annabelle Peyton, Lillian Bowman, Daisy Bowman, Evie Jenner
A group of wallflowers who band together to help each other find husbands in Victorian England.

Eve Dallas, Delia Peabody, Mavis Freestone
A hilarious, poignant friendship between a homicide detective, a cop, and a con artist turned pop star.

Pride and Prejudice

Elizabeth Bennet and Charlotte Lucas
A classic that shows the importance of female companionship even in Regency-era England.

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)
8. Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer
Linh Cinder and Iko
This is a unique friendship between a cyborg and the android that she built.

Neanderthal Seeks Human (Knitting in the City, #1)

A group of intelligent, career-focused women who meet weekly to drink wine and attempt knitting patterns.

The Duchess War (Brothers Sinister, #1)

Four liberal-minded (especially for the Victorian era) people who are just trying to make the world a better place.

  1. I cannot believe I forgot to include Penelope and Eloise! They totally should be on this list. Same for the Wallflowers. I love how they try to come to Evie's rescue in Devil in Winter. Actually, I'm totally craving a re-read of Devil in Winter.

  3. I love your picks! You know, I left out Romancing Mr Bridgerton because the focus was on Penelope and Colin, but you're right; it's a great example of long-term female friendship. Ditto the Wallflowers series, which I also love. And of course the HP books made my list, too! Cinder is another great choice that I should have put in.
