[Top Ten Tuesday: Books About Friend-Ships]

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly linkup hosted by The Broke And The Bookish!

Sure it's great to have romances in books. I'm a huge shipper, but I love when when I get to ship a friendship too!  There are so many awesome ones out there, but I had to pick my top ten. So here they are.

The Friend-Ships That I Love!
 Sloane Jacobs and Sloane Jacobs from "Being Sloane Jacobs" by Lauren Morrill: This book was Parent Trap on ice! Best idea ever! Sloane and Sloane are so different, but they end up really being there for each other and forming a cool friendship out of weirdness.

Maddie and Julie from "Code Name Verity" by Elizabeth Wein: Talk about a tear-jerker of a friendship. These girls really show what true friendship looks like in all of it's forms. I can't even imagine. I just can't.

Rose and all The Rabbits from "Rose Under Fire" by Elizabeth Wein: Wein sure knows how to make real friendships between women in the middle of war. Once again, get your box of tissues ready.

Lela and Nadia from "Sanctum" by Sarah Fine: Lela literally goes to hell and back for Nadia. If that doesn't say bffs, I don't know what does.

Rosie, Matty, Spencer and Logan from "How My Summer Went Up In Flames" by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski: I loved this book because it focuses of friendships between boys and girls. Rosie and the boys learn a lot from each other over the course of their road trip and I loved their antics!

Wynne and Odessa from "Deliver Me" by Katie Jarvik Birch: These girls have such a tight knit friendship. So much happens over the course of the book and somehow they manage to still maintain their sister like bond.

Anna and Elise from "Dangerous Girls" by Abigail Haas: Every friendship list needs the fucked up friendship and this one takes the cake. Seriously, if you've read the book, you know what I'm talking about.

Becky and Rocher from "Gorgeous" by Paul Rudnick: These girls are hilarious and foul mouthed and perfect. I couldn't stop laughing at the words that came out of their mouths. I think I'd be friends with both of them.

Carmen, Lena, Tibby and Bridget from "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" by Ann Brashares: I think this was one of the first books that I ever read that really focused on friendship and I adore it and the rest of the series.

Roman and Boaz from "The Sound of Us" by Ashley Poston: A male duo needed to be on this list and I couldn't think of a better pair then these two. They are kind of the male version of Becky and Rocher and once again, I think I'd be best buds with them.

Well there's my list!  What's on yours?  I wanna know.  Leave your link below or tell me in the comments!

Great list! I read Brashares' scifi book and while I didn't care for it I did like her writing so I definitely need to go back and read Traveling Pants. How My Summer Went Up in Flames sounds like a really fun book too.
