Top Ten Books About Friendship

(TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

I love to read books about friendship way more than love stories. All these books have some great friendship going on between wonderful characters!



The Theory of Everyhing by Kari Luna

“That was what having a best friend was about – being honest and sharing everything, even the bad things.”



The Choas Walking series by Patrick Ness

“It’s always nice when two people who don’t got no one else find each other as friends.”



Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.”


The Maze Runner series by James Dashner

“Kill Me. If you’ve ever been my friend, kill me.”



 Wonder by R.J. Palacio

“It’s not enough to be friendly. You have to be a friend.”



The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

“Gansey could’ve had any and all of the friends that he wanted. Instead he had chosen the three of them, three guys who should’ve, for three different reasons, been friendless.”


The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour

“Searching, always. And yes, we all are, or soon will be, disenchanted, I still want to know it all: the heartbreak, the fear, the friendship, the anger, the love. All of it.”



The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

“A snowball in the face is surely the perfect beginning to a lasting friendship.”



Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

“I wish friends held hands more often, like the children I see on the streets sometimes. I’m not sure why we have to grow up and get embarrassed about it.”


Insignia by S.J. Kincaid

“He began to understand suddenly what friends were for: they reminded you that things weren’t so bad after all. Reminded you never to stop laughing at yourself.”
