I’ve been looking forward to this topic. I know what true friendship is, thanks to many of these books. So, without further ado, check out my top 10 books about friendship (listed in no particular order).

betsy tacy mother daughter book club

1. Betsy-Tacy by Maud Hart Lovelace – Betsy and Tacy are so close they are called by one name, as if they are one person, or a package deal. The books follow these fast friends through their weddings.

2. The Mother-Daughter Book Club by Heather Vogel Frederick – A series about a group of girls who become friends by participating in a book club together. (Obviously a series after my own heart!)

winn dixie the help

3. Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo – A dog is a man’s best friend, is it not?

4. The Help by Kathryn Stockett – An inspiring novel about a group of women who are not supposed to be friends, but defy societal pressures and expectations.

5. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead – Rose is “bonded” to her best friend Lissa, which means she can listen to Lissa’s thoughts and experience Lissa’s emotions. I don’t know if it’s possible for a friendship to be stronger than that.

6. I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You by Ally Carter – Spies stick together. I love the friendship between the very different personalities of the Gallagher Girls books.

7. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater – These four boys are so close they’re like brothers.

8. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling – Harry, Ron, and Hermione – the golden trio. (Friendship is as simple as battling a troll together in the girls’ bathroom.) The Harry Potter books are about a lot of things, but I believe friendship is at the top of the list.

kite runner and snow flower

9. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini – Amir’s story is about his search for redemption and his desire to prove himself worthy of his friend’s unwavering loyalty.

10. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See – Lily and Snow Flower are a laotong pair, destined to be the best of friends. They share one another’s joys and tragedies, and their beautiful and tragic story is about discovering the true meaning of loyalty and love.

    My favorite favorite favorite friend book (which I believe I’ve told you about before ;)) is Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein.

      AHH! I really, really need to read it. I finally have it and I can’t even believe I haven’t started it yet!

    The Harry Potter series most definitely has one of the best friendships ever! I’ve heard really good things about the entire Vampire Academy series though I’ve only actually read the first book. I may have to buy them all and binge read them to see what all the buzz is about, and maybe check out the movie too. I’m glad to see that the Raven Boys made your list; I love Maggie Stiefvater’s Wolves of Mercy Falls series as well as her writing style, though I haven’t checked out her new series!

      Binge reading was definitely my response after reading the first Vampire Academy book. For once, I was lucky that all of the books in the series had been published! 🙂 I LOVED the Raven Boys…you should definitely check it out! Shiver, Linger, and Forever are currently on my TBR list. Thanks for commenting!
