Ten Books About Friendship


Kindred spirits - Anne Shirley and Diana Barry. Need I say more?


Jack Baker and Early Auden had an odd and sometimes tense friendship, but Jack truly learned to appreciate Early by the end of the book.


By being forced to trust her friends, M.T. learned a great deal about herself and others.


Greg Heffley and Rowley Jefferson prove that sometimes you need a goofy friend around to make you feel better about your own plight?


 Nikki Maxwell couldn't make it through her days at the snobby private middle school she attends without her BFFs Chloe and Zoey. They help her keep a sane head around Mackenzie Hollister and the rest of the CCP (Cool, Cute & Popular) kids.


If  Katniss has to hunt to feed her family, at least she gets to do it with her swoon worthy best friend, Gale. And though she isn't one for getting close to people, her friendship with Rue is one of the most touching parts of this series.


Friendship Bread proves that friends are just about the best thing in the world.


Friends that knit together, strike together. This book proves friendship and a good laugh go hand in hand.


Olivia Lockhart and Grace Sherman have a solid friendship that has faced a lot of challenges over the years.


Though IT is a horror story about a clown who preys on young children, at its heart, this book is about a group of friends who return to their hometown to stop a frightening beast. They beat it once as children and they are determined to come back and finish what they started now that they are adults and living very different lives.

Thanks for visiting, Jessica. It is definitely one of the scarier King books.

I only read THG off this list, but I agree about Katniss. For someone so distant, she really does care for Rue, and I loved that. :)
Good picks!

Cheryl said...

Thanks for stopping by, Ula. At least Collins gives us a little bit of good in all that tragedy.

I love how eclectic your list is! I thought about Anne of Green Gables (one of my favorite books ever, BTW), but didn't include it. In retrospect, maybe I should have! I haven't read any of your others, but know enough about several to appreciate why you chose them. Good list!

Charnell @ Reviews from a Bookworm said...

Great choices. The Hunger Games made my list too, that book has a lot of brilliant friendships in it. Nice list :) Here's my TTT.

I appreciate your visits Lark and Bookworm. Off to visit your sites.

I would never have thought to pick It for this list but it's true, the thing that stands out most from that scary tale is the power of friendship. Lovely mix of books on your list:)

Cheryl said...

Thanks for visiting Lucy. Appreciate you stopping by.

We have the same #1! I love Anne of Green Gables - it just IS friendship. I haven't read any of the Cedar Cove books but they're on my list. I look forward to this one. I forgot about Katniss and Rue's friendship as well as Katniss and Gale's. Great list!
