*Gizmos Reviews* Top Ten Tuesday Features Ten Books About Friendship

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic and we all share our thoughts on that topic! I decided it was finally time to jump on board with this wicked fun meme!

This week topic is Top Ten Books About Friendship

1. Reunited by Hilary Weisman Graham - Yes, this is kind of a dysfunctional book. Yes, it is silly in almost every single way, BUT, I think the FRIENDSHIPS was the point of this book. Friendships lost, Friendship rekindled,

2. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein - I'm pretty sure that if you have read this book, you would have lost your mind just a wee bit. This is an emotional trip, with two of the best female characters you will find in Historical Fiction.

3. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead - Obviously, the friendship ties are between Rose Hathway and Lissa. It is what drives the story minus Rose's deep infatuation with Dmitri. 

4. Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling - Can you say Harry, Ron, & Hermoine? That is all you need to say!

5. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien - Sam and Frodo...nuff said.

6. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares - Carmen, Tibby, Lena, Bridget and a pair of pants.

7. Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells - I love settings with strong women and takes place in the South. This was also a movie, and it was truly fun.

8. Maybe One Day by Melissa Kantor - Zoe and Olivia, and a very tough subject to read about.

9. Mythos Academy by Jennifer Estep - Gwen, Daphne, Carson, Oliver, & Logan

10. Shadow Falls by C.C. Hunter - Kylie, Della and Miranda. Happy to see there's a spin-off coming soon!

  3. Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood is a great book about friendship. I agree the central relationship in Vampire Academy is the friendship between Lissa and Rose.

    1. I loved the movie as well. I bit on the silly side, but still it drove home the point of friendship. Haven't seen the VA movie yet, but I'll stick by recommending the books!

  4. Great list Shelley. I have Code Name Verity and the Harry Potter series on my list too. I think Code Name Verity is an incredibly powerful book about friendship.

  5. Numbers 9 and 10 were really good calls - I didn't even think of them when I made my list, but they definitely belong there with the other more obvious choices (Harry Potter, VA).
