5 Sets of Literary Best Friends I Admire

One of the reasons why I read the books that I read is that I like reading about relationships and friendships.  I've read a lot of awesome books over the years that feature awesome best friends and today I'm going to pick my top 5 literary best friendships and discuss them.  Let's get started.

1.  Mia Thermopolis & Lily Moscovitz from The Princess Diaries


Mia and Lily are an unusual pair.  They're very different from each other and honestly, over the course of the entire Princess Diaries series they have gotten into a lot of fights.  But they also have each others backs and that's one of the most important parts of friendships.

2.  Greg & Rowley from Diary of a Wimpy Kid


Greg and Rowley are BFF goals.  I'm not even kidding.  Haha.  Ok.  Maybe I'm kidding a little bit. But even though they get on each others nerves and get each other in trouble (ok, Greg gets Rowley in trouble with his crazy schemes) they always stay friends and that's a good trait.

3. Tibby & Lena & Bridget & Carmen from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants


A set of long distance friends!  These four friends are almost ALWAYS separated for the summer and yet they always make it through.  I love how different they all are, yet their differences aren't that big of a deal.  I think that's because a lot of their friendship has to do with their history and the fact that they all grew up with each other since they were in utero basically.

p.s.  I like this new cover so much better than the old book cover!  It's so cute!

4. Jessica & Hope from The Jessica Darling Series


These best friends prove that if a friendship means a lot to you, you can make it through long distance.  The Jessica Darling Series is 5 books long and so the first four books follow Jessica and Hope through a long distance friendship where they communicate through emails and letters.  In the fifth book, they're finally reunited and we get to read about both of them together.

5. Stephanie & Rachel & Allison in Just As Long As We're Together


This is a book that I read over and over again when I was in elementary school. To be fair, I'm pretty sure that I read all of Judy Blume's books over and over again.  But this was a fun one because it dealt with best friends and middle school and crushes.  All the good stuff.  I love the different details like Stephanie's poster of Benjamin Moore and Allison's wild stories that she tells and Rachel's love for music and the flute.  Middle school is filled with so much drama but these girls make it through.

Who are some BFFs that you admire?

Take care,
Marian
