Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.
It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This weeks topic is Top Ten Platonic Relationships In Books (friendships, parent/child, siblings, family, etc.)
1 The Weasleys & Harry Potter – Harry Potter
by JK Rowling
I’m currently listening to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Mrs. Weasley and Bill turned up as Harry’s ‘family’ and it’s just so lovely!
He’d barely had a conversation with her and then she goes and sends him a Christmas jumper his first year. He loves they way they sort of adopt him and it’s just fantastic!
2 The Quinn’s – Chesapeake Bay saga
by Nora Roberts
These guys aren’t REALLY brothers, but they’re seriously brothers.
I love Nora’s series’ because the family relationships are always far more interesting but I think this is certainly one of THE BEST I’ve read.
3 Sally and Jim – Sally Lockhart
by Philip Pullman
I love these two because he sort of sees her, decides she’s a decent sort and then they kind of become siblings.
They’re made from the same stuff and generally this means they get into the same sort of trouble…
4 Lucy and Edmund – Narnia
by CS Lewis
I chose these two because I think their relationship has the best development and Edmund grows the most as a person.
He seems to low-key hate his younger sister when we first meet them, but later, he’s her biggest supporter.
5 Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect – THGTTG
by Douglas Adams
(The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy)
They’re best friends, but I’m not sure they actually like each other very much.
They can’t seem to get rid of each other though and it’s funny.
