top ten platonic relationships in books
posted by soe 1:44 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic asks about our favorite non-romantic relationships in literature. I’ve opted for friendship over family in my list:

  1. Harry and Hermione (Harry Potter series)
  2. Lupin and Sirius (Harry Potter series)
  3. Harry and Ron (Harry Potter series)
  4. Anne and Diana (Anne of Green Gables series)
  5. Jo and Laurie (Little Women — is this cheating, since we all know they should have ended up together?)
  6. Mary and Colin (The Secret Garden)
  7. The Walkers and the Blacketts (The Swallows and the Amazons)
  8. Ove and Parvaneh (A Man Called Ove)
  9. Agnieszka and Kasia (Uprooted)
  10. Charlotte and Mrs. Watson (The Lady Sherlock series — to be fair, Sherlock and Watson are a fantastic duo in pretty much every iteration of the characters/stories)

How about yours? What are your favorite platonic relationships in books?

Hah! I love that a third of your list are Harry Potter related. That series had some of the best friendships.
