Daisy's Picks


1. Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando: So obviously I needed to list this because it's all about reaching out to someone you don't know yet but who will be your roommate and what may be the start to a beautiful friendship. It was also really cute.

2. The International Kissing Club by Ivy Adams: I totally adored this book! It's about 4 friends who all go off on their own adventures, but it's also about the friendship between them. I'm still hoping for a sequel!

3. Sometimes It Happens by Lauren Barnholdt: I adore Lauren Barnholdt's writing and this book is about a friendship gone wrong. I hadn't expected to like it as much as I did, but it was REALLY good!

Jen's Picks

4. All of the Harry Potter books: I don't this one even needs an explanation. Friendship is such an important element to the Harry Potter series!

5. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein: Seriously one of the best friendship books I have ever read. Maddie and Queenie are BFFs and somehow maintain a close friendship during WWII as they both are off doing brave things.

6. Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler: Anna and Frankie are best friends who are both grieving over the loss of Matt, Frankie's brother. I loved their friendship so much because they seem so real.

7. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins: New friends in Paris? Yes please!

8. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares: Four lifelong best friends separated one summer but they keep their bond by sharing a pair of jeans that they mail to each other.

Julia's Picks

9. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
The Lord of the Rings is more than just a friendship story, but at its heart, it’s all about friendship. Frodo and Sam of course, but even among all the members of the Fellowship, friendship is a strong theme.

10. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

Oh this book. I loved this book as a preteen. Coming of age and friendship I’d say go hand in hand as main themes of this novel. It didn’t recapture the magic when I read it post teen hood, but it was still a damn good book, and a damn good book about friendships.

So what about you guys? What are your favorite books about friendship?

  10. Code Name Verity was my Number 1 pick. Anna and the French Kiss is a great choice -- I missed that one! I didn't think about classics, but the friendships are what I love most about The Lord of the Rings.

  24. The Perks of Being a Wallflower! Friendship plays such a huge role in bringing Charlie 'out of himself', especially Sam and Patrick but also their wider circle of good friends. I wish I'd had a Sam and a Patrick in MY life as a teenage wallflower. I still wish I had them, actually! :)
