It is time for part two of my 2018 wrap up. And in this, I’ll present to you cool friendships.
Iko & Cinder & basically everyone else (Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer)
I mean, the two of them are amazing. They each have their strength and they seem like puzzle pieces, that just fit together extremely well. And together with the others they are so cute and lovely and every single one of them has a role. They know each other so well and just feel so much love for each other.
Ia & Brinn (Ignite the Stars by Maura Milan)
Those two. They start off as enemies, not trusting each other at all. But they get to know each other and their friendship grows slowly. But it’s strong because they already know their bad sides and they accept them and I just… I love hate-to-friendship so much. And Maura Milan writes the two of them so well.
The Ark (I was born for this by Alice Oseman)
They’re a band and they live together and even though not everything is always perfect, but they are always there for each other. They accept each other and help, they just know each other so well, their good and bad sides. The three have such a realistic friendship with ups and downs and mending and crying and hating and helping. I love them.
Juliette & Kenji (Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi)
Kenji and Juliette probably have one of the funniest friendships. Their banter is hilarious, their sarcasm is right on point with my humor. But they still know each other well and try to protect the other. They’re close without any romance and their friendship is so relatable.
The Spinster Club (Spinster Girls by Holly Bourne)
Those three girls are so different, but nevertheless there are things that tie them together, experiences they make together. They can talk about anything, even though they have to jump over their own shadow. And some things need time, but they still know they can count on the others.
The Throne of Glass group (Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas)
I didn’t know how to call them. Maybe I love all of them so much because they have been with me for years and years. But I also think that they are each unique and have special abilities that make them whole as a group. They know each other long and well enough to be like a family, with everything that comes with it. Love and hate and banter and stress and that wonderful sense of not being alone.
Thos were my favourite friendships I read about in 2018. What were yours?
