Ten Books About Friendship

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fab ladies at The Broke and the Bookish!

1.  I absolutely love the platonic friendship between Thatcher and Fiona in The Blue Bistro.  My favorite book of hers and the BEST beach read!!

2.  Even though Firefly Lane is super sad, it really is about friendship and a pretty amazing friendship, at that!

3.  I loved The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes and it involves a super strong friendship and redemption.

4.  Even though the House of Night series jumped the shark after the sixth or seventh book, what drew me to the series in the first place was the friendship between Zoey and the other members of her circle, especially Damian and Stevie Rae.

5.  Jennifer Crusie's books almost always have awesome friendships in them and Bet Me is my favorite.

6.  The friendships in The Secret History may be a bit . . . unusual . . . but I always loved how close the group was, even in the end.  

7.  No better (more intimate?) friendship than The Raven Boys!  

8.  You know you have a good friend when, like in The Liar Society, they try to find your killer, even at their own peril!

9.  Things I Can't Forget addresses a question we all have faced:  what do you do when you friend does something that you fundamentally disagree with -- do you shun them or help them?

10.  In Left Drowning, no one needs friends more than Blythe.  And, boy, does she get a whole family of them!


  1. I agree, I'm so over the House of Night books, but the friendship between Zoey and Stevie Rae is something really great. I've just added Left Drowning to my TBR list after reading that goodreads link. It sounds amazing.

  2. Oh, Left Drowning is a brilliant choice! Blythe does get some amazing friends. Great list!

  3. Great list. I agree with you about the House of Night series. That's one good group of friends.

  4. Firefly Lane is a wonderful choice -- forgot about that one! Great list!

  5. I almost put Secret History on my list as an example of a friendship that goes wrong--I 'm glad to see that several bloggers did include it!

    1. HA! I should have called it a book about friendship gone wrong -- that's a really good description!!

  6. I want to read the Jessica Park book. Things I Can't Forget looks interesting too and this is the first I have heard about it. Going to check it out on goodreads... thanks for sharing!

  7. I love Jennifer Crusie! I looooooove Agnes and the Hitman, I've read it so many damn times. Have you read that one?
    Also, can you email me what happened in Shark Bait book 3? I'm curious...

  8. Oh, Left Drowning is a fantastic choice!! I didn't even think of that. Such a great list! :)

  9. The only one on your list I have read is The Raven Boys - I will have to check the others out!

  10. Yay for The Raven Boys! I seriously can't get over how well written and epic their friendships are. Book #1 knocked my socks off....but I could NOT read book #2 fast enough. (Plus the writing is sooo beautiful.) And I love how Blue is in the mix. And it's not ALL about the romance. It's like about raising the dead and stuff. SO MUCH AWESOME.
    Thanks for stopping by mine!

  11. Great choices. I've read a couple of these and I really enjoyed them to.

Review: History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

Blurb from Goodreads:
Linda has an idiosyncratic home life: her parents live in abandoned commune cabins in northern Minnesota and are hanging on to the last vestiges of a faded counter-culture world. The kids at school call her 'Freak', or 'Commie'. She is an outsider in all things. Her understanding of the world comes from her observations at school, where her teacher is accused of possessing child pornography, and from watching the seemingly ordinary life of a family she babysits for. Yet while the accusation against the teacher is perhaps more innocent than it seemed at first, the ordinary family turns out to be more complicated. As Linda insinuates her way into the family's orbit, she realises they are hiding something. If she tells the truth, she will lose the normal family life she is beginning to enjoy with them; but if she doesn't, their son may die. Superbly-paced and beautifully written, HISTORY OF WOLVES is an extrao…
