Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Friendships

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post created by The Broke and the Bookish in 2010 and since 2018, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week is a freebie, so I’ve picked some of my favourite literary friendships. Most of them are pairs, as the most intense friendships are wont to be, but there are a few #squads.

Cato and Macro

The Eagle series by Simon Scarrow

The classic odd-couple pairing- but it works so well.

Harry, Ron, and Hermione

Harry Potter

Name a more iconic trio. I’ll wait.

Laurence and Temeraire

Temeraire by Naomi Novik

I’ve only read the first book in this series but I fell in love with this sweet mutually supportive relationship between a human and dragon.

Frances and Aled

Radio Silence by Alice Oseman

Nothing is better than when you find someone who just exists on the same wavelength as you. Platonic soulmates 4 life!

Apollo and Meg

The Trials of Apollo series by Rick Riordan

I love this friendship because there is absolutely no hint of romance, and it’s brilliant.

Sherlock Holmes and John Watson

Sherlock Holmes 

I like this friendship because it’s not always easy going (I’m not sure I would react to my best friend faking their death for three years) but it endures nonetheless.

Crowley and Aziraphale

Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

The classic, as a demon and angel we’re supposed to be mortal enemies but we’re both stuck on Earth for a few thousand years so eh, I guess we’re best friends. Also written by a real-life amazing friendship.

The Lockwood and co. gang

The Lockwood and Co. series by Jonathan Stroud

The definition of #squadgoals. Including Kipps and the Skull of course.

Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain

The Skulduggery Pleasant series by Derek Landy

This may be the most dangerous pair of friends to ever exist, but it’s worth it for the laughs and the tears.

Aramis, Athos, Portos and D’Artagnan

The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas

These friends always have each other’s backs, though it kind of sucks that D’Artagnan is left out of the title.
