I love reading great friendships! Here’s a list of some of my favourites:


  1. August Pullman and Jack Will / August Pullman and Summer Dawson (Wonder)

  2. George Milton and Lennie Small (Of Mice and Men)

  3. Sabriel, Touchstone and Mogget (Sabriel)

  4. Lettie Hempstock & our unnamed narrator (The Ocean at the End of the Lane)

  5. Masako & Yoshie (Out)

I also like that most (all but one) of these friendships didn’t turn romantic and, if they did it wasn’t a pivotal part of the story, but an incidental thing that worked naturally with the story.


Of Mice & Men

Do you have any favourite friendships that you’ve read and just really love?

    Lettie and the narrator definitely had a great friendship going on, I gotta agree 🙂

      Ah thanks! Yes! Their friendship made the ending all the more difficult ;_; dang! And I loved that some background about it was provided and it felt so strong despite how slim the book was. So good.

  5. Masako and Yoshie – yes! Great choice.

    HMMMMM. Let me ponder this some…. your list is good. For me it’s:

    1. Harry & Ron (Harry Potter)
    2. Legolas & Gimli (LOTR)
    3. Mogget & everyone (Abhorsen series)
    4. Karou & Neek Neek (it’s Susana right? Too lazy to look it up) (Daughter of Smoke & Bone)
    5. Samwise & Frodo (LOTR)

      Aw I loved Legolas & Gimli in the film. I also LOVED Boromir and Faramir! A friendship strong enough to stand up to the crazy rivalry their father tried to create (based on what I saw in the films anyway…). But I haven’t read any of the books from the trilogy so I couldn’t rightly list those ones 😦
