Top 10 Tuesday: Favorite Platonic Relationships in Books


We all love a good romance, but we rarely celebrate the other, non-romantic relationships that many books have.  This week’s theme from That Artsy Reader Girl is all about our Favorite Platonic Relationships.

Kate and Tully from Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah

I love their life-long friendship, and all of the trials they dealt with only made them a stronger pair.  They were so different and yet completed each other.

The Grant Family from Save the Date by Morgan Matson

I want to be a Grant.  Their family dynamic was so endearing and amazing, and I couldn’t get enough.  I loved the focus on family in this book.

Rhys, Azriel, and Cassian from A Court of Thorns and Roses Series by Sarah J. Maas

The best trio of bros you could ask for.  Each one of them is unique and they have their differences, but they work so well together.

Sookie and Pam from The Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris

Sookie and Pam’s relationship is so weird, but I love it.  Seeing it progress throughout the series was really fun and their banter is hilarious.

Bridget, Carmen, Lena, and Tibby from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares

This series was one of the first series I really fell in love with, and these girls feel like a part of my family.  I love how all four of them are so different but are soul mates all the same.

Kvothe and Auri from The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

Their relationship is so sweet and strange, you can’t help but love it.

Kelsea and The Mace from the Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

The Mace was my favorite character in this series, and his fatherly care of Kelsea mixed with his gruffness was the perfect combo.  Their relationship was loving and perfect.

Jamie and Fergus from The Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon

I love how Jamie took Fergus into his family.  Their father-son relationship is amazing and continues to grow in each book.

George and Lennie from Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

Ugh this book wrecked me.  George and Lennies tragic friendship is just incredible.

Harry and Hermione from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

How could I not include Harry and Hermione?

  1. Ahhh fantastic choices! I love Harry & Hermione – obviously haha, but I also loved the Grant family so much. Their dynamics made me smile as I read and I just want to be part of their family, too, haha 🙂
