TTT: Platonic Relationships In Books!!

This was super hard to narrow down, cause I normally drawn towards these types of relationships in books, because I am a only child my self and always wanted a sibling! But enough about me, lets talk about the books!!

  1. Harry and Hermonie and (Ron)

This list would not be the same without this ‘trio” I know eventually Ron and Hermonie get together but this series as always hung on their friendship and I always wanted to go on adventure with them. They really became each other chosen family and that just puts a smile on my face. So many of my favorite friendship moments come from this trio including:

  • troll in the dungeon
  • Are you a witch or not
  • We will go anywhere with you
  • The chess scene in book one 🙂

2.  Clary and Simon (Mortal Instruments) 

Unknown.jpegi

I  really love clary and simon friendship throughout the whole Mortal instrument series. The beginning romance still makes me want to toss my book across the room and I often struggle to re-read those books! But after book 3 I really love their friendships so much. They def become found family and I really love their dynamics so much! I really was heartbroken at the end of the city of heavenly fire but was thrilled with tales of there shadow hunter academy. I found this relationship to def be at the hear of this series and really hope we get to see them again together in lord of shadows!!

3. The Unlikes by Carrie Firestone:

Unknown-3.jpeg

I read this book last year and really found this group of friends to be so awsome. There was hints of romance in the book, but this book def focused more on friednshio for the characters. I really loved how they had a mission and just how they all interacted in this book, this was def a group of friends, I would want to join!

4. Pushing the limit series! 

Unknown-5.jpeg

I also really loved the various couples and friends that made this group of friedns in this series! This book series def deals with harder topics but I really loved all the friendships and realtiosnhips that came out of this series. These characters are really so different but some how they just work totgether and out of came some pretty awsome realtionships and just friendship moments!

5. Darkest Mind Series 

Unknown-9.jpeg

In such a sad word with some much sadness and death. The friendship between Zu, Ruby, Liam and Chubs really made me smile in this book. I really love how much they go through but also how much they care about each other. This series is so sad, and so much bad things but the friendship def made me smile and I really adore these characters!

6. Runaways T.V show:

Books That Surprised me! (good or Bad) TTT

So I like this them a lot and i choose some books that have became my new favorites and some books that just let me down and did not make me like them or want to read more in this series!

The GOOD!!!

  1. Geekerella: Such a prefect romance but with so much more including fandom love, a cute dog and tears both good and bad! I read this book in two sittings and adored it!
  2. Pushing the Limits: This was the first ever pure romance book I read. I loved it. I loved how gritty the story was and how realistic it was. I feel so hard for all these characters and became so invested! If you are not romance reader but looking to read more books def check out this author various series!
  3. The clockwork scarb: I love retellings focused on various holmes myths. I loved the set up of this series and the focus on the two female leads! I really need to read book 4 🙂 But it was such a fun read and it was unexpected how much I liked it!
  4. Vampire Academy: I swore off any vampire themed novel but this one book turned me around Between the strong female characters and the amazing world building I was hooked!
  5. Everland: This book was such a fun read. I loved turning the wendy/ peter pan myth on its head. I thought it was such a fun read and really need to re-read and cont. on 🙂

The not so good

6. The Glittering Court: I just was not invested in either the plot or the characters. It was hard to root for the characters. I felt that world was not strong and I really struggled to read it. I think i would have like this series more if it had a fantasy element in the world like fairies etc.

7. Shatter Me: Ya this book screamed “darkest minds” and I could not look past that to see the story. I am not the biggest paranormal story girl but i stoped listening 20% and never went back.

8. Until Friday Night: The almost unhealthy relationship between the two leads made me struggle to read this book!

9. The darkest mine: I really struggled with this book between both the plot and the characters. I really hated the lead and did not care about the plot and struggled through it! I do hope i will enjoy more books by this author in the future.

The Best!

Unknown-12
