Top Ten Tuesday - Top Ten Books About Friendship

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly theme that is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish 

Welcome to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday. This week's topic is the top ten books about friendship.

So here are mine, in no particular order.

I was looking for the original trilogy not the Hobbit as part.

1. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien -  Specifically the parts with Frodo & Samwise

2. The Three Musketeers by Alexander Dumas - I was really thinking of the Disney movie when I came up with this one.

3. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants Series by Ann Brashares - follows four friends and a pair of pants

4. The Sisterchick Series by Robin Jones Gunn - I love these books. Each book is a new adventure of friendship.

5. The O'Malley Series by Dee Henderson - The friendships between Kate, Marcus, Lisa, Jack, Rachel, Stephen, and Jennifer are some that I've never seen anywhere else.

6. Frog & Toad Are Friends by Arnold Lobel - great books for young readers about friendships

7. True Friends (Christy Miller book 7) by Robin Jones Gunn -technically the whole series is about friendship, but in this particular book Christy learns just how special Katie is to her.

7. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling - actually the entire series, but in this one, Harry's two friends (Ron and Hermione) refuse to let Harry hunt down the remaining pieces that will all allow for Voldemort to be defeated once and for all by himself.

8. Sisters Ink by Rebeca Seitz - friends who scrapbook together. I've not actually read this one, but it's on my list.

9. Winnie the Pooh by AA Milne - I love Pooh. And his friends in the Thousand Acre Wood.

10. The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams - sometimes the best friendships are those of the child and the stuffed animal. I still have one of the stuffed animals I had from when I was a baby, and like the Velveteen Rabbit, my Pooh is real. Seriously, if you've not read this one, read it. It's a bit of tear jerker, but I love it.


  1. Love that you put The Three Musketeers on your list, Dawn (that Disney movie is a fun experience) and the Travelling Pants girls. They are fun in the movie, though I never read the books. And, of course, the O'Malley's. As I remember them, they were unforgettable. :)

    1. Yes the Three Musketeers. I keep seeing them running out at the end swords high and cloaks streaming behind them, and their motto "All for one and one for all"

      I actually enjoyed the Travelling Pants books better than the movie.

  2. Great choices. Harry Potter topped my list, I adore that series and it has so many wonderful friendships in it. I LOVE the LOTR friendships that I saw in the movies, if I had read the books then I am sure they would have made my list too. Nice list :) Here's my TTT.
