Top Ten Tuesday | Platonic Relationships in Books

Book Tag Header

Yay, I’m back from hiatus! I had an amazing couple of vacations, first to Hawaii and then to New York City and am ready to jump back into things! What better way than a Top Ten Tuesday…

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

The rules are simple:

  • Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.
  • Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
  • Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists.
  • Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.


Cinder and Thorne from The Lunar Chronicles

The brother/sister bond that these two have is the cutest thing I have ever seen. They seriously made Scarlet for me and didn’t let me down in Cress.

Aelin and Lysandra from Throne of Glass 

These two are #friendgoals for life. I won’t spoil KOA for anyone, but THESE TWO!!! Squad – assemble.

Mark & Emma in The Dark Artifices

I have more feelings about this series than possibly any other. Lord of Shadows gutted me and my saving grace was the sweetest relationship with Emma and Mark. Who doesn’t want Mark to crawl up next to their bed every night for comfort?

Victor & Sydney in Vicious

Yes, Victor is technically a bad guy. But he PICKS UP AN ABANDONED CHILD. How bad can he really be? Then, he takes care of her and tries so hard to keep her safe, all while getting incredible revenge. Hero in my book.

Cassian, Azriel & Rhys in A Court of Thorns and Roses

These three are the epitome of a bromance. It’s almost too much at times. I can just see them in a cabin crushing beer cans on their heads.

Griz and Lia in The Remnant Chronicles

Lia is the best so obviously everyone loves her and wants to save her, but it’s Griz, the giant, overbearing warrior who saves her and declares her his queen. All hail Queen Lia.

Ron & Harry in Harry Potter

The dynamic duo! What would we do without these two? Everything began with some chocolate frogs and we are so blessed! It does feel bad to leave out Hermione, but… what can you do?

Calixte & Thyon in Muse of Nightmares

I hated Thyon, until Calixte taunted him into becoming a real human being. Bless her for saving him and injecting him with some personality. I adore this friendship!

Zera and Malachite in Bring Me Their Hearts

Who better to handle the sarcastic and sassy Zera, than a sidekick with equal sarcasm and the ability to deadpan like nobody’s business?

  1. Awww!!! Griz ♥♥♥ His name fits him so well. I love platonic relationships. I specifically wrote my book to tell a story about a boy and girl that are just friends because I’ve had so many boy-friends and that’s all we were. Friends. And I appreciate that so much. Love this list.

    Welcome back!!! I can’t go past any human-dog friendship, the most pure and wonderful kind ❤️ The only downside is that writers INSIST on always killing off the dog, and I’m emotionally devastated for weeks afterwards 😭😭😭

        There should be some kind of warning-system bot for dog-lovers. They could build it into Goodreads, like THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR YOU, DO NOT READ!
