I’m reading The Mistborn Trilogy and I’m loving the friendships in it. They just make my heart happy. So I started thinking about all of the other friendships that I’ve loved throughout the years. Here’s a list of some of my favorite book besties.
I will say I’m not including any from Mistborn since I haven’t finished the series. You never know what could change. I started the fantasy genre reading George R. R. Martin so I always expect betrayal. Even though I hope that doesn’t happen in Mistborn.
Manon and the thirteen
I couldn’t make this list without including Manon and the Thirteen, even though it hurts my heart. I loved this fierce bunch of women who secretly had great hearts. I loved this series, but I think the witches could have had a whole series to themselves. I would have totally loved that.
Spin and m-bot
I didn’t know if M-bot would technically count since he is an AI spaceship, but since I’m making the list I decided he does. Plus, he has more character growth that some human characters in other books I’ve read. He’s snarky, but loyal. I just love the dynamic between him and Spin.
And if you don’t feel like M-bot would count, then my default answer is Spin and Rig. I also really enjoyed their friendship. Brandon Sanderson is great at writing friendships.
Nella and Eliza
Nella and Eliza are more of a mentorship than a friendship. Nella meets Eliza and is a little skeptical of her at first, but then she comes to love her. I would have loved to see them have more time together, but the time that we did get was sweet.
Miss Peregrine’s Wards
Part of the fun of this book is the friendships that Jacob Portman makes. He meets all sorts of interesting people, and they have such a cute found family. I loved them all. It was like visiting old friends with each new book.
The Inner Circle
Sarah J Maas is also great at writing friendships, and I think the Inner Circle is some of her best work. More specifically the Bat Boys. I loved Rhysand, Cassian, and Azriel. They’re the foundation of the inner circle, and they are such great friends.
So those are a few of my favorite book besties. Tell me a few of yours in the comments.
