There’s one thing I love to see in books, sometimes even more than the romances themselves, and that is: a good bromance! I mean, seriously, is there anything better than watching/reading about friendshio? Especially between 2 guys? I think it’s magical :D.
1. Will & Jem – The Infernal Devices
Will and Jem are the definition of bromance. They are more than brothers. The way they love each other is epic!
2. Jace & Alec – The Mortal Instruments
Like good parabatai, the bond between these two is beyond words… now, I just wish that the show would do it justice.
3. Dorian & Chaol – Throne of Glass
I loved this friendship in the first book and I hated that Chaol’s relationship with Celaena made a dent in it. Luckily, it is all good now, right?
4. Harry & Ron – Harry Potter
Even fighting sometimes, they always had each other’s backs.
5. Tamlin & Lucien – A Court of Thorns and Roses
The way Lucien makes fun of Tamlin… LOL! These two are adorable!
6. Aedion & Rowan – Queen of Shadows
They are hostile for a moment there, but they develop a true bond and it’s beautiful.
7. Seth & Ryan – Second Chances
What Seth and Ryan go through during the two books of this series clearly shows the love that exists between them… #goals!
8. Garrett, Logan, Dean & Tucker – Off-Campus
One of the funniest and greatest part of The Deal was watching the relationship between the 4 friends and roommates. I sill have to read the other 2 books that are already out, but they are awesome together.
9. Thorne & Kai – The Lunar Chronicles
Thorne and Kai share a wonderful moment in Winter that made them apt to join this list. I wish we had some more moments of bonding between the guys, but one can always imagine them :D.
10. Simon & Clive – Wallbanger
I’m cheating here, but come on, can you really blame me? Clive is the most awesome cat ever! And he bonds with Simon just like a person. I mean, Simon puts him on the counter to watch him cook, and goes retrieve him so he can sleep with the… it’s cute as hell!

I am astonished that I actually haven’t read all that many books from the list. I want them to do Jalec justice on the show as well though. Why is it so much easier to find good bromances than it is to find girl-girl-friendships 😦
i don’t know, but it is, it so is. I had this list at 10 while I was still trying to find 5 females… 😦
That fact makes me really sad …
Haha I love this, I can’t say no to a bromance either. I think my favourite literary bromances have got to be Gimli and Legolas though ❤ I am just a sucker for Lord of the Rings. I also love the brotherhood in The Raven Boys.
i haven’t read the lord of the rings yet, but I do love them in the movies 😀
I agree with every single one I’ve read, which surprisingly is almost everyone. I even agree with Simon and Clive and I haven’t read that book yet 🙂
I just need the bond between Jace and Alec to work in the show. Right now I really don’t like Jace because he keeps being rude to Alec and it shouldn’t be like that
to be fair, Simon and Clive was totally your idea! 😀
yeah, I need them to fix Jace on the show 😦
I know. Sometimes I’m a genius XD
Me too. I can’t understand how the main characters of the show (Clary and Jace) are the worst. I really don’t like them
yep =/, it’s kind of sad that we want them gone, right? or at least not in the same scene together… eheh
I want this to be the Malec show with appearances of Simon and Izzy. Clace can leave to another country
they can go to Idris. lol. btw, I was saying Idris wrong the whole time. same as seraph blades… i feel dumb
I don’t know if you were. I saw a lot of people saying that’s not how Idris is said
LOL, but I guess they consulted with Cassie for the names and stuff, right?
I don’t know. I’ll keep saying Idris like I always said it
lol. you know, I still can say Chaol right… lol
I normally can’t say any weird name right but I got used to that
Jem and Will together are Bromance-ship goals! ❤ I could not love them separately as much as I love them together.
Great post 🙂
😀 they’re awesome! perfect!
The parabati tracking is the worst part. I can’t take the bromance seriously when they’re just forcing it on us! Also, why are the fighting so much 😦
the fighting makes me sad! sure, alec is sullen in the books, and Jace is totally irresponsible, but they always have each other’s backs 😦
YES! Exactly TT.TT
Hey I nominated you for a tag:) https://meganqm1.wordpress.com/2016/02/15/the-book-fangirling-blog-award/
thank you 🙂
As soon I started reading this post, the music Bromance by Nigahiga Ft. Chester See started playing in 8Tracks ahah Plus, I think you spoiled Throne of Glass a little bit, it’s okay though 🙂
I love bromances, specially Percy Jackson and Jason Grace and if we’re talking about TV shows, Stiles and Scott from Teen Wolf will always be the definition of bromance.
oh boy! was it the Celaena/Chaol thing? sorry! With 4 books out, I assume everyone has read them =/. Did you watch Psych? Shawn and Gus are bromance perfection
yeah it was it! I’ve just entered the book community and I only got the first book a few days ago :p It’s ok though!
No, I haven’t watched it, what is it about?
It’s about a guy that can read situations pretty well, so he pretends to a psychic and helps the police. It’s a TV show comedy, it was hilarious
oh, it seems like something I’ll like, I’ll check it out! 🙂
Heronstairs is like the ultimate brotp! I haven’t find any bromance that could compete with them, they’re so beautiful<3 And also Chaol and Dorian, even though I only have read Throne of Glass, but I really love their dynamic and friendship 😀
Will and Jem are perfect, in every single way!
I love Chaol and Dorian too… there’re a few moments up ahead when you clearly see just how much they mean to each other 😉
You’ll have to read The Driven Series by K. Bromberg because the Bromance between Colton and Becks is cute!
I need to check that out 😀
Oh you must! One of my favourite series. 🙂
OMG hahahaha Simon and Clive! So true!
:D, those last few interactions between the 2 of them are beyond cute
The last chapter though! 😍
i laughed so much… “the feeder and the tall one”, lol
So many awesome bromances! My favourite is probably Will and Jem, but I love Jace and Alec (and I completely agree, I don’t like their relationship on the show. Jace is treating Alec in a way he would never treat him in the book), Harry and Ron and Dorian and Chaol too of coure ❤️
I hope they fix the relationship between alec and jace on the show 😦
I love this- I particularly like Aedion and Rowan!
I love both of them :D, and them together is perfection
yeah exactly- I love their rivalry as well
oh yeah :D, such 2 alpha males, so much fun to read them
yeah exactly- they’re two of my favourite characters in the whole series
I almost love bromances more than I love general romances! Especially Will and Jem – those two are precious and thinking about them makes me want to cry a little! And Jace and Alec too; they’re great and I remembered loving their friendship.
Will and Jem will forever be my favorites 😀 ❤
Simon and Clive forever! ♥
You simply cannot go wrong with a good bromance. I absolutely adored the Thorne/Kai moment in Winter and wished we got some more of them. My favourite bromance has to be my Raven Boys. Gansey, Adam, Ronan and Noah all have such a distinct identity but they always have each others backs. 😀
i need to read that book then :D. that moment between Kai and Thorne was kind of perfect, I wish they bonded more too
I love this list! I totally agree with simon and clive! 😀
😀 they’re the best 😀
