After doing the girl-guy and guy-guy version of bookish friendships, it was time to highlight some good girls BFFs in books. While trying to find some great friendships, I came to the conclusion that good girls BFFs are rarer to find in books than guys BFFs. Have you noticed that? Girls tend to start a book as best friends, but more often than not, something happens to change that status… it’s weird, and I fell sad about that. Either way, here are some good ones.
1. Cinder & Iko – The Lunar Chronicles
Am I cheating here because Iko is an android? Hmmm, I don’t think so! She’s very much a human in all that matters, and she and Cinder are awesome together.
2. Shazi & Despina – The Wrath & The Dawn
These two biker like hell, but ultimately they trust each other and have each other’s backs.
3. Sky & Six – Hopeless
Even while apart, Sky and Six went out of their way to stay close. I love how non-judgmental their relationship is, and that’s why they’re one of my favorites BFFs ever!
4. Aelin & Lysandra – Queen of Shadows
One of the best things introduced in QoS was the amazing friendship between these two strong fierce warriors. I can’t wait for book 5 :D.
5. Lizzie & Charlotte – The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet
I loved them on the show, I loved them even more on the book. They’re kind of perfect 😀 – and way better than the original friendship in Jane Austen’s book.
6. Beth & Jennifer – Attachments
Their emails are hilarious. There isn’t a single doubt that these two ladies are BFFs!
7. Cath & Reagan – Fangirl
This friendship took a while to develop, but ultimately the two very different roommates gave in and entered an unlike beautiful friendship.
I admit that I’m a bit depressed after writing this post. I need to read more books about awesome girls BFFs, without the drama of the book butting in said friendship… recommendations?!
