TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
As much as I love romance in the books that I read, sometimes books can still be amazing and memorable without it. This week we have to feature ten book on friendship that we really enjoyed.
1. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
I don't think it come as any surprise that the Fellowship comes out on top in this list. The Lord of the Rings is my favourite book of all times and the strength of the friendship among the Fellowship is amazing.
2. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
This doesn't require any explanation. Friendship plays a huge role in all seven books and although there are pairings within the series, romance was never a huge factor in the story.
3. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Of course, this book contains so much more but the friendships between Liesel and Rudy, and that between Liesel and Max, are so beautifully simple and plays such a stark contrast to what's going on in the bigger picture of the world that I absolutely adored it to pieces.
4. Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
One of my favourite novels while growing up, this book almost moved me to tears with how beautiful it is.
5. My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
Heartbreaking and thought provoking, whether or not you enjoy Jodi Picoult's writing style, this novel raises a lot of ethical questions that I think everyone should have a think about (I may be slightly biased from my medical background).
6. Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta
An amazing YA novel on so many conflicting aspects of growing up and finding oneself. While there is a romantic element to the story, I still really enjoyed the friendships in this novel too.
7. Black Beauty by Anna Sewell
Human nature and friendship - I absolutely loved this story whilst growing up.
8. Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan
The friendship between Percy, Annabeth and Grover is just so strong throughout the whole series, through thick and thin.
9. Tomorrow, When the War Began series by John Marsden
Friendship plays such a strong role in this series - all varying aspects of it gets showcased. I have always meant to come back to this series and finish it but I just haven't had the time yet.
10. Babe: The Gallant Pig by Dick King-Smith
Dogs. Pigs. Sheep. Humans. This book has them all and how friendship can transcend species.
