Top Ten Tuesday: Books About Friendship

1. Open Road Summer by Emery Lord
I'm sure this book will be on everyone's list, but it's definitely one of the most recent titles that has a big focus on friendship. (And psst, my BFF and I were in the book trailer - we appear at the 0:32 mark on the right!)

2. Smart Girls Get What They Want by Sarah Strohmeyer
I found that one of the biggest themes in SGGWTW is friendship.  Gigi, Bea, and Neerja support each other through thick and thin.

3. Better off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg
For those of you who've read Better off Friends, you know that Macallan and Levi's friendship starts to become something more, but they're first and foremost best friends and I think it's important to be best friends with your significant other.

Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)
4. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Anna is primarily a romance, but I definitely found that the different friendships and what happened to them were just as important as Anna and St. Clair's romance.

5. Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando
I loved watching the friendship between Lauren and Elizabeth develop.  It hit several bumps in the road, but I think they probably became very close once they actually became roommates.

6. The Mother-Daughter Book Club series by Heather Vogel Frederick
To me, what MDBC revolves around mainly is the relationships - familial, platonic, and romantic.  I really enjoyed reading as the girls became friends

7. Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter
Cammie Morgan would be dead, were it not for Bex, Liz, and Macey.

8. Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson
I was still reading Since You've Been Gone while writing this post, but it definitely fits the bill.  Sloane is pretty absent so far, except in flashbacks, but she's mentioned a lot, and I really feel like her friendship with Emily is real and special.  Thankfully, none of my close friends have just disappeared like Sloane did.

Okay, wow, only eight books this week.  Hopefully I'll find some more books about friendship when I explore other bloggers' lists!

  3. Why do I get the strange sensation to throw up my fist in solidarity when you mentioned the Gallagher Girls series? How odd…

  4. I love Anna and the French Kiss so much! I haven't read Lola and the Boy Next Door yet though. I have heard really good things about Since You've Been Gone; I really need to buy a copy of that soon and finally read it. Thanks for sharing. :)
