TTT – Platonic Relationships in Books

Hello Humans! Welcome to yet another Top Ten Tuesday post, this week we’re exploring Platonic relationships (which I’m taking as ‘non-romantic’ relationships) so without further ado let’s get started.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and is an awesome way to discover new bloggers who like the same kind of books as you do!

All book covers should link to their respective Goodreads pages!

My Review

This book has some of the best female friendships I’ve come across in any book this year, it’s a great take on the ‘mean girls’ trope and it’s just fabulous.

heroine complex

My Review

Another great female friendship (also this book has demon cupcakes so really what’s not to like?)

My Review

There are a number of really great friendships in this book, I would seriously recommend checking it out if you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to be a GP for the dead.

Oh but there are so many great platonic (and non-platonic) relationships in Red sister, it’s a group of (albeit lethal) friends I would love to have.

Maurice and the mice, it’s a predator/prey friendship – who wouldn’t love that?!


My Review

I’m talking specifically about the friendship/mentorship between Victor and Sydney. I mean, no relationship is great in this book of villains but there’s is something that tugs at my heart strings.

Tess of the Road Rachel Hartman

My Review

The friendship between Tess and her Quitgul companion is another that just makes me happy.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone Laini Taylor

Karou and Zuze – did anyone doubt this would be on this list?

My Review

Read my review to find out more, but this book has one of the most lovely sibling relationships I’ve ever read.

Nevernight Jay Kristoff

My Review

Who could forget the magical bond between a girl and her murderous shadow cat?

Those are my ten picks – which relationships are/would be on your list? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. We must be reading-twins, cause our lists are so similar! Zuzana and Karou’s friendships is my absolute favorite and I love the girl squad in Undead Girl Gang so much! Lovely post 😊
