Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about book besties. As in, which fictional character would I love to have as a best friend in my life? And argh, this was actually quite difficult, because as much as I love friendships in books, I always tend to love them in groups. I love the friendships themselves and I just want in on that. But this time I thought about some singular characters I really want as my best friend, and I succeeded (mostly):

Let's Talk About Love by Claire Kann
  • Save
Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
  • Save

Alice from Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann

Alice screamed BFF-material to me. She’s so much fun and loves her pop culture so I can definitely see myself having a ton of fun with her.

Simon and Leah from Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda/ Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli

While I was reading Simon vs, I fell completely in love with the friendships in it, especially between Simon and Leah. I think it’s because they both reminded me a lot of myself when I was in highschool. I know I would have gotten along so well with these two in my highschool days, as well as today!

Radio Silence by Alice Oseman

ake It Til You Break It by Jen Nguyen

Geekerella by Ashley Poston

Frances and Aled from Radio Silence by Alice Oseman

They may be a two-for-one deal since they’re already eachother’s best friend, but I want in. They are both so incredibly smart and creative and I just need to be their friend and be inspired by their awesomeness. Plus, they are both so THERE for eachother and aww I’m in a puddle on the floor because I love me some epic friendships.

Mia from Fake It Till You Break It by Jenn P. Nguyen

I want a bestie I can share my kdrama obsession with. Mia seems just as addicted as me, so we’d be able to talk all about kdramas and Lee Jong Suk together.

Elle from Geekerella by Ashley Poston

Elle is not only the perfect amount of geeky, she’s also kind, creative and hardworking and I admire her a lot. I’d love to have her as a bestie so we could geek out and go to cons together, but perhaps even talk blog stuff!

The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
  • Save
lord-of-shadows-by-cassandra-clare

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
  • Save

Samwise Gamgee from The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

Is there anybody out there who’d be a more loyal friend than Samwise the Brave? I’d be honored to have him as my best friend. Plus, I may get some gardening tips, which -let’s face it- I could really use.

Julian from The Dark Artifices trilogy by Cassandra Clare

I know Julian is verry busy with shadowhunting duties, Emma and his family, but surely there’s room for a new BFF in his life too? Julian is just such a nice, caring, lovable character, who can also be incredibly fierce and ruthless when it comes to protecting his family, and those all just seem like such amazing best friend qualities. Plus, I could join in on those pancake breakfasts, right? Right?

Cath from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Not only do I think Cath and I would understand eachother’s anxieties perfectly, we’d also both be able to fangirl about beloved fictional characters. Perhaps she could even help me navigate the wonderful world of fanfiction, because it’s been too long since I read a really good one.

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abby Waxman
  • Save
To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
  • Save
The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
  • Save

Nina from The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abby Waxman

Obviously Nina and I could talk books all day long, but since I’m constantly trying to get more organised, Nina could also teach me all her planning and organisational tricks. I could hang out with her cat, Phil, and maybe even join in on her quiz-team fun?

Lara Jean from To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

I think I’d get along great with Lara Jean. We’re both introverted homebodies who are hopeless romantics. We can hold movie marathons and bake things together (or since I’m not much of a baker, I’d be her taste-tester at least.)

Leo from The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan

Leo is kind of like the funny best friend. But he’s so much more than just the funny best friend. He’s smart and loyal and sassy and brave and caring and he deserves so much and I’LL JUST BE HIS BEST FRIEND, OKAY?

Tell Me:
Which book character would you like TO HAVE as a best friend?
Any we have in common?

    I wasn’t a HUGE fan of Nina book but I was a huge fan of her and her friends and I would loveeee having her as a friend. Such a good pick. I would also adore Leah and Simon as friends.

    Love your description for Radio Silence. Hadn’t heard of it, but now I’m intrigued! Nina also definitely sounds like someone who’d be on my list.

    This is such a great list! So many sweet little cupcakes to get along with!
    Elle would be such a good friend to have! My gosh, just imagine all the squeeing and geeking out you could do with her!
    SAMWISE THE BRAVE GAMGEE WOULD BE, AND IS TO FRODO, THE BESTEST FRIEND EVER! The gardening tips.
    I didn’t think of them. I thought about all the cooking and food (ma boi knows his seasoning). But the GARDENING! We need those tips. Heck, I’ll take a year long education of it. (Sam would make a great teacher though??)
    Happy Reading! <3

      Haha yeah, Elle would be an awesome fangirling buddy and Samwise would just THE ABSOLUTE BEST! Haha, I could really use both his gardening and cooking tips, that’s for sure 😉
