I have been watching Top 5 Wednesday videos on YouTube for a while now. Top 5 Wednesday or T5W was created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey on YouTube.
The theme for this week is the top 5 friendships in books I have read. I had a pretty hard time picking these 5 friendship. I couldn’t for the life of me think of books with friendship that I liked. I will put the books in order from 5-1. One being the most favorite.
5. Quentin Jacobsen, Margo Roth Spiegelman & Friends
The first group of friends (technically two groups) are from the book Paper Towns by John Green. I loved the friendship between Quentin and Margo, even though Quentin was more of a friend than Margo. They didn’t spend a lot of time together but they knew that they could count on each other. There are also Quentin’s friends and Margo’s that unite in the end.
4. Charlie, Sam & Patrick
This group of friends are from the book The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Charlie is a shy and socially awkward boy. One day he meets Patrick and his step sister Sam. And with them he discovers the world. He gets out of his own shell.
3. Eleanor & Park
This pair of friends are from the book Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. Set in 1986, Eleanor and Park meet on the school bus. Coming from two different worlds they become friends. This is so sweet and complete friendship.
2. Cath & Levi
Cath and Levi are from the book Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. (She really has a gift for writing beautiful friendships). Cath is a very shy freshman at collage. She slowly becomes friends with her roommate, Reagan, and Levi, who she thinks is Reagan’s boyfriend. What is so special about Cath and Levi’s friendship is that he never really gives up on her when she is being difficult.
I also really liked the friendship between Cath and her twin sister, Wren.
1. Harry Potter, Ron Weasley & Hermione Granger
My favorite friends are from the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. I feel like they are my favorite because I grew up with them. I think that probably many feel the same way. Their friendship is like most people’s. There are ups and downs. Fight and peace.
