Top 5 Wednesday | Friendships

 

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

paper towns

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.

My Review

 

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

eleanor and 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.

My Review

 

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.

Wish-List Wednesday #1

Welcome to Wish-List Wednesday! Every Wednesday I will tell you about the books, series or book related things that are highest on my wish-list.

So for my first Wish-List Wednesday I have chosen two books by the same author, Rainbow Rowell. The books are: Attachments and Fangirl. I just finished Rowell’s Eleanor & Park (review will be upp soon) wich I really liked and I’m looking forward to read her other books.

Attachments

Published April 14th by Dutton Adult.

Summary:

 Beth and Jennifer know their company monitors their office e-mail. But the women still spend all day sending each other messages, gossiping about their coworkers at the newspaper and baring their personal lives like an open book. Jennifer tells Beth everything she can’t seem to tell her husband about her anxieties over starting a family. And Beth tells Jennifer everything, period.

When Lincoln applied to be an Internet security officer, he hardly imagined he’d be sifting through other

people’s inboxes like some sort of electronic Peeping Tom. Lincoln is supposed to turn people in for misusing company e-mail, but he can’t quite bring himself to crack down on Beth and Jennifer. He can’t help but be entertained-and captivated- by their stories.

But by the time Lincoln realizes he’s falling for Beth, it’s way too late for him to ever introduce himself. What would he say to her? “Hi, I’m the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you.” After a series of close encounters and missed connections, Lincoln decides it’s time to muster the courage to follow his heart . . . even if he can’t see exactly where it’s leading him.

Written with whip-smart precision and charm, Attachments is a strikingly clever and deeply romantic debut about falling in love with the person who makes you feel like the best version of yourself. Even if it’s someone you’ve never met.

I’m really looking forward to get my hands on this one!

Fangirl

Will be published on September 10th 2013 by St. Martin’s Press.

Summary:

Cath is a Simon Snow fan.

Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan . . .
aa
But for Cath, being a fan is her life — and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving.

Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.



Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates.


Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this?

Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

I might have to pre-order this one? Can’t wait!

Thanks for now, see you next Wednesday!

Love, Diljá
