TOP TEN TUESDAY: Top 10 Books About Friendship

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where, each week, a Top Ten list is posted based on a particular topic.

This is the first time that I am participating in this awesome meme! Seems really fun! And to talk about the books that I love in a particular topic, is a great way to show how much I love mah books! 

So the topic for this week is : Top 10 Books About Friendship

Here's my TOP 10

1. The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky- A fragile high school freshman going through making friends, finding them and sharing moments with them through thick and thin? This is my kind of book. I don't know what's more amazing than having queer friends who understand you  for what you are and for what you believe in. "Welcome to the island of Misfit Toys", Sam said. I think I'll fit in with these guys. Charlie and Patrick too? I'm all for the pack!

2. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green- Other than the love between Hazel Grace and Gus, there's also the friendship that started it all. And having Isaac with them, it's such a perfect friendship even if they are under such consequences. People who are sick deserve friends too.

3. Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling- I don't know any book nerd who wouldn't agree with saying that other than the magic spells, J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter books circles around friendship and what certain emotions and characteristics it can bring out in a person. For friends, you are willing to give everything. For friendship, you are willing to be brave and fight against all odds. Friendship molded Harry Potter, and I thank J.K. Rowling for making such a fantastic series!

4. Percy Jackson and the Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan- Percy and the other demigods from Camp Half-Blood and Camp Jupiter, spills out so much friendship in their veins, that I'm sure they are willing to sacrifice everything for each other's sake. Just hoping the rumors of Nico dying doesn't happen.

5. Th1rteen R3asons Why by Jay Asher- Now for those who have read the book, I'm sure that you might say, "What the heck, she died and all without having real friends." And I guess that's the lesson that Th1rteen R3asons Why wants for its readers to understand. Friendship is one of the most fragile things in the world, and having friends can either make or break a person. One may have friends, but they are never truly there. One must be a good judge of character to have real friends who will always be there for you no matter what and will never take advantage of you.

6. The Maze Runner Trilogy by James Dashner- A group of boys trying to get out of a maze and running away from a secret organization? One of the best ways to gain friends! HAHA!

7. Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs- The story is haunting, witty and full of camaraderie. I honestly think the kids in the books (including Hollow City) are such sweet hearts and they try to save each other with their own powers. That's a sign of friendship right there. Perfect! And if you don't like to be friend with children with awesome superpowers, then I feel sorry for you.

8. Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen- Friendships don't always have to be soooo dramatic. It can be fluffy too.

9. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson- There's family and there are friends. Remember that they will never leave your side, no matter how long you might've left, or how you have tried to shun them away. If they are your true friends, they'll never leave you. They'll understand. They'll give you second chances.

10. Cinder by Marissa Meyer- Friendship will always be present, no matter what or who you are. It's the mutuality of emotions that matter the most. Love Cinder and Iko's friendship...

So that's it for this week's TOP 10 LIST!!! *throws confetti* Leave your comments below and tell me what you think about these books or if you have any suggestions on books about friendship that I should read!
