My Favorite Literary Friends



This week marks the tenth anniversary of the end of Friends, which is, basically, the only sitcom I've ever really fallen in love with.  In college my best friend/suite-mate/eventual roommate Bethany had the entire series and we watched it endlessly.  I'm usually not a fan of sitcoms at all, but Friends is different.  Since I'm feeling nostalgic about the fact that it's been TEN WHOLE YEARS since it ended, I decided to post about my favorite friendships in literature.

Scout, Jem, and Boo Radley in To Kill a Mockingbird
Runner-up: Scout, Jem, and Dill, especially the movie version of Dill.

Jess and Leslie in Bridge to Terabithia

Anne Shirley and Diana Barry in Anne of Green Gables

The real-life friendship between Ann Patchett and Lucy Grealy, portrayed in both Truth and Beauty and Autobiography of a Face

Johnny Wheelwright and Owen Meany in A Prayer for Owen Meany

Gene and Phinny in A Separate Peace

Idgie and Ruth in Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe

All of the mothers in Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood

Karou and Zuzanna in the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series

Beth and Jennifer in Attachments

Who are your favorite literary friends?
