Top 5 Literary Friend Groups You Want To Be A Part Of

A really hard choice. I have read so many fantastic books with such brilliant characters that I wished they were real people or just hoped I matched their cool factor.
Not all the books mentioned have a friend group as such. They are mostly duos or trios which I did feel is just right.

5. The God Of Small Things by Arundhati Roy

Good lord! Will I shut up about this book already?! I have reviewed and mentioned this book on numerous occasions yet I had to do it again. Rahel an Esthappen are peculiar with this intelligence that I wouldn't have possessed at their age and that's what intrigued me the most. I would love to be a part of this eccentric duo just to know better of their in-sync functioning.

4.Cress by Marissa Meyer

The third installment in the Lunar Chronicles, all the characters here come together in this book before getting to the final 'princess'. Cress, Scarlet, Cinder, Iko, Wolf, Dr. Erland and Captain Thorne all of them are never on the same thinking range but united by a common cause. When the situation arises they are no less of a dream team. Being a part of this group would be amazing considering I get to be on a flying spaceship and get to shuttle between the Earth and Moon.

3. The Help by Kathryn Stockett

An iconic book with brilliant characters. Each one of them so well written. Stockett is a genius for being able to make these women so easy to connect with, so much so you begin to care about them. The unusual friendship of Skeeter, Aibileen and Minny is like how I would want it to be when I'm older. Laughing at the smallest jokes and looking out for each other like sisters. Bonds so strong that it outlasts blood relations.

2. Looking for Alaska by John Green

My second John Green book and Man! does he know how to write friendship or what! I'm one of those people who feels that his books are a tad bit commercial for my taste. The plot often falls through, however his consistency in writing people, youngsters who aren't overtly preppy is commendable.  Alaska, Pudge, The Colonel, even Hazel and Augustus, I want to be friends with them all. I want to be a part of the atmosphere they create and I don't want to leave it.

1.The  Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

One of the best Coming-of-age tale I have come across. Charlie is a thinker, ahead of of his years and an introvert. Apart from this being his story, Sam and Patrick form a major component of his life and the book as well. The three accept each other as they while battling their own issues. As a reader, we do get a fair glimpse of all three of their lives and get to understand why this friendship is so beautiful. 

 خُدا حافِظ,
