Take ten: platonic relationships

Here are some of my favorite platonic relationships in literature. I find that I lean towards characters who are siblings, since I come from a big family and am especially close to my sister.
As usual, if you are interested in learning more about the book, click the image to go to Amazon. This post contains affiliate links, so thank you for supporting my book habit.;)

1. Jane of Austin

Sisters Jane and Celia overcome obstacles together as they relocate to Austin.

2. To Best the Boys

Cousins Rhen and Seleni take on a decades old competition for the chance to find a cure for a debilitating illness.

3. The Bronte Plot

Lucy is presented with the rare opportunity to visit England when grandmotherly Helen hires her to help her search out antiques.

4. Shadows over England series

A band of street rats and thieves become an unlikely family in this excellent series. I've enjoyed all the characters: Rosemary, Willa, Barclay...

5. The Secrets of Paper and Ink

Sophia and Ginny, friends who ban together to save a bookshop.

6. The Curse of Misty Wayfair

7. Evaporation of Sofia Snow

Sofia and her brother Shilo, and the lengths she goes to figure out what happened to him.

8. Pride and Prejudice


9. Lizzy and Jane

Sisters Elizabeth and Jane.

10. Listen to Your Heart

Alana and Kate, best friends who stretch each other to go outside their comfort zones (in a good way).


  1. Aw, I should have included Jane of Austin in my list. Love all the Kasie West books but haven't read this one (yet). I did add Sofi and Shilo to my list today though. :)

    1. You will have to find the time to pick up Listen to Your Heart, since it was (naturally) delightful.;)

  2. I've not read any of these, but they all sound so good.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thanks!

    1. I will have to check out your list. This was such a fun topic!

  3. I loved the sisters in Pride and Prejudice. Great choice!
