Friendship in Books by Simona
All books we read all full of magic of all different sorts. There are stories about love, stories surrounding a lot of mystery or stories set in a fantasy world. FRIENDSHIP plays an important in a lot of books, so I though I’d write a little post about it.
Next to the family, friends are the most important people in a character’s life. The main characters seek advice and hang out with their friends. This time is really valuable and the deep bonds in some friendships make the books special and unique. Friends understand each other without words and they know exactly what the other person needs.
In Giovanna Fletcher’s second novel You’re The One That I Want to main focus is on friendship. It tells the story of Maddy, Ben and Robert, how their friendship developed and how it all grew into deeper feelings, feelings of love. Maddy being ton between her two best friends and then also one of the guys not getting her and still just wanted her to be happy. Their connection and chemistry was unique and special.
Carmel Harrington created a wonderful group of friends in her debut novel Beyond Grace’s Rainbow. Grace, the main character has cancer and has to deal with some other difficult things in her life. Her group of friends is just amazing. They gave her strength, were there for her the whole way through and they built a strong bond around Grace and her family. Every single one of them had their special role and they always had so much fun together as well. I loved reading about their friendship and all of them had their own little story to tell as well.
A friend doesn’t necessarily have to be someone in the character’s age, it can also be someone older and wiser. Rebecca Raisin showed this in a beautiful way in her Gingerbread Café series. CeeCee isn’t Lily’s biological mother, but she was like a mother figure and was there for Lily all the time.
Real friends are a treasure and I’m so happy to have each and every one of them in my life. Since I started blogging I’ve meet so many great people and some great friendships developed. I’m really grateful for that.
