This week’s prompt is: DYNAMIC DUOS (Submitted by Elley @ Elley the Book Otter)
With so much focus on romantic couples this month, I wanted to stick to friendship duos for this week’s prompt and I have to admit, I struggled (oh, this weak memory of mine)! 😂 I was tempted to go in the same direction as Leslie this week but although it took me *a while* to do it, I eventually managed to come up with a list of ten of my favourite dynamic friendship duos! Without further ado, let’s get right to it…
*book covers are linked to my review, if available!*
EVELYN + HARRY – THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO
You know I’m not about to come at you with spoilers or anything so… I’m just gonna leave it at this. But if you know then YOU KNOW THEY ARE THE ULTIMATE AND I JUST LOVE THEM SO MUCH!!! 🥺
OLIVE + lucy – to love jason thorn
Olive and Lucy have one of the best ride-or-die friendships and it was their dynamic that made me love this romance! They were so unconditionally supportive of each other and I mean, they were both weird AF together but they got each other’s weirdness, y’know?
EMONI + ANGELICA – WITH THE FIRE ON HIGH
The friendship was of the sister-friend variety and I loved their connection! Their friendship was full of love, warmth, respect and understanding and I absolutely loved their banter! Kinda wish Angelica got her own story too!
DEKA + BRITTA – THE GILDED ONES
Deka and Britta start their friendship unconventionally but there’s no doubting the loyalty and respect they have for each other. They were quite literally ride-or-die and their friendship was one of the best things about this fantasy!
mog + hawthorne – Nevermoor
Mog and Hawthorne are two misfits who just clicked from the very beginning. Mog balances out Hawthorne’s chaotic-good energy and I loved how their friendship grows throughout the series!
NATHANIEL + SILAS – SORCERY OF THORNS
Nathaniel and Silas have a very unconventional relationship but there’s no denying how much they mean to each other and how protective they are. I loved them 😍
HERBIE + VIOLET – MALAMANDER
There’s something about MG friendships that are always so heartwarmingly pure and Herbie & Violet’s friendship was no different. They’re both “oddities” in this seaside town and they’re both lonely but now they have each other and I love their complementary dynamic!
AMARI + ELSIE – AMARI AND THE NIGHT BROTHERS
So, is it only just me and Amari who want to be friends with a weredragon? Cos Elsie was such a sweetheart! Their friendship was so heartwarming had wholesome and I loved how they became great roomies! ❤️
YADRIEL + MARITZA – CEMETERY BOYS
I adored Yadriel and Maritza’s relationship. They’re cousins and best friends and I loved the way Maritza was so fiercely protective of Yadriel, especially when no one else in their family understood him. Maritza deserves her own story too!
TASKER + KATRYZNA – KEPT FROM CAGES
Okay, ngl, just thinking about Katryzna has me absolutely cracking up cos she is WILD! 😂 Tasker is the somewhat calming balanced agent to Katryzna’s slightly unhinged assassin and though they shouldn’t work together they absolutely DO! I love this duo so much!
What books have some of your favourite dynamic duos? Have you met any of these friends or are their books on your TBR?
