Today, I’m taking part in Top Ten Tuesday, and as the theme today is about platonic relationships I thought I’d list some of my favourite families/found families (with a slightly smaller list because I could have went on forever and I didn’t want to get carried away!). Onto the post!
The Manners from Geek Girl– I’m sure no one who knows my feelings on the Manners is shocked they’re on here- they’re the best. Their interactions are almost always hilarious, and heartwarming/touching when they’re not. I just love them. I’m so thrilled that Holly Smale’s next series centres on a family, because she’s amazing at writing them if this one is anything to go by!
The Weasleys from Harry Potter– who doesn’t love the Weasleys? Each and every member is wonderful (maybe excluding Percy…), and they made me laugh and cry throughout the series.
Zorie and Joy from Starry Eyes– I read this just a few weeks ago (my review will be in my reviws post next month!), but Zorie’s relationship with her stepmum became a fast fave for me. Their dialogue together is so great, and the way they support each other when there are some revelations that rock the family is super, super lovely.
Morrigan and the staff of the Hotel Deucalion– this is the found family I was referring to. I love how kind the staff of the hotel all are to Morrigan, and how much they care for and protect her in both the books so far. They all go out of their way to make her happy, and it gives me such a warm glow.
The Daniels family from When We Collided– this family are going through a really difficult time when we meet them, and the way the older siblings are looking after the younger ones is incredible. I loved how much they all clearly loved each other.
Stella and Felix from Polar Bear Explorers Club- Felix adopted Stella when she was young, and I love how encouraging and kind and supportive he is. Their house is amazing too, and I love that he lets Stella have some very unusual but fantastic pets!
The Coveys from the Lara Jean trilogy– this family is one of the loveliest ever, and the close relationship between Lara Jean, Kitty and Margot is fabulous. The way they are with their dad is great too; their mum passed away before the book began and so he raises them single-handedly.
Jack and Scott from Adventure Island- the Carter brothers are brilliant fictional siblings, and I love that even though they bicker and banter, they ALWAYS had each other’s back when they needed to. I adored the Adventure Island books (a shoutout here to Amy and Dan from 39 Clues as well, for the exact same reasons!!)
Who are your favourite families in fiction? I’d love to hear in the comments!
