Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Sam of Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. Here is the link for the Goodreads group where you can find the list of topics and such.
This weeks topic is: Favourite Friend Groups
Six of Crows* by Leigh Bardugo
The Crows are definitely one of the most interesting groups to read about, and they have a very tenuous relationship to say the least. They bicker like family more than friends, though I suppose thats what they are. A found family. However, they also fiercely protected each other, sometimes to a fault. I wish there were more books with these characters, I always loved reading about them.
I couldn't make a post about fictional favourite friend groups without including the original squad goals - The Night Court Inner Circle. Every single one of these characters has a special place in my heart and I can't explain how happy I am that we're getting more stories with them.
I have a review for A Court of Wings and Ruin here.
I have a review for A Court of Frost and Starlight here.
The Howlers are the most crude, rude and gross bunch of people ever and I adore then. They're violent, swear and create chaos wherever they go. Quite possibly my favourite fictional group of friends. When they fall out though, it usually ends with swords drawn...
Manon's Thirteen from the Throne of Glass universe are my favourites. They're wonderful sassy murder-y witches and I want them all the be happy. I think I've mentioned this before on here but I'd love a prequel series just about the Ironteeth Witches and how they came to be in the position they are at the start of the series. They are wonderful, and as a group develop so much over the course of a few books.
It's been quite a while since I read this but I remember how much I loved the dynamics between the characters in this series. Particularly the Black Clan, they had a reputation they didn't really deserve but used it to their advantage. It was a family built on respect and honour with the perfect amount of teasing and banter. Okami is still one of my favourite characters across the YA world.
