TTT: Let’s Just Be Friends.

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday (TTT) brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish.

February 7:  Top Ten Books I Wish Had (More/Less) X In Them (the original idea came from Andi who suggested top ten books I wish had more kissing which I thought could be fun but also realize it might not be everyone’s thing! Could also be top ten books I wish had more diversity in them or top ten books I wish had less violence in them or less romance focus in them or top ten books I wish had more dragons in them. IDK! Have some fun with this one!)

I know it’s late, but I’m here! I’m here! Ready with this week’s list!

I have to be honest with you guys. The topic this week really isn’t speaking to me. I’ve tried filling “X” in with serious items and funny items  – including vampires, recipes, Sherlock Holmes, and even talking dogs (a la the Chet and Bernie series) – but to no avail. Because truly, when I enjoy a book, I enjoy it. And books I don’t enjoy, honestly? I probably have forgotten about them to make room in my brain for our basketball practice schedule, or band concerts, or large homework projects due dates, or taking the dog to the vet. (Yes, I am my family’s living scheduler and calendar.) And let’s face it, I don’t really want to highlight books in my TTT that I’m not crazy about anyway.

So…what to do?

Then I realized that the initial inspiration for this topic (more kissing in books) might be timed due to Valentine’s Day coming up next week. (Although next week is the “official” Valentine’s TTT.) I remember we we did a Valentine-themed freebie TTT about this time last year. (Looking back, that was a fun list!) So instead of working with the actual prompt, I’m going to continue last year’s Top Ten Literary Couples in this week’s post. With a little twist…theses are characters who I am glad are NOT together.

Because sometimes being friends works even better.

Top Ten Bookish Friendships


“We’ll be friends forever, won’t we, Pooh?” asked Piglet.
“Even longer,” Pooh answered.

A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

And my number 10 is a shout out to my girl Veronica Mars and her sidekick/BFF Wallace. Neptune wouldn’t be the same without these two. Be cool, soda pop.



I know, I know. I was pretty terrible at following directions this week. What fun more or less “X” did you decide on? What characters would you add to my “just friends and that’s the way we like it” list? Sound off below, and link up to your own TTT if you’ve got one!

    • Thanks! My son and I are almost done listening to Scarlet, and I love the Thorne and Cinder scenes and banter. Those two are just too funny. I’m assuming she’s going to stay with Kai, and Thorne will find a partner (perhaps Cress?).


    • hehe – I thought about adding Holmes and Watson. But I ended up doing Veronica and Wallace instead. ❤ On Sherlock I'm definitely rooting for Sherlolly, although I think really Molly is too good and kind for Sherlock. But then again, so is John. 🙂

  1. I adore Elizabeth George and I have nearly completed the Sue Grafton series; I have read through T is for Trespass, and I enjoy the books. Kinsey and her community.
