Top Ten Tuesday: Book Bromances

I've seen this meme on a lot of blogs and decided to join in. This meme was created by The Broke and Bookish. Every Tuesday there is a new topic that involves a list of ten books. 

This week's topic is a freebie so I've decided to do Top Ten Book Bromances.







1) Mal and Nikolai
Are you guys surprised? I bet you are. My love for these books is no secret but I can't tell you how much I wish that Mal, Alina, and Nikolai could just have been one happy threesome. Mal and Nikolai have this charming and snarky banter between them that makes me swoon every time. Gosh, I love them. 





2) Roar and Perry
Another bromance where I wished they could have been a threesome with Aria. Roar and Perry always seemed to be challenging and making fun of each other. Although both of these guys are leaders in their own right, they turn into school boys when around each other. 





3) Chaol and Dorian 
Honestly, these two guys love each other so much that I think they would make a beautiful couple. BUT since I don't think either of them are bisexual unfortunately, these two just really love each other and it's so adorable. 





4) Harry and Ron 
These two were the original bromance in the book world--and they set the bar for friendship goals. It seemed like their bromance was destiny from the minute Harry sat in the same train compartment as Ron. They had a lot of ups and downs, but they stayed together no matter what. 




5) Enzo and Rafaelle
Enzo may have be the leader of the Elites, but he doesn't make any final decisions without getting Rafaelle's thoughts on the matter first. Enzo is very defensive of his dear friend and will (and has) killed anyone who caused him harm. These two have a deep connection that friendship can't define.





6) Rafa and Jude 
These two actually remind me a lot of Harry and Ron--friends from the moment they meet and brothers for life. They are both witty, funny, and real badasses, which just makes their affection for each other a little weird, but cute nonetheless.





7) Tariq and Rahim
It seemed like nothing could separate these two in this book. Although it seemed like a fool's errand to go after Shazi, Rahim was right by Tariq's side for this mission. There was so much at stake and at risk, but they faced the wrath for their chosen path together.




8) Rowan and Tristan
Stone-kin brothers who seem to keep each other in check, they are not the typical bromance in the sense that their affection for each other seems to be more about keeping each other out of trouble. No matter how much they get on each other's nerves, they stand together.





9) Tobiah and James
These two remind me a lot of Batman and Robin. Well--maybe more like Bruce and Alfred haha. They're cousins, have grown up side-by-side, and can always be found together. Both of them love to paint each other in an embarrassing light, but they are fiercely protective of one another.



10) Aedion and Rowan
Aedion and Rowan seem to either be ready to hug it out or fight. Aedion seems enamored by Rowan's presence but at the same time, he wants to challenge him whenever he has the opportunity. There are a lot of passionate feelings between these guys.

  1. I love your choice of topic. :-) Ron and Harry are the only two I am familiar with (I would love to have been counted among their friends). I am sure I will love Rafa and Jude when I meet them someday. You've got me curious about your other pairings too. Jodi Meadows' book sounds like a lot of fun.

    1. When I was growing up, I always imagined myself in Harry, Ron, and Hermione's crew.

      I hope you get a chance to read these other books, they are all awesome!

    1. I sometimes prefer bromances over the main couple in a book haha

  3. I love bromances! I actually did read a series once in which the guys really were in a threesome relationship lol. I was kind of squealing with joy when they finally admitted their feelings for each other. But it was DEFINITELY not a YA series. The normal friendship bromances are just as great though. The only one I've read from this list is Harry Potter, but I'll definitely be checking out these other books! Here's my TTT :-)

  4. I love bromances, and if a book has a cute bromance, I'll ship that over most of the regular couples lol

  5. Adios and Rowan made me laugh so much in QoS. All the alpha male business was just so funny. Especially with Aedion talking in near hushed tones about Rowan. Until said Fae prince appears.. Haha.
    I do agree that Harry and Ron are totally the original bromance though 😊

  7. I love Roar and Perry. This reminds me that I really need to finish that series. Chaol and Dorian would make a lovely couple (especially after hearing stuff about the following books). I love bromances. You know what we need, though? More lady friendships!

    1. YES, we definitely need more lady friendships without the pettiness and backstabbing. There is a great one in QoS!

      I love the Under the Never Sky books, the ending is spectacular and it's one of my top recommendations to people.

  8. Chaol/Dorian is the BROTP to end all BROTP, though I also think Rafa/Jude is a strong contender for the title. Whenever I see bromance I just get flashbacks to Supernatural, haha! Great topic :D

    1. Oh my god, someone else who has read the Rephaim books!! We have SOO much to talk about.

      I've never watched Supernatural (I've been meaning too but it's just so many episodes) but I know that they are considered to be the best of the bromances.

  9. Oh goodness Chaol and Dorian. I loved them and their friendship. Not to mention I was constantly torn between who I wanted Celaena to be with more. Still have to read Queen of Shadows though.

    What a great list and fun topic!

      Roar and Perry do remind me a little of Adam and Kenji before Adam did a personality flip.

      Tariq annoyed me too but his friendship with Rahim was adorable.
