top 10 tues watercolorTen Books to Read if You’re in the Mood for Some #SquadGoals

Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review.

I don’t even feel bad for using the term #SquadGoals right now, because it’s exactly what I’m hoping to encapsulate today. I think there’s one book series I think of RIGHT away when I think of the term and that’s honestly what got me thinking about this topic. Sometimes you just need a book with a GREAT group of friends. They support each other, have great chemistry, and sometimes save the world together. These groups of great friends are included here below! Because I only had seven at the top of my mind, I included three books with more #BFFgoals instead. squad goalsSecond Time Around by Beth Kendrick • A great group of friends who met in college end up living together (and living out their dreams) ten years later

Winter by Marissa Meyer • Do I need to explain? The epitome of #SquadGoals: Cinder, Kai, Wolf, Scarlet, Jacin, Winter, Cress, and Thorne – love their chemistry the most ever

The Revenge Playbook by Rachael Allen • A group of very different girls smashing the patriarchy and sexist tendencies of their high school/boys football team

Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway • Despite the title with only two names, I fell pretty hard for the side characters that Emmy and Oliver are friends with – Caro and Drew

The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord • Super supportive group of girls that I absolutely loved – talk about three girls who can equally get along and love each other!

Aspen by Rebekah Crane • Such hilarious inside jokes and amazing chemistry between Aspen, her best friends, and her love interest – I could have chilled with them forever

The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater • I literally ship all of them together as more-than-friends, but am very much in love with Blue and her boys platonically as well

bff goalsTruthwitch by Susan Dennard • Safi and Iseult are threadsisters (this means they’re basically like friend-soulmates) who kicked ass all around this really cool fantasy world

Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid Hannah and Gabby became my favorite duo of bookish best friends ever – they supported each other no matter where life took them

Just Visiting by Dahlia Adler • Reagan and Victoria weren’t perfect and had some fights along the way, but the foundation of their friendship was just too solid to break

  1. Great choice for a list!!! I love books with strong friendships. It’s one of my things I wish more books would include. Raven Boys & Lunar Chronicles for SURE!! I love those 2 groups SO much! I have never heard of Aspen before, but I just read the description, and I REALLY want to read it! It sounds so like something I would love. Very cool list 🙂

  2. This is the best topic–so creative! I love books with great friend groups and bffs. The Lunar Chroncles squad is definitely the epitome of squad goals. I also love Emmyʻs friends in Emmy and Oliver…they were the best! I havenʻt read Maybe In Another Life, but Iʻve been seeing it around a lot lately. I think thatʻs a sign that I have to read it ASAP. Great list!

  3. I totally think Winter is a book that has squad goals in it! I definitely wouldn’t mind being part of the Rampion crew 😉 I also love that you included The Start of Me and You, because I wholeheartedly agree! And your choices for BFF goals? AMAZING.
