Reading might be a solitary activity, but sharing books is one of the best things about having bookworm friends. Here are five books featuring friendships to read together with your bestie.
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
The unlikely friendship between impulsive, hotheaded, Safi and the more cautious Iseult, two witches with their own unique gifts, is the center of Susan Dennard’s Witchlands series. Together, they find themselves facing off against mercenaries, princes, and emperors, their friendship tested as war comes to their homeland.
Seriously Hexed by Tina Connolly
Not all friendships are BFFs at first sight. Teenage witch Cam is just trying to avoid following in her wicked witch mother’s footsteps, which means trying to avoid tangling with other witches. Then she meets Poppy Jones, who is everything Cam is supposed to be, and isn’t: a perfect witch in training. When dire circumstances force them to work together, though, their rivalry falls by the wayside, and there just might be a chance for the two to find a surprising friendship.
To Right the Wrongs by Sheryl Scarborough
Lone detectives are well and good, but solving mysteries is better with company. Erin Blake teams up with her best friends to try to clear her boyfriend’s father of the murder that send him to jail in this sequel to To Catch a Killer. Don’t tell us you’ve never wanted to team up with your best friends to solve crime.
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
The year is 1943, and a British spy plane carrying two young women has been shot down over Nazi-occupied France. One of them, a spy called “Verity,” is cornered into giving a full confession, leading her to tell the story of how she became a spy – and why she left her co-pilot and dearest friend Maggie behind in the wreck.
Like Never and Always by Ann Aguirre
Okay, so maybe this isn’t the friendship you want…but imagine if you woke up after a disastrous car crash in the body of your best friend – found out that it’s possible she had secrets you knew nothing about. Dangerous secrets. That’s what happens in Like Never and Always, which isn’t out quite yet (it will be in July!). Be ready for a wild ride – and maybe check in with your friend about if there’s anything you should know before you swap bodies.
