Books About Friendship

On Saturday night, I had dinner with the girls to celebrate a second engagement amongst our group. We have two weddings happening this year, and a third engagement likely in the midst. Soon enough, everyone will be married off with kids or resigned to the life of a spinster, sharing a double bed with 35 cats. When either fate befalls us, I'm not sure what the odds will be for regular girls' nights out, so we should probably make the most of it while we can.

With the drinks flowing and alarming amounts of food being consumed, the conversation took on a reminiscent tone. We laughed as we took it in turns to retell stories of our previous embarrassing indiscretions on our holidays and nights out together. Some of us have been friends since primary school, some since college and others since graduating from university. Being with my own friends made me begin cataloguing some of my favourite books about friendship. Here's the list I conjured up.

The Pact by Jodi Picoult

 If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Divergent by Veronica Roth
