Top Ten Tuesday: Dynamic Duos

Top Ten Tuesday was created and is hosted by The Broke And The Bookish. This week's topic is Dynamic Duos - fictional best friends or relationships or awesome people that have left their mark in your head!

My list won't quite reach ten. I don't really love that many dynamic duos in books except for the Harry Potter gang, which is so self-explanatory that I won't even post ON my list. So here's my top ten ... er .. top seven favorite dynamic duos, in no particular order.

Scarlett & Rosie - Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce.
Although the two are immensely different, and want completely different things for their life, Jackson wrote a fantastic bond between them and it leaped from the pages.



Sydelle & North - Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken.
Their banter and arguments and insulting words (mostly from Sydelle) were absolutely hilarious and only added to the awesomeness that is this novel. These two will go down in history as one of my favorite fictional couples of all time!



Amy & Roger - Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson.
It's amazing to read how the relationship between two complete strangers blossoms throughout the length of this book. From awkwardness, to friends, to complicated friends, to gah ... I can't even articulate with this one. Just read the book, people!



Ellie & Will - Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton.
In my review, I dubbed these two Batman and Robin, which is pretty accurate. Even with all the angst and kissing and mushy stuff, the term "dynamic duo" is absolutely perfect for them with all the reaper ass kicking they do together.



Sylvie & Ebon - Pegasus by Robin McKinley.
It's true, I kind of hated the book. But that doesn't mean that I hated the characters. In fact, I absolutely loved them. In this novel, the bond between the two basically is the story. The depths of their adoration and friendship is astounding and even though I probably won't pick up the book again, I certainly will continue to put the two of lists like this.



Deuce & Fade - Enclave by Ann Aguirre.
This book doesn't release until next month, but be prepared to get terrified. In the midst of horror and gore and sadness that paints the setting of this novel, Deuce and Fade manage to be kick-ass characters that take it all in stride.



Anna & St. Clair - Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins.
No words needed, right? I'm sure you've all read the book. You know how perfect these two are. Right. No words.
