Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!
This week’s TTT topic is Platonic Relationships In Books (friendships, parent/child, siblings, family, etc.). After spending Thanksgiving at my mom’s and spending some quality time with my younger sister, I came home feeling very thankful that I have such a great relationship with her. There’s nothing quite like that bond between siblings. For that reason, I decided to use this week’s topic to share some of my favorite sibling relationships in books that I’ve read. Whether it’s their witty banter, the sibling rivalry, or just good old-fashioned overprotective siblings, these literary siblings really captured my heart when I read their stories.

My Top 10 Favorite Siblings in Literature
I don’t think any list of siblings would be complete without this crew.
Is it possible to even call yourself a Game of Thrones fan if you don’t love the Stark siblings, especially Arya, Sansa, and Jon?
As much as I enjoyed all of the romantic possibilities in this story, what I loved most was the close relationship between Lara Jean and her sisters.
It’s all about the witty banter between these two!
Talk about your sibling bonds – these two are literally tethered to each other by an actual bond.
I think this was my first ever favorite siblings. Didn’t everyone want a brother like Jem and/or a sister like Scout?
That sibling bond is strong even though they were all adopted and don’t meet each other until they’re teenagers.
This relationship really grew on me, especially since they were step siblings and since Theo acted like such a jerk at first. He really grew on me as he warmed up to Jessie though.
I’m a big fan of the closeness between Lizzie, the protagonist, and her older sister, especially the idea that Lizzie was the overprotective one.
