Top Ten Tuesday – Some of My Favorite Dynamic Duos in Fiction
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 Dynamic Duos. I struggled a little bit with this topic, not because I can’t think of any dynamic duos to focus on, but I guess I was trying too hard to come up with some additional theme to connect them all. I finally gave up and just went with a random list of favorites and tried to add some to the mix that I’ve read recently. I’ve got sisters, bffs, partners in crime, romantic duos, rivals – it’s really quite a hodge podge, lol.
Some of My Favorite Dynamic Duos in Fiction
1. Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead – Finlay and Vero – Partners in parenting and partners in crime.
2. It Happened One Summer – Piper and Hannah Bellinger – This sister duo is a force to be reckoned with.
3. Six of Crows – Kaz and Inez – Partners in crime and in so much more.
4. The Simple Wild – Calla and Jonah – You have to be a dynamic duo to live in the wilds of Alaska.
5. Mom Jeans and Other Mistakes – Jude and Lauren – BFF goals.
6. Firefly Lane – Kate and Tully – Forces of Nature and BFF goals.
7. Stalking Jack the Ripper – Thomas Cresswell and Audrey Rose – Partners in Forensic Pathology and so much more.
8. The Fastest Way to Fall – Wes and Britta – Partners in fitness and positivity; couple goals.
9. A Court of Mist and Fury – Feyre and Rhys – My favorite sexy, badass fantasy duo
10. When You Get the Chance – Millie and Oliver – My favorite theater-loving rivals who are so much better when they work together.

Six of Crows has been a very popular pick this week!

I noticed that, lol.
Aww, Kate and Tully – such a great duo! Especially with all they went through.
Right? Those books broke me, lol.
I read the first Finlay Donovan. I need the 2nd. Mom Jeans and Other Mistakes is on my wish list. I own It Happened One Summer and need to read it.
However, I also put Audrey Rose and Thomas on my list too!

Thomas and Audrey are such a great team!
The Finlay Donovan books look so fun. I wasn’t sure about this topic either and ended up skipping it, but seeing what people came up with… I wish I had done it now lol!

I think you would get a kick out of the Finlay Donovan books. They’re so funny.
You’ve reminded me I want to read the Finlay Donovan books, especially if there is a memorable duo in the story😁

I think you would enjoy the Finlay Donovan books. They have so many hilarious moments in them.
Finlay and Vero for the win! They were so good together. Vero was a trip!

Right? Vero always cracks me up. I really hope there will be more books in that series.
I read ACOMAF and put Rhysand and Feyre on my list too. The rest of your books is unfamiliar to me but I guess worth a closer look. Thank you for sharing.

Rhys and Feyre are probably my favorite fantasy duo. Love them so much!
Great picks! Jonah and Calla and Thomas and Audrey are definitely great couples that work so well together and have wonderful chemistry!

I was not feeling the topic today and felt if I made a list it would be too narrow. Now that I have read other people’s lists I have a better idea of what I could have done, LOL, but I am happy with what I did.

I just saw your topic and thought it was a lot of fun. 🙂
I chose Nina and Matthias instead of Kaz and Inej and I forgot about Finlay!!!

Six of Crows just has the best duos. I think even Jesper and Wyland could have been a great pick. 🙂
Six of Crows made my list twice this week, but surprisingly not with Kanej! Great list 🙂

Six of crows has the best duos. 🙂
Ah yes, Cresswell and Audrey Rose are great partners in crime solving!

Right? Loved them so much.
I thought of a few dynamic duos, but they were all really obvious ones. I couldn’t come up with any unique spins, so I did a different topic. The only book I’ve read from your list is STALKING JACK THE RIPPER, but it’s been so long that I really don’t remember the characters at all. Oops.

I just saw your topic. Lots of great books to be excited about this year. 🙂
Ooh, nice ones! The only one I’ve actually read is the Sarah J Maas title. But I have some on my wish to read list: Finlay Donovan, Firefly Lane (read almost all her books but not this duology), and the Jack the Ripper one. Thanks.

Firefly Lane and its sequel are so good. Some of my favorites from Hannah.
I really enjoyed Six of Crows, and it has been very popular this week! Here is our Top Ten Tuesday . Thank you!
It’s such a great book and I love how many dynamic duos are in it. 🙂
