Top 5 Wednesday is GoodReads group where people discuss different bookish topic each week. Yesterday the topic was bromances.

Bromance = platonic relationship between two characters who identify as male.

1, Miles Vorkosigan and Ivan Vorpatril by Lois McMaster Bujold
Miles and Ivan are cousins. They often get into adventures together. Miles is the irresistible force for forward momentum while Ivan is the innocent bystander (at least he claims so).

2, Legolas and Gimli by J. R. R. Tolkien
They start off as enemies but end up being the best of friends. LotR is just full of male friendships.

3, Cutter and Skywise from ElfQuest by Wendy and Richard Pini
The two elves who are brothers is all but blood.

4, Robin Hood and Little John
The legendary outlaw and his best friend.

5, Data and Geordi LaForge
This might be cheating a little, but lots of books have been written about Star Trek: TNG. 😊 I’ve always thought their friendship one of best things on the show.
