Top 5 Saturday

Devouring Books hosts a weekly blog meme called Top 5 Saturday. This week it’s all about sibling relationships.

I love, love, love when books focus on sibling relationships rather than on romance. It’s hard to find and is so refreshing. Without further ado, here are my top five favorite fictional sibling relationships!

  1. Cyrus and Antigone from the Ashtown Burials series By N.D. Wilson

Cyrus and Antigone are pretty much the essence of sibling relationships. They tease each other, have inside jokes, get annoyed with one another, and love one another to pieces. It reminds me a lot of my own sibling relationships.

2. The Penderwick Sisters from The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall

First of all, this series is one of my all-time favorites. I re-read it every summer (at least the first book) because it is so beautiful and nostalgic. The sisters in this series are all well-developed characters, and the way they interact with each other is so realistic. They disagree and argue from time to time, but are always there for one another and help each other out.

3. Day and Eden from the Legend series by Marie Lu

Day and Eden go through a lot in this trilogy. Day is the helpful older brother taking care of his sick sibling, and their relationship is so sweet. Towards the end of the series, Day also as to learn that Eden is his own person with his own wants and desires. It’s something lots of older siblings face with their younger siblings, and I loved the dynamic their relationship brought to the trilogy.

4. Jared, Simon, and Mallory from The Spiderwick Chronicles series by Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi

This trio is one for the ages. Jared and Simon are twins, and Mallory is their older sister. They face off against fantastical forces in this series, which was one of my favorites when I was younger. Their dynamic reminds me of the relationship my siblings and I have, which made the book surprisingly relatable (consider it’s fantasy) for a young reader. I love their family and the series. If you haven’t read it, you definitely should.

5. Cinder and Peony from Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Peony and Cinder, despite their differences (and only step-sibling relationship) are close friends in this book. They love one another deeply and try to take care of each other. Peony is optimistic and bubbly while Cinder is more down-to-earth. *spoilers ahead* Peony becomes Cinder’s motivation for much of the series after her death *end of spoilers*. Their relationship is sweet and beautiful.

I always have a book in my hands or zipped up in my bag. I'll probably read through the apocalypse and not realize what's happened.
