Top Ten Tuesday- Sister Relationships in Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week's topic is: Platonic Relationships (friends, siblings, family).  I thought I'd do Sister Relationships in Books.  

I always find family relationships in books interesting to read and sister relationships can be very complex and complicated.  Not all the sister dynamics I mention in this post are good ones but they were all interesting to read.   

A Sky Painted Gold by Laura Wood - This is probably one of my favourite sister relationships I've read about, it felt so real and I loved that about it. 

Down Among the Sticks and Bones (Wayward Children book 2) by Seanan McGuire - I found this sister bond interesting because of how the parents of the sisters in this book really drove a wedge between them.

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah - It's been a while since I've read this book but I really liked how the two sisters led different lives during the war but were always thought of by the other. 

The Young Elites by Marie Lu - I thought it so intriguing to read about Adelina and her relationship with her sister.  It was very up and down and I really liked that.

Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant - The sister of Tory (the main character) was the reason she started her journey in the book and I like that that was her main motivation.

*Edited to add* - The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - I can't believe I actually forgot to add this to the list but this is also one of my favourite sister relationships in books.

I would really like to read about more sisterly bonds in books.  Do you have any recommendations? Or have you read any of these?


  1. The only one I’ve read is The Hunger Games, but I agree, that series has an epic sister relationship. Great list!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. I love Katniss and Prim's relationship in the book!

  2. I very much agree about Jack and Jill and even when you consider this book, adults are the ones that drove a wedge between them too.

    1. I found it sad that none of the adults in the book even realised they were doing it.
