Top Ten Tuesday, Weekly Posts

Top Ten Tuesday – Dynamic Duos

Happy Tuesday! It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, the weekly feature run by That Artsy Reader Girl where you choose ten books to fit a weekly prompt. This week’s prompt is dynamic duos. This one was a little tricky to not pick couples but here’s what I came up with.

Dex and Mosscap from A Psalm for the Wild-Built

These traveling companions had a great dynamic, they were so much fun to read about. Mosscap is such a cute robot character who helps Dex through his journey.

Hermione and Harry from Harry Potter

I love Harry and Hermione’s relationship. It is just a wonderful friendship and especially in the seventh book, it really shines. They don’t have the competitive issues of Harry and Ron or the romance issues of Hermione and Ron. Their friendship is really the star.

Sal and Theodore from The House in the Cerulean Sea

All of the characters in this book are amazing but I really love the dynamic between Sal and Theodore. Sal is always carrying Theodore on his shoulder and Theodore is there for Sal when he’s scared. They’re so cute.

Wallace and Nelson in Under the Whispering Door

Nelson is Wallace’s only ghost tutor when he shows up at the tea shop. The ghost lessons and way they laugh together are just adorable.

Cassian and Azriel in A Court of Mist and Fury

I love the whole trio but there’s something about Cassian and Azriel that is really special. Their history, their dynamic, it just works beautifully and I wish we got to see more of it.

Jovis and Mephi in The Bone Shard Daughter

I love a good talking animal sidekick and Mephi is one of the best. Watching him grow up and start to give Jovis the reluctant hero a hard time was so much fun.

Cassidy and Jacob in City of Ghosts

This series is a great middle grade. I’m obviously not the target audience but I really enjoyed them. Cassidy’s friendship with her ghost best friend and all of their adventures make for a fun read.

Ryland and Rocky from Project Hail Mary

This relationship was perfect and so much fun. Them learning to communicate was fascinating and truly unique. I loved this book but Rocky was really the star.

Jack and Jill in Every Heart a Doorway

These twins were the perfect ying and yang and had such a deep bond. They were fun to read about.

Katniss and Haymitch in The Hunger Games

I love the back and forth between Katniss and Haymitch. They’re so alike and yet so different and their dynamic is so much fun.

    1. I have mixed opinions on Wayward Children. I loved the first one but the novella format of the others means I don’t get to see as much of each kid’s world as I want. Everything by Klune is awesome. The Extraordinaries isn’t on this list but is also great.

  1. Omg, how did I forget about Sal and Theodore and Wallace and Nelson?! 🥺 I loved these duos so much and both books were such fantastic reads. I’ve also heard a lot about Mephi and I can’t wait to read that book 😃 Great list!
