This week's topic: Book Friendship 

It's not one friendship, but a whole  group  club's worth.

Before we started asking: Are you a Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, or Miranda? The real question was: Are you a Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia, Dawn, or Stacey? (Also; Jesse, Mallory, Abby, Shannon, and Logan.)

I love how it's a whole group of friends with different personalities and varying compatibilities, but they still find a way to remain friends. Yes, the girls can be a bit awful to each other, but they also tend to apologize, make up, and get past their differences. They accept one another for who they are and don't try to change one another.

It doesn't matter what happens, they always try to find a way to work it out. That's an important component of any relationship.

And, in case you are wondering, I'm a Mary Anne who wishes she was a Claudia.


  1. I have honestly never heard about 'The Babysitters Club'. How fun that it's a book about a close group of friends. Awesome! ;)
    My Favorite book friendship is definitely the friendship between Harry, Ron and Hermoine. I love those three.
    Thank you so much for joining and signing up! ;)

    1. It's definitely an American thing that was big in the 1980s and early 1990s. I tried to get my daughter into it, but she just doesn't like it. (She DOES like Harry Potter, Narnia, Little House, and Animorphs. So there is that!) A large part of the issue is that these books are definitely set in their own time and even when they tried to "update" the series with a rerelease, it didn't work - unless they were to completely change it.

      The reason they hold meetings at one girl's house is she's the only one who has her own phone line. A lot of problems arise from not being able to get a hold of the parents. (Cell phones greatly change the dynamic.) The girls aren't older than 13 or 14. Even when I was that age (1997-1998) parents tended to prefer girls who were 16 or older.
