It’s Friday, and that means it is time for Friday Favorites! Friday Favorites is hosted by the wonderful blog Something of the Book. Basically, a prompt is given, and you get to gush about your favorites.
This week’s prompt is favorite character team-ups! I wasn’t quite sure what to put until I started to really think about what I love in a book. I love banter, I love chemistry, and I love everything to do with sarcasm and mushy characters. So naturally, I’m choosing a team-up of a sarcastic character and a cinnamon roll character.
Seriously, this is my favorite team-up! A book with a grumpy/sarcastic character teamed up with a sunshine/cinnamon roll character is my catnip. There is just something beautiful about the give and take of this team-up. I love that the grump starts to see the bright rays of sunshine a bit more. I also love the inevitable moment where the grump has to pick up the sunshine character and be optimistic. It’s just such a fun dynamic to watch. There is usually a bit of banter, some quick-witted responses, and all of the usual things that make me happy. I think that is one of the reasons I am LOVING Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert. This book is just perfect so far! You have the grumpy/sarcastic Chloe and the incredibly bright ray of sunshine Red.
Honorable mention goes to Enemies having to team up. I just love seeing the give and take in this. It’s fascinating to read, and I love the problem solving they have to do in regards to each other and to the situation.
So what are your favorite team-ups?
