We’re Celebrating Our Friendiversary!

It’s true that you never know where you are going to meet the love of your life. Or in this case, one of your best friends. Three years ago, this week Magan was on her way to “work” at a wedding in Austin and Estelle was putting on a mint green dress to watch one […]

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Awwww you guys are so cute! I love that you’re celebrating your friendiversary!!

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - Happy anniversary, ladies! Great choices for female friendships, I loved all of these. And I agree that we need more in YA!

Lucy - Hooray for friendiversary’s! Yay for bonding over books and starting RBR! I like a good friendship book and you’ve listed some of my favorites in this post. Especially Maggie & Roux, and Cath & Reagan 🙂

Alexa S. - You guys! I’m still so very happy that you met, became BFFs and started Rather Be Reading. You guys are such an inspiring pair, the type of friendship I love seeing in books or in real life. The friendships you’ve chosen (I’ve read 3 out of 4!) are brilliant for the reasons you’ve mentioned here — all necessary in real, true friendship. I’m honored to be able to call you both my friends as well, and want to squishy hug you both <3

Leah - I should not have read this while sitting by the window! Anyone driving by will probably think I’m a complete nut for grinning so hard. Your story AND you two are absolutely adorable!

Although we lost touch over the years, I met my best friend through Harry Potter message boards on AOL back in the day. 🙂 For years we’d chat online and send letters and finally, in 2008, we had the chance to meet in person (at a HP convention obvs). I’m a total believer that a best friend might be right behind you in line at the grocery store or sitting across from you on the bus. Like Jamie, I’m all for chatting up strangers – and, luckily, I get to do that at work!

Victoria (aka Zemfirka) - Happy friendiversary ladies!!! 🙂

Jen Ellision - Awww, I love this! Incidentally, the beginning of this post reminds me of one of my favorite quotes/female friendships from Code Name Verity: “It’s like being in love, discovering your best friend.”

Christina @ Allodoxophobia - Happy anniversary! I love this post! If Melissa and I wrote one, we’d be celebrating 29 years as friends this coming summer. So important to celebrate friendship 🙂 My favorite group of friends might be The Raven Boys + Blue. They support and antagonize each other in all kinds of interesting ways.

Andi - I love this! What a cute story on how you met! Really it is amazing how the littlest things can bring two people together as friends and I love that you two are proof of that.
Happy Friendiversary!

Jamie - I still love your “how you met” story! This is why I am PRO talking to strangers about books 😛

Love the picks I’ve read (Fangirl, Also Known As and WSW) and so agree with the friendships! Gotta read Past Perfect!

How lucky you are to have each other in life and with this blog! This post made me think fondly about the two best friends in my life from middle school/HS and then HS/college. I’m only close with one of them at this point, and not even bffs really, but I loved thinking about HOW I met them and how important they were to my life and how I grew as a person. It’s harder for me as an adult to find a close friend like that these because everyone is just in such different places in life but I still hope to find my adulthood peanut butter to my jelly. It’s funny when I think about it though how my sister has really become that person since the day she told me she was pregnant with Genevieve.

ANYWHO now I’m all nostalgic and I apologize for doing it all over your comment box haha. I’m happy that 3 years ago you got your book nerd on as strangers because, if not, you both wouldn’t be in my life…and that would be sad because you guys have definitely had an impact on my life!
