Hello everyone! Today is the festival of Raksha Bandhan which is a festival to celebrate the bond between bonds. Traditionally, a sister ties a thread(rakhi) to her brother and the brother in turn promises to protect her. Over the time, this has been evolved to a day to celebrate the bond between all siblings by tying rakhis to each other. I love this festival and it’s become quite a tradition to write about my bookish siblings on this day. I will mostly be sharing the siblings from the books I read in the last year.
You can read my previous Raksha Bandhan special posts about my favourite siblings here: 2019 edition
So without further ado, let’s start on with some of my favourite siblings:
Nishat and Preeti from The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar
Nishat and Preeti were the absolute sweetest and their bond was my favourite part of the book.
Chloe, Dani and Eve Brown from Get a Life, Chloe Brown and Take A Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert
I loved reading about the Brown sisters in both these books so much. Their love and support for each other is just really amazing.
Muntadhir, Ali and Zaynab from Empire of Gold by S.A.Chakraborty
This chaotic trio with all their fights and drama remains one of my favourites and I love the arc their relationship took in Empire of gold.Malik and his sisters from A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A. Brown
The lengths Malik goes to protect his sisters is so heartwarming and their relationship makes me so happy.
Severin and Tristan from The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
I just recently finished my reread of the book and just knew I had to mention them. Severin and Tristan are brothers in everything but blood and their love and protection towards each other remains one of the best.
The Torres Sisters from Tigers, not daughters by Samantha Mabry
The four Torres sisters and their relationship with each other was filled with arguments, love and protection. They were each other’s strength and this book focused so heavily on their sister bond.
Alex and June from Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
I love Alex and June’s bond from this book. It is so wholesome and supportive and reading about them reminds me of my brother and me so I love them!
I also want to mention some from last year which remain my faves: Kaul siblings from Jade City by Fonda Lee, Tea and Fox from The Bone Witch series and Mehr and Arwa from Empire of Sand by Tasha Suri.
