These brothers and sisters showcase the best in literary relationships. Did your favorites make the list?

Incredible Literary Siblings
There are a lot of Weasleys and they are almost all amazing. Percy aside, these siblings are loyal, funny, and fearless in the best way. I love how they adopt Harry as an honorary Weasley too. Goes to show not all sibling bonds are made by blood.
This heartwarming story about three half-siblings separated at birth and reunited as teens is a tear-jerker. I love how Benway grew the siblings bond over the course of the book. It was wonderful.
Marilla and Matthew have the privilege of not only being siblings, but also raising a little girl together. Their good-cop/bad-cop routine works wonders for little Anne Shirley, providing her with the loving family she needs.
Four sisters that actually get along for the majority of the book? Well done, Marmie. Can you come teach me how to make my kids get along? Well aside from the whole page burning incident. (I never did like Amy though.)
Ruth and Delilah’s relationship in How to Make God Laugh is so complicated. They are sisters that have been torn apart by their differences but end up working their way back to each other in the most beautiful way over the course of the novel.
The Sorenson sisters’ relationship is probably the most realistic one on this list. Their relationships ebb and flow in a really natural way, but they are there for each other when it really counts.
Katniss legit went on a suicide mission to prevent her darling sister from facing death in The Hunger Games arena. Their sisterly bond is really shown in full force later in the series though.
Not all the Bennett sisters were up to snuff, but Jane and Lizzy were sisters in the best way possible. With humor and love, they supported each other through heartbreak, disappointment, their mother’s scheming, and the abominable Mr. Collins.
