Last week, I talked about my 5 most traumatic character deaths, the ones that left me in a weeping heap of emotions that made me want to both never read a book again, but also read every single book by that author because HOW CAN PAPER AND INK MAKE ME FEEL SO MUCH?!
And while I definitely appreciate those well- written deaths, there have been some character deaths that have been… well, less than gut-wrenching. For whatever reason, whether the character or her arc weren’t developed enough, or it was just made to feel like a cheap, meaningless death, these deaths just left me wanting more (more what? More death? Better death??? What does this say about me?).
So, without further ado, here are my 5 most disappointing character deaths.
If I’m being 100% honest, I love a well-written character death. If a book can make me cry, I immediately love it so much more. And I’ve read plenty of books that had me crying myself to sleep because OH MY LANTA, HOW CAN YOU PUT A CHARACTER THROUGH THAT KIND OF PAIN?!?!
And because I don’t want to be alone in my pain, I thought I’d share the 5 most painful character deaths, and remind you guys of all the pain, too! BWAHAHAHA!!
Also, it probably goes without saying, but there are probably gonna be some spoilers in this post.
Happy Tuesday everyone!! It’s time for another Top 5 Tuesday, hosted by Shanah, the brilliant Bionic Bookworm herself! This week’s Top 5 Tuesday is extra special, because it’s the last one of the year!
But, I have a bit of a confession to make. The actual topic this week is “Books I Want for Christmas,” but, like the terrible book lover I am, I actually don’t really enjoy getting books as gifts. It’s crazy, I know, but I’m always so picky about my books, and sometimes even if I’ve wanted a book for ages, it ends up sitting on my shelf because I just don’t feel like reading it. And then I feel bad because someone bought me a book they thought I’d love, and 8 months down the road, I still haven’t read it.
So, I’m gonna change it up just a little bit, and instead of listing five books I’d like to get for Christmas, I’m gonna share five books I’d buy other people for Christmas, even if they’re as picky as me!
So, without any further ado, here are the Top 5 books I’d want give for Christmas!
