Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke And The Bookish where bloggers and readers create a list of books based on a weekly list theme.
Today’s topic was: Top Ten Characters who X... We got to play around with this list and sort of choose our own list. So I decided on my Top Ten Characters That I Loved But Sadly Are No More.
If I happen to share similar favourite characters to you in a series or a book, you should probably start to worry… because my favourite characters have a tendency to be killed of at some point. Thus this list is compiled of some characters that I loved (and lost!) – they are not necessarily main characters, or likeable ones, but for whatever reason they all moved me at some point or another. In fact for most of them, I’m not sure who shed more tears, their book companions or myself over their deaths! This list was actually harder to compile then I thought. There are many many many more characters that I have cried over, but never having listed them before I found it hard to name them all off the top of my head. I’ve missed some of my main ones, I know I have, but this list consists of characters who are all up there on the list.
