It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for a bookish favorites post. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Meeghan over on Meeghan Reads and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
For April’s final T5T post, we’re going to talk about some books that feature a death in their story!
Some of you might have seen the movie based on this book, which is a feast for the eyes. To be honest, I didn’t really like much about the film other than that, but Saoirse Ronan did an amazing job playing the young girl who was murdered. You can probably guess that the book is quite intense!
#2 We have always lived in the Castle
Another day, another murder. The two sisters in We have always lived in the Castle are shunned by the other residents of their quaint little town as the older sister is believed to have murdered the rest of their family.
The events in this novel are set in motion when Vittoria is murdered – which is discovered by her twin sisters Emilia. I have yet to read the other installments in the series, but Kingdom fo the Wicked is soooo good!
Why are all the death I could think of murders? 😭
In this book, witchcraft is quite a normal thing, incorporated into the world as we know it. However, this gets questioned when a young man is murdered. Honestly, the world-building in this blew me away!
Yay, finally a book that begins with a death, but it’s not a murder. At least I don’t think it was – it’s entirely possible my brain decided to forget about that. 😅
