Top 5 Tuesday: books about a death

Hey, guys!
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!

#1 The Lovely Bones

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.

#3 Kingdom of the Wicked

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!

#4 Sanctuary

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!

#5 Ready Player One

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. 😅

  1. Oh my gosh — I can’t believe I forgot about Kingdom of the Wicked!! I feel like my post this week would have been very different if I had written it from home, instead of on holidays!!
    Love your list, as usual, and I hope you had fun with this topic 💕
    (Also, just an FYI, your pingbacks haven’t been coming through — not sure what’s happening?! x)
