I bet authors don't normally get people complained that their beloved characters survived, but I want to use this post to do that.
10) A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket
I've only read up to 'The Hostile Hospital' in my reread of this series, but there's a lot less death than I remembered. Based on how desperate Count Olaf is to get hold of the Baudelaire fortune, I feel as though murdering on a monthly basis wouldn't phase him in the slightest.
9) 'Stealing Snow' by Danielle Paige
This book has a love square. A FREAKING SQUARE. I wanted one of the love interests to get killed (preferably Snow...) so it would put an end to her constantly changing her mind about who she was interested in.
7) 'Viral' by Helen Fitzgerald
6) 'The Sin Eater's Daughter' by Melinda Salisbury
5) 'Lying About Last Summer' by Sue Wallman
4) 'The Dark and Hollow Places' by Carrie Ryan
3) 'The Age of Innocence' by Edith Wharton
2) 'The Fate of the Tearling' by Erika Johansen
1) 'Red Rising' by Pierce Brown
I love all of the characters in the Red Rising series, but I love them so much that I want Pierce to tear my heart out and stomp all over it by murdering them all. Some of the characters I adored died throughout this series, but I wanted even more. I wanted to drown in my own tears while reading this.
I hope you enjoyed this murderously fun Top Ten Tuesday! Which books do you wish had more death?
