Thoughts I Have When A Book Character Dies

Hello everyone!

Welcome to the first edition of this newly formed feature: Off Tangent Thoughts where I’ll let present before you a list of my crazy, fanatic thoughts on bookish events and situations because apparently you find them hilarious. My original post that sparked this idea was Thoughts I Have While Reading A Slow-Burn Romance and my notifications absolutely blew up after that.

Hence this series.

Have fun taking a peek inside my psychotic fangirl mind!

—> so you’re saying they died in vain? Yeah let me just go stab myself

—> hello yes, I understand you don’t deal in necromancy but can you take my soul and just bring this character back to life?

Paying due respect to all the characters who died in front of my eyes(aka while I was reading) and took a part of my soul with them.

  2. Okay I love this new feature already! You’ve perfectly summed up my thoughts every time one of my favorite characters dies! Sometimes I’m even so upset that I say β€œscrew spoilers” and turn to Google to see if they’ll come back to life. 😭 I’m so glad I found your blog through Twitter β€” I can’t wait to see more of these posts, haha!

  3. Oh my god this post both cracked me up and hurt my soul. And AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA “no nothing happened mom, my soul just got ripped in half” is such a mood. I was bawling over a book the other day and my dad was so concerned.

  4. To be honest, I never really freak out when a book character dies? I guess I never get emotionally attached enough, but never say never. Maybe 2019 will be the year. I did almost cry after Infinity War though, so that counts I suppose.
