Top Ten Tuesday: Characters Who Have Lost Someone


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.  This week's topic is the top ten books featuring characters who BLANK.  It's been such a busy week that I haven't had time to think of a topic, so I'm just going to do one of the examples given.  So here is my top ten book characters who have lost someone at the start of/before the book/series.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)
Harry Potter
his mother and father

The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Charlie, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
his aunt and best friend

Warm Bodies
Julie, Warm Bodies
her mother

Into the Darkness (Darkness Falls #1)
Phoenix, Into the Darkness
her family

Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna, #1)
Cas, Anna Dressed in Blood
his father

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)
Katniss, The Hunger Games
her father

The Book Thief
Liesel, The Book Thief
her mother, father and brother

The Princess Bride
Buttercup, The Princess Bride
Westley

P.S. I Love You
Holly, P.S. I Love You
her husband, Gerry

  4. I have been meaning to start reading that series. I was put off by the poofy dress on the cover. I thought it was a different kind of story than it is. I'm on the linky if you want to see what I'm teasing this week. Happy reading!
