Feature and Follow Friday #47 - Top Five Death Scenes

A weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read & Parajunkee's View

How it Works: 

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work? First you visit the blogs of our illustrious hosts and leave your name on the post using using the linky tools, then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to Wordpress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don't have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.

This Week's Question: 

Characters, sometimes our favorites, die during books. If you'd get to choose who would you bring back? - Submitted by Howling for Books   

This Week's Answer: 

Beware of Spoilers!!!! I like spoilers but I know most people don't so I have hidden the character name, highlight it to see who it is but you have been warned!

Can I say everyone? I am such an emotional wreck all the time that I sob like a baby through most death scenes. But in the interest of not overwhelming you in pain and sadness here are the ones that still really stick with me and hit me hard. My top 5 death scenes, get the tissues ready!

- Beth in Little Women which gets me ever single time, without fail! 
- Fred in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows because it was so senseless! 
- Julia aka Verity in Code Name Verity because I still think they wouldn't possibly go through with it! 
- Daniel in Strange and Ever After because it was such a heroic and perfectly in character death! 
- Last but certainly not least Vin and Elend in The Hero of Ages because it was both of them in the span of twenty pages and THE SCENE WITH THE DAISIES! 

Excuse me while I sob into a puddle of my own tears and resent this question forever! Help me wallow on the comments section by telling me how much these deaths wrecked you. Or tell me what your most emotional death scenes were. Misery loves company! Leave me your thoughts in a comment.

 And remember this is a blog hop so take a look around and if you like what you see give me a follow and leave me a comment so I can follow back. I am indifferent to the manner in which you follow so pick your poison: GFC, Bloglovin, and/or Twitter.

Thanks for dropping by, Happy FF and HAPPY READING!


  1. Oh Beth, her death was a tear-jerker -- it even made Joey Tribbiani cry. The Deathly Hallows was a bit of a cryfest too, I even sniffled when Hedwig pasted away. I was a wreak!

  2. I haven't read any of those! I still can't think of any that died that bothered me! I hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Well every death in HP had me sobbing uncontrollably. Especially in that last book! Especially with THAT character!! And OOOOOOMG Strange and Ever After! I was a sobbing hot mess when I read that! Thank goodness I was alone or I'd freak people out! I sorta mentioned that one but didn't name names or series or author names since it's a recent(ish) release. But yeah...think that one was my latest death and book that caused me to cry like a freaking baby!

    And really, visiting all these posts today are getting me a little watery eyed! Maybe this question wasn't such a good idea! ;)

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!
