Top 10 Fictional Deaths

I heard once that November is the month of the dead, and even tough I’m too lazy to check this fact on the web, I love to spread this “fact” to as may people as I can. So hello, everyone! November is the month of the dead! And for that reason my Top 10 is about Fictional Deaths!

Note 1: These are NOT characters I enjoyed seeing dying, ON THE CONTRARY.

Note 2: SPOILER ALERTS, obviously. (I’m going to do my best not to name who died, except for very popular titles that I assume everybody read.)

TOP 10 Fictional deaths

10. If I Stay, Gayle Forman

So, I just realized she doesn’t die at the end–oups. But the first chapter of this book really made an impact on me, and she kind of dies at the beginning, and also the rest of her family dies, so, you know. Death is a major part of this book, and it was really sad and everything.


9. Madame Bovary, Gustave Flaubert

I read this when I was pretty young, and I was kind of expecting it to be a boring classic. I sure did NOT expect it to go that way. (I’ve actually managed not to spoil this one at all, guys!)

8. Mockingjay, Suzanne Collins

Okay, so this one I realize is actually a death that I enjoyed. (It’s my Top 10, I do as I want, hehe.) Remember that scene when everybody expects Katniss to kill Snow, and she shoots Coin instead? OH MY GOD I DIDN’T SEE IT COMING AT ALL. And for that reason it has a place in this Top 10. (Also, obviously it broke my heart when Prim dies, AND Finnick. So yeah, definitely Mockingjay.)

7. Extraordinary Means, Robyn Schneider

6. Looking for Alaska + TFIOS, John Green

Ahhhh, John. Don’t you enjoy making me cry.

5. Allegiant, Veronica Roth

OH MY GOD THAT ENDING. I did NOT see it coming. And then the ashes thrown while ziplining oh my god that was too much for me. 😦


4. The Book Thief, Marcus Zusak

3. Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling

Snape, and Dumbledore, and Sirius, and Fred, and Dobby, and Lupin, and OH MY GOD TOO MANY FRIENDS PLEASE MY HEART I CAN’T.


2. My Sister’s Keeper, Jodi Picoult



1. All the Bright Places, Jennifer Niven

Probably the biggest book grief I’ve ever had, ever. I was in denial for a week, and then the pain hit me like a b**ch. Still can’t believe it happened.

That’s it for me! 

Let me know in the comments what fictional deaths hurt you the most!

Thanks for reading!

  1. I’ve read 9, 8, and 3 from your list.
    9 – I agree, I was not expecting it to be as tragic as it was. I surprisingly loved it.
    8 – THAT WHOLE TRILOGY WAS OMFG…. ugh, I loved it. I need to read it again. And Finnick, I legit cried when I read that part. But Coin… yep, totally agree with you on her hahaha
    3 – I’m *that* person who didn’t care much for the series (it was alright), but read all of them anyway because I had started them with my little sister (back when she was starting to read) and I didn’t want to not complete the whole thing. haha

    Other books’ character deaths that hit me:
    – Uncle Tom in Stowe’s “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”
    – Beth in Alcott’s “Little Women” (I read this when I was quite young)
    – Juliet in Oliver’s “Before I Fall” (one of the days), and also Sam (at the end, when she changed for the better)
    – several characters in Sinclair’s “The Jungle” (that book is just a depressing hot mess in general)

    “I WAS UNAWARE I CONTAINED SO MUCH FLUID.” <— I think that this quote of yours alone has me interested enough to read the book associated with that! haha

  2. Ahahah your entire comment is perfect! Sorry I’m answering so late. I’m in Nicaragua and don’t always have access to WiFi. I’m going to have to add all those books to my TBR, Marica! ahah
    You’re “that person” heh? ahahah. It’s great that you read it with your sister. My oldest sister was the one who first read me the books, too!
