    Good morning bookworms! This post is part of Bookending Summer 2019, which is organized by Sam & Clo! My prompt for today, “Bookcation” is hosted by Charvi @ Not Just Fiction!

(Nothing but sunshine, puppies and rainbows here, my loves! 😁) So, what is it about main character deaths that I absolutely live for? For me,…
