    Good morning bookworms! This morning I am so excited to come to you with this tag!! I had seen it doing the rounds for AGES and was somewhat sad (and slightly miffed 😂) that no one had tagged me in it.

I thought I’d start off with something happy… MAIN CHARACTER DEATHS. (Nothing but sunshine, puppies and rainbows here, my loves! 😁) So, what is it about main character deaths that I absolutely live for? For me,…
