The Listicle Tag

Thanks Katie for the nomination and prompt! Sorry this took me forever to get to, it was harder to find books that deal with grief than I thought.


  • Create your own listicle tag, using the prompt from the person who tagged you.
  • Tag the creator of the post (not-so-modern-girl!) so that she can read all your brilliant posts and see how the joy of listicles is being spread.
  • Nominate as many people as you want!
  • Set those 5 people the subject/prompt of their listicle post!


Catching Fire (Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins

I think Katniss definitely deals with PTSD in this book, which I’m counting as a form of grief. I think really the whole series would count, but mostly this one.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

SO MUCH GRIEF. Everyone dies and it’s horrible. But actually this book is amazing and I highly recommend it.

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

The narrator’s family deals with the grief of her death, especially her dad. It’s interesting to see how they all react to her death differently.

A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki

I think Nao deals with a lot of grief in this book. She’s traumatized about moving back to Japan and the bullying she goes through at school. Her father also has a lot of grief going on.

Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Charlie is dealing with the loss of his aunt and his best friend. It’s about trying to find yourself when grieving and when your whole world has changed.

I nominate: NicoleRachelDee, and Joe (no pressure though!)

And my prompt for you is: Books you’d like to rewrite (any number of books!)

Thanks for reading! xx

  1. Ooh fun topic, thanks for tagging me! I like the ones you chose for your topic too, I LOVED The Kite Runner when I read it ages ago. (I really disliked The Lovely Bones but have long ago accepted that I am in the minority there.)

  2. Katniss is definitely dealing with PTSD! I hadn’t thought of it in quite those terms, but you nailed it.

    Thanks for the tag! I’ll have to think about this a little, but it will be fun to do!
