Top Ten Tuesday: Let me Go

 

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish


BOOKS WHERE THE MAIN CHARACTER IS BEING HELD CAPTIVE


Flowers in the Attic
Mother locks her kids upstairs in the attic.
 The Compound
Father locks his family in a compound claiming a nuclear explosion.
 Living Dead Girl
 Ten year old kidnapped during a school excursion.
 Stolen
 Sixteen-year-old kidnapped from an airport.
 Lockdown
 Falsely incriminated, Alex is held prisoner in an underground jail.

 Pandemonium
Lena and Julian are both held captive. Didn't think it was possible to mix in romance with captivity, but this book does it very well.
 Fever
 Rhine is held captive by a carnival mistress.

Origin
Unable to go outside, Pia lives in a secluded scientific building as an experiment.

  1. I tried to listen to Living Dead Girl and it was just too much for me. I think it was actually "hearing" that poor girl. I just couldn't do it. Great topic choice! Very original.

    1. I wouldn't be able to hear it either. Too heartwrenching.

  2. Oooh, you though of such a good topic! Although I couldn't do it, because I don't think I ever read a book where the main character is being held captive.

    1. It's trilling, and yet at the same time you can't help but feeling bad for them.

  3. Living Dead Girl was such a struggle for me to read. Just fricken heart-breaking.

    Great choice of topic btw. If my heart can handle it I might check some of these out :)
