Games of Thrones Book Tag

This summer, I decided it was about time that I watched Game of Thrones all the way through, and I am hooked! I just so happened to stumbled upon this tag on Sara’s blog, The Bibliophagist. It was perfect timing!

HOUSE LANNISTER: HEAR ME ROAR

NAME A BOOK THAT YOU ORIGINALLY LOVED, BUT UPON A RE-READ REALIZED THAT IT WASN’T SO GREAT AFTER ALL.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

17453983. sy475

I read Anna and the French Kiss when it first came out and it was probably my first YA contemporary romance. I vividly remember speeding through the story and staying up late to finish it- I could not get enough! Years later, I thought I would continue on with the series so I tried to reread Anna and the French Kiss and I could not get through it. YA contemporary romance has come a long way in the last ten years and it is awesome to see!

HOUSE STARK: WINTER IS COMING

NAME YOUR MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK RELEASE FOR 2020.

Harley in the Sky by Akemi Dawn Bowman

38326343. sy475

Akemi Dawn Bowman’s debut novel, Starfish, is one of my favourite YA novels, so I was thrilled to year that she has a new book coming out in 2020. I was even more excited when I read that the main character joins a travelling circus- one of my favourite settings!

HOUSE TARGARYEN: FIRE AND BLOOD

NAME A BOOK THAT YOU FELT COMPLETELY SLAYED WITH FANTASTIC CHARACTERS, PLOT, PACING, ETC.

Recursion by Blake Crouch

42046112

Blake Crouch always nails plot and pacing, but what I really thought was special about Recursion was just how much I cared about the characters. When there is so much action and suspense it in a story, it is easy for character development to take a backseat, but Crouch does not allow this to happen. His characters have depth, interesting backstories, and believable motivations.

HOUSE BARATHEON: OURS IS THE FURY

NAME A BOOK THAT ENDED WITH A CLIFFHANGER ENDING THAT GENUINELY PISSED YOU OFF.

City of Bones by Cassandra Claire

256683. sy475

If you have read this book than you know why I was so uncomfortable with the cliffhanger ending! I still do not quite understand what the point of that was, but I guess it kind of fits with some things that happen in Game of Thrones!

HOUSE MARTELL: UNBOWED. UNBENT. UNBROKEN.

NAME A BOOK, OR BOOK SERIES, THAT’S BEEN ON YOUR TBR SINCE THE DAWN OF TIME.

The Princess Bride by William Goldman

9525672

Seriously!! The Princess Bride has been on my TBR since I was a teenager! At this point, who knows if I will ever get to it, but I would love to eventually! It is just so well-loved, what if I hate it?!

HOUSE BOLTON: OUR BLADES ARE SHARP

NAME THE MOST GRAPHIC OR DISTURBING BOOK THAT YOU’VE EVER READ.

Helter Skelter: The True Story of The Manson Murders

105992

Real life can be more disturbing than fiction, and I often find that to be the case when I read true crime. It is often hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that real people committed such vile and horrible acts. Of all of the true crime that I have read, Helter Skelter is the one that has haunted me the most. Charles Manson was completely sadistic and it is scary to think how many people were devoted to him.

HOUSE TYRELL: GROWING STRONG

NAME A BOOK OR BOOK SERIES, THAT GETS BETTER AND BETTER WITH EVERY RE-READ.

Life of Pie by Yann Martel

4214
Life of Pi is one of the few books that I have ever reread, and that is because I take something different from it every single time. It is ironic, because I picked it up and put it down a few times before I really got in to it, and it is now an all-time favourite. It also has one of my favourite endings- I think it is absolutely genius!

Who is your favourite character on Game of Thrones? I love so many that I can not decide. I am on season six at the moment, so no spoilers (even though, let’s be honest- I have been spoiled for a lot at this point). kkbLogo

  1. Ooh this is a great tag! I love Theon and Sansa, they’re probably my favourite characters. My housemates are currently in Dubrovnik where most of the King’s Landing scenes were filmed but neither of them have ever watched the show so it’s completely wasted on them, so frustrating!! Enjoy the rest of the show (if you can, boy it gets dark!)

  2. I love Game Of Thrones (: and I do want to also read the books sometime but I’m kind of worried about picking them up too 😅 I can absolutely relate to bring afraid to pick up a well loved book in case you don’t enjoy it – I hope you do end up enjoying the book if you do ever get around to reading it though.

      1. Yes I’ve heard the same from another blogger too. So I do plan to read them but also want to pick up a few other books first.

        I haven’t read or seen it at all either so you’re not alone at least. But I can relate to that feeling with several books.
