Happy Monday everyone! Today I will be doing a very special book tag! As it was the LAST EVER Game of Thrones episode yesterday, I thought I will do the Game of Thrones Book Tag! I saw this book tag on Books in the Skye and thought it would be awesome to do so here it is. Hope you enjoy.
Game of Thrones Book Tag
HOUSE LANNISTER: HEAR ME ROAR
NAME A BOOK THAT YOU ORIGINALLY LOVED, BUT UPON A RE-READ REALISED THAT IT WASN’T SO GREAT AFTER ALL.
For this one, I would have to say Ruined by Amy Tintera. Don’t get me wrong, I loved this book when I first read it, but I’ve reread it twice? now and honestly there’s just something not right about it. Even though I have seen faults with this book and its sequel, I am still interested in seeing how this trilogy will end in Allied.
HOUSE STARK: WINTER IS COMING
NAME YOUR MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK RELEASE FOR 2019.
I would have to say Darkdawn by Jay Kristoff. This book has been on my anticipated list for over a year now and I can’t believe this book is nearly in my grasp! Only 4 months left and this book is coming out and I know this book will destroy me. Especially with the things the author is saying about it…I am ready.
HOUSE TARGARYEN: FIRE AND BLOOD
NAME A BOOK THAT YOU FELT COMPLETELY SLAYED WITH FANTASTIC CHARACTERS, PLOT, PACING, ETC.
The Shadow of What Was Lost by James Islington. This book was amazing from start to finish. All of the characters added something to the story, the plot was amazing and obviously, the whole journey aspect of this book was written amazingly! You guys should definitely check this book and its sequel out before the third and final book is out this year!
HOUSE BARATHEON: OURS IS THE FURY
NAME A BOOK THAT ENDED WITH A CLIFFHANGER ENDING THAT GENUINELY PISSED YOU OFF.
From my recently read books this year, this one was an easy one to pick. The Chosen Champion by Elise Kova fits this question so well. I love all of the books I’ve read by Elise Kova. But the one thing that does annoy me is the cliffhangers in her books. Especially in this book, I just wanted more pages. Thankfully we don’t have to wait a year or so until the next book comes out. But if the cliffhangers could be easier that would be great!
HOUSE MARTELL: UNBOWED. UNBENT. UNBROKEN.
NAME A BOOK, OR BOOK SERIES, THAT’S BEEN ON YOUR TBR SINCE THE DAWN OF TIME.
Who would have thought I would say Game of Thrones in the Game of Thrones book tag? But yes I have had my copy of Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin for so many years now and I just want to read it. Whether its because I would have to wait for forever before he finishes writing Winds of Winters and Dream of Spring, but I just haven’t gotten to this book yet.
I do fancy reading it now though. This could be because of how this season has gone but I do want to get into this series soon. Hopefully this year I will be able to do it. Let’s wait and see!
HOUSE BOLTON: OUR BLADES ARE SHARP
NAME THE MOST GRAPHIC OR DISTURBING BOOK THAT YOU’VE EVER READ.
For this one, I would have to say the graphic novel I just finished and that was Monstress: Awakening by Marjorie M. Liu. This book was so gory and awesome. I love it. Obviously, within the graphic novel format authors can easily portray these themes a lot easier than in written format. However, definitely within Grimdark fantasy books (e.g. The Poppy War by R.j. Kuang), it can be seen too.
HOUSE TYRELL: GROWING STRONG
NAME A BOOK OR BOOK SERIES, THAT GETS BETTER AND BETTER WITH EVERY RE-READ.
Oh boi, this one is hard! Or is it easy? I would have to say Malice by John Gwynne. This book was amazing when I read it. But after rereading it for a second time it was like so good. Definitely a great book to reread!
So that was my answers to the Game of Thrones book tag! I didn’t realise how many fantasy books I have used to answer this book tag. But hey Game of Thrones is a high fantasy book, so why not answer its book tag with high fantasy and fantasy books? Hope you enjoy this tag. It was definitely a good way to say goodbye to this show. Now I’m off to watch the season finale!
till next time readers
