The Ultimate Game of Thrones Book Tag | Only one episode left!

I stumbled upon the Game of Thrones Book Tag first on The Awkward Book Blogger, and immediately saved that post to not forget and participate in this tag. Because (as you probably already know) I’m LOVING the final season of Game of Thrones. There is only one more episode to go which makes me very sad, but at the same time, I’m glad that this whole story has come to the end.

After looking through the questions, I realized that I didn’t have an answer to most of them! Which sucks when you are doing a tag and are supposed to answer the questions. 😀 So I went googling!

As a result, I found these two posts of the Ultimate Game of Thrones Book Tag, done by Annemieke and Drew. And that is the tag I’m doing today!

PART 1: Book Questions

“We do not sow” – A book you would not be willing to invest in

Any new books written by Sarah J. Maas or Cassandra Clare. I grew out of their writing and stories. But I’m also debating if I should buy «Wicked Saints» by Emily A. Duncan. I was very excited to read this book and it is still on my TBR list, but there have been more and more reviews that say how disappointed they were with this novel. I’m very unsure if I want to invest in it.

“Family. Duty. Honour.” – A book about strong family ties

I just browsed through my “read” shelf on GoodReads and didn’t find a single book with strong family ties. But! I found quite a lot with some dysfunctional families, centered around the family relationships, for example – «The Leavers» by Lisa Ko and «All the Good Things» by Clare Fisher.

“Winter is coming” – Your favorite Winter read

Oh, this is easy! «The Bear and the Nightingale» by Katherine Arden! First of all, this is an amazing fantasy series inspired by Russian folklore, and secondly, because one of the inspirations was the fairytale about Morozko (the winter lord) and the whole story is set in a cold snowy Russian village.

“Ours is the fury” – A book that made you furious.

I was furious at myself for picking up certain books because they made me so frustrated. You know when you read the book and keep rolling your eyes due to all the cheesiness??? That’s how I felt during «A Court of Thorns and Roses» by Sarah J. Maas.

“Fire and blood” – A book that produced strong emotions in you.

«Pax» by Sara Pennypacker, Jon Klassen. Even before reading it, I knew I’d be a complete emotional wreck. You can read my full review here (and see how much I sobbed while reading this book).

“A Lannister always pays his debts” – A book you feel indebted to.

This will go to all the books I read when I was little that made me fall in love with reading. I’m sure there were a lot of great books, but the most memorable one was «The Little Prince» by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry! At first, I hated this book! My parents made me read this when I was too young for it, it was more to practice reading out loud than to understand the story. But when we picked it up at school for our literature class, I immediately fell in love with the profoundness of this short story. It teaches us so much!

PART 2:  My Game of Thrones

Would you win or die?

I want to say that I’d win. Or at least stay alive to see who wins. But I’m pretty sure that I wouldn’t survive till the end.

What House are you in? I took this quiz to find out!

Apparently, I belong to house Tyrell! What??? 😀

Tyrell

Ah, the Tyrells. So pretty, so sweet, so delightfully ruthless underneath. You’re not just good at playing the game of thrones, you enjoy the hell out of it. Where others grab their swords, you hand out alms and patiently draw up marriage contracts. But you also have your family’s back, and they have yours – it’s the rest of the world that needs to watch out for your thorns.

  1. I can’t believe Game of Thrones is coming to an end to be honest– I’m not ready but also very ready!!
    I love the house graphics that you used!! Yes the more I think back to ACOTAR the more frustrating I find it– I have quite a few issues with it but I have read the entire series and I like some aspects but I can definitely understand why it makes people angry.
    I’ve never read The Little Prince but I know many who love it so maybe I should give it a go!!
    Haha– winning in game of thrones is hard !! I like the house Tyrell and I like the description it has for the house!!
    Thank you so much for tagging me– I will give this tag a go (if I survive the last episode of Game of Thrones that is haha)
    Great tag!!

    1. I feel exactly the same! I’m NOT ready for the final episode! How many more people are going to die?!
      But at the same time, I want for this whole epic story to finally be over.

      Some of my friends read the books and say they are much better than the show. And since I do own the full book set, I might give them another try (maybe next year, when I miss the TV show. Ahaha)

  2. Thank you for tagging me! 😀 I can’t wait to do this, as I was reading the prompts I could see my answers forming in my head!
    It still seems crazy that the show is ending! I wonder if Martin is truly going to finish the books, since he hasn’t finished writing them! 😛
    The Little Prince! I still need to read that in English! Such a good book! 🙂 I can already tell you I would die I don’t think I’d ever win… I don’t think I’m strong enough 😛

    1. 😀 I haven’t seen the last episode yet (waiting for my bf to come back from his training…), we will be watching it tonight! But most of my friends are disappointed.. Oh my.

      I’m actually thinking of reading the books after the show is over, just to see the diferences 😀

      1. I’ve heard a lot of people have been disappointed by it… and by the whole season. That’s unfortunate! I can’t wait to get to it! 🙂

        I’ve read the first four, but I don’t remember a lot. I do remember the first season and the first book lining up really, really well.

        1. To think GRRM hasn’t even finished the books I wonder how inspired by the TV show it will be! But I’m in agreement, I would like to read the books once I finish season eight.
          I’m glad to hear you weren’t too disappointed by the ending since so many have been!

    1. I wasn’t as disappointed by it as other people, I guess 😀 It was alright. Did you like it?
      Sorry, it took me so long to answer your comment! It ended up in the spam for some reason, and I’m very bad at keeping up with my spam box 😀
