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!

Tag people and keep it going!
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??? 😀
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.
