Wow, it has been a long time since I’ve done a book tag. Thank you so much to Alexandra @ Whimsy Pages for tagging me! As I’m sure most of you have figured out, I’m a huge fan of Game of Thrones. And while there were a few things I really enjoyed about the season finale (and final season in general), I was mostly left feeling disappointed and lost. I have a lot of unanswered questions and I’m hoping the ending GRRM has is a little more fleshed out and fully explained (or totally different, let’s be honest here). Anyway, since I love all things GoT, I’m super excited to be doing this book tag!
This tag was created by orang-utan librarian!
“WE DO NOT SOW” – A BOOK YOU WOULD NOT BE WILLING TO INVEST IN
Crescent City by Sarah J. Maas. But really any upcoming book written by her. I have a lot of issues with her writing and the recurring themes she uses in all of her stories.
“FAMILY. DUTY. HONOUR.” – A BOOK ABOUT STRONG FAMILY TIES
I recently finished Finale (Caraval #3) and I absolutely adore the loving relationship between sisters, Tella and Scarlett.
“WINTER IS COMING” – YOUR FAVORITE WINTER READ
Echo North by Joanna Ruth Meyers and The Bear and the Nightingale series by Katherine Arden. Both have snowy settings, atmospheric writing, are inspired by fairytales, and have a dreamy quality to them when reading!
“OURS IS THE FURY” – A BOOK THAT MADE YOU FURIOUS.
Hmm, there are a few different books throughout the years that have truly angered me. I’ll never forget accidently ripping a page out of Reached (Matched #3) by Allie Condie as I turned the page furiously. Also, The Crown (The Selection #5) by Kiera Cass and Dawn of Legends (Blood of Gods and Royals #4) by Eleanor Herman were both t e r r i b l e conclusions to their respective series and had so many moments of WTF that I end up quitting both of them midway through.
“FIRE AND BLOOD” – A BOOK THAT PRODUCED STRONG EMOTIONS IN YOU.
I’ve come to the conclusion that I am an emotional reader. However, I will never get over the feelings I felt after reading The Bird and the Blade by Megan Bannen. I even knew going into the book what to expect and was still wrecked by the ending. I’m getting emotional just thinking about it. You can read a review of this amazing book here.
“A LANNISTER ALWAYS PAYS HIS DEBTS” – A BOOK YOU FEEL INDEBTED TO.
There are a lot of books from my youth that helped me become the reader I am today, but The Magic Treehouse series by Mary Pope Osborne have a particular spot in my heart and really cemented my love of adventure/fantasy and nurtured my imagination.
WOULD YOU WIN OR DIE?
I’ll be the optimist and say I’d win.
WHAT HOUSE ARE YOU IN?
House Stark 🐺
I’m not even going to take the quiz because there’s literally no other house I would ever feel like I belonged to.
