The Ultimate Game of Thrones Book Tag

I missed doing a book tag and I recently found this fun GOT book tag on The Orangutan Librarian‘s blog. Feel free to do it too!

PART I

“We DO NOT SOW”- A BOOK YOU WOULD NOT BE WILLING TO INVEST IN

61he4UHB8dL._SY879_

Crime and Punishment. I mean, I tried reading it and I started it pretty ambitious but it was an impossible battle for me. It’s just not my type and probably I won’t try reading any Dostoyevsky any time soon. I might give Demons a shot tho’ but I’m not really sure about that.

 

“FAMILY. DUTY. HONOR.” – A BOOK ABOUT STRONG FAMILY TIES

51IDDaYVlRL._SY679_

I personally love the relationship between Scarlett and Tella from the Caraval series by Stephanie Garber. I’ve read many books with strong family ties but this one must be one of my favorites or one that stuck with me for the longest. I love them both as characters but also the series is a must-read!

 

“WINTER IS COMING” – YOUR FAVORITE WINTER READ

71mmvCs3V6L._SY679_

During winter I  usually love reading holiday love stories and my favorite one so far is Let it Snow by John Green, it’s an anthology of three love stories that’s super adorable and they actually connect which was a factor that actually made me love it this much.

 

“OURS IS THE FURY” – A BOOK THAT MADE YOU FURIOUS

Fight Club 2. I had some high expectations, I’m pretty sure lots of people love Fight Club and knowing there’s a sequel to the story and that it’s a comic book too it just makes you more excited. Joke’s on me because it was awful lol. It started promising but as you get more into it it gets worse and super weird so stay away from it.

 

“FIRE AND BLOOD” – A BOOK THAT PRODUCED STRONG EMOTIONS IN YOU

Free-Shipping-House-Targaryen-of-King-s-Landing-Fire-and-Blood-A-Song-of-Ice-and

Whenever I think of the word “emotions” the only books that come into my mind are We Were Liars by E. Lockhart and All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. It’s difficult to pick just one.

 

“A LANNISTER ALWAYS PAYS HIS DEBTS” – A BOOK YOU FEEL INDEBTED TO

31a701c43bbf7cd9e5973fd79c7671ec

One of the books I will always feel indebted to will be Wizard of Oz as I believe this was one of the first fictional books that made me fall in love with literature and it’s forever one of my favorite children books that I will surely read my kids in the future.

 

 PART II – MY GAME OF THRONES.

WOULD YOU WIN OR DIE?

For real now I think I’d die cause I’d move too slow, I wish I could be as cool as Arya or Brienne.

WHAT HOUSE ARE YOU IN?

I took this quiz and apparently I belong to the Lannisters:

Hey, guess what? You’re rich! Congratulations. You can buy all the wine and pleasant company you want, which is very useful as the life of a Lannister isn’t exactly stress-free. You are ambitious, good at politics, and generally loyal to family members, at least in public. But you’re also under a lot of pressure, so when things go wrong, they can go VERY wrong, very quickly. Maybe consider investing in a privy door with a lock?

 

This was a super fun book tag, I’m looking forward to doing many more.

A-Z Book Tag

Hey guys, I’ve never done a book tag before and I got really excited when I stumbled upon this one from mudandstars even though I haven’t been tagged, I just wanna play along cause it seems really fun and interesting lol. Here we go:

Author you’ve read the most books from: That’s Stephen King, of course. I don’t keep track of the number but I might have reached 14 books written by him. One of my reading goals is to read all of his books, wish me luck!

Best sequel: Glass Sword, Victoria Aveyard. I’m in love so far with the series and I was really surprised by how awesome the sequel was.

Currently reading: I’ve been reading Papillon by Henri Charriere but I just abandoned it cause it wasn’t really my style at all. I tried tho. Right now I started Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers.

Drink of choice while reading: I enjoy drinking a cup of tea from time to time because I feel sick from coffee but I won’t ever refuse hot chocolate.

Ereader or physical: Ereader. I love my kindle so much and since I travel a lot it’s pretty hard to carry all the books with me and maybe I won’t be in the mood to read any of the books I brought with me so if I have them all on my kindle it’s super convenient. I love reading actual books too especially if they’re graphic novels but my every day buddy is the kindle. I don’t really get all the hate thrown at ereaders and why some of the people feel superior just because they only read physical books and don’t “degrade” themselves to technology. A book is a book no matter what form it has.

Fictional character you probably would’ve dated in highschool: My number one choice right now is Will from Slammed by Colleen Hoover. I loved him. I used to swoon over Finn from All the Bright Places but I don’t think I would’ve been able to deal with a suicidal guy. WILL IS THE COOLEST ANYWAYSSSS.

Glad you gave this book a chance: Jane Eyre. I’m not a fan of classics and I hardly get myself to read one but Jane Eyre together with Wuthering Heights made me be more open to classics and appreciate them more. Jane Eyre is one of my favorite classics.

Hidden gem book: The Three O’clock in the Morning Sessions by Angie Martin. I don’t actually know how hidden this one is but I know it’s far from popular tho it deserves some more popularity. It’s a poetry book and it was awesome how she combined poetry with short stories and you won’t be disappointed by her writing style either. It’s pretty deep and it just made me read it in one sitting. I got it for free on the amazon kindle store.

4124SME919L

Important moment in your reading life: Probably when I got my kindle. It made it so easier for me to read all the books that I wanted and get them so quickly! It’s also a birthday present from my friends and I still have it for 3 years and I hope I won’t ever have to get rid of it. I moved to USA since then and I miss them a lot and now I appreciate it so much more than I used to when I was still at home.

Just finished: Point of Retreat, Colleen Hoover. I was too obsessed with Lake and Will from the first book so I couldn’t get over it until I’ve read the second one and soon I’m gonna start reading the third one.

Kind of books you won’t read: Fantasy and biographies (except a few of them but generally I get bored easily).

Longest book you’ve read: Stephen King’s IT (click the title for the review). Very happy it wasn’t shorter.

Major book hangover because of: I have to decide between two Colleen Hoover books (lol I mention her so often). It’s either It Ends With Us or Slammed. Can I just blame the hangovers on Colleen Hoover in general?

Number of bookcases you own: None yet since I just moved into a new place. I keep buying books but I’m gonna build as many as I need with a little help from my husband. Can’t wait! I might post updates on it when we start working on it.

One book you have read multiple times: George Orwell’s 1984. The first book that turned me into this book ape that I am now.

5470

Preferred  place to read: My bed. All cozy.

Quote that gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read: I actually have a notebook where I write all the quotes I stumble upon in my books so this is a pretty hard decision to just choose one but I’m gonna share the first one that I thought of right now: “Stay gold, Pony Boy, stay gold.”

Gotta love The Outsiders.

Reading Regret: Sometimes I regret that I can’t get myself into reading more serious books like philosophy and researches and stuff like that.

Series you started and need to finish: THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS!! I have only one book left of it so it’s not that bad but besides this series I have a few more that I have to deal with. I like to complete the series but I don’t know if I can finish everything that I started especially when a long time passed by and I don’t even remember what happened in the previous book(s). But The Mortal Instruments it’s my top priority.

Three all time faves: George Orwell’s 1984, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline and It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover (take a shot every time I mention her).

Unapologetic fangirl for: Harry Potter. House Hufflepuff (Pottermore said that so it must be true).

Very excited for this release more than all others: The sequel of Caraval called Legendary by Stephanie Garber. May 2018 can’t come soon enough.

Worst bookish habit: Reading in bed and falling asleep no matter what time of day it is. I hate that.

Your latest book purchase: The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy, The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials and Divergent.

Zzz-snatcher book (a book that kept you up really late): One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey. Once you pick it up it’s done, you don’t leave it until you finish it.

Alright so this is my first book tag that I’ve done and I’ve had fun doing this. I can’t wait until the next one! Hope you guys enjoyed it and discovered some books you didn’t know through this.
