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

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

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.

“I’m Louise as in geez Louise, you’re the best!”

You know, the Bob’s Burgers comics by Chad Brewster could’ve been really awesome if he knew how to play with the characters in a way that’s similar to the TV show.

But they’re not.

In my opinion Bob’s Burgers is the best show out there and I just thought of searching for the comics and I started reading them because I thought that maybe they’re inspired from the episodes and I could have some extra fun. Actually, in the comics you will find some short stories for every person of the family. And they’re not that good.

In every comic book there’s the same title for every story and the only thing that’s changing is the plot. I’ve only read the first 2 issues and then I abandoned the series cause it isn’t catchy at all and I really wasn’t curious if something better would come up.

Rating: 1,5/5. I’m sorry, I really wish it was better.

“I’m a neat monster”.

Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay.

Rating: 3/5.

If you wanna watch the show, I warn you: you will have to go on a binge because one episode of Dexter is never enough.

Lol, had to post it

This first book was just like watching again the first season, with a few more details. I thought it’s awesome to be in this lovely sociopath’s mind. I always loved his character, thoughts and comebacks.

If you’re a fan of the show tho’, stick to the show. It’s better. But just for your curiosity and if you want to have more Dexter in your life, go for the book too. It has only 280 pages so you can finish it up pretty quick and continue watching the show.
