The Ultimate Game of Thrones Tag!

GoT

You know you are behind on your tags when multiple people tag you for the same thing hahaha but no, seriously, thank you so much to The Orang-utan Librarian for creating this awesome tag and including me to do it and also for Joey @Thoughts and Afterthoughts for tagging me as well. With the show being back now, I HAD to do get around to The Ultimate Game of Thrones Tag rather sooner than later.

RULES

  1. Mention the creator Orang-utan Librarian so they can see all your your answers
  2. Answer all the questions
  3. Tag people and keep it going!

Part 1: Book Questions

we_do_not_sow_w1

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

So, recently the banishment on Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler has been lifted, but it is a book I would never touch. Not for research or any other reason. I am not interested getting any insight into that man’s head.

fire

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

I assuming that it is no news to anyone that Red Rising did quite the number on me. Many books have let me feel sadness or joy, but Red Rising produced a sort of anger I was not used to before. I can still remember my hands shaking because I was furious

winter

“Winter is coming”- Your favourite winter read

I don’t know what exactly constitutes a winter read, but Landline makes me think of Christmas … so, there’s that!

tully

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

When I think of family, one of my favourite literary families comes to mind – the Garretts from My Life Next Door. Can’t get over how great they are!

tyrell

“Growing strong”- A book you had low expectations of but that grew on you

Before starting Anything You Want, I read the author’s statement on Goodreads. He had gotten a couple of bad reviews and DNFing ones, so I was keeping my expectations really low, but in the end you can’t help but love Taco. It’s one of those books you just have to stick with!

fury

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

Well, I already mentioned Red Rising above, so I am just going to go with Golden Son, the sequel, now.

Martell

“Unbowed. Unbent.Unbroken.”- A book you have unwavering devotion to

The Martian! How else could it be? If I could have a Mark Watney in my life, I totally would!

lannister

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

This is going to sound odd, but I feel really indebted to The Hunger Games. I read those books when I was still in High School and I was absolutely terrified of that one teacher who tormented me in my last two years. That book sort of gave me strength. Just having it near me helped calm my nerves. I channeled my inner Katniss Everdeen!

Part 2: Fan Theories

Who do you want to win Game of Thrones?

I think I am part of a very popular opinion here, where I want Dany and/or Jon to rule together. Tyrion should be the hand, because while I do love him, I am not sure he really has the makings of a King or that he even wants that burden.

Who do you think will make it to the end and who do you think will die?

Where to start??? I already mentioned that I want Dany, Jon and Tyrion alive with the previous statement. Sansa has to live and go off and lead a quiet life with her very kind and non-abusive husband (he does not have to look good, we are beyond that stage). The rest of the Starks better survive too, maybe a little romancing between Arya and Genry – whereever that guy is now. I want Jamie and Brienne to be reunited in the end. Cersei, the Boltons and Greyjoys can go off to die (although I am wavering in terms of Theo. He may yet live). I want Tommen to survive too, for Jamie’s sake, but he has to renounce the throne. The Sparrow and his stupid followers can vanish from that realm as well. Daario I’d let live, but I doubt it. Maybe Littlefinger will survive also. Podrick and Hodor shall survive us all!

Part 3: My Game of Thrones

Would you win or die?

Ha! I have no survival skills at all! I definitely wouldn’t win, I am not cunning enough for that … but, maybe I would still live by the end. Scarred and traumatized, but alive? (That’s just wishful thinking. I would probably be one of the first to die, maybe even in a really ridiculous and not heroic way)

What house are you?

I’m using this quiz, which was used by the Orang-utan Librarian as well and I got: HOUSE STARK!! Wohooo, love them so much! Although the description doesn’t make me any more confident in surviving that realm:

The good news is, you’re a thoroughly decent human being. The bad news is, that is a very dangerous thing to be in Westeros. You are loyal, dutiful, and generally ill at ease among the toxic politics of King’s Landing. Either buckle down and learn to play the game, or get the hell out into more hospitable environments. The North may be freezing, but it also has notably less backstabbing which, bless your little heart, is not exactly your strong suit.

Good news though, I’d probably get a direwolf, so yay to that!

TTT: YA Couples I’d Like to Revisit as Adults

top-ten-tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, if you want to know more about it, you can just click on the name! This week we had some room for interpretation of the topic, because it is as follows:

Ten Childhood Characters You’d Love To Revisit As Adults (ie a novella or something to see what they grew up to be) — you could always just pick YA characters you’ve read recently you wouldn’t mind revisiting in 10 years or so. Or you could pick 10 characters and guess what you think they’d be doing in 10 years or 20 years. OR you could go the other way and wish for coming of age stories for adult characters you love.

Now, I chose to stick with YA characters, couples in particular, that I’d like to see as adults, simply because I couldn’t conjure up too many real children characters. Let’s do this!

Anna and Etienne

Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)I know that throughout the Anna and the French Kiss series we got to see more of Anna and Etienne than we did about any of the other characters, but it still wasn’t enough. I want a short summary of the rest of their lives together – of all the joys and pains that fate brought them and their friends. The others should be mentioned as well of course.

Sam and Jase

My Life Next DoorAren’t Sam and Jase from My Life Next Door the cutest. They had some quarrels (nothing serious, don’t worry) in The Boy Most Likely To, but I would like to think that they can figure out the future together. I think they’ll have a real big family one day.

Daisy and Edmond

How I Live NowDaisy finished the book practically quoting the title, by saying “And that is how I live now.”, but the thing is, I don’t actually know how you live now, Daisy! I just know you are sad and that both, you and Edmond, are a little broken. Could you be fixed? Did you build life for yourselves after the disaster of WWIII? I want to know!

Echo and Noah

Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1)What did I hear about a proposal story that I have no clue as to how to get? (darn it … should have pre-ordered Walk the Edge …) I would love to hear some more about how their paths continued.

Ali and Jace

Tone DeafI am not sure how many of you have read Tone Deaf yet, but Ali and Jace have a special connection that they couldn’t ever have with anyone else. At least I highly doubt it, so they better stayed together for the rest of their lives and led some sort of glorious rockstar life, because that’s what I want to read about.

Emi and Ava

Everything Leads to YouThis is one of the few couples where I am not sure they will stay together forever, but I loved Emi so much. Her job, her personality, she was relatable in all the ways. So, I’d like to think she had a happy life with Ava, both of them becoming hot-shots in Hollywood. I so want to see that … I mean read … I wouldn’t mind a movie either, I guess.

Liesel and Max

The Book ThiefOkay, I am definitely stretching the term “couple” here, aren’t I? But I always thought that they would have made a lovely couple. I don’t care about the age difference, they had something that really bonded them and therefore they belonged together. I know that they stayed friends until the end, so that’s something. I would have loved to see that, too.

Baz and Simon

Carry OnRowell‘s books are never fully concluded and that’s okay … it’s her style of writing, but I would have liked to accompany those guys for a little while longer. So why not a short story collection about their lives? I would have definitely read that.

Cath and Levi

FangirlI had to triple check because I couldn’t believe that the couple mentioned in Landline was Cath and Levi, but they were. I have no idea how people guessed that, it’s a mystery. But instead of just hinting at them, why not give us a whole second book just with their regular life? And maybe Cath becoming a famous author?

Alex and Nadia

City of the BeastsI’ve read the Eagle and Jaguar books such a long time ago and I sure as heck can’t remember everything in detail, EXCEPT that I wanted them together so bad and when they FINALLY go on a date, the series ends. Like how is that fair? So, I need more of their adventures and it will be nice to have them deal with everything actually being all grown up. That was some heavy stuff for children/teens anyway.
