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.
- Mention the creator Orang-utan Librarian so they can see all your your answers
- Answer all the questions
- Tag people and keep it going!
Part 1: Book Questions
“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 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 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!
“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!
“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!
“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.
“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!
“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!
