Part One. Book Questions

“WE DO NOT SOW”

|| A book you would not be willing to invest in ||

House Greyjoy by LiquidSoulDesign

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy — I’ve always wanted to give this book a chance, but it’s not gonna happen. It’s SO LONG!!

“FIRE AND BLOOD”

|| A book that produced strong emotions in you ||

House Targaryen by LiquidSoulDesign

If I’m Being Honest by Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka — This novel was fantastic … I’ve been constantly thinking about it since I finished it. The character development, the acceptance, the beautiful unfolding story … it was all just wonderful!

“WINTER IS COMING”

|| Your favourite winter read ||

Game of Thrones - House Stark by LiquidSoulDesign

Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling — Even though I read these in the summer originally, they give off a nice winter vibe for some reason … maybe because the Christmas and winter portions always seem so magical (no pun intended).

“FAMILY. DUTY. HONOUR”

|| A book about strong family ties ||

House Tully by LiquidSoulDesign

Wonder by R.J. Palacio — The Pullman family is wonderful! They’re loving, caring, understanding and protect one another. They may have their issues, but they always end up making up in the end.

“GROWING STRONG”

|| A book you had low expectations of but that grew on you ||

House Tyrell by LiquidSoulDesign

Anna and the French Kiss series by Stephanie Perkins — I remember a few of you recommended this to me when I asked for a good romance novel/series. Honestly, I was still SO picky about romance and coming of age novels … so I went in with minimum to low expectation. Luckily I gave it a shot because the series ended up being really enjoyable.

“OURS IS THE FURY”

|| A book that made you furious ||

House Baratheon by LiquidSoulDesign

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling — I was so disappointed in this book … there are a SMALL number of things I liked but it felt so … ugh.

“UNBOWED. UNBENT. UNBROKEN”

|| A book you have unwavering devotion to ||

House Martell by LiquidSoulDesign

Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young — There are a LOT of mixed reviews and feelings about this novel, but I loved it! Honestly, I think it’s such a great novel and I can’t wait for Young’s next novel. I want to re-read it later this or next year once I catch up on a few other books. Thank you Adrienne Young!

“A LANNISTER ALWAYS PAYS HIS DEBTS”

|| A book you feel indebted to ||

House Lannister by LiquidSoulDesign

The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton — I relate to Ponyboy so much in this novel … digging the smaller beauties in life, having a hard time relating to others where I grew up, thinking with my emotions … it was great to read a book with a main character who wasn’t just this macho and put together tough person. Reading from Ponyboy’s perspective made me feel more welcomed, that there’s nothing wrong with my personality and more sensitive nature.

Part Two. Fan Theories

Well I already know the ending, so I’m going to put my answers BEFORE I saw the ending.

WHO DO YOU WANT TO WIN GAME OF THRONES?

I swear, I’m the ONE person who wanted Sansa Stark to win for the North. Funny enough, I used to hate her character. However, her character growth has been amazing and I truly think she will be an epic queen.

As much as I want Jon to win because he’s fairly righteous and has good morals, I think it would be neat to see Dany win. If there was going to be one or two more seasons, we could see her development … especially since she seems fairly power hungry as of late.

WHO DO YOU THINK WILL MAKE IT TO THE END AND WHO DO YOU THINK WILL DIE?

Again … this is based off of my thoughts BEFORE the show ended

The “will live” list: the remaining Stark’s, Tyrion and Jamie Lannister, Brienne of Tarth, Bronn, Podrick, Stannis, Daenerys, Missandei,

The “will perish” list: Cersei Lannister, Jorah, Lord Varys, the Greyjoy siblings, Davos, Grey Worm, the Hound

There’s definitely more people but it’s too long of a list … and I ended up realizing I was right for some and wrong for others …

Part Three. My Game of Thrones

WOULD YOU WIN OR DIE?

Oh come on … I would die in an instant! Maybe I would live if I wasn’t wanting to “win the throne” (because really … I wouldn’t want it) … but I would definitely die. I would need some kind of epic luck to still be living. And I bet it wouldn’t even be war!! I probably would die by some plant or food or falling off a cliff …

WHAT HOUSE ARE YOU?

I got the same as Meghan!

HOUSE MARTEL

You are charming and clever. You are also as close to progressive as Westeros gets, believing in such strange concepts as women inheriting property and children having the right to not be tortured for their parents’ mistakes. Really, you have everything going for you except for the grudge-holding and the cockiness – for the gods’ sake, take the time out of your day to stab your opponent twice, OK? I don’t care how dead he looks.

The Nominees

This has been circling a lot, so I’m not tagging anyone this time around. I’m just going to say I TAG YOU ALL!

  1. OMG, Jenna!!😍 How do you find the best tags??? I LOVE this one, I’m a big GOT fan (Daenerys My Queen 🐲), so this one is perfect.πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ’•

    I’ll save it to do it sometime. I always steal your tags, I’m sorry, love πŸ˜….

    Harry Potter is really the perfect winter reading! ❄️

    1. I don’t even know … people post them and I’m like … I need to do this ha-ha! I swear, I DO plan to make an ultimate book tag page so people can find one when in a pickle … I apparently am the Queen of Tags as people say πŸ˜…

      No sorry necessary! I always get so excited to see more and more people do these tags! They are some of my favourite posts to read ha-ha!

      RIGHT???!! SUCH a great winter read!

  2. Ahhh! I completely forgot about this tag haha! I’m glad you enjoyed doing it! πŸ˜€
    Yay! We’re in the same house!!! I feel like it’s the best house to be in because it’s not the worst, you know? πŸ™‚
    I agree with you on the Cursed Child, the worst HP (if you even want to call it that) book, I truly don’t think we (as fans) ever really needed it, but that’s my opinion.
    Love the Jeopardy gif! πŸ˜€

    1. I know … it’s been A WHILE! I literally did a BUNCH of tags in May and June that people tagged me in so I wouldn’t have to worry about those for a couple of months ha-ha!

      Yes … I totally concur. We are in PROBABLY one of the better houses IMO πŸ˜‰

      Oh gosh … I don’t even know if I can call it an HP book. I like to pretend it doesn’t exist lol!

      THANKS! I used to be OBSESSED with Jeopardy ha-ha!

      1. It’s good to stock pile them! I’m lazy or I forget and then I gotta write things up quickly haha!

        Not that there is a β€˜good’ house to be in in GOT haha, but definitely better than being a Lannister πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜‚

        Oh I pretend it doesn’t exist all the time πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

        HA! I’m still quite obsessed with jeopardy. I watch it religiously every night, although I don’t watch repeats so currently waiting for the new season! I’m such a nut πŸ˜…

  3. hehe fair enough about war and peace (it is really good if you do ever change your mind πŸ˜‰ ) HP is perfect for winter!! I also had low expectations for anna and the French kiss cos I didn’t read romance much at that point- but I really liked it too. I’ve heard such bad things about cursed child since it was released (and didn’t like the ripoff opening scene) so I’ve never read it. Really want to read sky in the deep. I hear you about sansa- I had a complete turn around about her character too. haha I’d die too! Loved reading your answers for this!

    1. Part of me WANTS to … but I unno … maybe one day? I’m happy to know that it’s good though! It makes me actually WANT to pick it up one day lol!

      Right?! Totally shocked I enjoyed that series. I’m becoming more open to romance? I’m still picky, but I find the YA or New Adult romance nicer … or adult but the comical stuff. As long as there’s some other deeper level meanings, I tend to enjoy them.

      Oh man … honestly, I advise you never read it … it’s not worth it … seriously.

      Sky in the Deep = LOVE! I heard a lot of people don’t care for the second book as much by Young … but I’m still buying and reading it lol!

      Sansa’s character growth REALLY shocked me in a good way. Really loved it. And yea … I would die in the first couple of pages lol!

      Thank you! And thank you for creating it!

  4. Great post, Jenna! I actually haven’t watched the Game of Thrones series (I’m so barbaric, I know), but this tag looks like such fun! I totally agree with your picks for Harry Potter, the Cursed Child, Sky in the Deep, and the Outsiders! ❀ Even though I'm not too familiar with Westeros, I'm 111% sure that I would die in two seconds flat. lol!

    1. Thank you, love!! I actually didn’t FULLY watch it. I skimmed through two seasons. I didn’t like some of the explicit stuff … just because it was really hard to watch. But the story was always interesting.

      Awe thank you! LMAO! I feel like a LOT of us would say we would die … I just KNOW I would not last … ah well, it’d be fun while it lasted lol!

  5. Ah what a brilliant tag! Yes, GOT disappointed me to no end in the last series BUT it will always have a place in my heart and at least we have the books to look forward to? Hopefully, Martin WON’T screw it up!
    I can’t agree more on Sky in the Deep – it’s one of my favourite books of all time and I honestly don’t get how people can dislike it? You just want to protect it at all costs like… And I’m so ready for The Girl the Sea Gave Back ❀ ❀
    I was always a Sansa fan – I felt she was so refreshing as a heroine. Everyone always adored Arya, but to me she just felt too cliche. I mean, I still liked her character, but Sansa was just much more relatable (when I was her age). Plus the novelty factor of having a "weak" girl who turned out to be a mothereffing Queen πŸ˜€
    Oh I would most certainly die as well xD I have no political strategy at all. And I always felt like a Stark (hence the pen name) but I don't know, I might do the test just to see if I'm wrong πŸ˜›
    Thanks so much for sharing your answers! πŸ™‚

    1. Oh yes! I always forget that the book series isn’t over yet!

      YAS! THANK YOU! I love that book deeply! I heard some iffy things about the second book … but I don’t care. I’m still buying it lol!

      I honestly couldn’t stand her at first, but she grew on me later. I think I didn’t like how she picked other people over her family, but again, it was neat to see a non-stereotype main heroine.

      I’m not gonna lie, I’ve always been an Arya fan. Especially later on, since she gets more sarcastic which is my kind of humour. Her and the Hound together was the best. I love Brienne though ❀

      You should totally do the tag and the test! I wanted to be a Stark but knew I probably wouldn't be lol!!!

      Thanks for reading them!

      1. Oh I loved her and the Hound as well! Brienne is the most wholesome character but I hate what they did to her in the last season… She deserved better ❀
        Hahaha oh I definitely won't be a Stark but it's okay, all houses have their good things and bad things so I'm sure it'll be all right xD
        Of course! πŸ™‚
