The Ultimate Game of Thrones Tag

the ultimate game of thrones tag

I saw this awesome tag on A Novel Glimpse and knew I had to do it because I LOVE Game of Thrones!  Thank you to The Orang-utan Librarian for creating The Ultimate Game of Thrones Tag.

Rules

  1. Mention the creator Orang-utan Librarian (me) so I 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”- A book you would not be willing to invest in

27272506

I read Vampire Academy and really hated the writing and pretty much everything about the books so even though The Glittering Court sounds really interesting, I would not buy it because of the author.


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

The Serpent King

Oh my gosh. There are several books that could fill this slot but I think the most recent was definitely The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner.


“Winter is coming”- Your favorite winter read

1885

I love rereading Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen in the winter.  I get a really cozy feeling whenever I read it.


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

The Fiery Cross (Outlander, #5)

I love the feeling of family between Jamie, Claire, Brianna, Roger and Jemmy.  In this book especially in the series.  Their family dynamic is one of my favorite parts of this book.


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

The Mountain Story

I don’t always have the greatest luck choosing titles from NetGalley so when I got this ARC back in December 2014, I had super low expectations for it.  I read it, loved it and ended up giving it 5 stars!


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

22816087

I hesitated to put this here for a few reasons, the first of which being that I haven’t even finished it yet. And the second being I don’t want people to take it’s placement the wrong way.  I LOVE this book.  It is SO good!  But there is one character in it that makes me ridiculously furious!  My most recent Goodreads status updates and texts with my friend who has already read the book amount to me wanting to either go and murder this character or hire an assassin to do it for me.  I loathe this character.  She certainly gives the book drama and interest but omg I hate her haha.


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

Outlander (Outlander, #1)

Never have I loved a book more than this beautiful one right there.  People have mixed feelings about it because of some horrible things that happen in it, but looking at it from a historical stand point… those things happen.


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

41865

In college, I was a history major and that required a lot of reading outside of class.  That pretty much meant that I wanted nothing to do with reading for fun during my free time even though I loved reading.  But senior year, second semester when my class load was much lighter, I decided to see what all the fuss was about with this book.  The movie was going to be released in a few months so I picked up the book at Walmart and devoured it.  I immediately went back to Walmart and bought the rest of the series and read all 4 books in a weekend.  So essentially I feel indebted to this series for breaking a 4 year long reading slump.


Part 2: Fan Theories

Who do you want to win Game of Thrones?

Honesly, Tyrion is my favorite but I don’t ever see people supporting him on the Throne so I would have to go with Jon or Sansa.  I am not completely caught up on 5th season so I’m not sure what is going to happen in season 6.  NO SPOILERS PLEASE!

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

This is probably impossible to say.  Everyone knows how much George R.R. Martin loves to just kill off whoever, no matter how popular they are so it’s anyone’s guess who will make it to the end.


Part 3: My Game of Thrones

Would you win or die?

I would totally win because I am so awesome! 😛

What house are you?

I love House Stark and House Targaryen but if I had to choose between the two I would go with Stark.  Also, I took this quiz like The Orang-utan Librarian did and came out with House Stark so looks like I’m set with that.


As for tagging people, I tag anyone who loves (or even just likes) Game of Thrones!  Have fun! 🙂

  1. I’m so happy you did this one! 🙂 I like your Twilight pick. I could probably have picked it since it got me started reading stuff besides adult contemporary romance. Oh, and I am so wanting to read The Serpent King. My library is taking forever to get it to me! Thanks for doing this!

  2. Ahh I’m desperate to read Serpent King- I’ve heard only good things! And I also wasn’t a fan of Vampire Academy- she’s not one of those authors I’ve completely blacklisted, but I’m also totally not interested in reading any more of her books :/ And Pride and Prejudice is fabulously heartwarming! Oh I know what you mean about reading in college- because of all the required reading I also lost touch with why I loved books and practically stopped reading for pleasure in term time- which was a shame cos I was doing a degree in literature (so you wouldn’t have thought that would put me off, but it did 😦 ) what a great way to answer that question 🙂 YES- I completely agree with you about Tyrion- I love him and think he’d make a great ruler- but he wouldn’t be very popular- that’s why I vote for him as hand- besides it’s always best to be the power behind the crown than the figurehead in the limelight.
    I’m so glad you found this and did it- thanks for tagging me so I could read it- I really enjoyed your answers 🙂
