I am still in shock over last week’s episode and I’m not ready to talk about it just yet. However, to commemorate the last episode of Game of Thrones, yep, that’s right, the LAST EVER episode of Game of Thrones, I am going to be doing…

The Ultimate Game of Thrones Book Tag!
I was tagged in this tag by the lovely Alex @ WhimsyPages who found this tag on The Awkward Book Blogger, realised she couldn’t answer the questions then found some other posts done by Annemieke and Drew. So that is the tag I’ll be doing today! (didn’t want to miss out on tagging anyone lmao!)
Thank you to Alex for tagging me! She has a wonderful blog so make sure to go check it out!💛
Part 1 – Book Questions
“We do not sow” – A book you would not be willing to invest in
Probably the LOTR series. I have watched the films and do enjoy them but I just can’t read the books! I think I could force myself to and watch all the joy of that series be sapped out of me but I don’t want to do that to myself so I will happily continue not having read the LOTR series!
“Family. Duty. Honour.” – A book about strong family ties
Thinking about this I can’t actually think of any books I’ve read with strong family ties. It’s quite sad that the majority of YA and fantasy books have plots based on broken families! All I can think of right now is my recent read of ‘Harry Potter & the Cursed Child’ as there are strong friendship ties as well as the family tie between Harry and his son.
“Winter is coming” – Your favourite Winter read
My first answer would be all the Harry Potter’s because the Christmas’ are always the best. But that’s too easy. I can’t think of any books in particular but I’d go with fantasy books set in winter settings (Narnia), a good romance book or fairytales!
“Ours is the fury” – A book that made you furious
This would probably have to be Twilight. When I first read Twilight I remember really enjoying it. I then revisited it and soon realised it’s not the best. It wasn’t that the book was so bad it made me furious but I was furious at my past self for thinking that I liked it so much. I’m also a bit furious at myself for wasting time re-reading it. (do you know how long breaking dawn is???)
“Fire and blood” – A book thatproduced strong emotions in you
‘All The Bright Places’ by Jenny Niven gave me some strong emotions. Mostly because of how strongly I could relate to Finch. It strung some very deep heart strings and left me in a pool of my own tears. (You’ll get this dark reference if you’ve read it😭) Definitley due a re-read.
“Hear me roar”/”A Lannister always pays his debts” – A book you feel indebted to
I agree with Alex on this that any book I read as a child. I’m indebted to all those great authors who invited me in to wonderful world of fiction and I am forever in their debt. I can’t mention books in particular (there’s too many) but some of my notable authors are Roald Dahl, Jacqueline Wilson, J.K Rowling and Cathy Cassidy (I loved the chocolate box girls growing up alright?!)

Part 2 – My Game of Thrones
Would you win or die?
I mean c’mon, die. I would like to say that I’d win and ninja around like my girls Arya and Brienne, but in reality I would most definitely die. RIP Bella.
What House are you in?
I took inspiration from Alex (copied😉) and took the same quiz and my results were…
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 not to 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.
Thank you for reading, this was so fun to do and makes me a bit emotional that it will be over all too soon! Thank you again to Alex for tagging me!💛
I tag – Ally // Sailor // Lais // Elaine // YOU!
If I have tagged you, no pressure to do it ofc! If I haven’t and you want to do then go ahead, link me in the comments if you end up doing it!
Thank you all for reading and one quick question before I go, who do you want to sit on the Iron Throne? #ForTheThrone #TyrionForTheThrone
love, bella x
