Hello everyone! It’s already December 7th which means it’s day 7 of Blogmas. Today I’ll be doing the Game of Thrones book tag which I found here. Go check out their blog! Let’s start.
1. Arya – A character that’s all about revenge
Mariko from Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh. After her convoy was attacked and slaughtered Mariko vowed to find the Black Clan and get revenge for her convoy. I’ve got a spoiler-free book review here.
2. Varys – A book featuring political intrigue
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake. This book is all about scheming and plotting and book 2 One Dark Throne is even better!
3. Joffrey – A villain you just love to hate
The Darkling from The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo, I really, really hate this Grisha. I would love to punch him multiple times in the face.
4. Jon Snow – A coming of age story
Okay, so this one is a bit harder but I’ve decided to go with Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell because this book had me figure out some things about myself, for those of you wondering that is that I have social anxiety but I’m doing lots and lots better.
5. Jaime & Cersei – A ship you just can’t get behind
PEOPLE WHO SHIP ALINA AND THE DARKLING! No just no, the darkling doesn’t see anything but power in Alina and Alina is stupid to fall for that (I mean how do you even do that?) and also Katniss and Gale from the Hunger games, ew no. Katniss herself said they were like brother and sister (I mean in Game of Thrones that wouldn’t really be a crime or anything but ew).
6. Lady Olenna – A kickass older character
Gandalf the Grey and Gandalf the White, from the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings.
7. Dany – A book featuring dragons
Okay, I’m cheating a little bit here but I couldn’t think of anything else, so I’m just gonna go with A Song of Ice and Fire and the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings. I don’t really have other books with dragons (this is my hint to you to give me some dragon book recommendations 😉 ).
8. Sansa – A character you grew to love
Alec from the Mortal Instruments, I really hated him but after he got together with Magnus he got slightly better. I really like him in the Dark Artifices and I think he´s way better there than he was in the Mortal Instruments.
9. Melisandre – An favourite magic system
The magic system in Roar by Cora Carmack, I think the idea of Stormhearts and their powers are really original. I can´t wait for Rage!
10. Tyrion – A character whose weapon is their mind
I´d say Levana from the Lunar Chronicles but I´d also say the Darkling. I don´t know which one is better but both use their minds very strategically.
That´s it for today! I hope you liked it.
