Game of Thrones Book Tag

I saw this on The Bookish Chick‘s blog, but it was created by Biblio Nyan. As I am a long time fan of Game of Thrones, I thought that I would give it a go as the last season is coming out .

House Lannister

Here Me Roar

Name a book that you originally loved, but upon a re-read realised that it wasn’t so great after all.
Red Queen
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

When I first read this book, back when it was the only one published in the series I thought it was great. When I re-read it followed by books 2 and 3 I was left feeling disappointed and wanting my money back.

House Stark

Winter Is Coming

Name your most anticipated book release for 2019
Children of Virtue and Vengeance
Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, and am eagerly anticipating the next book which is due to come out in December.

House Targaryen

Fire And Blood

Name a book that you felt completely slayed with fantastic characters, plot, pacing, etc.
Cinder
Cinder by Marissa Meyer

I am cheating a little bit in this one, and am going to put the whole of the Lunar Chronicles as my answer, as they are so wonderfully written and are completely captivating.

House Baratheon

Ours Is The Fury

Name a book that ended with a cliffhanger ending that genuinely pissed you off.
Insurgent
Insurgent by Veronica Roth

I understand that this might not be a very popular answer, but I think it needs some context. When I read this book, I thought that it was the last in the series as Alligent wasn’t out yet and I was new to the concept of series not being finished. I had only just started being able to buy books when I wanted and choosing books without any parental input. It never occured to me that I was reading an unfinished series, so I was expecting a happy ending, and wasn’t even given an ending.

House Martell

Unbowed. Unbent. Unbroken.

Name a book, or book series, that’s been on your TBR since the dawn of time.
The Darkest Minds
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

When I first started getting involved in the online book community I saw a booktuber (I can’t remember who) raving about this and I’ve always been meaning to read it, but have never gotten round to it.

House Bolton

Our Blades Are Sharp

Name the most graphic or disturbing book that you’ve ever read.
A Game Of Thrones
A Game Of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

This probably isn’t the actually correct answer, but it is the one that sticks out the most as it was far more graphic than anything I had ever read when reading it for the first time at age 12/13.

House Tyrell

Growing Strong

Name a book, or book series, that gets better and better with every re-read.
The Book Thief
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I know I have this on pretty much every book tag, but I love it so much!
