So I was delighted when I was tagged so, let’s get started…

PART ONE: BOOK QUESTIONS!
We do not sow- A book you would not be willing to invest in:
I recently read Runes by Ednah Walters it was free on Amazon ebooks for a while which was great but the book was a bit of a let down so I’m glad I didn’t spend my cash on a real copy.
Fire and blood – A book that produced strong emotions in you:
I am currently reading Letters to the Men I have loved by Mirtha Michelle Castro Marmol it is a beautiful poetry and letter collection by a young female author. I haven’t quite finished them all get but that is only because I am savouring ever last one. I have cried multiple times and fought back the tears, these poems and letters are beautiful, relatable and sometimes just really heartwarming.
Winter is coming – Your favourite winter reads:
An old favourite when it comes to wintry reads has to be The Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe who wouldn’t to go to Narnia after all?
Family. Duty. Honour – A book about strong family ties:
It’s going to have to be Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen I love his book and it’s full with a great although slightly different family and all their dramas. Whether you’re a Lydia or Lizzie or somewhere in-between the girls of Pride and Prejudice are a relatable bunch! I’m currently taking part in The Jane Austen Challenge click for more info!
Growing Strong A Book you had low expectations of but grew on you:
On the Island by Tracey Garvis- Graves- I thought this book was going to be a cute beach read but it is so much more than that. It is an epic, beautiful sweeping love story with the fabulous desert island setting.
.Ours is the fury- A Book that made you furious:
I have talked about this book ALOT and the book is Tyringham Park by Rosemary McLoughlin. When I first read the book in 2013 my main problem with the book was a really unlikable main character with an ability to hurt others. I found hard to follow a main character who I didn’t like at all, but despite my initial dislike for the novel and its main character the book has stuck with me and that has to mean something right?
Unbowed, unbent, unbroken A book you have unwavering devotion to:
Summer in February by Jonathan Smith- based on the real diaries of Captain Gilbert Evans Summer in February has to be one of my favourite books of all time. The beautiful tragic love story depicts the real life love triangle between the famous artist A.J Munnings, Munnings’ wife Florence and Gilbert Evans A.J’s best friend. Told just before World War One this novel brings these people back to life, and is based on meticulous research. Summer in February has been adapted to film to check out my review click here.
A Lannister always pays his debts -A book you feel indebted to:
For me it has to be Me Before You by JoJo Moyes, sometimes books come along at just the right time and Me Before You was that book for me. I was feeling quite lost when I read the book and really related to the character Lou, reading about someone who felt the same way as me was really therapeutic somehow and the book helped me to see that all I needed was a bit of direction.
PART 2: FAN THEORIES
Who do you want to win Game of Thrones?
It’s a tough one, I’m torn between Dany and Jon. I have been team Dany from season 1 but I am starting to think she’s going to go all Mad King on us and go crazy right at the final hurdle and Jon will take the Iron Throne.
Who do you think will make it to the end and who do you think will die?
As long as Jon/Dany live I’m okay with everyone else dying.
PART 3: MY GAME OF THRONES
Would you win or die?
I like to think I’d live but to be honest you have to be pretty ruthless to live in Westoros don’t you? So yeah, I would probably die.
What house are you?
Team Stark all the away, they’ve had it rough haven’t they? Poor bunch.
Well, that’s that. I hope you enjoyed my Game of Thrones Tag! My tags are just below –
