Who’s Getting the Iron Throne…

jon and drogo

I admit I have two modes when it comes to Game of Thrones: complaining about it and endless speculating/theorizing. So it’s been a stressful month I thought I’d have a little fun with a Who’s Gonna Get the Throne list and my percentage chances for each of the big ones.

Obviously spoilers for the show and the books up to this point and a lot of speculation about both. Disclaimer these are just my opinions and thoughts on some of the theories so if I seem to be mocking one you truly believe in I don’t mean to be but like I said I just want to have some fun 🙂

Grade: A

At what point do you realize there might be a problem? That your sibling might actually be a serial killer? That maybe not all these guys where not abusive assholes trying to kill her who helpfully turned around to let her stab them in the back…

You never know.

Romantic Books for the Anti-Romantic Reader

rochester and jane

Maybe anti-romantic is a little harsh. Not romantically inclined? Like a little bit of darkness in your love story (or a lot) such as it were? With Valentine’s Day right around the corner I thought I’d offer some ideas for books that have just the right amount to appeal to the person who likes a certain kind of love story.

Addiction, Marriage & Falling Apart

Adele

Adèle

By: Leila Slimani

Grade: C+

Okay, I admit the only other book or film I’ve watched about a character with sex education was Shame and while I thought it was really good I didn’t exactly watch that for learning purposes, you know? So I can’t speak to how this book deals with sex addiction per say but I think anyone whose dealt with any kind of addiction will recognize a lot in here.

Foe

By: Iain Reid

Grade: A

So I had been interested in Iain Reid’s last book- I’m Thinking of Ending It- and I still am but this one teased aliens, or at least space weirdness of a sort so I was like yes, I am so in!

What I Learned from the Grishaverse

Shadow and Bone

I finish the whole of the Shadow and Bone series this month! I didn’t love it but I am really excited about a Netflix series to come. Holy crap. Nikolai and the Darkling are going to get cast…

And I’m going to realize how wrong my head canon was because I always age people up but that’s a story for another time. This is about what did I learnt from my journey in the Grisha-verse.

Spoilers!

Zodiac Signs Recommendations: Capricorn

zodiac sign book recommendations

I’ve been getting into star charts and astrology, tarot cards and the like the past couple of months. What you believe in or want to take from that sort of thing is personal. I enjoy it and in some ways it helps me concentrate.

So I thought I would look at the different signs, as the year goes, and do book recommendations based on the traits of the sign. Capricorn runs from December 22-Jan 19th so I’m a little late but not to bad!

Journey through the Mirror: A Winter’s Promise

A Winter’s Promise

By: Christelle Dabos

Grade: A

A Winter’s Promise is the translated version of a hugely popular French series that Europa is doing. I really had no idea what to expect from this book or whether or not I’d like the novel- especially since I had just read a translated book before it that I wasn’t that big on.

Luckily I loved A Winter’s Promise and can’t wait for them to put out the next two books in the series.

an anonymous girl

An Anonymous Girl

It probably is and you should run away.

When Jessica lies her way into a morality study the strapped for cash girl feels like she hit the jackpot when the Doctor chooses her for “further studies.” Unfortunately for Jess Doctor Lydia has her own goals for this one and may severely be in need of a therapist herself.

Soon Jess finds herself trapped in a maze not only with no way out but no clear definition of the rules.
