Rereading Thrones: You Should Never Leave Winterfell

game of thrones

I started a A Song of Ice and Fire reread project because in my head for some reason I’m convinced if I take my time when I finish Dance of Dragons Martin will announce the long awaited Winds of Winter.

I know right?

Plus I just really wanted to reread the books. However rereading Thrones was a bit odd.

Thrones Theories: Predictions for the Final Season!

jon at the heart tree

One of the most fun things about the world of Westeros is the theorizing. And with the show coming to an end I thought I’d look at some of the most popular theories- where they fall in the show and what the show may say about their fates in the books.

This is all in good fun but I know people are particularly passionate about both the show and the books. So I will say my heart as always is with the book world. I still believe we will get Winds of Winter one day. So don’t burst that bubble please! πŸ™‚

Things Not Conducive to Blogging

Probably the main thing not conducive to blogging or keeping up right now is abdominal Β surgery and a stomach full of stitches. I told myself I wasn’t going to bother with posting or even scheduling posts but I had really been hoping to keep up with reading and commenting and that just didn’t happen.

The Good & the Bad of Fire & Blood

fire and blood

Fire & Blood

By: George R.R. Martin

Grade: B+

You got to love him. Only Martin could drop a 700 page history of the Targaryens (instead of the book we all want) and then only get to the halfway point of the history! And a vast amount of that is the previously published Dance of Dragons history. Er… I can’t even be angry because it’s Westeros. It’s dragons. I ate it up.

Fire & Blood is also very Martin in both good and bad ways.

I Will Always Ship It!

Valentine’s Day is coming and though I’m not the most romantic of people I can occasionally ship with the best of them πŸ™‚ So I thought I’d share the ones that have stayed with me through the years that I’ve never really stopped shipping that have always held a place in my heart.

I’m leaving out any ships along the lines of “Sookie and anyone but Bill,” from True Blood and obviously the ones I’ve let go of (Carol and Daryl from the Walking Dead), together from the beginning (Zoe/Wash from Firefly) or like Harley and Ivy where I could take them either way. Obviously I’d recommend all the assorted books, shows and films* and some spoilers below!

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 πŸ™‚

All the Best Deaths

All the Best of the Deaths

Okay, this is a bit morbid perhaps but I was thinking of it in regards to Strange the Dreamer and we’re so close to Halloween so All the Best of the Deaths. By the way this isn’t a good or bad thing some of these absolutely devastated me but they were so well done!

Also there’s some pretty famous deaths in here but just in case spoilers for: The Book Thief, Crooked Kingdom, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Mockingjay, Strange the Dreamer, & The Hate U Give.

Chapter 13: Muse of Nightmares

muse of nightmares

I’m currently reading this and enjoying it. Which is strange because Laini Taylor’s writing sometimes makes me crazy. I wasn’t sure what to call this. Parsing Laini Taylor? The Make Out Chapter? The I probably shouldn’t be annoyed/laughing here?

Anyway spoilers for Strange the Dreamer and up to chapter 13 of Muse. But mostly just confusion. πŸ™‚

My Weird (Possibly Deadly) Dinner Party List

The Dinner List

The Dinner List

By: Rebecca Serle

Grade: C

I picked up The Dinner List from Book of the Month. The story is about a girl whose birthday dinner actually becomes a living answer to that whole make a list of the 5 People You’d Most Want to Dine with. Audrey Hepburn included.

Honestly, the book was okay. Pretty meh. It’s got a love story and says some nice things about life and loss by the end. But I was just hoping for so much more. It does however give me a perfect excuse to the The Dinner Party Tag! Which I naturally couldn’t keep just literary.

What They Should Have Said

buffy from hush

A little bit of what they should have said. A little bit of what I would have said. Some specific characters. Some general… Mainly me procrastinating on my other writing πŸ™‚
