As someone who really loves Game of Thrones, I thought this tag was something worth doing! I had to actually look around at my bookshelf for some of these characters because I needed inspiration. I’m not sure who created this version of the tag but all credit goes to them! I also tag anyone whos interested in Game of Thrones and YA books!
1. ARYA STARK: A CHARACTER THAT’S ALL ABOUT REVENGE
Lada Dracul from And I Darken
2. VARYS: A BOOK FEATURING POLITICAL INTRIGUE
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake is all about politics and choosing who ends up ruling!
3. JOFFREY: A VILLAIN YOU JUST LOVE TO HATE
Umbridge from Harry Potter! This doesn’t really need any explaining does it.
4. JON SNOW: YOUR FAVORITE COMING OF AGE STORY
The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis
5. JAIME AND CERSEI: A SHIP YOU JUST CAN’T GET BEHIND
I really don’t like Katniss and Peeta together but I also really can’t get behind the shipping of Sebastian and Clary in the Mortal Instruments (even if very few people ship them).
6. LADY OLENNA: A BADASS OLDER CHARACTER
Minerva McGonagall and Magnus Bane are some bad ass characters even though they both might be well over the age of 50.
7. SANSA STARK: A CHARACTER YOU GREW TO LOVE
Mustang from the Red Rising trilogy even if I’ve only read 2 of the 3 books!
8. MELISANDRE: YOUR FAVORITE MAGIC SYSTEM
I love the magic in the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.
9. TYRION LANNISTER: A CHARACTER WHOSE WEAPON IS THEIR MIND
Offred from the Handmaids Tale is someone who really thinks things through and uses her mind to pursue certain things.
10.DAENERYS TARGARYEN: AN AMBITIOUS CHARACTER YOU LOVE
Manon Blackbeak is such an amazing character that knows exactly what she wants out of life.
11. JORAH: A CHARACTER THAT DESERVED BETTER
Beth March from Little Women was such a sweet character that didn’t deserve anything bad to happen to her.
12. THE NIGHT KING: A TERRIFYING ENEMY OR MONSTER
The Malchai, Corsai, Sunai from This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab are definitely some of the more creepy monsters in YA literature
There will be spoilers for all the previous seasons in this post so if you’re trying to keep away from any and all spoilers, I don’t recommend reading this post. This isn’t really a review but more of a collection of thoughts. This is just a little post I thought about doing but I won’t be talking about any other episodes because I don’t think it’s the best idea for this blog. I hope none of you mind the different post, I’m going back to book related posts on Thursday!
Before the show thoughts:
I absolutely love Game of Thrones and this premier has been such a long time coming! I’ve been waiting so long to see what Daenerys does with her dragons in King’s Landing because she is definitely my favorite on the show. I was also so excited to see what Sansa does now because she is such an interesting character to watch. I also love Sophie Turner as an actress so I was really excited to see her on Game of Thrones again.
After the episode thoughts:
This was such a good premiere episode omg I loved it. Everything from Sansa to Little Finger was amazing and I can’t wait for the next episode to come out! I watched the episode about 30 minutes after it started airing on HBO Go and I really loved going on Twitter after and reading everyone else’s thoughts on the episode.
I know that there’s blood, murder, and incest in the show but I think the sequence of Sam cleaning up everyone’s mess in the Citadel was by far one of the worst things I’ve seen on the show. I couldn’t take his gagging and I felt terrible for him but at least his wife and young son are able to have a roof over their heads.
I love Daenerys and every time she was on screen it was amazing. I also loved seeing her dragons but I wish they had more screen time. Then again I always want the dragons to have more screen time. “Shall we begin” was literally all she said in the last scene and I was still so in love with those three words. I’m so ready for her to kill everyone with her dragons!
Also, Ed Sheeran was in the premiere??? I was so shook when he came on cause I was not expecting that in any way. I just hope he doesn’t die a hellish death because his singing on the show is always welcome.
The next seven weeks are going to be all about Game of Thrones for me and I’m definitely okay with that because of dragons and murder.
