April’s book tag is brought to you courtesy of Clockwork Bibliophile. I don’t claim to be the biggest Game of Thrones fan, but I have read the first two novels in the epic saga, and I’m slowly working my way through the TV show.
1. “We do not sow”: A book you would not be willing to invest in
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling (1st Edition/1st Print)
Only because I don’t have a spare 30k. Cries. (I legitimately couldn’t think of a book that I wouldn’t buy).
2. “Fire and blood”: A book that produced strong emotions in you
The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
Very few books make me cry, but this was one of them.
3. “Winter is coming”: Your favourite winter read
Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn
This treasure hunt across New York City over the Christmas and New Year festive period is insanely cute and heartwarming.
4. “Family. Duty. Honour”: A book about strong family ties
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
The Cullens are one of the most tight-knit families in literature; they are genuinely willing to die for one another.
5. “Growing strong”: A book you had low expectations about but that grew on you
Foe by J.M. Coetzee
I had never heard of this book prior to it appearing on my reading list for my Masters degree, but I genuinely enjoyed the unexpected fantasy element incorporated within the realism.
6. “Ours is the fury”: A book that made you furious
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
Quite simply, all of John Green’s books that I’ve read have made me furious. I just don’t get on with his writing, his characters or his endings.
7. “Unbowed. Unbent. Unbroken”: A book you have unwavering devotion to
Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman
I first read this novel when I was about eleven and everytime I re-read it I love it more.
8. “A Lannister always pays his debts”: A book you feel indebted to
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
Having met some of my best friends through the series, I will be eternally grateful to Potter.
