Screen Shot 2015-04-26 at 11.26.00 AM

Have you been watching the latest season of Game of Thrones on HBO? I haven’t. In fact, I’m still working my way (slowly) through book five of the series, but I definitely hear a lot of Westeros talk around school from friends who are obsessed with the series. I picked these three characters pretty randomly, but also because I’ve totally changed my opinion on Jaime since I had only read first one. Let me know who you’d marry, who you’d date, and who you’d dump in the comments. I’ll play along below as well!

Marry, Date or Dump: Daenerys, Cersei, & Sansa

Lots of my friends have been watching the new season of Game of Thrones. I’m waiting to try and get through book five of the series first (I’m stuck on a Reek Chapter and completely unmotivated to keep going), but I thought it would be fun to play marry, date, or dump with some Game of Thrones characters since it is definitely in the air. I picked Dany, Cersei, and Sansa. Let me know in the comment who you’d marry, who you’d date, and who you’d dump. Please try to keep spoilers at a minimum (especially for anything that happens to Sansa in Book 5 … she’s my favorite). Also I will probably pick three men from the series for next week, so feel free to make suggestions!  Continue reading “Marry, Date or Dump: Daenerys, Cersei, & Sansa”

Burn, Read, Rewrite: Lord of the Rings, Ender’s Game, & Game of Thrones

Happy February everyone. I picked three more beloved fantasy/science fiction series for todays game. Even as I’m typing this, I’m not sure which books I’m going to choose for which categories. For people new to the game, in the comments you say which book you would read (your favorite/perfect as is), which you’d rewrite (you like it, but there is something you want to change about it), and which you’d burn (your least favorite). Now for my turn … Continue reading “Burn, Read, Rewrite: Lord of the Rings, Ender’s Game, & Game of Thrones”

After more than three months, I finally finished the audiobook of A Feast for Crows last night, so I definitely have Game of Thrones on my mind. Only one more book until I catch up with the rest of the world! To commemorate this I thought I would offer three really important female characters from this fourth book for you to marry, date or dump.  Continue reading “Marry, Date or Dump: Cersei, Margaery, & Brienne from Game of Thrones”

Marry, Date or Dump: Women from Game of Thrones

Last week, I gave you the option to marry, date or dump the men from Game of Thrones and your response was overwhelming. The comments I got were so thoughtful, witty and completely incomprehensible (since I haven’t really read the books and only watched one episode) that I knew that I needed to jump on this bandwagon. Since I learned your opinions on men last week I wanted to see what people thought when it came from the series’ ladies. You can choose from any of the women below or let me know who you would pick from my choices in the comments.

Marry, Date or Dump: Men from Game of Thrones

game of thronesI had my first Game of Thrones experience last night. I watched last night’s episode and my nana explained the whole series to me. I’m still a little confused, but she did a great job. I’m hoping to read the series later this summer. I now know that there are literally hundred of characters to choose from. I’ve chosen three fellows that were in last night’s episode: Tyrion Lannister, Jon Snow, and Jaime Lannister (aren’t they all just so dark and broody?!?!). Let me know who you would marry, who you would date, and who you would dump in the comments. Please, as always, feel free to substitute my choices with your own. I know I’m a newbie and probably missed some important characters. Next week I’ll bring you some options from the ladies on the show.  Continue reading “Marry, Date or Dump: Men from Game of Thrones”
