You know what’s funny about House of the Dragon storyline and promo is that they say, return to Westeros and meet the history of Targaryen and Hightower, like fans of the show will hardly know what you’re referring to with Hightower, they scratched the surface with that house.
I bet not even half of those who watched the show would even be able to say, ah yes I know that house.
And no, the one you’re probably thinking about is the Tyrells, who are from Highgarden.
In the books, of course, we know a lot more about them like the fact that Margery Tyrell’s mother was (is?) from Hightower.
So, yes, just a fun fact for everyone out there, I saw a promo vid for House of the Dragon and thought, huh, do they even know?
I’m currently reading Fire and Blood, and it’s interesting, to say the least, I hope to finish it before the show is out, but as most of George R. R. Martin’s books are a thousand million pages long, then that remains to be seen if I’ll finish quickly or not.
I’ll keep you posted and look for the review on it.
“Understanding is the first step to acceptance, and only with acceptance can there be recovery.”
This is going to be interesting, I’ll try to keep the movie and the book separated.

“Because I want to fix that in my memory for ever. Draco Malfoy, the amazing bouncing ferret…”
Hello, dearies! 🙂
Hope is shiny where you are or not really cold as it gets here.
This one was the natural next step because we already have a review (sort of) about The Philosopher’s Stone, The Chamber of Secrets and The Prisoner of Azkaban, so The Goblet of Fire deserves its spot, however, if this were about the movies, it would not get more than a few lines because the fourth movie didn’t live up to all the expectations it should have.
When we first read The Goblet of Fire, it was that we’re-growing-up book, yes, PoA too, but this more so because Harry found a love interest, the first crush, and we met Cedric full-on, and that was the opening to the other houses, especially because now there would be a tournament with other magic schools.
So, I didn’t do a season 1 of this one but season 2 was even greater and that’s the reason we are here today. After finishing the whole thing in a night and a morning, I have to say that is good and you should be watching.
Wow, you have dragons, that’s all you need to know. Dragons in your life is all you need to be happy or at least me, just me? Okay. You have magic, and elves, and dark magic, and mixed cultures, like two Queens in a kingdom or blind people doing incredible things, or being able to talk to animals, and a magical mirror. If none of those things is your cup of tea then I cannot help right now, that’s all I got.
As we all know, Game of Thrones the TV show has ended, our watch has ended, the night came with its terrors, winter came and went in a puff, and the fire and blood of the last episodes left us with a huge hole, so to fill it up let us go around and see what else is out there about this world that held us captive for almost a decade only to be completely finished in a not so-great finale.
Since we do not have the 6th Book to actually know what happens in A Song of Ice and Fire, then we turn to others to understand a bit more of it or to simply read something new, because there is always time for that. Here are 5 Books related to Game of Thrones.
So this is the year of endings, apparently. Shadowhunters TV, The Big Bang Theory, Endgame. I am sure others as well but those are at the top of my mind, and nothing like last Sunday’s GOT Finale, which could not be farther from what I was expecting yet it did not disappoint me in one thing: I was not expecting more than what it happened.
If you thought this would be a complete happy and tearful one, then you are in for a treat. I will not trash it, much. I think. As usual if you have not watched yet and have not read the books, or the last book published A Dance with Dragons, then stop here for the night is dark and full of spoilers.
Book 3 in The Sweetest Dark Trilogy. And book 8 in the Drakon world. Probably the numbers will change if Shana decides to write extra books about this story, this wonderful world she has created cannot be described in mundane words, it is too wonderful and so full of magic but I will do my best to convince you.
If you have read my previous post about these series (The Sweetest Dark) then you might be prepared for what it is coming now. It is all about the magic, and the drakon; it might be short but it will be sincere. Here it is.
Well ‘The Door’ was something else; I cannot believe all that happened, actually I do but the end scene was just too traumatic and dramatic for me to grasp that it was in fact, something that will happen in the books, spoilers, spoilers everywhere.
I liked the episode but from here on I am going to be back and forward between the books and what happened in the show, because this is just too much to hold in, and have to say it all while it is still fresh.
Well hello readers! Here we are again. Another book or books, another post full of my inner thoughts.
If you are a regular to Books Everywhere, then you might know Ms. Shana Abé, author of the Drákon Series and many other books.The Drákon Seriesis by far one of my favourite stories, and of course Shana is one of my absolute favourite authors, since she is one of the few who actually makes me read descriptions and pay attention to the little things in a book (although I know I’ve said that I don’t) because if you don’t know those details, then you end up completely lost and have to go back a chapter or two and find out what truly happened.
But enough of that, you are reading this because you want a new book to read or you love these two in The Sweetest Dark Series. Let us begin.
Since we are not getting A Song of Ice and Fire #6 – The Winds of Winter anytime soon, I might as well write about A Dance with Dragons, which is my favourite book so far in this saga. Especially because of Dany.
On that note, I love this one. It is quite interesting to say the least. If you are mainly a fan on the HBO Tv Series, then good for you that’s nice. However, the books? What can I say? I have a freaking main page in this blog solely dedicated to it, doesn’t that say how awesome they are? I confess I started reading the books after season one of GOT but come on, you see the series you go running face first into the books and then… nothing, you stay in limbo because Mr Martin haven’t published the 6th book.
If I’m to be honest, I did not have my hopes up for this one. There! I admit it.
That being said, I can now tell you all that I was: so freaking wrong. That book is great, I do not know how Shana did it but The Time Weaver managed to capture my attention like the other ones did not, except for The Smoke Thief, which is book 1 in the Drákon world, TTW being the last statement.
I won’t say much because this one I really do not want to say a thing, I want all to read it. I recommend it completely, of course maybe you’ll like to read the first 4 books to know what the heck is going on or at least have some idea. I’m telling you I read them all, and I had a difficult time catching up.
