In the midst of Winter, we find relief…

It is hard to believe that it has been a whole year since the seventh season of Game of Thrones began airing and at this point in time we know that the final season will be coming at some point in 2019, fans of the series – like myself and clearly you since you are reading this post – have some time to kill! Sure we are all going to re-watch the whole series at some point to pass the time but let’s go back to where it all began, books!

Yep, in case you forgot, Game of Thrones is based off a book series so I have compiled a list of books you should try to help you past the time while waiting for Game of Thrones season 8! Check out the titles below…

Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown

The Red Rising Trilogy is a science-fiction political drama that under all the action-packed plot is filled with positive role models and interesting and layered characters.

The Queen of the Tearling Trilogy by Erika Johansen

The tale of Queen Kelsea is empowering filled with rebellious kickass ladies! The series is if you only watch Game of Thrones for Daenerys Targaryen.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

This fantasy heist YA novel is told from different character’s points of view and has an enchanting world building that Game of Thrones fans can’t help but fall in love.

The White Queen by Philippa Gregory

Nothing is juicer than some historical fiction and Philippa Gregory is the queen of that genre! Read all about the War of the Roses which inspired GRRM and a Song of Ice and Fire!

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

The first book in a trilogy, Red Queen focuses on a rebellion formed from inside the castle walls, sounds a bit similar to a current wine loving King’s origin story?

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

The first book in Tomi Adeyemi Legacy of Orïsha series has critics comparing the young author to J.K. Rowling. This book follows the story of a young girl out to save her people by bringing magic back to her land after a ruthless King takes over.

This captivating page-turner will keep you up at night thanking the gods you were not selected to court Henry! Each of Henry VIII’s six wives gets to tell their tale in short stories by different authors but much like real life, Henry does not remain silent in this book – also sharing his opinion and more so justifying his actions.


Daughters of the Storm by Kim Wilkins

Five sisters, who all have VERY different personalities, must come together to protect their kingdom when their father is cursed. If you can’t trust your own sisters who can you trust…?

Game of the Gods by Jay Schiffman

Schiffman’s debut dystopian political thriller is being compared to The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Red Rising – so yea we are picking up what he is putting down!
