Badass Women Save Themselves: 5 Reasons To Watch Game Of Thrones

March 29, 2017

Badass Women Save Themselves

 

5 Reasons To Watch Game Of Thrones

This episode Jove Belle and Blythe Rippon chat about Game Of Thrones and each give thier top 5 reasons that they think you should watch it. 

Game of Thrones has won more Emmys than any prime time television shows, and with good reason: arguably the most ambitious show ever to grace the small screen, GoT is epic in narrative and aesthetic scale. Its plot twists and turns until you're spinning, and it's a good idea not to get too emotionally attached to any character (although, good luck with that). In this episode, we give five reasons to watch the show.

From the back of the book: 

Kelli MacCabe is a no nonsense detective with a tough exterior. Only a select few know her as a loyal, loving friend. Committed to her family, her friends, and her job, Kelli puts her needs behind everyone else’s.  

As a surgeon, Nora Whitmore is used to being in control. The hospital is her life and leaves room for little else. Respected by her colleagues, but misunderstood by the residents, Nora takes what she needs and keeps everyone at arm’s length. In the process, she creates unexpected enemies. 

Tragedy brings them together. As chaos grows around them, the lines between them begin to blur. Despite being from different worlds, friendship grows between them, turning quickly to attraction. Will these two strong, independent women find a way to deal with their individual baggage? Or will they be overcome by it? 

 

Tara also announces the next book club pick, Courting the Countess by Jenny Frame.

2 Paradox Valley by Gerri Hill

Published by Bella Books

What it’s about

Was it an earthquake? A meteor? Or something else entirely?

Running from a marriage proposal in Seattle, Dana Ingram returns to her parents' farm in Western Colorado for a two-week vacation in Paradox Valley. Only a couple of days into it, however, a small earthquake leaves them without power. Cars won't start, batteries don't work, and cell phones are useless.

When a Black Hawk helicopter vanishes off of radar, Captain Corey Conaway is sent in to locate it and its crew - all while keeping the disappearance out of the media. When she meets Dana and her cousin, Butch, Corey solicits their help in the search. But as they travel on horseback through the rugged and remote Paradox Valley, what they stumble upon soon has them running for their lives.

3 Night Vision by Karin Kallmaker 

Published by Bella Books

What it’s about

Julia Madison is having nightmares. Every night. All night. Painful and perplexing, the nightmares of a woman in captivity calling for help escalate until she is having them during the day, wide awake. Doctors prescribe pills. Therapists theorize about past lives and post-traumatic stress. Fortune tellers predict she will meet a tall, mysterious stranger. Julia would prefer to blame her ex, her job, even the Santa Ana winds. 

In spite of her long history as a loner, she turns to a support group for women with sleep disorders. To her amazement she learns that the other lesbians in the group—and only the lesbians—are having similar nightmares. No longer believing these vivid night visions are in their heads, the women join forces to find the source of their disturbance. 

Since Julia knows that her dreams focus on the woman she's named Sirena, finding Sirena is her number one priority. Convincing the other lesbians to help her comb the Mojave Desert is only the beginning of the adventure. 

Karin Kallmaker's story pits the power of sisterhood—and love—against the savagery of fear and hate.

Early on, she encounters Elizabeth, who preys on Vivian’s inexperience and naivety, luring her into a brief affair that ends in disaster.

Ida brings Vivian, wounded in both body and spirit, back to life. Destiny has thrown them into each other’s arms where they find not only love, but hope, trust, and forever.
