Dissapionted about GoT? Here are some (bookish) alternatives

(Aside from Tolkien, because that's an obvious choice for any fantasy)

I have to admit that I don’t watch Game of Thrones, what I do is spend any amount of time on social media, which is basically the same thing

And the first thing I saw today was how utterly dissapointing that finale was, well

Title: The Star-Touched Queen

Series: The Star-Touched Queen #1

Author: Roshani Chokshi

Summary:

25203675

Fate and fortune. Power and passion. What does it take to be the queen of a kingdom when you’re only seventeen?
Maya is cursed. With a horoscope that promises a marriage of death and destruction, she has earned only the scorn and fear of her father’s kingdom. Content to follow more scholarly pursuits, her whole world is torn apart when her father, the Raja, arranges a wedding of political convenience to quell outside rebellions. Soon Maya becomes the queen of Akaran and wife of Amar. Neither roles are what she expected: As Akaran’s queen, she finds her voice and power. As Amar’s wife, she finds something else entirely: Compassion. Protection. Desire…
But Akaran has its own secrets—thousands of locked doors, gardens of glass, and a tree that bears memories instead of fruit. Soon, Maya suspects her life is in danger. Yet who, besides her husband, can she trust? With the fate of the human and Otherworldly realms hanging in the balance, Maya must unravel an ancient mystery that spans reincarnated lives to save those she loves the most…including herself.
