See is a series set in a post-apocalyptic dystopia in the distant future where humankind lost its sense of sight. Jason Momoa plays the role of a leader of his tribe and father of twins born with the ability to see. He must protect his tribe and family against a threatened queen who commands her army to slaughter those rumoured that has the ability to see as well as those who helped them seek refuge.
This show made me admire blind people more and realised how fortunate I truly am to have sight. It is mind blowing to me how they can also fight and go to war without the ability to see.
Where To Watch: AppleTV | contains violence, sex and nudity
House of The Dragon
I got so excited when they released the teaser and expected that this series would erase the disappointment from GOT's season ender. I am Team Targaryen (and Team Stark) which is why it's natural for me to obsessed on this show. The series is set about 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones and 172 years before the birth of Daenerys Targaryen. It is based on George R. R. Martin's novel, Fire & Blood.
Where To Watch: HBO Max | contains violence, sex, nudity and adult language
The Lord of The Rings: The Rings of Power
The series is set in the Second Age of Middle-earth, thousands of years before Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The story is leading up to the creation of Sauron's ring and the first episode was narrated by a young Galadriel played by .
Where To Watch: Amazon Prime Video | contains violence
Blood of Troy by Claire Andrews
I've been waiting for this book for what seems like forever and so when the release day came, what did I do? I bought the Kindle version (because our local bookstore doesn't have the hard cover yet) and the next day, I bought the Audible version! I like how Claire paints the Trojan War in Daphne's perspective. I admit, I did not expect the twist in this story. It's brilliant how Claire merges the Trojan War, Illiad and Daphne x Apollo's story in a book series. The fight and war scenes were written superbly. The bangxiety I got from Daphne x Apollo is 🥵! One of the many reasons I got obsessed with this series is that if one has an idea what the Greek myths are or a Greek Pantheon nerd like me, you'll know what a tragedy this story is but Claire writes with hope and a promise of a happily ever after. It is the angst that have me hooked.
Where To Get: FullyBooked, Amazon
Fire & Blood: 300 Years Before A Game of Thrones (The Targaryen Dynasty: The House of the Dragon) by George R. R. Martin
If one is watching The House of the Dragon series or (have watched GOT), one might have already read this book. If you haven't, this book is a dive to the history of the House of Dragons where the full tapestry of Targaryen is revealed. Like Geroge R. R. Martin's other books, this may test your patience and, like the others, may take you a while to absorb and finish.
Where To Get: FullyBooked, Amazon, Kindle
Since I mentioned The Rings of Power as one of the recommended shows to watch this month, here are some books to nerd out to go with your binge watching.
