The only episode of Game of Thrones that I've ever watched included the Battle of the Bastards, which pretty much sums up the #WeaponsReady sentiment. #WhatAWayToLive #PiratesLife

wrenaymuhree I 💙 this book and tv series. So much. 3y
CrowCAH Haven't gotten to this episode yet, started season four tonight, so I'll get there soon enough. Definitely helpful to have your weapon ready for battle!!! 3y

So excited I got to start this audiobook at work today. In a Beauty and the Beast retelling involving hunting, I imagine Yeva knows something about #WeaponsReady. #WhatAWayToLive #PiratesLife #UppercaseBox

TheNextBook I've heard pretty good things about this book. 3y
CrowCAH I would suspect she does know about having a weapon at the reading when hunting in the woods! Great choice! 3y

While not Pirate-related, the cover of this book, which is the first in a trilogy set during the War of 1812 (from British/Canadian perspective) clearly show soldiers with their #weaponsready #pirateslife #whatawaytolive For those interested, it's a good book 👍🏻

CrowCAH Sounds like a great Napoleanic story, another fav time in history I like to read about! And the cover picture couldn't have been more perfect for today's challenge!!! 3y

The very first book l bought in English... sooo many years ago. Cost me a fortune too... but l loved the cover by Brom, the character and the interior. Basically everything.
And you know? I haven't read it yet...

TobeyTheScavengerMonk Elric is essentially Eeyore with a sword. 3y
JazzFeathers @TobeyTheScavengerMonk Lol! Might be. I've only read a couple of his short stories over the years. He's definitely quite the unique character 3y
CrowCAH Too funny; it looks like a good book, though! What a neat story to accompany the book! 😊 3y
JazzFeathers @CrowCAH l expect it to be good 😆 3y

There are so many cool fictional weapons out there. Terminus Est from The Book of the New Sun is probably my favorite, but for this post I'm featuring my runner-up.

The Possible Sword is wielded by Uther Doul of the pirate city Armada. When activated it moves through all possible realities appearing like a cloud of blades. Wherever it COULD cut, it does. #WeaponsReady

CrowCAH Wow this sounds super interesting! And I love the weapon he's holding and it's use; so cool! Adding it to the TBR! 3y

#weaponsready How about the appropriately titled Sacred Sword by Scott Mariani. This is #7 in another of my favourite series, the Ben Hope Series. I think Ben would also make the list of my favourite characters, a lot of these books have a historical backdrop to a current day mystery and often a treasure hunt as well. Do thoroughly recommend this series. Things may never again be the same for Ben by the end of this particular book, a pivotal book!

CrowCAH Ooh your write up makes this sound intriguing! And it is appropriately titled with weapons! 😊 3y
Andrew65 @CrowCAH It is a really good series. (edited) 3y

Some titles with weapons in them. 😃 I love the Song of Ice & Fire series, and I'm halfway through the Dark Tower series (and madly in love with it), but I still need to read the tagged book.

Cinfhen Nice choices 💗but I think you meant to tag @CrowCAH 3y
sprainedbrain @Cinfhen 😂😂😂 and this is why I shouldn't Litsy at work. 3y
HotMessJess My friend's brother was an actor in the show! I still have never watched/read them though :/ 3y

A bonus post for #WeaponsReady

It's important to always have a sword handy, so you can battle your enemies on a crumbling structure or broken water wheel. Seen here are Cpt Jack, Norrington, and Will fighting. With the heart of Davy Jones, in the chest, defended by a member of the Flying Dutchman's crew.

#WhatAWayToLive #PiratesLife

jenniferw88 One of my favourite scenes from the movie 💞 3y
CrowCAH @jenniferw88 mine, too!!! If you look closely at the wheel, you'll see there's a space where Jack would fit in and get 'stuck' as he's coming out of the grave. Also, even better, there's a lever which releases the wheel from its cradle and will roll away, just like the movie!!! 😁 3y
jenniferw88 @CrowCAH 😂 my other favourite scene is what I call the 'fruit kebab' scene from the same movie - dead man's chest is definitely my favourite of the movies so far 3y
CrowCAH @jenniferw88 that's another great scene! My fave The Curse of the Black Pearl; never gets old, no matter how many times I watch it!!! 3y

⚔️ #WeaponsReady; board!!! ⚔️

These inflatable swords won't do much damage, but they were the toy included in a kids meal, so they're kid friendly!

Here are some titles from my Kindle #tbr with weapons in the title and/or on the cover. The only one I've read is the Conn Iggulden. ❤️

CrowCAH Ooh that's a lot of weaponry! ⚔️ Now you just need to read the sixth book and then you can say you read them all!!! 3y
AceOnRoam Bernard Cornwell is so great. Enjoy! 3y
