A little while ago, when this blog was just starting out, I listed out some of my favourite TV opening title sequences. A few years later and the opening title sequence is still an endangered species. While some TV shows are still creating fantastic openers, others are opting out, like The Knick and Fargo. I guess, maybe it’s something to do with time. Or something more complicated I don’t know about.
Who knows, I still enjoy a good opener and since I last listed my favourites, I have a few new ones. So thought it was about time for my to update the list.
Just recently finished reading A Clash of Kings and straight onto A Storm of Swords. This is my third book in 2 months. That’s way above my annual average!
I haven’t read this much in a long, long time. I could put it down to my Kindle. But then that’d be unfair on the books. Which are impossible to put down. Combination of both?
Reading this much of George R.R. Martin’s books in a short amount of time has also made me ridiculously excited about the thought of a second season of Game of Thrones. The first season was so faithful to the books I’m looking forward to seeing how they handle the second book!
The best thing about starting to read this series of books after watching the first season of Game of Thrones? I can put names to faces! There are just so many characters that watching the TV show I was a little blasé about who was who. Now I know.
Now I’m off to grab some lunch and find a comfy spot in the sun to read on. I can’t remember the last time I got this stuck into a series of books.
