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.
Oooh! I’ve been thinking about reading this series because my frined Kristine has been raving about the books and the TV series. Now I have some time, may hit up the library and check them out!
Definitely do! I didn’t realise how big the series was when I first started. It might have put me off – but now I’m sucked in, I’m just getting stuck in.
I would say that they’re not the best written books in the world. But they make for compelling reads, so surely that counts!
You have done good! It’s one of my favourite series and yes, I was one of those lame-o’s that downloaded the new one as soon as it was available. People complain about the long drawn out time between books, but I dun cuurrrrr, I love me some ASOIAF.
And yes, the tv series is very well done!
I can’t believe how sucked into them I’ve gotten. I haven’t been so involved in a book series in forever! I never got into Harry Potter… *shrug*
