GAME OF THRONES! Yes, I’m actually super excited for the book I plan to read next. I promised myself that after I finished my exams this semester that I could start reading the series, and previously I had only seen the show. I’ve been burning through them as fast as I possibly can, even though they do take longer to go through than most books.
I’ve also had to pace myself. If read too much of one thing it gets into my head like when you hear an accent for long periods of time. Not limiting myself would mean I’d probably end up going around calling people ‘blood of my blood’ and ‘my sun and stars’ while going through the malls trying to pay the iron price, finishing sentences with “it is known”. Society just wouldn’t understand. Plus when Peter Dinklage and the rest of the GoT cast start showing up in my dreams I think it’s time to slow down.
Game of Thrones and Clash of Kings went by almost too quickly and now I’m up for Storm of Swords, where I have been assured, shit goes down but of course, if you think about it, when in GoT does shit not go down? And as much fun as I am having reading the books I never want the series to end. A series this consistently good is an extremely rare find.
So I’m off to finally start the third one. What am I hoping for? The Hound to show up more, some sweet Arya/Gendry moments, for as much crap to go wrong for the Lannisters as possible (excluding Tyrion), and for Theon Greyjoy to get punched repeatedly in the face.
I doubt I’ll be disappointed.
