Clash of Kings etc . . .

Getting into the Game of Thrones book one was quite a mean feat in itself. Once I finished it there was a sense of achievement and relief however there was the want for me. At this point I was still travelling and had to satisfy my need for continuation with the e-book. Now as you may know from a previous post titled Kindle vs Real Books I always tend to go for the printed word.

Now that I am home and have less time on my hands I find the series of GOT quite extensive to read, that being said the TV series really has helped with my predicament. Currently running past my point of reading book two I am now at the end of Series 2 and will continue to watch rather than read. I have to admit it is a shame but I do not want to get bored with GOT and LOVE the TV series.

Giving up this series has opened up my reading schedule to tick off many other books that have been on the waiting list for the past month or so.

Next on the list . . .

Christmas @ Rosie Hopkin's Sweetshop

Received this on Friday and definitely worth the wait.

Inferno - UK cover

This has been on my night stand for quite some time and I think I need to get through it soon.

What is on your reading list?

  1. I absolutely love the TV series too! It took me almost 3 years to finish reading all 5 GoT books. My friend Mel (from Bookabye Baby) and I were lucky enough to see George RR Martin at a pop culture expo over the weekend, and he read the first 2 chapters of book 6, which was really exciting and we waited for about an hour to get our books signed! I’m not surprised that you’ve decided not to pursue reading the books because they are very ‘meaty’, as you know. It took me 8 months just to read book 5! Can’t wait for season 4 to start!!!

  2. I was trying to read the first Game of Thrones novel, but I think I need to block out my summer for them! I am in the middle of teaching Frankenstein and Water for Elephants, so the fall reading gets a little crazy for me! I do love the TV series – HBO is excellent.

    1. I managed to finish the first one but the second one – hmmm! I have seen the film for Water for Elephants and it was ok but nothing spectacular – i can only hope the book is better! As for the TV series HBO did GOOD!
