This book is amazing but I feel like it requires a ton of my focus and when you have a 1 year old running around you all day, it‘s hard to find the time to truly sit and focus in. I‘m still going to keep working on it and the rest of the series following it, but gotta knock some more books off my list along the way.

Caught up on the 6th episode and i'm glad that it is finally over. I don't think i could take any more episodes.
I have to say @Erofan you're prediction was totally correct 🙌

sudi Does anyone have any ideas as to where Drogon took Dany's body ? Is he just flying around with her dead body 😟 4d
Tanisha_A What a comedy, that episode! Sansa telling her uncle to sit down! 😂 4d
sudi @Tanisha_A i burst out laughing at that scene 😂. Sansa is queen, now literally 4d

Erofan @sudi At first it was not clear where Drogon was going, but during a small council meeting it turned out that Drogon was seen flying to the East. And, logically, Drogon flew to ruined Valyria. 4d
Erofan I read so many predictions of the end of the TV series, that accidentally chose the right! 4d
sudi @Erofan i think he took her to the Red Priestess, i wish they would've shown that scene, rather than tyrion arranging chairs 😑 4d
sudi @Erofan same, the worst part is some of the endings on reddit written by fans are so amazing and detailed. The fan written endings are more complicated and epic than the one we got 4d

Anyone catch Pawn Stars last night?

Rick bought a limited edition, illustrated, signed, and numbered hardcover copy of Game of Thrones (published in 2000, I think - anyone have one?) and 'pawntificated' on how the series is based on The War of the Roses. 🌹

BookFreakOut Did he make an offer in typical Pawnstars fashion: "Best I can offer...$20." ? 5d
BookHoarder32 @BookFreakOut Ha! He brought in Rebecca and she said it was worth $2,500+ and they settled on $1,600. 5d

I don‘t know what to say...

I do feel the need to read the books. Haven‘t started any yet.

Did it end the way it should have??

swishandflick I sure hope not. But George RR Martin is unlikely to ever finish the series so I guess we'll never know 🤦🏽‍♀️ 7d
KristenDuck @swishandflick I hope to start reading the series soon now that the show is over 7d
SilverShanica While GRRM hasn‘t finished the books, I understand that he laid out how the series was supposed to go to the end for the producers. I haven‘t seen season 8 yet, but I would assume that it went generally with GRRM‘s vision. After all, it‘s not like he has ever held to “traditional” epic fantasy conventions. Twisting everything up in the end would so be his style. 7d

KristenDuck @SilverShanica I just personally felt like season 8 was very rushed. Unnecessarily. 7d
Liatrek I‘m am numb at this point😞 I feel what a waste of so many amazing characters . The Dany we knew and loved deserved better. 7d
NamasteReading they all deserved better 😫 7d

HOTPock3tt @Liatrek SAME!! 😢 7d
CaliforniaCay I would suggest that you still read the books. They are so different from the show. I'm still working my way through the latest book, and I did prefer the adaption to the books up to this point, but I still look forward to the last 2 books. GRRM taking his sweet time finishing up is a good sign that there will be way more meat to his story than the way the writers chose to end the show. I think theres hope yet! 7d
KristenDuck @Liatrek and @Branwen I was such a fan of Dany. Didn‘t like the abrupt twist to her character or her ending. 6d

Trying to pretend like none of it happened.

swishandflick I hated it. It made me laugh out loud when Tyrion said some crap about how people love stories and "noone has a better story than Bran." And I'm like LITERALLY EVERYONE STANDING THERE HAD A BETTER STORY THAN BRAN. 7d
Traci1 @swishandflick if that is how Martin planned on ending things I hope he never finishes the books. I am all for justice and happy endings, usually. But it was just so...I don't even know. Just wrong. Bran?!? 😒 7d
hermyknee I read this article that talks about the cyclical nature and poetic justice of Bran taking the throne as he‘s the first POV in the first book (but I don‘t watch the show and never made it past the first book, so it could all be BS), but you might be interested: https://www.google.com/amp/s/io9.gizmodo.com/the-game-of-thrones-has-been-won-18... @swishandflick @Traci1 7d

swishandflick @hermyknee Nah, I disagree. He may have been the first POV but he's literally just been sitting in a chair staring off into space for the last two seasons. And if he's so all-knowing and powerful than he should have opened his mouth and helped. I'm just so unsatisfied by it all 🤦🏽‍♀️ (edited) 7d
hermyknee @swishandflick Here is a far more interesting article that I read about how the actress who plays Daenerys reacted when she read the ending: https://ew.com/tv/2019/05/19/game-thrones-finale-interview-emilia-clarke/ 7d

swishandflick @cookreadsleep LOL 😂😂😂 6d
nalinisriv They should have stopped making the show until the books were out. D&D don't have any imagination or creativity in writing. Dialogues were repeated. Nothing intelligent happened in the season 8. If you view it as abstract story each episode can be described in a single sentence. They made the story overly simplified. 5d

Tonight marks the end of an era. It is bittersweet for me because I‘m not quite ready for the end of a series I have loved and cried over for almost 10 years. It is also hard to accept the final chapter when the story is still not complete in novel form. With little hope that the last two books will ever be published, this will be a hard goodbye.

#WhenTheLeveeBreaks (Featured in Argo) "I will take what is mine with fire and blood."

There've been mixed reactions to the latest season of GoT, but I've liked pretty much every episode so far. Can't imagine the pressure the creative team must be under to wrap arcs and storylines in the reduced episode count. Uncle Stevie said it best.

rohit-sawant @vivastory Right? And agree about The Wire (I've yet to see Boardwalk Empire). I'm pretty satisfied with how it's turned out. Marc Bernardin rightly said that this is probably one of the last "water cooler shows" where audiences are on the same page, which grows rare with on-demand streaming, and the global experience it's created is a win in itself. Sure, it was bumpy at times but overall it was a great ride. 7d

rohit-sawant @Bklover I liked it. Then again, I'm easily pleased 😁 I can see how a majority of the audiences felt that a lot was wanting, but I think no matter how they ended it, pleasing everyone would've been impossible. I do wish we had more episodes to really flesh things out but considering the constraints, it was good. Chuck Wendig made some great points about why it didn't meet his expectations. You'll find it an interesting read, too @vivastory 6d
Bklover I think I‘m disappointed because it‘s over. I wish there‘d been more time too. Looking forward to seeing what GRRM does in the books (whenever they come out!). 5d

Lizpixie I‘ve been a reader of the books from when Game Of Thrones was first published in 1996, way before all this hysteria. The books are a very different entity to the series, though the tv show roughly follows the storyline, there‘s so much left out or changed, especially in the later seasons, that you can do either without being spoiled for the other. Give the books a go though, they‘re totally worth it🤴🏼👸🏼🐉 (edited) 1w

Just finished reading “A Game Of Thrones” The first Book in the series “A Song of Ice and Fire” and I loved it even though it was note for note the same as the first season so had to remind myself the book came before the series! Took me 3 weeks which I thinks good for a 780 page book just can‘t wait to crack on with the next one “A Clash Of Kings”. Would highly recommend for both those who have watched the series or not.

rretzler It‘s a great series. I‘ve been holding off watching past the 5th season because I‘d like to wait for the books, but I‘ve already been waiting a long time! 1w
Issy_King @rretzler unfortunately I don‘t think they will be released for at least another year or two, Martin recently responded to rumours saying he‘s still writing Winds of Winter and hasn‘t started the next 1w
rretzler I think a year or two is optimistic, unless the rumors that he‘s been denying for the past couple of days are actually true. He‘s been writing Winds of Winter for 8 years now. (There was 7 between books 4 & 5). He‘s 71, so I doubt that we will ever see A Dream of Spring, even if Winds does eventually come out. 😔 1w

sudi @Tanisha_A this is what happens when they try to cram 2-3 seasons worth of story in six episodes. I read somewhere that HBO was willing to give them the budget for 10 episodes but D&D said they could do it in six 2w
TrishB Agreed 👍🏻 2w
julesG Didn't read your spoilers. I've seen the first three episodes now. Might join in with my WTFs at the weekend. 2w
julesG PS: thanks fir spoiler tagging. 😘😘😘 2w
Erofan I totally agree, too 😦 2w
sudi @julesG no problem, looking forward to know what you think of the other episodes 😊 2w
julesG TBH - I think episode 3 was okay-ish and would make a good “open“ end. But, guessing from the reactions to e4 and e5, we won't get that. 2w
sudi @Erofan i was going to be content with watching S8 because GRRM is not even close to releasing Winds Of Winter, but it seems now we don't have a choice but wait for GRRM to release the book 😭 2w
sudi @julesG if i could go back in time, i'd probably stop watching after the 3rd episode and just read fanfiction or reddit theories 😐 2w
julesG Yeah, that's what I asked in another blurb comment here, should I stop now, or spoil it all by watching e4-e6. Still not decided, but I won't have time until the weekend to catch up anyway. 2w
Areader2 I do feel like the 8th season has been rushed, so all the episodes have been lacking in build up because of it. And some lack luster deaths,(I won‘t say) 2w
Areader2 Sorry hit send before I meant to, I have enjoyed it since this is the end just going with what ever happens 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2w
sudi @Areader2 i don't mind that daenerys went mad, but it just feels unbelieveable that this is the same person who chained her dragons for killing an innocent child. I wish they would've started showing her mad streak a little since season 6, but instead they rushed the entire thing and she went crazy in the span of 2 episodes. But you're right we can't change it, only one episode to go and i'm done with this show 😕 2w
sudi @Areader2 we did get the shot of Arya Stark riding that horse, which was cool. And Euron died, the happiest i've been since Joffery and Ramsay died 😂 2w
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Makes sense/was inevitable that she would go mad queen, it's been hinted at throughout the series. And she has to kill all the innocents to show us she has truly gone unhinged, and so there would be no excuse for Tyrion or Jon to back her anymore. BUT I agreed the last 2 seasons are far too rushed. 2w
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego At first I really didn't like Cersei's story, thought it was out of character. She should of had better battle plans, but clearly Dany is more villainous than Cersei as she could not of even foreseen what Dany would end up doing. And in life not everyone gets the death they necessarily deserve. At the end of the day Dany was meant to be the baddie, I'm sure that's from GRRM. He really needs to finish the books tho, his ending will be stronger. 2w
sudi @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego same, i just wished they would've set it up from the earlier seasons. In the books, she was showing some signs but in the show they always portrayed her as the hero. A person who is the complete opposite of Aerys, and now if she's not wearing any makeup and has dark circles, we are supposed to assume she has officially gone nuts. I just wish they hinted at this in season 6 or 7 since D&D knew the outcome for 3 years 2w
sudi @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego i honestly thought she wouldn't burn KL once she heard the bells, Cersei maybe but not all the people. Jon Snow is for sure regretting his relationship choices 😂 2w
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @sudi It's been hinted at since season one tbh, but subtly for sure. (D&D knew from day 1 how GRRM planned to end the books.) Her initial reaction has always been to burn cities to the ground, but she had people around her she trusted to advise her. Now she has no one left she trusts. Also from centuries of incest the fam had mental health issues, she has been pushed too far and snapped. It's too rushed yes, but not out of left field imo. 2w
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I also think the show went to the extreme to emphasize the fact that Dany is now the villian. 2w
sudi @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego i'm praying that Winds Of Winter comes out soon. At times like these i wish i had a TARDIS 2w
sudi @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego i never expected her to blow up KL, maybe i'm just bad at reading the clues. I thought she would blow up the Red Keep for sure to kill Cersei but not KL. But now that she has burned KL i'm kinda worried for Sansa in ep6 2w
Erofan @sudi I think not need to worry for Sansa! Dany won't sit on the iron throne (and Jon won't), at least not for long. I hope she doesn't have time to do anything to Tyrion! Who do you think will be king? 2w
sudi @Erofan if the iron throne remains i think it might be Sansa or Tyrion. But if they decide to do away with the throne, i think they might go with a committee instead with Bran as the leader/adviser along with Davos and Samwell 2w
sudi @erofan who is your favored candidate for king ? 2w
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @sudi I think they did that make sure the audience understands, without a doubt, that Dany is now the villian. (Again with more time it would have played better.) I agree Sansa is next on Dany's to do list, but I think Jon will kill Dany before she can get to her. 🤞🏻 2w
Erofan @sudi I think, it's a great idea to abolish the throne, perhaps make a republic with the senate at the head, consisting of Tyrion, Davos and Sam! But if the throne will remain, the king will be Bran! I think Sansa will stay in the North and Jon will go to the Wall after killing Dany! This is only my crazy speculations 😬 2w
MoonWitch94 @erofan i totally agree with you. I bet some version of this will be how things end. 2w
Pricel101 @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Erofan @sudi the theory that Arya & Gendry‘s child will inherit the Iron Throne and Tyrion will rule until the child comes of age is feasible. What do you think!? After investing hours into the books and shows GRRM needs to step up and write the ending as it was meant to be! (edited) 2w
Erofan @MoonWitch94 On Sunday we all will know the ending! 😉 2w
Erofan @Pricel101 Great theory! 👍 If we assume this, who will be the child - a boy or a girl? 2w
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Pricel101 Intersting. I haven't heard that theory yet. At this point anything is possible! 2w
BookwormAHN I will drink and finally know things 🥂 2w
Pricel101 @Erofan the theory is a girl! 👧🏼 👑 @BookwormAHN I‘ll drink to that!! 🍷😂 2w
sudi @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego i hope he does, otherwise it doesn't seem good for Sansa 2w
sudi @Erofan that seems about right 2w
sudi @BookwormAHN true 😂 1w

I think most of us feel like this! 😠😂 Am I right? @kylienoele

FantasyChick I am absolutely shocked at how it is turning out. And by shocked....I mean pissed 🤬 2w
Branwen Omg! *DIES LAUGHING* THIS IS SO TRUE TO MY FEELINGS RIGHT NOW! 😋 2w

Liatrek This is accurate! 2w
JacqMac Truth! 2w
kgriffith Ahhhhahahaha 🤣 2w
kgriffith @FantasyChick agreed. I am not here for this. A friend‘s husband had my same exact thoughts on the last episode, and quipped that it‘s turning into How I Met Your Mother of Dragons. 2w
Lizpixie Yes! It‘s bullshit what they‘ve done with this series. I don‘t just blame the producers, I blame George too for not finishing the damn books yet!🤯 2w
TrishB Agreed 2w
BookishTrish 😂😂😭 2w
julesG Should I better not watch episodes 4 and 5??? 2w
GypsyKat @Lizpixie You should blame George, he‘s been heavily involved with the writing of the show. 2w
GypsyKat @kgriffith omg, that so true! 2w
GypsyKat @julesG Eh, I would still watch them to see how it‘s going to end. 2w
Bookishlie Maybe George will change the last book based on reviews of the show? I don‘t know haven‘t watched or read GOT 2w
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I like it. Dany was always meant to be the villian, and I'm sure that was GRRMs plans all along. The real problem is that the show has rushed the plot, and should have done a better job of showing her descent into madness. We deserved more episodes. "If you think this has a happy ending, you haven't been paying attention." 2w
GypsyKat @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I‘m happy about it, but there were definitely signs that this was coming. But I wholeheartedly agree with you that it‘s been terribly rushed. 2w
Jess_Franzino I saw it coming. There was more than enough foreshadowing and the characters are really going full circle, which is awesome. However, would have liked to see it spread out over 10 episodes as opposed to crammed into 6. 2w

I figured, with the last episode fast approaching, it was a great time for a reread, and a good time to start annotating books. Who else annotates books, and has any tips to share?

BookwormAHN I do 🙋🏼‍♀️ and I love using book darts. 2w
lorannen I didn't make it through book 2 back when I first attempted reading these. Would be interested to know what your annotations might be like. There's just so much going on & so much detail! 2w
