#theworldneedsavillain @DaveGreen7777
This is my last entry for Dave's giveaway, I swear! I must really want the prize! 😁🤞ANYWAY. Cersei Lannister. Queen of the f*%@ing realm. She does awful, despicable things but...I love her anyway! There's just something about her that I can't help cheering for! And while, ultimately, Daenarys Targaryen is my favorite GoT character, I can't help secretly raising a glass of wine to salute my evil queen! 🦁💕

DaveGreen7777 Excellent choice, Becky! Cersei may be ruthless and devious, but she‘s just so good at playing the Game of Thrones, it‘s hard not to love her anyway! 😁 Her son, however, is much easier to hate! 😒 2d
Branwen @DaveGreen7777 Omg, RIGHT?! Joffrey is the absolute worst! 😫 2d

Why do people like this again? I‘m pretty sure it‘s the writing. Because, as much as couldn‘t finish this, the writing is good. Really good.

BUT. The content. I was good for the first five chapters, watching characters run around Winterfell and make decisions (I love Bran a lot. Just saying). But after that? It started to get creepy. More in comments

wideeyedreader The main thing that turned me off is Dany. I am MAJORLY grossed out by a 13 year old being expected to act as a married woman. And no, that wasn‘t common in history, no matter what they want you to believe. The next thing? The way the Dothraki are treated. The only dark-skinned characters in the book, and they are described, literally, as “animalistic”. Yeah, no. I‘m not about that. 2d

Keeping track of all the characters in a complex world like GoT is so much easier with Kindle's x-ray feature. I'm feeling less overwhelmed now lol

My kindle edition comes with maps of North and South, plus a link to more maps! That's intense lol Not sure if the link is public fair game but I thought I'd post it in case anyone wants to try it out. Of course, GoT nerds probably already know this lol I'm late to the game of maps 🤓

My evening plans got cancelled because of a raging thunderstorm. Seems like the perfect time to start a behemouth of a book... ever hear of this one, A Game of Thrones? 😉

Here we go!

AlaMich Rings a bell...🤔 Seriously though, you‘re in for a treat! Apple Books has these amazing enhanced versions for the iPad, with maps and family trees and all sorts of other goodies. I don‘t have an iPad, is the problem. 😕 5d
ShyBookOwl @AlaMich cool! I'm reading on kindle and it gave me this link to a page where you can download all maps. Maybe it's public, not sure, but you can check it out. http://www.randomhousebooks.com/campaign/a-game-of-thrones-maps/ 5d

George R. R. Martin isn't afraid of killing of a few (or more than a few) of his characters.. #cemetery

This is my collection: i've got vol.1 to 4 in italian, in the first translation each book was divided in 2 or 3; there's also vol 1,2 and 5 in english (I couldn't wait for A Dance with Dragons to be translated so I bought it as soon as it came out!!).
The mug is from Primark 🐉

#LetsTravelJuly @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

La_Cori Fun fact: in the first italian translation, at the beginning of book 1 the direwolf is killed by an unicorn!? The translator decided that a stag antler wasn't "fantasy" enough.. ?‍♀️ 6d

A Game of Thrones has a really intricate and complex plot, but that‘s not exactly uncommon for fantasy. The unique circumstances for this book, though, is that you‘d pretty much have to be dead not to have at least some idea of what it‘s all about, given the popularity of the TV show. I liked picking up on some of the interesting details that I missed in the show, it was just enough to hold it all together for me.

The Cursed Child was a disappointment, period.

The Song of Achilles made me ugly cry and I must protect my sons.

Strange the Dreamer was different, and I‘ve yet to read the sequel, but it‘s on my TBR.

Game of Thrones was a great show up until the last season, and the books are very long and veeeery detailed. I may not read further than the second one...

I just finished reading this one this morning. I haven't watched the show, so I really didn't know what to expect. It's taken me awhile to read it, but I really liked it. I don't always like books that have so many different characters and so many different things going on at once, but I felt like this was so well written that I could easily follow along. #ReadingThroughTheYears192021 #1996

Christine @Jilly6183 Haha!! I started as a show fan and have only read the first book so far. And (maybe because I haven‘t read the books?) I was one of those weirdos that mostly liked the final season and didn‘t mind the last episode! 😛 Hopefully no one rips it off of me and throws it Tyrion-style in protest when I wear it out! 😆 4w

Book 47 of the year, finished June 21, eyeball

Entirely too many characters to keep up with, which becomes much easier to keep track of as they're all killed off in new and creative ways throughout the story. Lots of politics, court intrigue, and dragons.
The characters though. So many people to remember. And to increase confusion they each have multiple names/titles. The plot jumps around like a flea on caffeine, but I'm heading to the next one.

I know I‘m a little late to the whole GoT phenomenon but usually I like to wait until things die down a little to start a popular series and this was worth the wait! So much intrigue and bloodshed and twists and turns! I really got sucked into the world of Westeros.

DGRachel I honestly don't think he will finish the series. I'm not even sure he knows where he wants the plot to go/how to wrap it up. He's having fun doing other things and doesn't appear to need the money. Good for him, I guess, but certainly disappointing for the legions of ASOIAF fans who want the final books. 1mo

I‘m going with the band name, Imagine Dragons, for today‘s prompt. For me, this is the best known book with dragons. I wasn‘t thrilled with the Game of Thrones series finale but I‘m still thinking about it a week later. So that‘s worth something. #Believer #AMonthofSongs

MallenNC @OriginalCyn620 It‘s really complicated but yes there are dragons! And they‘re important to the story. The story is inspired by England‘s War of the Roses but with dragons and sort of zombies. 2mo
