These women aren‘t the only heroes in the #asongoficeandfire book series. I will be reading about more heroes and villains in the books. I‘m excited to read about everyone‘s adventures in the series. I‘m in the middle of reading the third book #astormofswords and it‘s getting good.

"For everything that's lovely is
but a brief, dreamy kind delight"
Whatever your views are on the last few episodes of GOT, it was an incredible show. GOT books and tv show have been the best fantasy world I have read and seen. The show was beautiful, the books even more so(still 2 more to go). GOT has been the best escape for the past 10 years. I am a fan and always will be!!! #thankyou #GOTForever

InBooksILive I'm so sad it's over! It was my favorite show. I was a bit disappointed with the last couple episodes but I understand it. 3mo
shammi.dc10 @InBooksILive You get disappointing episodes in every big TV show, also if you have read the books, book 4 - A Feast for Crows was also very disappointing. 3mo
InBooksILive @shammi.dc10 I definitely agree! I've had disappointed moments with all of the TV shows I love. And I'm in the middle of reading the books. I'm about to start book 4 actually. 3mo
shammi.dc10 @InBooksILive Happy reading, book 4 is my least favorite of all the five books. Would love to hear your thoughts!! 3mo

I watched Avengers Endgame today and then saw Game of thrones episodes 3. Both had epic battle but for me GOT battle of Winterfell was the best thing I have ever seen. The battle was just too good. Everyone shines in this episode but whoever gave the music score for this episode was just awesome, was completely and utterly blown away today. To all the writers, actors, directors, to all the ones we lost in the battle, TAKE A BOW!!!

Just a plea....we can‘t all watch when it airs in the US as it‘s 2am UK and I have work and it‘s different times all over the globe.
Please mark posts as spoilers. Thank you 😘

Birdsong28 I recorded it when it aired this morning (at 2am) and watched it before work, so it wouldn't be ruined but even though I have series linked it at that time each week I might not be able to watch it straight away every week. So your post is well received as I was worried that some people might not be so kind. Hope you enjoy it when you do get to it. 😘📚📖 4mo

TrishB @Birdsong28 I would rather watch at the same time, but can‘t always. I‘m waiting for hubby to come in now. Someone just posted a big spoiler and I swore very loudly! I don‘t want to be a party pooper but even when I watch I‘ll make sure to put spoiler if I post anything. I‘m guessing I probably should stay up late for the last one! 4mo
MicheleinPhilly I have a friend who consistently posts about every single tv show and movie the second it airs/releases. Doesn‘t matter how many people call him a selfish nob on FB, he continues to do it. 4mo
TrishB @MicheleinPhilly that sucks 😔 why!!?? 4mo
MicheleinPhilly I assume he wants to discuss it with people. But there are forums for that sort of thing! Seek them out! 4mo
TrishB @MicheleinPhilly true! My daughter stayed up and watched as she‘s on Easter break. But she hasn‘t said a word and has been chatting with others on forums all day. 4mo

Out of the many happy reunions, this was my favorite, second one was Samwell meeting John. We really needed an episode like this when the fates of most of the characters are unknown. Also they are back at Winterfell where it all started.

DAY 16: Unless you‘ve been living #underarock, you know the final season of GoT *finally* begins in April!! I haven‘t read this series, but my husband has, and he‘s the reason we started watching. 🖤

🗡 Who will end up on the Iron Throne? Any theories?

#nofemmeber

slategreyskies I‘ve been living under a rock! I‘ve never read the books, and I haven‘t seen any of the TV show either. Am I missing out? 9mo
britt_brooke @slategreyskies I‘m not usually one for high fantasy, but after watching the very first episode, I was hooked. It‘s really fantastic. 9mo
slategreyskies I‘ll add it to my (very long) list of TV shows to try someday then! I don‘t watch much TV, but I know my husband has watched some of GoT and has really enjoyed it. Maybe if he‘s not too far along, I can catch up & watch it with him. :) 9mo
See All 24 Comments
britt_brooke @slategreyskies 👍🏻 We don‘t watch much TV either these days. It‘s hard with small kids. So many things are not appropriate for them and by the time they go to bed, I‘m too tired to watch anything. 😆 (edited) 9mo
saresmoore Rock dweller, here! I read half of the first book and loathed it so intensely that I won‘t even try the show. Ha! 9mo
britt_brooke @saresmoore 😆 I know I‘d hate the books, too. My husband liked them but says the show is better because it reins in the wandering story lines. 9mo
saresmoore Well, that‘s good because 🙄. I believe that the show is incredible, though. He does some excellent world-building in spite of the brutally meandering character tropes. And I think unlikeable characters are often much more fun to watch than to read about, even when they‘re being tortured for PAGES. 9mo
KatieDid927 I love the books so much I can‘t watch the show. The characters aren‘t even the same people. 9mo
CrowCAH I AM SUPER EXCITED!!! 😍 I‘m rooting for Jon Snow ❄️ 9mo
britt_brooke @KatieDid927 That‘s so frustrating! Since I didn‘t read the books, I don‘t have that comparison .... but that‘s why I usually skip adaptations of books I love, too. 9mo
britt_brooke @CrowCAH I‘d be completely happy with him, too! I‘m worried that somebody I hate will prevail though. 9mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I know! And the books are so far behind now, but if I had to guess...well....I‘m rooting for a royal couple on the throne, a new dragon rider, and with maybe a royal heir on the way. 😉 9mo
LaLecture I‘ve tried reading the first book twice but it‘s so frustrating to know all the people I like will die and many of the ones I hate will live far too long 😅😂. Also I know most of the plot because my little brother summarised the show for me 🙄. Though I bet the books give much more detailed information on everything. I won‘t watch the show, I think. Too much violence for me. I still have theories though, I‘ll put them behind spoilers. 9mo
LaLecture I actually don‘t think Jon will end up on the Iron Throne. I don‘t think he has any “rightful claims”, even after what we learned in the last season. The family lost their claims long ago, that‘s how a monarchy works :D. You kill the old king and install your family as the new royal family. And I don‘t think Jon is the type to fight for a throne. I don‘t think he wants to be a leader. He has bad experiences 😂. (edited) 9mo
LaLecture I think Dany might make it. However that might be a bit too easy as that is what she is fighting for the whole time. She might just die, that would at least be unexpected :D. I just hope they won‘t make a weird Dany&Jon love story out of it where they happily reign together. Far too cheesy (and problematic..). I would like Tyrion, he would be a fun king xD. Anyone, just finally kill of Cersei! If I knew she died I might start watching the show ^^. (edited) 9mo
shutterbug_mama Greatest show ever! At first I thought there‘s no way I‘d like it, with all the violence, but man, it is so good! I‘ve only read 2 of the books and I do plan to read them all. I read the first book twice already. 9mo
Velvetfur I live for GoT and am avidly avoiding anything even resembling a spoiler, which I didn't do with the other series! 9mo
Billypar Yep, I'm stuck under a rock for this one 🙋 I saw most of the first season- have always been vaguely intending to watch more. Wouldn't have the patience for the books though! 9mo
britt_brooke @LaLecture Everything you said makes sense! I really hope they don‘t do the cheesy thing with Dany and Jon. I think one - or both - of them will die by the end. I love Tyrion the most. I have no idea what will happen, but I‘m excited to find out! (edited) 9mo
britt_brooke @Billypar I definitely don‘t have the patience for the books, but the show is fantastic. 9mo
britt_brooke @shutterbug_mama I didn‘t think I‘d like it because it has dragons. 😆 I thought that was so dumb, but it turns out it‘s super well done, and hooked me immediately. I love it! (edited) 9mo
KimM I think it will be Tyrian and either Jon or Dany, or both, will die 😭 9mo
KimM I‘m also convinced Sansa is a goner and it will come down to Tyrian, Arya, Dany and Jon. 9mo
britt_brooke @KimM I‘d love to see Tyrion on the throne. I‘ll be most sad if he dies. 9mo

Andrew65 @Traci1 And we weren‘t waiting impatiently for those next books! 😂 1y
Traci1 @Melissa_J I am not optimistic that he'll finish. Even if we get WoW, he'd still have another book to write. The odds aren't in our favor, I'm afraid. 1y
Traci1 @Andrew65 😆 that too. I hate the lack of closure. I don't care how HBO ends the show. I need an ending to the books. 1y
Melissa_J I‘m hoping he‘s finishing the series before WoW Will publishes and that the publisher will release the final installments close together. Probably wishful thinking though. I don‘t watch the show so I need the final books! 1y
Traci1 @Melissa_J it's possible he'd write them simultaneously. Probably not too likely though. And I do watch the show, but it's just not the same. I'd much rather the books get a finale than the show. I will be so disappointed if he doesn't finish. 1y
sudi @Traci1 and @Melissa_J i watched the show but the latest season was a complete letdown, i think the directors don't know what direction to go in without the book, i'ven given up on him releasing WoW, and there's still a dream of spring to come, which will take another deacade to comw out. I'll be an old lady till the time all books are released 😂 1y

I'm really late to the Game of Thrones thing. I've never watched the series and not quite sure why I've now decided to try the books. And also confused... the book series is called A Song of Ice and Fire and book 1 is GoT?? I always thought it was the other way around...!
But hello I am here and ready to jump in!

And I welcome all comments on how much you love this series (or maybe you don't? I'd love to know why!)

DGRachel I‘ve read the first four books and mostly enjoyed them, but I‘m in no rush to read the fifth because GRRM seems to be in no rush to write the rest of the series. I get the feeling he‘s made his money off the series and couldn‘t care less about the readers or fans and that rubs me the wrong way. I‘d rather promote authors who are grateful for and respectful to readers. Also, I really didn‘t like the 4th book. I found it tedious. 1y
LoveToReadLiveToRead I have read books 1 & 2 and found them a bit of a slog. However, I read them AFTER having watched the tv series so no doubt that will have affected my experience. I have a friend who read he books first and loved them x 1y
kgriffith I listened to the first book on audio but the narration was awful, IMO — pacing was poor like he hadn‘t pre-read any of it, and he changed how he pronounced names from one usage to another. I can‘t commit to series of that length on paper unless I really love them, so I quit the books and watched the show instead. 😊 1y
See All 10 Comments
LitLogophile I‘ve read all of the books that have been released. I loved the complexity of the story but the whole failure to finish the series thing really irks me. Also I felt they were just gratuitously violent at times. The later seasons of the show move at a much faster pace than the books and maybe the books are just unfinishable — the story has gotten too big? Idk. I would die to read Winds of Winter but I don‘t believe I ever will. 1y
staci.reads I have read 1-4. I have never watched any of the series. I loved 1-3! It''s not my typical genre, but a friend talked ke into it. #4 was much slower. 5 has been in my tbr pile next to my bed for about 5 years. I'm not sure why I haven't read it because I've been told it's better than 4. 1y
xicanti I enjoyed all the books, but the only one I loved is A STORM OF SWORDS. It's the one with all the distressing weddings! The thing that super-duper frustrates me about the series is the long wait between each character's POV chapters. I couldn't connect with anyone in A GAME OF THRONES because I'd meet them, think they were cool, and wait 100-150 pages to spend more time with them. I found the TV show easier to click with in that regard. 1y
RealLifeReading @DGRachel thanks for your thoughts! I haven't really read much about GRRM so have no opinion about him at the moment but I get what you mean. It's kinda like Patrick Rothfuss and the way he's still not yet finished his Kingkiller Chronicle... 1y
RealLifeReading @LoveToReadLiveToRead nice username! I think I can understand - the book takes ages to move from one character to another...! 1y
RealLifeReading @kgriffith ugh the audiobook sounds horrible! 1y
RealLifeReading @LitLogophile after I read the comments here I went to google the publication dates and it's quite amazing how long he takes to write the books! I really do wonder if the series will ever have an end 1y

Does anyone else here organize their Funko PoPS by literary topic? I love how they liven up my bookshelves! PS Anyone other than me still holding out for the next ASOIAF book? Patience isn‘t a trait I have enough of.

DeborahSmall When I worked in the post office 20 years ago I always bought stamp collections that were arty. But they were about Qa.99. The price of the stamp and an extra 50p!! Bit more expensive now but I think I‘ll still get the basic pack ❤️ 2y
TrishB @DeborahSmall not sure what these cost but I‘m guessing not cheap! 2y
