The Winds of Winter
The Winds of Winter | George R. R. Martin
58 posts | 14 read | 98 to read
Continuing the most imaginative and ambitious epic fantasy since The Lord of the Rings Winter has come at last and no man can say whether it will ever go again. The Wall is broken, the cold dead legions are coming south, and the people of the Seven Kingdoms turn to their queen to protect them. But Daenerys Targaryen is learning what Robert Baratheon learned before her; that it is one thing to win a throne and quite another to sit on one. Before she can hope to defeat the Others, Dany knows she must unite the broken realm behind her. Wolf and lion must hunt together, maester and greenseer work as one, all the blood feuds must be put aside, the bitter rivals and sowrn enemies join hands. The Winds of Winter tells the story of Dany's fight to save her new-won kingdom, of two desperate journeys beyond the known world in to the very hearts of ice and fire, and of the final clomactic battle at Winterfell, with life itself in the balance.

So happy with how my "Winter is Coming" shawl turned out! I can't wait to give it to my friend and see what she thinks. #knittersoflitsy

valeriegeary 👏👏👏 5mo
Come-read-with-me @WhatWouldJaneDo This is lovely! The colours are beautiful - they remind me of a bright winter day! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 5mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @Come-read-with-me thank you! I love how the colors turned out as well; I am terrible at guessing how my variegated yarns will look when I work with them so it's always an exciting surprise! 5mo

Come-read-with-me @WhatWouldJaneDo It is a challenge, but this is sumptuous! It makes me want to move back to a climate where I can wear something like it. You did a gorgeous job. 5mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @Come-read-with-me it's fairly light so it will work for our Texas winters. I visited family in Maine a few weeks ago and my aunt and I were discussing the differences in our knitting - down here my knitter friends and I mostly make decorative pieces and she's always going for warm wool utility. 5mo
Come-read-with-me @WhatWouldJaneDo Good point. I grew up in Western Canada, so warmth was what I aimed for. Now I live in Southern California and can‘t get off the warmth idea!! Time for a 🧶 reset! 5mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @Come-read-with-me yep there are a ton of cool fibers and patterns to keep up with the hobby in any climate! This is the Wild at Heart pattern by Megan Macko, it's free on Ravelry. I also did the stripe version for myself so I'll post a pic of that one once it's done blocking. 5mo

I'm a little bit sceptical, but I feel like this is fairly promising. As far as I know this is the first time a month & year have been named by Martin for Winds of Winter. At least in recent memory.

KathyWheeler We will see. Like you, this is the first time I remember an actual month and year. (edited) 6mo

Thank you to the MVPs of the realm for lighting the way. Seriously could not see what was going on the battlefield without you.

sudi Oh my god, this is so true. I tried increasing the brightness and contrast but nothing, guess they really spent all their budget on dragons. Cause we got no elephants and bad cinematography 😑 10mo
AnansiGirl @sudi I had that one tiny candle in this pic lit up and even that interfered with the visibility. Apparently reading up on the comments through social media land Monday morning, watching the episode in complete darkness was the solution. 😐 Ah the cgi budget, talk about dragons eat whatever they want. no elephants 🐘 and a 5 second sighting of Ghost 🐺. 10mo
sudi @AnansiGirl i was squinting my eyes at the tv screen throughout the episode 😕. I didn't even see ghost, i was scrolling through social media and then found out ghost survived 10mo
AnansiGirl @sudi he was by Jorah Mormont‘s side and ran out with the Dothraki. Really, really hope social media is being truthful and the goodest boy of Westeros did survive. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 10mo
sudi @AnansiGirl i just checked the preview for episode 4 and he survived . But it seems like Cersei's idea to just sit back and watch worked. Most of the Unsullied and Dothraki are dead, Winterfell suffered a lot of damage and Cersei also had the dragon killkng machine. Chances for Daenerys to take the Iron Throne seem dim. 10mo

Kalalalatja @sudi @Literary_Siren @TrishB @Reviewsbylola @Melissa_J to be fair, I get if the man is feeling the pressure. The TV series has become cannon now, so everything he writes will be compared to it, and not the other way around as normal. 🤷‍♀️ @emilyhaldi the man definitely knows how to procrastinate! 10mo

emilyhaldi Very fair point!!! That has to be stressful😅 10mo
TorieStorieS 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 10mo
bookandcat He said recently that writing for it is going very well right now. I think he had writer's block for a bit (probably due to show pressure which is now alleviated as it ends) and also had a lot of backstory and mapping to do which is how we ended up with the monster book that is Fire and Blood. 10mo
Kalalalatja @bookandcat that‘s good news, but I still need to see before I believe it 😅 10mo

1. My phone says it‘s 17 (but feels like 4). I‘m not going to check.
2. 75 degrees, sunny, with a light breeze
3. I don‘t know. I don‘t have a thermostat in my apartment; I don‘t control the heat. Fortunately it‘s toasty.
4. Well this would be perfect if I didn‘t have to mind my 3-year-old. I‘d be curled up in bed right now.

Kalalalatja @Reviewsbylola it is mildly (putting it lightly) infuriating! 😅 @LitLogophile true, if we don‘t expect anything, we can only be pleasantly surprised! @FantasyChick best hashtag! 👏 @ofbooksandme I think you are right. Whatever GRRM does now, he will forever be compared to the tv series, and most likely get criticised, because the tv series has become canon now.. @Wife I know what you mean, but I‘m a completeist, I need to finish it 😄 2y
Kalalalatja @julesG @Avidreader25 and that‘s exactly why I haven‘t started reading Rothfuss yet 😄😄 @Gharv right?! How hard can it be to write a 1500+ pages of intricate fantasy drama, with multiple characters who have all kinds of weird ties. No big deal 😂 2y
Gharv @Kalalalatja no kidding! 😂😂😂 2y
SandyW I've moved my GOT allegiance to HBO. They've done a remarkably good job, and by the time GRRM gets the next book out I'd have to do a re read of virtually the entire series... I get it's a process, but authors need to be fair to their audience too. 2y
Gharv Everyone, I‘d love to hear suggestions for other series that you consider to be similar to GOT 2y
Kalalalatja @Gharv this might be stretching it, but The Tudors with Jonathan Rhys Myers reminds me a bit if GoT because of all the drama. No dragons though 🤷‍♀️ 2y

Liatrek I was so happy to see the way things played out for little finger. It was his time to go and the ladies played it beautifully. 3y

Liatrek And wow Ice Dragons!!!!! 3y
swishandflick I don't know - the Targaryen's have a history of keeping it in the family so it may be a workable situation (even if it's cringy, obviously). I have a strong suspicion that by the time they get the news, Danaerys will already be pregnant. Felt like they kept bringing up the "can she or can't she have kids" question ? 3y
Liatrek @swishandflick Very true! Overall I was happy with the finale. Just not looking forward to the wait☹️ 3y
EchoLogical @swishandflick OMG yes. They kept bringing it up. I've never liked Jamie. He's made his bed and now he's got to lie in it. I feel bad for Tormund. I think he'll be the first person to die next season. He and Brienne will never get to make those giant babies. 😭 3y
Dragon I'm not keen on Jon's new first name, but I've been telling everyone at work for literally years that he's the true heir to the Iron Throne 😀🐉 I can't believe I missed the Little Finger execution, I left the room for a minute, grrr - rewatching tomorrow. 3y
Liatrek @EchoLogical I know 😭😭 but they didn't show him die so I have hope. 3y

I am going to set this series at a bail right now because I have absolutely no faith that this series will actually be finished. I did not want to go gently into the night in regards to that revelation but I agree with the author of this article. I'm tempted to write my own fanfiction ending at this point.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/danidiplacido/2017/07/24/george-r-r-martin-announce...

I was really torn between a dragon, a direwolf, and a kraken. Can't I be a #GOT version of Snow White and rule all the creatures?

YOU CANNOT TELL ME ANYTHING WHEN IT COMES TO THE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING CINEMATAGROPHY OF GAME OF THRONES! (Except for season 5. We can forget season 5 ever happened) The rewatch is real! One episode left!

GRRM vent time: finish the damn books George!

WhatDeeReads @TheNextBook It was flawlessly shot. Now, story wise... eh. But gorgeous. 3y
TheNextBook @WhatDeeReads Flawlessly! I was so glad to see Ramsay out of here. The only thing more glorious was the sept explosion to follow! I was so over both of those damn story lines! Both were major reasons why I hated Season 5 with a passion! 3y
WhatDeeReads @TheNextBook Dark Cersei blowing up the crept while drinking wine was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen on television. I did not love how Ramsey died. I'm glad he's gone. I miss Margery, though. 3y
TheNextBook @WhatDeeReads I cannot tell you how many times I watched the opening of the finale! With the piano, organ and cello in the background. I could not get enough. And I hate Cersei but still. I thought Ramsay got the end he deserved. He fell own his own sword. It was hard to watch but after seeing the Stark Banner back up I was ready for it. 3y

With two weeks to go before Season 7 premieres, it's time to start rewatching/binge watching Season 6. Winter is coming!! 😱💀🐲🔥❄️⚔️#GoT #bingewatch

Edit: I'll be starting with Season 1 Episode 1 because. That's all. Because. 🐺🦌🦁🐉

BekahB I need to watch season 6. I couldn't make myself watch it as it was airing because season 5 was so depressing. But I need to watch it before season 7 starts! 3y
Books_Wine_Repeat @BekahB Season 6 isn't much better. No happily ever afters. Still it's so good!!! 3y
vivastory Season 6 was amazing. There were so many moments where I was excitedly waving my arms around & losing my mind. 3y

Books_Wine_Repeat @vivastory So I started the episode and I made it through the 'previously on' portion and knew I had to go back and watch ALL OF IT!! Season 6 was so unbelievably good! Every episode was mind blowing! Btw I have never cried so much as I did in season 6, The Door episode. 😨💔😭😭😭 3y
Scurvygirl @Books_Wine_Repeat @vivastory Season 6 is a mindblower! "The door"! I rewatch all of them a few times a year, it's a problem, I know, I'm working on it. Enjoy your binge. 3y

*clears throat, stands on soapbox, begins screaming loudly*

I MEAN FFS! FINISH THE DAMN BOOKS! IF I HAD BEEN READING THESE BOOKS FOR OVER A DECADE I WOULD BE LOSING MY MIND RIGHT NOW! FINISH THE BOOKS! YES THE SHOW IS AMAZING, AND HONESTLY RIGHT NOW IT IS OVERSHADOWING YOUR BOOKS AND THAT IS A SHAME BECAUSE YOUR BOOKS ARE F!$&KING AMAZING!!! WHY WOULD YOU LET THE TV ADAPTATIONS OF YOUR BOOKS OUTSHINE YOUR BOOKS!

*grabs soapbox, stomps away mad*

Books_Wine_Repeat YES!!! 👏👏👏 3y
Hooked_on_books I agree! Lock him in a room and don't let him out until it's done! 3y

TheNextBook @Books_Wine_Repeat @Hooked_on_books @Librarianaut I am at my wit's end!!! Why would you want to dedicate so much time to a show, that has gone off on its own tangent for the most part, then work on a story you have been perfecting for decades. I don't get it! 3y
sprainedbrain Agree! This is beyond ridiculous. 3y
LectricSheep Maybe he doesn't know how to end it. 😶 3y
cariashley Agree!! 🙄🙄🙄🙄 3y
hlgreenfield I started reading these books right after the 4th one was published! It's been over 10 years and it's so annoying. I accept that sometimes writing takes time and GRRM definitely likes to take his time, but this is ridiculous! He spends loads of time working on other projects so it's kinda disrespectful to the readers! I'm honestly giving up hope of ever knowing how this ends! 3y

The only episode of Game of Thrones that I've ever watched included the Battle of the Bastards, which pretty much sums up the #WeaponsReady sentiment. #WhatAWayToLive #PiratesLife

Waiting for George R.R. Martin to finally finish this series like "Shame (it took you this long). Shame (you started a show that passed your novels in it's time frame). Shame (Winter has come and about to leave without another book). Shame"

TheNextBook "Confess, you like making your fans wait. Confess, you dont have a clue how to end the story. Confess, you want Game of Thrones to have a two hour movie finale. Confess, this wont end for another five years." I should have just watched the show and not read the books because this is too much. #litsyconfession I've never thought that before. Especially because these books are so damn good. (edited) 3y
Bookzombie I watched the first season and then read the first book. I decided after that I wanted to read the books first and I will wait for him to finish. I'm not as invested as some fans but I do wish he would get the hell on with it. 🙂 3y
WhatDeeReads LMAO! I gave up after the first book. My mentor and I both thought it was less painful to just watch the show. 3y

TheNextBook @bookzombie so I didnt start reading the books until after the first season. I stayed on track reading a book after each season until season 4 when they split the fourth book. After season 5 I never read book 4 because I knew they diverged from the book. So I've been waiting for him to finish the damn series so I can finish the damn book series. I really enjoy the books and the show but now I'm just mad with the lack of progress (edited) 3y
TheNextBook @Lucky_LaDee I really enjoyed the books I've read because they are so rich in detail. Reading it while enjoying the show has helped with world building but damn George really! This is just insane. 3y
TrishB I've read them - as 2 different things and an assumption that he'll finish the books differently! 3y
BookishFeminist AMEN. I don't ever like to shame authors for taking their time to write but jfc don't start a show based on your books then if you can't keep up the pace with the plot! Take your time to write OR have a show and make some sacrifices. I love the show and love the books. I'm with you that I'd normally not care but the books are so good! 3y
TheNextBook @TrishB he has to end them differently or have his plot points in the book were a mess. The one that stands out the most to me are Lady Stonheart and the fact that all the Stark Kids, including John, are Worgs not just Bran. 3y
TheNextBook @BookishFeminist my irritation level is on high with this. What is really screwed is that he might actually be influenced by the story on HBO since he still isnt sure how he is going to end it. He just has a general idea. 3y
AJBowers For real!!! 3y

Laalaleighh Hahaha no. 3y
bitterbear @TheNextBook I had a strict policy of not reading a series (books) unless I was sure the last book was coming out (already written publishing date imminent)... I broke my rule with Martin.. F👊cker burned me. 😐😐😐😐😐 3y

#BookLove17 tie breaker post - It blew my mind when I read earlier today that Philip Pullman will publish a new fantasy series set in his beloved world of Lyra, Daemons and Dust. But but but... The Winds of Winter has been on my radar for so long, and with GRRM saying that this might be the year, I have to pick this as my most anticipated new release for 2017 (Although I don't have a pub date yet, but I am not counting on it being before August).

bookwrm526 I believe Pullman more than GRRM at this point lol 3y
Kalalalatja @bookwrm526 yeah me too, but I am crossing everything I have that GRRM might pull through this time! 🤞 3y
Lidia @bookwrm526 @Kalalalatja Me too! I don't believe anything GRRM says about the release of the new book anymore. He's just playing with us! 3y
