#HitTheNorth & The North strikes back, because as we all know, the North remembers! I recently purchased the tagged book & although I have not yet read it cover to cover, I've enjoyed browsing through it.
I am in such awe of George R. R. Martin because can create a whole different world with its own history and lore. It‘s basically a history book so it can come off as dry to some readers. The book covers every event in Westeros history including information about lands beyond Westeros. The illustrations were stunning and my favorite part of the book.
Especially for @AlaMich 😘
Thanks for all (after all)
I am one spoiled momma today! The little music box plays the GOT theme💞 Another beautiful book for my GOT collection. A pin and book bag from one of my favorite podcasts-My Favorite Murder💖 And a bunch of gardening items (some not shown-already planted/in use)
My kids are so thoughtful!
March 1st tbr read selfie 😊
Yay!!! my sis just drop off this book and a B&N gift card for my bday 🎉🎉
Want a little backstory? Hoo boy!
Deep fried turkey was a huge hit! The last of the family have gone...a bit of cleaning up to do then nothing but reading and cold turkey sandwiches on the agenda for the next 3 days! I love Christmas, but for us it falls into two distinct halves...first half is crazy full on, second half is mellow. I look forward to that bit!
#WinterWonderland Day 12: A veritable #FireAndIce, think of this as a historical tome of a book exploring the many lands and characters in Westeros and beyond. One of those chunksters that I did manage to finish reading - mainly because of the exquisite art found inside. Add the fact that I am an unapologetic GoT fan.
Omg @Chrissyreadit you were beyond generous in this swap!! Thank you so much for all the items! I will be planning my first LoTR marathon here soon!! The bookmark is gorgeous! Coffee smells amazing (I‘ll be brewing that here in a moment!), & I didn‘t even know about this GoT Book which is perfect! Happy open day & I hope you like ur items as much as I adore all mine! Thank you so much ❤️! #aswapoficeandfire #asoiaf @jenniferw88 Thanks for hosting!
I thoroughly enjoyed the depth and character this book brings to the already complex world of Westeros and Essos. It provides background and context to areas that have yet to be touched by the narrative of A Song of Fire and Ice. I am continually amazed at the worlds that fantasy writers bring to life! I just wish The Winds of Winter would be released already. Am I right?
I'm starting this tonight. My son claims to be a bigger fan since he has read this. I think not young man.
So true. Happy New year's! Hope 2018 is a healthy & happy time for you all & has many a joyful hour passed with a new or old book ☺
When you're jonesing hard for more Game of Thrones you start looking for licensed source material...320+ pages awaiting my reading.
What do you do when it's 4:30am and you locked your cats out of your room to get some sleep but you can't sleep? Read about ancient worlds of course!! I ate too many cookies, my tummy hurts. Gonna stock up on fruit tomorrow 👍😉Hope your day starts off better than mine!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Slowly making my way through this bad boy! If you're a fan of the books, pick this up!
The art in this book is incredible!!! 🐲 There's something cool on every page!
After last night's episode of GoT I can't stop thinking about Westeros and Essos, so I'm starting this now!! I'm going to try to read a few pages a day 🐲✨
Picked this up at the library and the illustrations are glorious. But when I started to go through it, I found that the history was fascinating. A great book if you want to know everything from the prehistory of westeros and the beings that inhabited the world from its inception to the background of all the tribes and the evolution of the kingdom. Highly recommend to all GoT fans of both the books and the series.
QoTD: Dragons! What will be the color of your dragon if you're a Dragon Rider?
I am in need of dragon plushie or a Drogon/Smaug Funko 😂 Somebody send me one 😭
Lol anyways. I want the next episode of game of thrones right meow! (The only reason I look forward on Mondays 😂) so yeah, my dragon would be black and will have purple highlights on its scales if light shines on them 😆😂

Finally done reading this one! So much information that was really fascinating about Westeros and beyond (like, who knew Sothoryos was a thing?). My one wish was that there were more maps, especially in the sections on Essos, so I could reference where all these places were in relation to one another.
Still trying to make my way through this one... Super interesting but there's so much information!
One of the prettiest books I have ever owned. I have a love for encyclopedia like books because of the history. I grew up with history and encyclopedia books before I started reading fiction.
Even though everything in this is fiction but it is still history lol. A fictional history but I still consider it lol.

#LyricalApril #day17 #Maps This book has the most beautifully drawn maps. I love when a series that is so loved publishes extra books with maps, history & background of the world they've written about and you've only ever seen inside your own imagination. Fleshes it out, so to speak.
5/5⭐️A must-read for all the die hard asoiaf-fans! Read in December 2014.
Checked this beauty out from the library today. Not sure if I'll get all the way through it in the initial 3 weeks but I can always renew it. Flipping through it, it has beautiful illustrations and interesting information to fill in backstory
Remember when being able to draw parallels between GoT and the real world was funny? 😖
Whhhhy do u have coverings on the books? Doesn't B&N know we want to touch and look and see the books? 👀
I like it when authors keep a bit of mystery, but I hope that Martin will also finish not only book 6 & 7, but also the planned novella about the Dance of the Dragons. I would love to see how the Tagaryens interacted with their dragons before they died out. #photoadaynov16 #herebedragons
