A Game of Thrones
A Game of Thrones | George R. R. Martin
The first volume of A Song of Ice and Fire, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. GAME OF THRONES is now a major TV series from HBO, starring Sean Bean. Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun. As Warden of the north, Lord Eddard Stark counts it a curse when King Robert bestows on him the office of the Hand. His honour weighs him down at court where a true man does what he will, not what he must and a dead enemy is a thing of beauty. The old gods have no power in the south, Stark s family is split and there is treachery at court. Worse, the vengeance-mad heir of the deposed Dragon King has grown to maturity in exile in the Free Cities. He claims the Iron Throne.

I found books 1-4 of this series in the Little Free Library that‘s dangerously close to my house. I‘m there way too often. The back of this book says it‘s book 1. Internet says there‘s another before it. So which is it? There was another book 1 in the LFL, but the summaries on the back were identical.

Bklover First book is A Song of Fire and Ice. The first sentence of the prologue reads: “We should start back” Gared urged as the woods began to grow dark around them. (edited) 3w
smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @Bklover it‘s the same in this book. 3w

I found myself reading it just for the heck of it. Which is why I had trouble getting through it and thought it was a bit boring probably because I had the show in mind.

Finally made it through! Toddler reset my clock for #20in4 so I have no idea how many hours I read but the #audiobook is 30hrs long so it's safe to say I'm approaching the 20hr mark at least 😅

Loved the show (we don't talk about the final season) so it was high time I started the series. So captivating. My only dilemma now? Do I start up book 2 or take a break for something a little less intense?

persephone1408 @FantasyChick I need to know if game of thrones is like fire & Blood. So when something happens, there are 4 different conflicting stories as to how it went down. Is got like that??? 3mo
FantasyChick @persephone1408 I haven't read Fire & Blood yet (I'm waiting until after I finish the series so far) so I'm not sure how it compares. But I CAN tell you that there are several POV's in GOT with a lot of events happening consecutively but I wouldn't say they have conflicting stories on how things happen. There may be characters left in the dark at times but it's all very cohesive and very well done. 3mo
FantasyChick There is a TON of history, world building and character arcs so lots to pay attention to or things can easily get missed or confused. It's quite the ride lol 3mo

Didn't get as much audio in as I had wanted today. Too many kids and too much stuff going on but I did manage a bit while doing a full day's worth of batch cooking for the freezer. 35 double portioned meals ready and 5 different meals cooked.

Now I'm ready to kick back for the night and dig into a good book....and maybe a bath

The only perks of a tedious project? Snacks and audiobooks!

I'm holding off on watching House of the Dragon until they get a few episodes in to see how I feel about (though I'm still pissed about how GOT ended) but I have decided to start listening to the series. Not the greatest narrator but I'm 3 days and 12hrs in so it's much better than my last attempt

He felt bad bc he could only get used ones in time- like I cared! :) he does not understand the way of the bookworm lol!

As someone who has watched the show I can assure you the books are way much better.
Although the show did a good job it‘s just not enough to portray every emotion the book gives you.
Now let‘s go to the second one. A Clash of Kings here we go!

After finishing Road of Bones I decided to watch a winter horror movie. I settled on the 2011 The Thing prequel, a movie that I have watched twice before & enjoyed. It has been years since I last saw it. How long? Well, I did a double take when Kristofer Hivju now immortalized in his role as Tormund Giantsbane showed up...

Reggie Because of your Road of Bones review I also picked a wintery movie on shudder called The Last Winter. Slow but given climate change pretty decent. 10mo

#wondrouswednesday @Eggs

1) Tagged. ASOIAF has a brilliant cast of characters. I would also say One Day by David Nicholls for believable, flawed characters that feel like real people.

2) Lolita is probably the most controversial book I've read in recent years.

3) Fantasy, non-fiction and literary fiction... I like to have a few genres on the go at a time so I can read what I'm in the mood for.

I started this in May 2021 with the goal that it would be part of the over 100 I read last year. I didn't quite get through it before January 1 but here we are. It's very descriptive so slow reading and a very long book on top. Next in the series goes on the currently reading list with the goal to complete during this year. #01-2022

I did not expect to enjoy this book, however, I stayed interested in it all the way to the end. Typically, with long tedious books, I never make it past the halfway mark either through audio or reading so I am pleasantly surprised that I was able to finish it.

1) Re-read of Eye of the World by Robert Jordan. Decided to give the audio version narrated by Rosamund Pike a try. Only a couple of hours in, and she is killing it! Two 👍🏽 up!
2) Love the Rankin/Bass production of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Elf.
3). Tagged title. Normally I would say “Winter is Coming”, but temps were in the 60‘s today which is very unusual for the Midwest.
