A Dance with Dragons
A Dance with Dragons | George R. R. Martin
GAME OF THRONES: A NEW ORIGINAL SERIES, NOW ON HBO. Dubbed "the American Tolkien" by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the #1 New York Times bestselling author delivers the fifth book in his landmark series--as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire. A DANCE WITH DRAGONS A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK FIVE In the aftermath of a colossal battle, the future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance--beset by newly emerging threats from every direction. In the east, Daenerys Targaryen, the last scion of House Targaryen, rules with her three dragons as queen of a city built on dust and death. But Daenerys has thousands of enemies, and many have set out to find her. As they gather, one young man embarks upon his own quest for the queen, with an entirely different goal in mind. Fleeing from Westeros with a price on his head, Tyrion Lannister, too, is making his way to Daenerys. But his newest allies in this quest are not the rag-tag band they seem, and at their heart lies one who could undo Daenerys's claim to Westeros forever. Meanwhile, to the north lies the mammoth Wall of ice and stone--a structure only as strong as those guarding it. There, Jon Snow, 998th Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, will face his greatest challenge. For he has powerful foes not only within the Watch but also beyond, in the land of the creatures of ice. From all corners, bitter conflicts reignite, intimate betrayals are perpetrated, and a grand cast of outlaws and priests, soldiers and skinchangers, nobles and slaves, will face seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Some will fail, others will grow in the strength of darkness. But in a time of rising restlessness, the tides of destiny and politics will lead inevitably to the greatest dance of all.

I can‘t sleep so I‘m reading this amazing fifth book of the series while my fiancé and my one dog sleeps beside me and my German Shepherd slips in and out of the room. Oh how I hate insomnia.

Nute I have insomnia frequently. I should start opting to read on its occurrence. Usually I just remain still in the bed and beg sleep to return. That never works. So next time I‘ll try reading!🙂 6mo
alliworm88 @Nute it helps me because it starts to make my eyes become heavy and I soon fall asleep. I have to warn you though: sometimes it DOESNT help. Lol. Depends on how good the book is and how bad the insomnia is that night but usually it helps me. 6mo

With at least 2 hours in, I'm at the middle of A Dance With Dragons. -- I'm impressed to see Duolingo has lessons in High Valyrian 😄 Currently I'm dedicated to Japanese and German, while reaching the top score (30 people in a leaderboard) with my studies.

DieAReader That‘s fantastic! Great job🥳🥰 8mo

I got sidetracked a bit this weekend, with an hour yesterday, and another in today; waiting a near hour in the car, while my dad got the groceries. 😄 I'll say 4 hours in for 20in4.

Andrew65 Thanks for playing along and well done in the reading you got in. 👏👏👏🎉🥳 10mo

Hi all! -- Sorry I've been away and sleeping in again. I found myself in a bit of the reading slumps, but really getting into the pen pal (Slowly app) writing, throughout March. -- I'm finally back to work at the restaurant this week! I'm yet again, reshuffling my reads, and resuming A Dance with Dragons.

I am posting one book per day from my to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it, I just do. Some will be old, some will be new - don‘t judge me I have a lot of books.
Join the fun if you want. This is day 43.

TK-421 Good one! I really need to read these books & watch the series! They‘ve been on my TBR for years. Maybe 2021 will be the year I tackle them & finally fully understand the memes in context 😂 13mo

2.5 STARS - I made my 2020 goal of reading the 5 books in the GOT series! It was a looong haul of 5,139 pages but I did it. Was it awesome? Meh. 'Ol Georgie loves lots of details & adding subplots & superfluous characters up the wazoo. Great premise but underwhelming and overly drawn out execution with this book.

My pick is fictional. Samwell Tarly from the ASOIAF books. He may not have the brawn, but he has the brains. When faced with a dilemma, he dives into books for a solution.

Thanks for the tag @IndoorDame 😊

A local friend of mine, makes some really cool soap bar dragon eyes, and crystal clusters. 🤓🐲 These go on my bookshelf, while I'm looking forward to one of her 'King of the North' minty marble bars. This weekend has a marketplace event for more!

Chrissyreadit Does she have an Etsy shop? I would love to get one for my SIL. 2y
AlobelThee @Chrissyreadit I'm not sure if she's selling online, but could get back to you on it. These are starting out new and may be awhile. The business name is Cardinal Soaps, by Daphne in Pefferlaw, Ontario. 2y

quote
MicheleCroft
A Dance with Dragons | George R. R. Martin

Men live their lives trapped in an eternal present, between the mists of memory and the sea of shadow that is all we know of the days to come. Certain moths live their whole lives in a day, yet to them that little span of time must seem as long as years and decades do to us. An oak may live three hundred years, a redwood tree three thousand. To them seasons pass in the flutter of a moth's wing, and past, present, and future are one.
-Lord Brynden

quote
MicheleCroft
A Dance with Dragons | George R. R. Martin

Time is different for a tree than for a man. Sun and soil and water, these are the things a tree understands, not days and years and centuries. For men, time is a river. We are trapped in its flow, hurtling from past to present, always in the same direction. The lives of trees are different. They root and grow and die in one place, and that river does not move them. The oak is the acorn, the acorn is the oak.
--Lord Brynden

All caught up and I liked this one a lot! Tyrion‘s plot was super exciting and different from the show so it felt fresh. I ended up loving Quentyn Martell. Unfortunately, he got exactly what he went to Meereen for: “Fire and blood.” Finally, it is buckwild to me that Arya has these warg-like abilities that weren‘t even mentioned in the show! I guess I‘ll read the prequel while waiting for The Winds of Winter since GRRM is taking his sweet time.
