A Game of Thrones | George R. R. Martin

Just finished reading “A Game Of Thrones” The first Book in the series “A Song of Ice and Fire” and I loved it even though it was note for note the same as the first season so had to remind myself the book came before the series! Took me 3 weeks which I thinks good for a 780 page book just can‘t wait to crack on with the next one “A Clash Of Kings”. Would highly recommend for both those who have watched the series or not.

rretzler It‘s a great series. I‘ve been holding off watching past the 5th season because I‘d like to wait for the books, but I‘ve already been waiting a long time! 5mo
Issy_King @rretzler unfortunately I don‘t think they will be released for at least another year or two, Martin recently responded to rumours saying he‘s still writing Winds of Winter and hasn‘t started the next 5mo
rretzler I think a year or two is optimistic, unless the rumors that he‘s been denying for the past couple of days are actually true. He‘s been writing Winds of Winter for 8 years now. (There was 7 between books 4 & 5). He‘s 71, so I doubt that we will ever see A Dream of Spring, even if Winds does eventually come out. 😔 5mo

Bridge of Clay | Markus Zusak

I wasn‘t sure about this book, I absolutely loved “The Book Thief” and it‘s one of my favourites. I was interested to see what Marcus did this time considering he wasn‘t writing about anything historical but I just couldn‘t get into it. I found it confusing and hard to keep up with, if anyone has read it or reading I‘d be interested to hear your thoughts and whether I should give it another go?

“Let's not forget The Things They Do To Make Themselves Happy That Actually Make Them Miserable. This is an infinite list. It includes - shopping, watching TV, taking the better job, getting the bigger house, writing a semi-autobiographical novel, educating their young, making their skin look mildly less old and harboring a vague desire to believe there might be a meaning to it all.”

A beautiful book that faces the subject of addiction head on and even though it may be harsh it is true to the bone about what life is like as a child living with addiction, especially when that addiction is alcoholism which is normally not taken into consideration and turned a blind eye when in some cases it is just as devastating as that of drugs. A beautiful and heartbreaking story gripped with emotions that handles a taboo subject in style.

tpixie Great review. Welcome to Litsy! 🥳📚🥳 (edited) 5mo
