Some of you might understand the title of this post. The rest of you will just think I’m crazy. Both work fine for me.
I have never watched the Game of Thrones show, but heard so much about it that I was seriously intrigued. Sounded like it was exactly up my alley. But I don’t really dig fads and jumping on bandwagons and going with the flow… I’m more of an against the grain kinda girl. So I decided to read the books, and bugger with the TV show! I finished Game of Thrones in 2 weeks.
It. Was. Excruciating.
It never takes me longer than 2 days to read a book… but with 700+ pages and the craziest damn people/places/thing names I’ve ever encountered in my life, the going was slow. I read every damn night. From the second Little J laid her head on the pillow to the moment my eyes fell asleep, still clutching my iPhone like my life depended on it. Cause I read it on my Kindle app.
Of course when I finished it I couldn’t stop…. I am in it for the long haul damnit. I don’t start a series without intention of finishing……. so now I’m reading Clash of Kings.
If I thought Game of Thrones was good, I was clearly delirious. Because Clash of Kings is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can’t stop reading it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Last night I read until midnight, then passed out in the recliner, iPhone in hand. I woke up at 1:45am, so you would think I’d drag my tired ass to bed at that point right?
Instead I picked up where I left off (in bed, at least) and read until 2:15am when again I could not keep my eyes open any longer.
My dreams were intense.
My head is spinning.
I almost called out of work today just to finish the book. I’m on page 618 of 760. This book is about to get demolished.
I don’t even know what the next title is in the Song of Ice and Fire series but you can bet your ass I’ll have my nose in it very soon.
