I was one of those people who “had never seen Game of Thrones” until March of this year and once I finally started, to the absolute excitement of my best friend who had been begging me to watch it for years, I couldn’t stop. I could not get enough of it. Then, as soon as I had started, I was all caught up. I needed more.
That’s when I decided to start the long journey of reading all the books in A Song of Ice and Fire. A wild idea. Five novels, 4,228 pages, and two more promised novels. When I said I needed more, I meant it. I went out and bought all 5 novels within two days of finishing up the series.
Now, I had a full-time job and life things that happened so I haven’t made nearly as much progress as I’d like, but I’m half way into the second novel, A Clash of Kings. I love, love, love the books. They are so vivid and full of detail. I even have a greater appreciation for the series because it follows pretty close to the books (with what I’ve seen so far- I know there will be parts of the books that have been excluded from the series).
I look forward to having read all of them, a grand feat that will be! I’ve previously mentioned that I’ve gotten back into reading more this last year so this will really be a proud moment for me. I’m sure I will write more about the books and my progress along the way! I will, however, need to take breaks from time to time to read other things… There is such a thing as too much of a good thing!
