A Song of Ice and Fire
I’m a big non-fiction buff. Give me some true crime, a dictionary, anything on Afghanistan and I’ll be locked in my room, not to be seen for days. I like to mix it up on occasion with a good fiction book, but I don’t often venture out of those genres. Sure, I see lots of members renting and downloading Sci-Fi, Romance, and Suspense titles that look interesting, but I still tend to stick to what I know I like.
So, when a friend recently coerced me into reading a fantasy book, I wasn’t sure what to expect. And when I googled the author and saw that he looked like a New England fisherman, I had my doubts. But, I sucked it up and hoped for the best.
I just finished the second book and haven’t gotten the 3rd yet and I miss it. Like I’d miss my right arm if it wasn’t there. It’s the kind of book where I will skip supper and crawl into bed at 5 so I can spend the night reading. The kind of book that I want to make people read so we can pretend to be princesses, or knights, or princess knights. And we would talk about dragonglass and Valyrian steel, how ‘Winter is coming’ and when, for the love of gods old and new, is someone going to kill Joffrey and Cersei?
So, read the books and let’s talk. I need someone to discuss the fate of the Seven Kingdoms with.
