Are you a voracious reader with a constant stream of books lined up on your shelves? Do you buy more books than you can possibly read at a time? Are you on Goodreads recommending new books for people to try? Do you love analyzing stories? Are you looking to share your thoughts and analyses…
Its been way too long since I posted anything! I haven’t stopped reading, never fear that! I am currently doing a re-read of A Song of Ice and Fire. I haven’t done a complete re-read in awhile, and after season 5 of Game of Thrones, I decided it was time to do one.
I am a huge fan of the show, and I have not minded most of the changes, but this past season I was disappointed. The Dorne plot line in the books was one of my favorites (although I know many disagree), but I was incredibly disappointed with the way it was portrayed on the show. Don’t get me started on Sansa showing up at Winterfell and marrying Ramsey. Because of that, and the fact that the show has mostly caught up with the books, my plan is to skip the next season or two. To me this is George’s story, and I want to hear it from him first, before I get the TV version.
Anyway, I am not reviewing A Song of Ice and Fire. When I finish my re-read, I will pick up with new books again. I have quite a few books in the cue, so I have will have plenty to write about. Currently, I am about a third of the way through A Feast for Crows.
Also, my goal is to get on a regular schedule (once a month or more) and stick to it. I’ve been bad about that, but I’m trying to do better!
I’ve never done this before and its really scary!
The simple fact is that I love books and I want to write about them. They won’t necessarily be the latest books out there, but they will be books that I’m currently reading.
My first love is fantasy (think Lord of the Rings, Wheel of Time, and A Song of Ice and Fire). Throw in a little urban fantasy, some paranormal and the occasional historical fiction, and you’ll see how my tastes run. I will also do some literary fiction, just to get a break.
Bare with me while I get the hang of this!
I am currently reading the Lion of Macedon by David Gemmell.
Oh, and I’l throw in comments about various tv and movies too. Just because I can I guess.
