I'm really enjoying this series. I'm surprised by the characters that I have come to like (Jaime), while there are some I still dislike (Danaerys) and some I will always look forward to (Tyrion, Arya) but overall I am so into these books.

KathyWheeler I was so shocked that I came to really like Jaime! He grows so much throughout these books though, and you see so many sides of him. 3mo

Part 3 physical tbr- I‘ve been focused on library books lately because I know my own books aren‘t going anywhere which has been really good in stopping me buying books, but after doing this my goal is to find a good balance between library books and my reducing my own tbr.

Physical tbr part 2- hopefully this can push me to focus on my own books a bit I might try this again in a few months to see if there‘s much difference 🤞

inmegslibrary I love this idea! 5mo
Boooooks Thanks I saw a video of someone doing this on YouTube and only turning books around once they had read them I thought it‘s a good way to tackle the tbr but I can‘t commit to the plain spines 😂 5mo

All the blank spines are books on my physical tbr that I haven‘t read yet 😬 I wanted to see what it actually looks like not to bad so far. Part 1

#GoTCaD book 3 done not my favourite but shocks galore.

Discussion questions 1) have you changed house after reading this?
2) Martin is obviously house Stark how does that show in the story?
3) Most shocking moment?
4) How does the narrative style reflect real life?
5) Favourite characters?
6) Least favourite character?
7) The Wildings & the Others?
8) Why does Jon Snow make the choice he does?
9) Predictions for next book?

BookwormM 1) still a Stark here. 2) most chapters are from a Stark POV or features a Stark. Stark‘s are honourable and brave. 3) Sansa‘s marriage which was very clever manipulation and Jaime losing his sword hand I fully expected to see him in a fighting role. (edited) 12mo
BookwormM 4) Each character only knows what has happened where they are for sure but rumours and gossip spread so characters have an idea even if it‘s wrong of other events. 5) Tyrion I think he is acting honourably while still maintaining loyalty to family 6) 12mo
BookwormM 6) Craster he is just a horrible human being. 7) The free folk have seen their chance and are taking it and who can blame them when winter is coming. I like the dynamic with warrior women making their own decisions and standing up to men a big contrast with the “civilised” world. 8) Jon always remained a brother he has feelings for Ygritte but cares more about his home country (edited) 12mo

BookwormM 9) All bets are off I have no idea where Martin will go with this. I hope Jon finds Rickon and Bran and that the wolves return to them. 12mo
BookwormAHN 1- Nope, still House Targaryen 2- The Starks are definitely most prominent. 3- Jaime losing his sword hand was quite shocking. 12mo
BookwormAHN 4- You really get to see what the characters are going through. 5- Tyrion and Danny 6- Craster and Ramsay 12mo
BookwormAHN 7- The free folk are coming. 8- Jon is torn between the Nights Watch and Yegritte but is to much of a Stark to pick love over duty. 9- Walder Frey becomes a monster. 12mo
Chili 1. Still a Stark and always will be. 2. Most of the storylines feature a Stark in some way. 3. Jaime losing his sword hand and Robb marrying Jeyne when he was promised to a Frey. 12mo
Chili 4. The characters can‘t see the big picture only what is happening to them. They have no idea how their actions are affecting anything or anybody else. 5. Tyrion and Arya. 12mo
Chili 6. There are so many evil characters it‘s hard to choose. Always Cersei and Craster is beyond disgusting. 7. I think the free folk have it more together than the “civilized” folks. The women can think and make decisions for themselves, unlike the high born, who are at the mercy of the men in their lives. I haven‘t figured out the others yet. (edited) 12mo
Chili 8. Jon is a Stark at heart. He puts his duty to the Nightwatch over his feelings for Ygritte. 9. More characters are going to die. 12mo

Took me awhile to finish this because I‘ve started babysitting 8 month old twins and they don‘t allow me to get much reading done. This is only the 4th book I‘ve read in August. 😕

Erofan Such a beautiful bookmark!😍 1y

Back to Westeros I go! My first copy of this book is only one book about the same size as this one, so I‘m curious to see if it‘s the same or not.

Stacy_31 Love your bookmark! 1y
Literary_Siren @Stacy_31 Thank you! It came in one of my OwlCrate boxes. 1y
sudi I just finished re - reading this 😊 1y
Literary_Siren @sudi I‘m slowly making my way back through the series. I‘m not reading them as quickly as I did the first time; I think it took me around 2 weeks to read them all. 1y
sudi @Literary_Siren same, i noticed it's taking a lot longer the 2nd time around, probably because this time i know what's going to happen in the story 1y

Loving see how the story and characters evolve. Martin never fails to impress with each chapter and verse.

The best one yet! Loved book 1, enjoyed book 2 but got a bit bogged down with long battles, but book 3 is amazing! Knights are changing sides, regrouping, examining political allegiances, nursing there wounds and counting the costs of war. Rebels and low folk show tenacity, moral fibre and good sense as the whole politics of the wall - and the rights to land, sea and air, who we let in or keep out, couldn't feel more relevant if it tried!

Only two more weeks until Game of Thrones returns! Who's excited?! I AM! 👸🏻⚔️

taylormariewrites @TheOtherMother eek! That's so tough! I would get spoiled in five seconds, and since all of the books aren't out, I've just been watching the show. But I'm also reading the books! Good luck! 🌟 2y
taylormariewrites @georgianicolaoublog thank you! Me too! 🙌🏻 2y
Sophoclessweetheart Thanks sweets. I've actually been amazed by how very very few spoilers I've come across about the show. 💁🏼Like, I've avoided it pretty well 😂 2y

I'm giving this 4 ⭐️ simply because I didn't enjoy it as much as the first two books. I did like the book, I love this series and the world building is amazing. But- I found a lot of the characters chapters rather dull in this one (Davos and Catelyn, I'm looking at you). I've enjoyed learning more about Jaime in this one though.

I WILL finish this God forsaken book today if I have to stay up all night. I am so very excited to get to part two but also so so hoping it doesn't drag over two months like this one has. I hate it when other distractions lead to my books taking forever to read. I mean with OiTNB and being ill and unable to read 🙄#epicreads #fantasy #booklover #bibliophile #georgerrmartin

Making the attempt to finish quite a chunk of Part I tonight. I've been reading this book on and off for over a month and it's annoying me that it's taking so long because I AM enjoying it! I've got my new Robin Hobb book coming Saturday and I want to read it right away so I am aiming to finish this on time! #epicreads #booklover #fantasy #bibliophile #georgerrmartin

georgianicolaoublog I've been trying to read GoT for a year now and it's so difficult! 2y
Sophoclessweetheart @georgianicolaoublog I flew through the first two but I've had other commitments during the read of this one so it seems to be taking forever. 2y

I'm over halfway through SoS pt I now and I have to say I am blown away over the amount of turncoats and backstabbers in this one! Everyone's out to get everyone and friends are completely unreliable. I love Westeros but I wouldn't want to live there in times like these. I'm hoping I can finish the book before the weekend but we shall see. #epicreads #booklover #bibliophile #georgerrmartin #fantasy

I have to admit that as much as I adore ASOIAF, I'm only on book three. Dear Mr Martin is so very casual (or let's be honest, slow) writing his books I know that I'll get to the last book and die waiting for WoW to be finished so I'm taking them slooooow. I am also a master ninja as I am saving the show until I've finished all the books and have yet to meet spoilers! 🖤#fantasy #epicreads #asoiaf #bibilophile #booklover #georgerrmartin

literarywisdom I've only read the first book but I adored it :) 2y
Sophoclessweetheart @literarywisdom Oh Lauren! I absolutely adore the series. It's brilliant. Book two may be my favourite so far. 🖤🖤 2y
literarywisdom I must get to it ASAP. My plan is the reread the first book which I recently got the illustrated version. And I hope to finish both the book and TV series completed by the end of the year. I've only seen the first series as well 2y
Sophoclessweetheart @literarywisdom That's a good goal. Though the show is completely out of bounds for me until I've read allllll the books. I always find one spoilers the other otherwise. But I'm very excited to try it. 🖤 2y

My partner is on a train back from a conference. He isn't much of a reader (prefers to spend his spare time gaming or watching the tv), so this text made me so happy ☺
