5 ⭐️- Sometimes finding a great read is about timing. I first read the first and second GOT books almost 8 years ago. I liked it this first book but DNF‘d the 2nd. Too many people to keep track of!

But sometimes, when you pick a book/series back up, the stars align and it becomes an awesome read. That‘s me and A Game of Thrones. We are now bookish besties. I cannot wait to read book 2.

I haven‘t read this book and couldn‘t get into the TV series, but those dastardly #99pOnKindle offers means I bought this, the first on the series, the other day. I don‘t plan on reading it yet but may use it in a challenge later in the New Year.

JazzFeathers The first book is the only one l read. Never watched the TV show. Can't say it's my kind of fantasy. But it may be yours 😜 3w
Ms_T @JazzFeathers For 99p I‘ll give it a go! 3w
AlaMich I‘ve read the whole (already written) and loved it. Haven‘t seen and have no desire to watch the series. The books have the feel of historical fiction, and although terrible things do happen, they are so much more than that. I hope you enjoy it! 3w

Ms_T @AlaMich That‘s exactly what I was hoping for so fingers crossed 🤞🏻 3w
Centique I read this first one and it was beautifully written. I just couldn‘t bring myself to read the rest once I realised how dark it could get. Still very glad I read it 😊 3w
Ms_T @Centique I‘m actually quite excited to get stuck in to it. 2w

Can someone who is a George R R Martin fan tell me what all books are in the series ? Game of Thrones?

Is that the name of the series or has this author written another series ? The Hubster is looking for something new. I am clueless about these books.

And how many books are in the series and how many are yet to come ? Are the ones pictured all in the complete set ?

Thank you

wanderinglynn The book series is called A Song of Ice and Fire & begins with the first volume entitled, A Game of Thrones (which is the title the TV adaptation used). Martin has published 5 out of a planned 7 volumes. Also, 3 prequel novellas are currently available & several more are planned as well as a series of novella-length excerpts from the main Ice and Fire novels 1mo
ljuliel @wanderinglynn Would you recommend starting with the prequels or the first big book for someone new to them ? (edited) 1mo
mdm139 They are actually called the Song of Ice and Fire series, but since the show came out they are more commonly called the Game of Thrones series. The ones shown are the only ones in the series. Martin is working on another book but he is notorious for taking several years to write them. To be fair they are very detailed and wonderful. 1mo

KathyWheeler The name of the series is A Song of Ice and Fire. Those books in the picture are the only books that are part of the series. The are 5 — the 6th one has allegedly been coming out for years. The titles are Game of Thrones, Clash of Kings, Storm of Swords, A Feast of Crows, and A Dance With Dragons. He does have other books but they aren‘t part of the series. I liked them (except 4) — they are surprisingly quick reads. 1mo
mdm139 There are a few prequel books available as well 1mo
ljuliel Thank you @wanderinglynn @mdm139 @KathyWheeler . Do they take place on Earth or in space or a fantasy land like Lord of the Rings ? (edited) 1mo
wanderinglynn No, you do not need to start with the prequels. 1mo
ljuliel And would someone like Lord of the Rings if they like this series ? I‘m honestly a blank when it comes to fantasy / sci-fi 1mo
wanderinglynn On the fictional continents Westeros and Essos. They‘re classified as fantasy, like Lord of the Rings, but with dragons. And yes, someone who likes LOTR would most likely enjoy Song of Ice & Fire and visa-versa. (edited) 1mo
mdm139 I agree with @wanderinglynn 1mo
ljuliel Thanks , guys, you‘ve been a big help. ✨✨✨ 1mo
KathyWheeler I agree with @wanderinglynn. Someone who likes The Lord of the Rings will probably also like this. I like both. 1mo
ljuliel Thank you @KathyWheeler . I know nothing about this category of book, but the husband has become a huge audiobook fan in the past couple of years. He‘s currently on a Stephen King kick, but I know he‘ll run out of them, and trying to think of other types of books he‘d like. He loved the movie Braveheart. I have no idea if it‘d compare to these type of books or not, but I thought they might. Just guessing. 1mo
vivastory He has 2 separate prequels to the Song of Ice & Fire series which is what you have posted. I definitely recommend the set you posted, even though it's incomplete. One of the prequels, which stands on its own but he might add onto at some point in the future is collected in 1mo
vivastory The upcoming HBO series, House of Dragons, is going to be based on his other prequel to the events of Song of Ice and Fire. Martin has called it his Silmarillion. There's one volume out now & one more planned volume 1mo
ljuliel Thank you @vivastory. I‘ll make sure to tell him about what you mentioned. I appreciate the help. 1mo
KathyWheeler @ljuliel Is he listening to King‘s The Dark Tower series? That‘s excellent. 1mo
ljuliel @KathyWheeler He has yet to get to those. He‘s currently halfway through The Institute. He‘s skipping around, so not going in order of publication. I never thought I‘d see the day he‘d enjoy books so much ! He has quite a long drive to work, so he listens on the way , on his lunch break and on his way home. His coworkers have also started reading King, so they sorta have a mini- book group at work. He‘s quite enthusiastic with it ! 1mo
Andrew65 @wanderinglynn I‘d agree. @ljuliel I‘d also recommend the Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss. Great fantasy. 1mo
ljuliel Thanks for the suggestion @Andrew65 I‘ll make sure to pass them along to him. These should keep him occupied 😊 1mo
wanderinglynn @Andrew65 YES! ❤️❤️ Love Rothfuss! So much more than either Tolkien or Martin. 👍🏻👍🏻 1mo
Andrew65 @wanderinglynn Me too, and can‘t wait for August and the new book. 1mo

I have forced myself to read a lot of books. But no book have forced me to read it like A game of thrones. I love the way its written, especially the varying character POV. For a moment you will be in cold and green winterfell and the next you will be at hot and wild grass lands of Dothraki sea.

My dirty secret is that I love Cersei from The Song of Ice and Fire series. 😍 And I'm always so torn about it, because there are so many reasons to hate her! But I guess I love how she is fearless and kind of brutal, making her mark in a man's world. 🦁 💕 She's certainly not my favorite character (Targaryen pride!), but I do really just love her to pieces!

When you play a game of thrones you win or you die.
I didnt think I would ever read this book as it is so huge.But now that I have I thank the gods(old and the new) :P
The series is undoubtedly dark. The sex scenes and violence are spread throughout the book, but it was never too much. I think it was a fair balance for the story being told.
I usually pick my favorite characters quickly, I loved Tyrion,Daenerys,Jon ,Arya & ALL the direwolves.

Yesterday night was the Chicago Public Library‘s annual Carl Sandburg Literary Award dinner and, as always, it was super fun. Dr. Eve L. Ewing (writes nonfiction, poetry & comics) received the 21st Century Award while George R.R. Martin received the Carl Sandburg Literary Award. Also enjoyed a great conversation with the author at our table who wrote a book about Chicago in the 60s. So many authors...so many books...so much fun.

Over 800 pages! In most cases, I can say I read the book before the movie/series, not this time.Didn‘t have HBO but starting watching GOT on DVD in 2017 .Got HBO just to watch the last season , & am rewatching it again.Excellent book,hope to get to the other books ...soon.Great characters ,great adventure,where is that last book Mr. Martin?🤔

CoffeeCatsBooks Nice thing about coming to the series later, at least you don‘t have to wait years in between all the books (just this last one/two). 3mo
Leftcoastzen @CoffeeCatsBooks Indeed! If I wasn‘t so backed up with #chunksters I would probably start the next one. 3mo

I SEE what all the hype is about now!

This was certainly an epic novel with well developed characters, wolf pups, and dragons!

I grew to really enjoy the writing style and the change of characters between chapters. By far Arya and Danny are the best. I definitely enjoyed their perceptions the most.

While I did watch the series, already I see how the books are so much more detailed. Can‘t wait for the next one!!

Did anyone watch this video today? I clicked on it because it had GOT and i saw it on trending.
And i don't think anyone could have made a better explanation for why the last season was terrible.

https://youtu.be/BGr0NRx3TKU

If anyone is a GOT fan and disliked the last season, the video is worth a watch.

Redwritinghood I can‘t believe that I haven‘t gotten around to watching the last two seasons yet! I‘m worried now after so many people hated the final season. 5mo
vivastory I know this is about as #unpopularopinion as you can get, but I really don't think the last season was bad. 5mo
sudi @Redwritinghood i thought they ruined the show for me. I can't even get myself to rewatch it because all the plots eventually led to nothing in the end. But i guesss there are some people who like it, so i guess it depends on the person. 5mo
