Who wants jewelry when you can get books? 🎁📖🎈🎂
Loved the natural light coming into my library this morning
I should be reading this weekend, but instead I‘m binge watching some GOT‘s, and wishing the books were finished so I knew what was coming. And I finally understand why my one friend refuses to read unfinished series. 😱
I‘m still rooting for Jon though...he my “know nothing”, but he‘s always willing to listen and learn and treat everyone with compassion.
1. Game of Thrones (boxed set, please)

“That‘s what I do. I drink and I know things.” -Tyrion Lannister
My #LitsyPartyofOne menu consists of hot wings, cheesy ranch potatoes, and a Redd‘s Apple Ale in my favorite bookish mug. I have to represent Tyrion even if I despise the rest of House Lannister. 😂
Happy birthday George R. R. Martin, and it‘s like Christmas for me!!! Thank you so much @jillannjohn I love my #ASOIAF package. Max loves his squeaky toy so much I could barely get it away from him for the picture. I absolutely love everything! You even included Alice. So very thoughtful. ❤️❤️❤️
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked these books. Each one is quite long and I was able to read through them rather quickly. I loved each character and despised each villain, allowing me to become engulfed in the lives from another world. I would definitely recommend these books to someone who doesn't mind violence, sex and dragons ♡
I love how George Martin has the ability to make you empathize with even the most dislikable characters. And how when you first meet a character in the book, you can‘t always tell if they are going to have a big impact on the story later on or not. People often complain that it takes so long for him to write his books, but when you think of all the work that goes into them, it‘s no mystery why! Every little thing is thought out in detail!
I shot straight out of A Game Of Thrones and into A Clash Of Kings without any apprehension due to the length of these novels. I didn‘t give a shit about war strategies and the politics of war until I started reading this series, and it has made me view the two more complexly even in real, present day life. I‘m certainly hooked!
Everything that makes writing effective is employed in Martin‘s books. Diverse and complex characters, beautiful imagery and descriptions, realistic and entertaining dialogue, the pacing was fantastic and even though I had watched most of the first season before reading this book I was still enthralled with it. Shoutout to Shortbread sunbathing! ❤️🐰🐇☀️

I'm currently on a Dance with Dragons in my re-read. It's amazing how many details you miss the first go-round. What's been your favorite re-read?

After reading 400 pages of the first book, I decided I needed to buy the whole set. I watch GOT on HBO. I wish I would have read the books 📚 first. Still the books are addictive! So far they seem to follow the show.
Just got it yesterday as a late birthday gift, my birthday was in August but didn't see my parents since... so I'm superrr excited to start this. I got the whole set and I decide to put all my reading on hold. I'm ready for GoT ❤😍❤
I'm thinking of treating myself and start getting a book box subscription. I'd love some recommendations for adult subscriptions. I'm just a big kid and love all little bookish things, but I want to stay with adult fiction and not YA for the actual books.
As always (well very nearly always) the books are better than the TV series. This whole series is 'high-fantasy' at its finest, by which I mean the fantasy amateur can follow along, but the fantasy enthusiast won't get bored.
