Bought this for myself at the end of last year but have been putting off reading it as its just sooo big! But tonight i finished my goodreads challenge so decided now would be the perfect time to tackle this in between challenges!

Velvetfur Oh, me too, it's just sitting there on the pile and I keep looking at it thinking, "what do we say to the god of chunksters? Not today!" ? 1mo
cerijones Haha yeah i have finally bit the bullet now and started it. Thought it was good timing really since ive achieved my goodreads goal for this year so this one will either take me over my goal or be the first one ticked off next years goal depending on how much time i get to read over the next few week haha! 1mo

I have decidedly mixed feelings about HBO's recent announcement that they have ordered a full season for the prequel of one of their most #iconic shows, & axed the rumored prequel starring Naomi Watts. The version featuring Watts was based on original material & set a thousand years before the events of ASoIaF, very promising concept & I was excited to see Watts in this world. HBO has decided to go with "House of the Dragon," based on the tagged?

vivastory book. This one is set 300 years before the events of GoT & there's a second planned volume. I like the idea of being able to read the book before the show is released, & I'm sure inevitably waiting for years for the second volume. #MOvember @Cinfhen 1mo
Cinfhen Great choice!! Lots of “fans” are on the fence about the producers choice of scrapping original plans and what the hell happened to the Star Wars prequel?? 1mo
vivastory @Cinfhen I'm definitely in the unpopular opinion camp on this one, but I don't think the final season of GoT is as bad as pretty much everyone on the internet is claiming. Even if people are unhappy with the last few episodes, there's no disputing that audiences were happy with the first half of the season & it contained at least one of the best episodes of any tv series, ever. I suspect the cancelled Benioff & Weiss deal might have more to do 👇 1mo

vivastory @Cinfhen with the fact that they signed a major deal with Netflix & now that Disney is about to launch their streaming service I think it's a competition thing more than anything else IMO 1mo
Cinfhen Yeah, that seems to add up!! 1mo
Hooked_on_books I strongly suspect Martin will die before at least one of his series is concluded. Or is it just the one series and the others are related stand alones? 1mo
vivastory @Hooked_on_books The Fire & Blood series is supposedly only going to have 1 other volume. He has another in the same world that he's said that he might add onto at some point, but you can safely read it now & it stands on its own 1mo
vivastory @Hooked_on_books He has said that he won't be involved with the prequel to the extent that he was with GoT, so he can focus on finishing Winds of Winter 1mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai I'd prefer the Naomi Watts one too. 1mo

Rating: 10/5 stars.

George RR Martin is one of a kind. This book is extensive and really, really good. I'm of House Stark and Martell, but I do have a favorite Targaryen: Visenya.

Ignored most of the things I "had" to do today, (except some light vacuuming, cooking dinner, feeding the baby and keeping the other 2 kids from killing each other #momlife ), and relaxed to get some reading done. Got a few chapters of Fire & Blood read and now going to do a little bedtime reading of Harry Potter. Good reading day!

azulaco Lol #momlife indeed. I‘m impressed you got to read at all during the day. My two make it nearly impossible! 2mo
azulaco PS I love the Harry Potter series so much. I read them all as an adult, but before I had kids. In fact, I then went out and bought the whole set to keep in my permanent library. They are really well done - and, once you read them, you will appreciate how well the movies are done, too. 2mo
Mama_Wolf2015 @azulaco it was definitely an anomaly to be able to read, but the kids played on their own and I snuck in some reading. Plus the husband was home, so he played with them a bit. And I ignores most all my to do list 🤣 sometimes ya just need some extra reading time! I've never even seen the Harry Potter movies, I plan on watching after I finish reading! 2mo

Book 9: I watched the only season of the series based on this book. The basic story is the same: on the way to intercept an alien ship, the crew of The Nightflyer experience strange things. Gory deaths occur. The story isn‘t substantial enough for multiple seasons—the important plot points were covered in one. The characters are very different, but are more fleshed out and interesting in the series. It‘s good, but not his best. #30booksin30days
