… and no, I’m not reading the book. Just wanted to make a quick post on why I haven’t been reading the past few days. I’ve been busy watching HBO’s Game of Thrones TV series. I’m so glad I decided to wait until all the episodes are out before I started this because I got to watch all of them in a span of days. Special mention to Aaron of Guy Gone Geek who’s been pressuring me to watch the show the past couple of months. I finally got around to it!
You might be wondering why I’m not planning to read the series. As much as I love epic fantasy, I don’t think I can handle George R.R. Martin’s writing. For me, a good book lets me become invested in the characters and Martin kills off way too many of them for my liking. This image, which I got from Meann of The Girl Who Read and Other Stories, sums it up quite nicely:
So, any other fans of the series out there? Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments.
