For those who haven’t watched Game of throne drama series and are wondering how the book is, let me warn you before hand – if you open that book, be prepared for constant bouts of extreme restlessness, agony, heart break and shock!! The book takes over you, all you can think of is how you can never be as brave as Arya Stark, and how stupid yet gentle Sansa is. It’s a maze, a world of its own, and once you enter, there’s no looking back. I have been totally consumed by its story, characters, Winterfell, Dragons and Seven Kingdoms. The storyline is fast paced and there are so many characters that it’s natural to lose track of them. I am done with the first one. The others are waiting for me, eagerly, with their sleep-killing monstrous swords. This book is not for the faint hearted.
Goodreads have published the list of Best Books of 2014. Are you as excited as I am?
I am often lost in a bookstore as to what to read and what not. My biggest fear is to buy a book that doesn’t appeal to me. It’s even worse than buying non fitting shoes. Atleast you can fix a bad shoe.
Don't you simply love a book that effortlessly transports you to a different world? My favorite is still Hitchiker's guide to the Galaxy series, followed closely by Millenium Trilogy. These are the books that gave me that aweful feeling of emptiness once I finished reading them. It's hard to describe hard meaningless everything seems when you realize that reality isn't as exciting as space travel.
Are you taking part in 2015 Reading Challenge?
Until recently I considered myself a bookworm, but when Corrine said her aim is 200, I was left gasping for breath. The way Shilpa writes book reviews one after the another and Naba finishes her reading list, I come off as a simple bookworm wannabe. Harini's list on Goodreads makes me marvel at her extreme devotion to books.
