Game of Thrones Take 2
I feel like I am behind in the times and the majority of the people in the world have already read this series but I am still going to give my two cents. In the story, the Seven Kingdoms is being ruled by Robert Baratheon. His recent Hand of the King was found dead (or murdered you say?) and he decided to travel north to Winterfell (a place where the motto is "Winter is coming") to convince Lord Eddard Stark to become his new Hand. Eddard (Ned) reluctantly agrees to become Hand and make the journey to King's Landing with some of his children. That's just the beginning, don't want to give away too much information ;) The story is full of twists and turns and characters you love, hate, and love to hate. My favorite just so happens to be the imp, Tyrion Lannister (played by Peter Dinklage, who I think does a FANTASTIC job).
I am definitely excited to move on to the next books in the series. This time, however, I think I will get them on my nook instead of carrying around a heavy book everywhere I go. Although I am a creature of habit and if I buy the first series of a book in paperback then I continue to buy it in paperback, but if I buy it on my nook it is a whole different story. I am about ready to fly to Boston though so my nook would be an excellent companion, along with A Clash of Kings. I guess only time will tell because I have already moved on to my next read. What is it you ask? You'll just have to wait and find out ;)
