    Yeah I'm looking forward to Pratchett. I leafed through one of his books in the library a week ago and it looked like a very fun read. Hunger Games have to come first, though. They're supposed to be spectacular.

    Fire and Ice has had many great and memorable moments, my favorite being the Battle on the Blackwater. Season 2 of the show will REALLY make that part shine.
    The fifth book is a strange read. It's good, just strange. A lot of the edge is lost on the fact that the series is so long, I'm sad to say I've lost interest somewhat. Doesn't matter, I fully intend to press on through the last few hundred pages and be done with it. Highlight below to read the spoiler-free rant.
    It covers the same time frame as the fourth book, but I found the fourth book to be extremely boring. The whole time I'm reading it all I can think is "why in gods name didn't you put some of this into the LAST book???" I haven't hit a boring chapter yet in Dragons and Feast for Crows was almost ALL boring chapters. It was 99% characters I just don't care about. I don't give a **** about Brienne of Tarth, Cersei Lannister and Samwell Tarley. Well, Cersei makes a great villain but in the first person she loses so much of her edge to the reader. Once you get to see how her mind works a lot of her cunning can just be chalked up to presumptuous, rash, arrogant, and stupid. I liked it better when I was reading from another characters perspective who loathed her to the very core. With those characters gone, you're left with only 50% of the book and there's something seriously wrong with that..

    I really can't wait for Season 2! I'm surprised how well they did the series.
    Please, no Brienne POV's! I liked her when she was seen from Jamie's POV but she seems too, well, boring and single minded to have it written from her perspective.
    I always wondered why they never did one from Robb's POV?


    Started The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett. I swear he was taking the same stuff as Lewis Carol. :confused:

    Van Helsing novel based on the movie. It's...a little too close to the movie for my taste, but it's okay.

    Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, An Atheists Guide to Christmas by.. lots of people, and The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I tend to leave books in different rooms and read different books depending what room I’m in :/

    It's convenient, 'cos after do the house work or summing and make a cuppa and relax on the sofa, I then realise my book is in my bedroom! If I just leave a book in every room, it solves the problem. Though I do get the stories confused if I read 2 with similar themes :confused:



    I've had 5 of the NW series on my book shelf for years and haven’t read them. First it was because it took me AGES to collect them in the UK (before LJS comeback) and now that they available everywhere, well, I'm not buying the new generic covers 'cos they're pants and I'm fussy and have to have all the covers matching ^_^ Which is gonna cost me more and I have to do a bit more searching for the old covers.
    I have decided to start them in the New Year though. I was thinking about waiting for Strange Fate but that may be a long time coming :/
