I have been miserly rationing out my reading of George R.R. Martin’s books, eking out my pleasure one wee short story at a time, biding my time till his next major oeuvre – The Winds of Winter. Seriously, I’ve become this total Westerosi junkie needing my fix of all these fantastic stories and settings that George R.R.Martin manages to conjure up for me. He is the best writer ever when it comes to hooking his audience, and this is coming from me, someone who is not at all prone to hyperbole.
I am really loving all this back story into the Targaryen family that I am getting reading these various prequels to A Song of Ice and Fire. Dangerous Women that I read last year was fantastic, dramatic, and bloodthirsty all at the same time.
I read this anthology of short stories curated by George R.R.Martin leisurely over the past three months dipping in and out of it occasionally in between longer reads.
As such I wasn’t too interested in the anthology.
Today, the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list our ten fall reads.
This is a bit embarrassing. I had one long list of books that I mean to read in the next 2-3 months when I realized that I had created a similar TBR list for this summer. When I went back to check on the progress of my TBR list, I saw there was just one book that I actually touched from that list – Dangerous Women by George R.R. Martin, which I am dipping in and out of this past couple of weeks.
The rest of the books are sitting untouched gathering dust on my shelf.
This book is a collection of short stories from many writers in sci-fi and fantasy genres. Here is a teaser from The Princess and the Queen by George R.R. Martin: The attack came sudden as a thunderbolt. Caraxes dove down upon Vhagar with a piercing shriek that was heard a dozen miles away, cloaked by the ...
Today, the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list top ten books that feature diverse characters.
When I first saw the topic for this week, I thought I’d totally nailed it, and that I would be able to finish this tag within minutes. However, I was quite dismayed when I saw the final list. It doesn’t seem as diverse as I thought.
Today, the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list our ten summer reads. Ignoring the fact that summer is hopefully over in this part of the world, and that we seem well into the monsoons, I hereby list the ten books that I hope to read in the next three ...
Maggie from The Novel Orange did a really fun tag last week that I thought was fun, and most important easy and quick to do :) . Since it's been ages since I did one of these tag posts, I thought I'd do this one :) Four Things People Call Me Other Than My Real Name ...
Today, the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list the ten books that we’d class as our all time favorite books within the last 3-5 years. This could be pretty hard, or extremely easy, let’s see.
Turned out, it was easier than I thought. While scanning my reading list page where I jot down all the books I’ve read, certain books just leaped out at me, those books that were so so good that I just couldn’t put them down, that I remember even after quite some time has passed.
Today, the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list ten authors we own the most books of. I don't own a big library. I read, lend, borrow, sell, I don't see the point of having tons of books in my house which I've already read, and don't plan on reading again. So ...
