Month 2: A Storm of Swords

This post is embarrassingly late. What's even worse is I haven't actually finished the book yet.. After all, I am only human, haha. Tried to do some crazy speed reading but a story as good as this deserved better than that. So many things happened in this book and some of those things, well, let's just say I couldn't move on and get on with the story, hahaha. Yes, it's true. It's very personal to me, hahaha. I wish I could really talk about it but I won't because season 2 of Game of Thrones is coming out in 11 days! Yup, I just checked my calendar and literally counted the days, haha (my brain is too tired from working on midterm papers). Having just said that, I highly doubt any of you would want spoilers, haha. But gosh. WHY. just. WHYYYYY. WHYYY. That's all I can say. Haha.  

I've been extremely busy with school and orders (still can't believe that people actually like the things I make that they would actually buy from me, haha!) sooo sadly that means I haven't had a lot of time to read. Sad. No worries though, I'm finishing up this book already. Most of it was read in February sooo it's still my month 2 book! HAHA. 

Since I'll be finishing this up in a few days, I'll read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland right after so I can keep my month 3 goal and get back on track. I have a little list planned out on what to do after that but I don't know if anyone would be interested in it, hahaha. Besides, this post should be about A Storm of Swords, right? If only I could write what it was about, hahaha. Some of the scenes from this book are gonna be in season 2 of GoT so maybe you'll understand what I went through while reading this. Books are just so so dear to me. 

Anyway, I must get back to sewing! Goodnight, everyone! :]

  1. It shocked me and upset my stomach. Fiction doesn't do that to me, so Martin must be writing about real people in a real world somewhere. The stakes are high, for writer and character: this series will be discussed and emulated for decades. Martin has set the bar higher for his own work and for those who follow him, or try to. There are no cartoon Dark Lords or intricate authorial puzzles to negotiate, and no Ring or magic jewel to bring a happy ending. In a world so real you can smell the icy wind and hear ravens quorking, Martin has braided an epic story of ice and fire, blood and guts, love and disgust, honor and treachery, and most of all, right and wrong. Who are the true knights? Who are the true nobles? While mankind squabbles, the eerie Others march from their icy northern wastes, and a zombie horde precedes them. Winter is coming. It's colder than expected.
