Danger, Will Robinson!

Bad news bears, guys… First of all, I used two catch phrases in two sentences. Yikes.

Secondly, I’m getting seriously addicted this Game of Thrones novel. I’m worried about it because I’m not even halfway through the first book of the series and I can tell it’s going to start sucking up all my free time. I can’t wait to finish book one and start reading the other four books in the series.

Also, we don’t have HBO so I’m anticipating the desperate things I’ll start doing once I’ve finished the books and I’m ready to start in on the TV show.

The problem is that as I write this, all I want to do is finish this damn post, grab the book and a cup of hot tea, and curl up on the couch. Which is fine, except now I’ve got all this free time that I was hoping to spend doing creative and life affirming things! Not to mention that our house is not quite restored from the wedding hangover.

I promise promise promise that this won’t become a Game of Thrones fangirl site. Promise.

It’s just that it’s been so long since Harry Potter gave me a fantastical, media rich world to pretend I live in and I’m sort of reveling in the newness of it!

Have you guys read or watched Game of Thrones? Turns out I’m kind of a Fantasy lover! Anyone else?

  1. I am ! ME! I actually really liked the books as well but I watched the TV show somewhere in the middle of the fourth book and that slowed me down and then I started doing my summer reading and I never finished the fourth book. But, that is on the plan for my winter hermitage, books four and five. It is hard to still be in to when you don't have time to read it though because it is so complex you can't remember what is going on. Anyway, I love fantasy too.

    I guess that's another concern- I'm definitely going to have to finish the whole series in one go because I won't be able to keep track if I set it down for too long!

    This post is exactly why I have been avoiding it! When I get into books, especially a series, all else seems unimportant, good thing we don't have kids yet!

    Oh yeah- my kids would definitely go hungry!

    Oooh! I started to read the book but couldn't stick with it (I know!) BUT that's because I watched the show first and the show is exactly the book. There are no differences. So I guess I didn't enjoy the book as much.

    Reading IS creative and life-affirming, so enjoy yourself! Cleaning and other craft projects will always be there 🙂 Best wishes, another GoT addict.
