Progress Report: Read More

New to the List:

  • A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin
  • This Is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper
  • A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin

Wow, I have to say I had no idea just how addicting the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin would be, but I am completely hooked! I can literally sit down and read the books for hours at a time and it is crazy how much I love some characters and how much I completely despise others. This series is definitely one of my all time favorite series and I would recommend these books to anyone (especially over the TV show – not that the show is bad, but of course the books are a million times better). This Is Where I Leave You was also a very good book, however if you have seen the movie you will find that a lot of the elements and some of the story plots are different and you might not like the book as much if you saw the movie first, but I still highly recommend reading it.

If anyone has suggestions for other great reads let me know 🙂

  1. A Clash of Kings and A Storm of Swords should take up a lot of your reading time, but I also recommend The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss. His books are often found on “Books to Read while Waiting for the Next Game of Thrones Book” lists.
