Musing Monday: June 2nd

Posted June 2, 2014 in Books / Leave a comment!

mmMusing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

My Musing:

This is a new book meme that I decided to take part of. Just because it’s a post that’s book related but not a review. This week I’m going to talk about my currently reading. Right now, I’m reading A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin. It’s the third book in the Song of Ice and Fire (or Game of Thrones) series.

This is the summary on GoodReads:

Of the five contenders for power, one is dead, another in disfavor, and still the wars rage as alliances are made and broken. Joffrey sits on the Iron Throne, the uneasy ruler of of the Seven Kingdoms. His most bitter rival, Lord Stannis, stands defeated and disgraced, victim of the sorceress who holds him in her thrall. Young Robb still rules the North from the fortress of Riverrun. Meanwhile, making her way across a blood-drenched continent is the exiled queen, Daenerys, mistress of the only three dragons still left in the world. And as opposing forces maneuver for the final showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost limits of civilization, accompanied by a horde of mythical Others—a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords.

I’m almost done the boo so you’ll probably see a review up in the next month. Does anyone watch the tv show? I’m at about the same spot in the book. What do you guys think of this series?

  1. Man! these books have been on my to-read stack for so long. I haven’t watched the television show yet because I wanted to read the books first. Clearly I’m a little behind. I’ll go check out your reviews of the first three!
