Been wondering why I’ve been so lazy and haven’t posted anything in weeks?
I’ve been reading George R. R. Martin.
But I need a break.
It happened some time when I was halfway through A Storm of Swords (3rd book in the series). I just got really depressed. And then, the chapters after the incident that depressed me, were really dark… and I began to realize how freakin’ dark this series is. I mean, sure, it’s the medieval ages, but gahhh. Everytime it’s sit-around-the-fire-and-share-a-story time, someone will offer a story or song that involves someone being raped, or burned/mutilated or tortured or committing suicide. So sad. So depressing. If people are holding hands and singing and dreaming beautiful dreams, I’m sure something bad will happen to them by the end of that chapter.
I started to skip pages here and there because I was searching for a nice warm cozy nookish place. But it does not exist!! When I told my friends this, they were aghast and very disappointed in me for having this attitude toward George R.R. Martin. They vowed they would never speak to me again about discussing George R. R. Martin.
I’m sure I’ll get over it and continue reading the series. But for now, I received a package from Lovkyne from nom nom tasty books (don’t you love that blog name?) She sent me Nomansland byLesley Hauge. I will read that one first and let you know how it goes!
Must. Post. This.
Also, stole this from See Michelle Reads. Don’t read it if you plan on reading or watching Harry Potter books or movies. (TSK. to you for depriving yourself, though)
This woman is awesome!! I once did something similar for Shakespeare works for an English project. I wonder…
PS – And did you know that Emma Watson might play Beauty in a film version of Beauty and the Beast? Interesting…
