- A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms by George RR Martin
I realised today that I’ve been reading this fucking book for nearly a month now. I started it just after I finished reading Jaws and I’ve only just finished reading the second of the three stories. I don’t know whether it’s the book or me. I’m thinking about taking a break and going back to it at some point but if I do that I’ll probably never finish the damn thing. I’m off work this week so I’ll see how I go. If we get nice weather then I’ll probably bosh it off in no time.
- Fate and Furies by Lauren Groff (Kindle Edition)
Wanted to own this for ages and have come so close to buying the beautiful paperback on so many occasions. It was only after seeing it on offer in the Kindle store that I decided to. No doubt I’ll still buy the actual book because I’m a fucking loser like that. Did I mention that I’ve got every possible format of Ishiguro’s The Buried Giant. And have I finished it yet? Have I fuck! Anyway, Fates and Furies tells the story of a picture perfect marriage that isn’t quite so idyllic on the inside. It’s about the two sides to every story and the lies that make up every relationship.
- So Much for That Winter by Dorthe Nors
I’ve read so much about this book recently and I have desperately wanted it from that point on. The book contains two novellas and much has been made about the style of Nors’ writing. She utlisises the lists that we all make on a daily basis to tell her stories. It sounds amazing and I couldn’t be more excited about reading it.
- Game of Thrones
Still re-watching an still amzaing. I’m midway through season 2 and all I can do is squeal whenever Brienne comes on screen. I fucking love her so much. Also, I have so much more love for Margaery Tyrell after the finale. She was fucking gorgeous but I was never that attached to her. Now she’s dead I’m realising how great she was. Still, maybe there’s a secret way to resist Wildfire that I just don’t know about yet?
Literally just started watching this new Netflix series. It sounds fucking awesome but it’s still too early to tell. I’m so bad at getting around to watching Netflix originals if I’m honest. I need to get up-to-date with House of Cards and then I need to start Jessica Jones, Daredevil and god knows what else. I still haven’t finished Love but I think that’s because I started to realise it’s unconventional rom-com element wasn’t as original or as exciting as I wanted it to be.
