After finishing this (finally!) I wrote a short review for the fifth book in George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire-series, over on goodreads. Figured I'd post it here, because feelings:

There's this tiny little spider on my bathroom wall. I've named him Bernard. I'm letting him stay until the inevitable time when he sees me naked and will have to move out from the sudden awkwardness and conflicting feelings between us.

But this post is mainly just to warn you that, at least for a while, this is going to turn into a massive review-blog. I've still to do a picspam of the remaining seven episode of Game of Thrones season one (not sure if I'm going to do S2 yet) and I've decided, because Being Human is causing me so much pain with the end of season 2, that I am going to post a review of every episode of season 3 as they come. I don't know when I'm continuing with Supernatural season 6, but there will definitely be lots of Cas-ramblings when I get to that. And I still haven't started watching Firefly which I said I would, but never got around to because I've been very unproductive this summer and then BH turned into a complete sobfest. And then of course there are new seasons of Doctor Who and Downton Abbey coming soon. Does anyone know when the next season of The Big Bang Theory will be arriving? Is it September?

On books: I wanted to post a review of  A Feast for Crows, but seeing as I finished it right before Mallorca and then forgot to write down my thoughts, I think it would end up being too incoherent to post. Once I'm done with A Dance with Dragons I do think I will need therapy though, as this is the first time I will have to wait for a new book to arrive (yes, its so hard for us newer fans, I know ;P) Also, I have let myself be persuaded into reading True Blood. Yeah. That was a weird sentence to me as well. It's just that the show has so many amazing actors and then my English teacher, who has excellent taste in books, said she'd picked them up and quite liked them. I am conflicted! I don't want to be caught in another Twilight-nightmare, but I do want something a little less angsty than ASOIAF and a little less heavy than historical volumes to read.

Also my school is starting again for me the 13th and certain new incidents have made me even more uncertain about a lot of things, including education, so sorry for the possible coming angst-fest that might occur in the future. Right. Peace out ♥

I've recently started reading the first book in George R. R. Martin's series, and I was wondering, for anyone who has both read the books and watched the television series, what is the timeline for the two to mesh up? I mean, does the first season follow the first book, or is there less of a pattern? I'm just wondering, as I would rather have read the events in the books, before watching them on-screen, but since flawless cast is flawless I would like to see if I can start with the series as soon as I have finished the first book (which, judging from my reading speed is soon, god I love it so much I can't put it down...!)

Yesterday I got a virtual gift from an anonymous sender, in the form of Jelly Beans (yay!) with this message:

'thank you for all the lovely Guy/Marian and Hunger Games fic! I love it when you update!'

And I'd just like to say thank-you for those lovely words: they really made me happy and it's always great to know that people are reading and enjoying my stories :) even if you do have me going crazy with figuring out who you are, mysterious-gift-sender!
 


To move unto something else: I have a challenge for you! I want you to list all the books you've read or re-read in 2011 and give them stars from 1 - 5, with perhaps a small comment as to wethever or not it's worth reading. This is spurred on by goodreads similar challenge, in where I've set myself a goal of books I need to read before the year ends and while I haven't run out of books to read yet (I'm currently plowing through 'The Historian' by Elizabeth Kostova, followed by about 80% of Anne Rice's works...) I'd still love to see what everybody else is glued to for the moment. So, anyone up for it? Just post a comment and either write your list here or at your own journal.

I wrote this a couple of weeks ago: it is also on my ff.net account. It came to me after reading the last pages of book tree way too many times. And because I have a very soft spot for Luke (and Thalia)

Title: This Side of Paradise
Summary: 'The reality of them dying always pulls him back and Luke knows what he must do, what he will always do to keep them safe.' Oneshot, focusing on the hero turned traitor. Luke/Thalia
Disclaimer: All hail Rick Riordan!

 

Luke thinks that he used to be free... )
