Newest Obsession: Game of Thrones

Just a brief look at my current crack: HBO TV series Game of Thrones based on the book series Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. There are seven freakin' books! I love the supernatural/medieval bits in it but is all the nudity really necessary?? True Blood is practically conservative next to this TV show.

Characters I adore! Honestly, half the time I don't know why I adore them, I just do!

L-R: Cute little Bran Stark, the bastard son Jon Snow, the dancing teacher Syrio Forel, the sweet and fearsome Daenerys Targayen and the feisty little Arya Stark.

Honorable Mentions: Eddard Stark, the wilding lady caught by the Starks, Samwell Tarly

Characters I loathe/absolutely do not like no matter how much you try to rationalize their actions to me:

L-R: Lena Headey as Queen Cersei, Lysa Tully and her wretched son, Sansa Stark, Joffrey Lannister and his trusty bloodthirsty sidekick, The Hound.

Honorable Mentions: That Whatsisface Commander at The Wall, Petyr Daenish, random witch lady

A heavily censored version of Game of Thrones should be airing on HBO on Astro at the moment! You will probably find that infinitely better watching. If a few pieces of information escape you, you can try buying the book like me though I have no idea where to find the sequels in Kota Kinabalu as bookstores like Popular, Harris and Times only seem to stock new books that are high in demand.

2 more episodes to go till I can put down my thoughts of the show in a proper review!

download the ebooks~ :p i have them if you can find a software that can read epub files. :)

btw, the books for a song of ice and fire is up to book 5 (which took george r.r. martin 5 years to write). books 6 and 7 are not out yet...and they're kinda old... so i think you'll be able to find them in popular or harris. :D

Yeah, I saw them! They're these huge books I always pass over because they're, well, HUGE! But now that the series seems so interesting, I'll try to give it a go. I don't like reading ebooks. I always forget my page and get distracted because I don't like staring at a computer screen that long...
