2012 Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire Series) Reading Challenge, Sign up now!

Winter is coming.

Well I guess technically winter is already here in Oregon’s as is it almost everywhere else in the Northern hemisphere….LOL :).

As many of you know I am hosting the Outlander series reading challenge again this year…..and I know I said I was a little over epic book series, but I am totally going to make an exception for this series! I have heard such great things about the Game of Thrones (a Song of Ice and Fire series) and I have had the first 2 books on my shelf at home begging me to read them.

The time has come, I can no longer ignore the books….I must read them!! I am dying to watch the HBO Game of Thrones series as I hear it rivals even that of the books but sadly I have to wait till it comes out on DVD which will probably be sometime in March…which is just enough time for me to read the Song of Ice and Fire series and what better excuse than a reading challenge.

I am hosting a very informal reading challenge for the Song of Ice and Fire series here on my blog this year for those of you who are in want of motivation to read this series. The rules are simple, read the Song of Ice and Fire series…post comments, blog about it, review the series….totally up to you!

  2. I’m going to try to read the first one, although I’m not 100% sure that they’re my cup of tea. If I like the first one, then I’ll definitely keep going though!

    • Yeah!! Welcome, same here! I have been dying to read the series but I know feel like once I start the series I won’t be able to put it down so I’m a little hesitant to start it but now I have the perfect excuse 🙂

    Whoops, I’ve started reponding to questions without signing up. Actually read four and halfway through fifth, but I planned to refresh my memory and reread them since it’s been over six years since “A Feast for Crows”. Looking forward to the discussions.
