Game of Thrones!

Last year I was introduced to and fell in love with an HBO series called Game of Thrones.  Each episode was enthralling and left me wanting more.  It satisfied my love for historical fiction, fantasy and sexy drama even if it was set in a time and place created by George R.R. Martin.  I learned that it was based on a book series called “Song of Ice and Fire” and the first season was based on the first book.  After the exciting cliffhanger of the first season, I was too eager and curious for more so I started reading the series.

It was nice because HBO stayed true to the books so my transition from watching to reading was quite seamless.  I couldn’t stop reading these long and involved books with tons of characters and numerous story lines to follow.  To my advantage, I didn’t have to wait for each subsequent book in the series since they weren’t new, only new to me.  I went through 4 of the books and was totally immersed in Martin’s world.  Now, I’m on the 5th and suddenly my pace has slowed.  Through no fault of the book’s, I suddenly felt drained and overwhelmed.  Maybe it was the nonstop reading of thousands of pages or information overload.  In any case, I took a break from it and read two other good but shorter books and now I’m back with it.  I guess sometimes it’s true, if you love something let it go…..  Well, our relationship survived!
