  1. Yesterday (the 2nd of March) it was World Book Day. While the Netherlands doesn't really participate in this as we have our own 'book weeks', I coincidentally found myself reading a lot yesterday. I read 5 children's books (they were pretty short and had a big font, they were quite enjoyable) by Paul van Loon (a Dutch author). Did you do anything special for or because of World Book Day?
  2. A Game of Thrones

    [Admin edit: I know there are threads for the author (which is obviously mainly about the books) but I thought a fresh GofT thread would be a good idea, so with the poster's permission, I've moved it here. Michelle] Hiya! I began my challenge on January 1st and decided to start with the much talked about Game of Thrones series. The prompt I am trying to complete is 'First book in a series I haven't read before'. To be honest, I began watching the series and my heart wasn't in it very much so I judged the books based on the show. I was so wrong. Never Judge a Book By It's Movie - J.W Eagan I began reading the first book on January 1st, 2017 & I was hooked before I even finished the prologue. The writing was spot on, the characters were outlined in so much detail and the intensity of how much I fell in love with the world of Westeros and the Free Cities was unreal! The first couple of chapters in which each character is outlined with so much detail has me already hating Cersei of House Baratheon (Lannister - let's be real she's evil) and loving Catelyn of House Stark. I adore Jon Snow and the dire wolves - I mean can I adopt one please? I know that I am so late on the Game of Thrones bandwagon but it has definitely gained a new fangirl. In short, I am absolutely hooked by Game of Thrones and I am considering giving the show another shot now that I have a new found love for the series. I am aiming to finish this book by the end of the weekend and therefore finish my first challenge for POPSUGAR's 2017 reading challenge. 51 more to go!! The weather in UK is muggy and rainy and horrible but it's the perfect weather to cuddle up to the fireplace with a good book. I've definitely found my book....what's your current read? Comment below. Speed reading lovelies. xoxo
