On the bookshelf: Too many books too little time



Very fantasy-heavy, I just realised.

(From top to bottom)

1. Seventh Son (Orson Scott Card)
2. A Game of Thrones (George R.R. Martin)
3. The Joy of Living (Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche)
4. Water for Elephants (Sara Gruen)
5. Eldest (Book 2 of Inheritance trilogy, Christopher Paolini)
6. Brisingr (Book 3 of Inheritance trilogy, Christopher Paolini)

I'm currently at the end of GOT (A Game of Thrones) and I seriously love the book! Haven't watched the HBO series yet and Season 2 had premiered a few days ago. The J-man watched the whole of Season 1, which is in essence, the first book, and we were comparing notes about the differences between the two. So far the TV series has been pretty faithful to the novel! *rubs eyes in disbelief* seeing how they butchered The Sookie Stackhouse series a.k.a. Trueblood.

I rub my hands in anticipation of Book 2, 3, 4 and 5! I think there's more to come. Why do the books have to be so LONG! I'm such a slow reader!

And not to forget all that Hunger Games hype! Hands up if you haven't watched the movie! *gulps* Is mine the only arm raised?? I have to get my hands on Book 2 and 3!!!

I started on the Seventh Son, because for a while I was in a readless-lull. But halfway through, my friends recommended GOT so i had no choice but to shelve it. Will get back to you Mr. Card! I did like it very much, and unfortunately, it is yet another first of a series! GAAAAHHH!

But I'm getting my reading momentum back (which typically means a crafting dry spell...NOOOOO)

What is on your reading list? Hope you can share some enjoyable reads!



  1. Hubs is really into Game of Thrones the TV show. As for me, I just started reading Harry Potter. Hahahaha. I know. Very slow.

  2. I just bought the first GOT at a used bookstore and I can't bring myself to start it because it's such a committment!

    Read Water for Elephants a few summers ago. Loved.

  3. I loved the book Water for Elephants and I about about to start the walking Dead series. I am thinking I am going to have to read Game of Thrones and don't feel bad my hand is raised too, but I really, really, really want to see Hunger Games!
    You have a great collection of books, most of mine are on my Kindle now and I have mixed emotions about that! But I do love my kindle!
    Have a great week Punky!
