Before the Breaker of Chains
Usually I lurk online after a new episode has aired in the USA to read the reactions from fans at Winter is Coming, which leads to me having a rather good idea of what to expect from the episode, usually knowing the exact scenes and the order in which they come. Watching last week's 4.2: The Lion and the Rose I felt like I had already seen it before. Not this week! I saw the preview clip last Monday so I've forgotten most of it, and so I am looking forward to today's episode without knowing too much of what is going to happen (though, obviously, I am pretty sure we'll see Tyrion in a bad place; and Cersei in a different kind of bad place).
Last night I was going to continue my read of King of Thorns, but due to me digging up that link to The Fifth Sorceress (see this post) I ended up reading reviews of said masterpiece until I fell asleep. Not a good way to spend your precious geektime! Well, it was entertaining to a degree, but...bah. Internet makes it so incredibly easy to waste time. And people thought TVs were bad. Who's got time for TV these days anyway? [Unless it's Game of Thrones, of course].
And then it was too late to read King of Thorns, because it's a physical book which needs light and people were sleeping all around me, so I decided to start another waiting novel on my Kindle instead. One I've had for eons as well. C.J. Sansom's Sovereign. Well, not eons, but I did order it January the 28th, 2011. So it is about time I actually read it. Another book bought because of Martin with his making-me-like-medieval-stuff-stuff. And so it goes! King of Thorns moved down the queue, Sovereign up. Quite entertaining so far as well.
