Game of Thrones: A Dance with Dragons


It’s a miracle. Well, okay maybe not a miracle exactly but I have finished reading “Game of Thrones: A Dance with Dragons.” It’s a minor accomplishment at any rate.

Last week, I was off work due to my knee injury. So it seemed like a good time to finish the book.

I put off some blog posts in order to read for a few minutes. A few minutes usually turns into a few hours but I had nothing but time last week.

I  read until the words didn’t make any sense on the page and subsequently fell asleep. So I tried to bookmark it until the next day. It’s possible that I missed the right page once or twice.

Anyway . . . I’ll be over here waiting for book six in the series. The word is that we will all be waiting an undetermined amount of time. So there will be plenty of time to catch up on the television series, right?!

P.S. Game of Thrones just favorited my tweet. Another minor accomplishment in the bag today. 🙂

Daenerys Targaryen, Mother of Dragons: A to Z Challenge, D

Daenerys Targaryen, Mother of Dragons: A to Z Challenge, D

Daenerys Targaryen is quite possibly my favorite character in “Game of Thrones.” At first, I thought she was weak. She seemed like a nice girl and all but she did whatever she was told. So who knew if she had a backbone? Shame on her brother for being a bully. She defended him for awhile, until he bullied her one too many times.
She got married to Khal Drogo and eventually gained some confidence. Daenerys had some major setbacks. She overcame situations that seemed impossible. Now, she is the Mother of Dragons. Daenarys has become a force to be reckoned with, even without the dragons.

I found this gorgeous print at the following link. It’s for sale. You should buy one. 🙂
