Sunday Post #43/ It's Monday. What Are You Reading?
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
This week was pretty good, I got a couple reviews up and got some reading done. It's been cold and rainy all week but today the sun is out and looks like a good day.
So how was your week?
AROUND THE BLOGOSPHERE:
The cast of Star Wars Episode VII has been announced. Speaking of which, Sunday is Star Wars Day and in celebration of that, check out these SW posters. I want that first one...
Anybody want a drink? Winter is Coming has a Cocktails of Westeros series. How about a Bloody Melisandre? I want a (guy) version of that shirt, too...
Game of Thrones Themed Cocktails Recipes... by winteriscoming
There's a cool new game coming called 20,000 Leagues Above The Clouds. They describe it as Baldur's Gate meets Pirates!, with steampunk. I want to play this!
Robert Downey Jr. tweeted this image of the cast of Avengers 2 having dinner.
There's been so much discussion over the last few weeks about the Game of Thrones show and the changes they are making to the story. Also the last episode contained what is very possibly a spoiler for books that have not even been released yet. So here is a roundup...
Vikings creator calls GoT "soft porn" at the Mary Sue. Worth a read. The comments especially...
Many of us love GoT but do ever kind of think it's a little @#$%^'ed up? This post makes a pretty good point about how it's a bit much at times, especially regarding the kids' ages (they've all been aged up in the show). It's pretty critical but I have a hard time disagreeing with a lot of it.
I saw a comment somewhere where they basically said up til now it's always been a question of how they would interpret the books. Now we're at a point where potentially any episode could spoil FUTURE books- so heads up!
