Sunday Post #38/ 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 quiet. I did something a little different and deviated from my reading plan, a book was calling to me and I answered. Glad I did too, it was a lot of fun. See my review of Ten by Gretchen McNeil here. So maybe I'm back on track or maybe I'll grab something else- who knows! Also I did a discussion post on Game of Thrones- if you have read the books or watch the show, drop by and share your thoughts. My birthday is Monday and I got a Nook HD+- my first foray into the world of tablets. Actually I think the kids will probably glom it and use it more than I will. Although I will be trying Temple Run.
ACROSS THE BLOGOSPHERE
This week The Huffington Post celebrated the 30th anniversary of The Breakfast Club detention with a gif party. Enjoy!
George RR Martin put out a new sample chapter from The Winds of Winter this week, and the Internet broke. Apparently a server crashed due to demand and his website was unavailable for some time. The sample is here and is called "Mercy". It's an Arya chapter (yay!), and let's just say someone gets theirs.
Speaking of Game of Thrones, io9 is asking if Arya and the Hound will be the break out stars this season? Also the show will most likely run seven seasons so are we more or less at the halfway point, regardless of when Martin actually finishes the books?
