I am so glad that The Book Chat is back! I definitely enjoy the weekly topics and checking out other posts.
This week we are catching up with what we have been reading. Currently, I am reading the second installment of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, A Clash of Kings.
I totally jumped on the Game of Thrones bandwagon over this summer, and tore through all 3 seasons, on dvd. Like many people, I became obsessed with the show and clamored to see what would happen next. Even through the gasps, shouts and tears shed (those who have seen the last season know when I cried), I still am invested in the characters and story line, and NEED to know what happens.
I bought the first four books and planned to read them as I watched the series. You guys, I have to be honest, I am having a hard time getting through this book.
I am not sure if it is because I already know what happens (since I watched the second season), but I cannot seem to get through this book as fast as I thought I would. I am about 200 pages in, and am just not excited about reading it.
This seems like a cop out excuse, but I think part of the reason is because of how fat it is, and difficult to hold. I typically read in bed, and after a while, this book starts hurting my hand, and I just give up and go to sleep.
I am tempted to give up on it, and jump to book 4, because I want to know what happens next.
What would you do? Do you ever give up on books?
