Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire #1)

A Game of Thrones  - George R.R. Martin I'm a total late-comer to this series and only picked it up because of enjoying the television series, but now I'm hooked! I was also very pleased and surprised to realize that there are even more powerful female characters than are shown in the television series - there are quite a few female "knights" and various other "warrior women." There is also far less sex than HBO would have you believe. I can't wait to dive into the next book in this saga!
