It’s finally TIME!! Game of Thrones Season 2! How excited am I ? Very! Just look at my head on the stake above, I couldn't help but smile thinking about the show and of course  my favorite character : Lord Snow. One of the things I noticed reading Book 1 in the series is how faithful the HBO show was in their adaptation of the book.

 

So this season I thought I would read the book Clash of Kings in conjunction with the show, week by week. So today I’m starting to read book 2. I will read about a hundred pages a week which will let me finish the book around the season finale.

 

I really enjoyed last nights episode “ The North Remembers”. What really stood out to me though was Bran. I’m intrigued that he seems to be having prophetic dreams. I’m also impressed with the character of Rob. And the Direwolves! They look amazing this year! I read that they are using real wolves along with CGI enhancements. There was a lot of buildup this episode but I’m enjoying learning about the 5 factions vying for the Throne.

So what do you guys think of the show? Are you addicted like me? :)

 

Would love to here your thoughts!

 

Come back next week for my reading updates and thoughts on the latest episode.

I'm doing the same thing! I figured I would watch the episode and then read until I got to that part in the book (roughly).

I'll probably be a week behind everyone. It usually takes me a week to get to my shows.
