My Obsession

Hands off ladies he's all mine!
I have a serious, serious obsession.  It's with George RR Martin's epic saga A Song of Ice and Fire.  I can't get enough of it.  I watched Game of Thrones on HBO and something (I won't give any spoilers) happened that had my hoisting my jaw off the floor and so I googled to make sure that what I saw actually happened and it wasn't a flashback of a bad ecstasy hit that I took in 1999.  It wasn't.  Then I realized that this amazing show was based on a book and not just one book...a bunch of books...long books.

So I went to download them on my NOOK, but surprisingly for the 4 books that were out at the time it cost $35 to download and only $20 to order, which is weird, so I ordered them and devoured them.  A Game of Thrones, A Storm of Swords, A Clash of Kings, A Feast for Crows, and the newest one A Dance of Dragons.

I'd gladly forfeit my other guilty pleasures, The Jersey Shore, Real Housewives, etc, to get lost in the seven kingdoms.  I love books like these that really just wrap you up and take you along for the ride.  And now I am completely obsessed with Sean Bean.  So if any of you know him can you please make him call me so I can tell him that I am completely obsessed with him in the least creepy way possible.

Oh and no one is paying me to say this shit.  I'm just really into it right now and I'm hoping to spread my obsession to as many people as possible.

I was skeptical of the show - and was irrevocably sucked in! And shocked by the turn of events! You sold me: I must read these.
