A Game Of Thrones - Book Two & Three - Book Review

This book review that I am writing is way overdue but better late than never. Like most of you I have been drawn to the HBO series “A Game Of Thrones” and yes I quite enjoy it that it got me started with reading the books as well. Click on the link below for my book review for the first book :

The Second book “A Clash of Kings” is full of twist and turns readers will always end up for a surprise. The second season for the “Game of Thrones” has been out already and the book is much better considering imaginations are better than the sets they made for the series. My favourite character for book two would have to be Daenery for everything and everyone is against her but she still battles on for her right to the Iron Throne. I think she feels herself lucky considering she bore the dragons. Other Kings from north to south, east and west are battling each other not realising that their worst enemy from the land of Westeros is raising her children who can breathe fire ready to fight a battle which will eventually burn everything and everyone. I give Book Two – a five out of five stars!

The Third book “A Storm of Swords” left me quite disappointed, which is my personal opinion. There are still interesting and unexpected twists but I felt that the author George R.R. Martin got tired with what to add into the middle of the book and just .... “blabber” so to speak. It got tedious to a certain extent but then I have to push myself to finish the book as there is no point not finishing the third book considering I already read the other two books which were a good read! Still the end of book three will leave readers A SHOCK!!! I give book three a three out of five stars.

Enjoy the indulgence of reading a book for not a lot us now have the luxury to do so.

Parisian Chic

Once upon a time I wanted to be a fashion blogger. Now it really sounds a bit trivial for me anyway. I have been following fashion bloggers quite recently and the young has so much vigor in them, so much creativity it is inspiring. With that said I am not turning my pages and be a fashion blogger once again I did that before and I think it is not meant for moi. I'll stick to books...for now. I guess age and maturity has taught me little tricks of the fashion world and I want to share them with anyone who might be stopping by to read my blog.

This is my style philosophy. C'est Si Bon xxx
