Just finished GoT and Sansa is redeemed a little bit, but I agree she is the most annoying character in the book. I seem to be reading the series in competition with someone else at my library. And they read much slower than I do.

Do you mean Prince Kheldar? From the Belgariad? If so, then yes (I know, because I'm one of the ones who dubbed her it).

Reading: Nothing right now. Searching for something to read....Considering re-reading Harry Potter since it's been a good 2 years since I last read them all. Or maybe something else....so many choices...

Really interested in what you think about both of those, BSG, as I have both of them on my TBR pile.  Will have to keep my eyes on the blog.  :D

Yeah i meant Kheldar...he's humorous especially the fact that he acts like love is a curse when he loves the queen

Umm... yes. It is extremely peculiar that someone who would likely get killed if he revealed who he loved thinks that love is a curse. ;)

Kaz--He acts like that BECAUSE he loves the queen. Have you read the Mallorean? Because that one gets even better in regards to Silk and love...

And I still can't find anything to read. I have a list of books I want to read, but...I was just reading excerpts and summaries for them online, and none of them are catching my eye....Have you ever had that happen? It's frustrating the heck out of me. I'm going on a 14-hour drive tomorrow and I need a book (preferably two...or three) for it.... :-\

I was under the impression that he fell in love with her long before she became queen...and he thought marriage as a whole was terribad just like having obligations

There's a thread ErikHolmes started, saying he was out of things to read. Have you looked at that? It has a lot of good suggestions.

I'm reading In Ashes Lie by Marie Brennan, but I'm finding it a little hard to get into.
If I had any clue, would I be here?

Yeah I saw that (just now, but...yeah). I'm normally a huge fan of fantasy, but apparently I wasn't in the mood. My dad reminded me of a different series I've been meaning to read--The Great and the Terrible by Chris Stewart. So yes. That's what I'm reading now.

I almost burnt Game of Thrones today....it's far to realistic you love some characters and rail at the others and the ones you love get the short end of the stick... this all lead to me putting the book down and seriously considering torching it!

Heh. The only book I've considering torching is Twilight. But as much as I believe she should never have written the book, I just can't convince myself it's not literature enough to burn it....

Evidentally it only gets worse. I read the jacket covers of the next ones and when I found out that he kills some imporatn people I reconsidered reading the rest.

Just finished To Kill a Mockingbird. I'd seen the movie before but never read the book . . . it was pretty up there. I didn't remember some of the key plot changes, either, so that was fun. Very good.

I'll be starting either The Promise or My Name Is Asher Lev next. Not sure which yet.
