I had to make this topic. I'm just that type of person. Also, I've been trying to get people interested in this series anyway! I think it's awesome, and I think you should read it if you are not already reading it. And if you ARE reading it, then read faster. And if you have already read it, then cry with me about how you can't wait for A Dance With Dragons.

Just started A Feast for Crows. Sadly most of my favourite characters aren't in it.
Rhiannon
I had the same problem. :(

To cope with it, my mind decided to make me like Cersei.
Irysa
I could have finished the first 4 if Calcutta had the bloody second book somewhere.


So right now, A Game of Thrones is all I have read. Dany is my favourite character so far.
Rhiannon
I gues I should post this here, even though I already told everyone in the channel about the most important part.

GRRM updated his site with news on A Dance With Dragons. This is a link.

I don't really like her, but her chapters are the most interesting so far (I've now read half).
Rhiannon
I don't know, I just started to appreciate her insanity in the same way I appreciate the insanity of Xenosaga's Albedo. And that appreciation made me like her.

Started reading A Game of Thrones last week. I got to the second Dany chapter today and I was like "Oh wait this probably has lolisex; I should stop reading." since it was on a school bus. <_<
Malice
I'm still reading a Game of Thrones... What's the next book after that? D:
Yuka
A Clash of Kings. A Storm of Swords is the third, and A Feast for Crows is the fourth. A Dance with Dragons (whenever it comes out) is going to be the fifth.
Malice
What, the series isn't even finished yet..!? Anyway, I finished the first book. The ending was whoa D:!
DustyHaru
Great. All this talk has gotten me interested, I've just ordered the first and second book at the library.

Are they heavy books?
Rhiannon
The fact that you finished the first book leads me to believe you enjoyed it, Malice. I'M PROUD OF MYSELF FOR GETTING YOU INTERESTED DESPITE ALL OF THE SILLY LITTLE SEX SCENES.

They're fairly heavy since they have so many pages, but not like, textbook heavy or anything crazy like that.
Irysa
She said it was only "good", not "awesome" though :(
Malice
I finish most books that I start! OH AND GUESS WHAT I ORDERED THE SECOND BOOK FROM ANOTHER LIBRARY!!

The book wasn't very heavy! But TWO books might be :D!

Good is almost the same as awesome anyway Irysa...
DustyHaru
Ok I just got A Game of Thrones yesterday, (after getting A Clash of Kings saturday)

should I bother to use spoiler tags?
DustyHaru
Finished A Game of Thrones; starting A Clash of Kings.

Ned :|
Malice
Ned :| indeed.

SECOND BOOK GET. I hope this will be good. :P
Rhiannon
I THINK IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO USE SPOILER TAGS SINCE PEOPLE WHO COME INTO THIS TOPIC MAY NOT HAVE ACTUALLY READ IT BUT MAY BE INTERESTED IN POTENTIALLY READING IT.

And "Ned :|"?! More like "Ned ;_____;"
Yuka
Tyrion is the best character ever.

Raijinili
That seems like bad writing to me.
DustyHaru
just finished a Clash of Kings. It took longer than I expected; I had stopped reading for a couple days.
And I'm really angry that I got spoiled on a really important event. :|

The rest of the story was okay, I was most interested in Tyrion and Jon.
Davos wasn't as interesting than I would have hoped. Only things he's got going for him are onions.

EDIT: Got rid of spoilers.
Yuka
Ned ;____:

Anyways, I'm so close to finishing A Game of Thrones that I'm practically done. I have like 30 pages left, so I need to go read those.

And I'm done. Starting A Clash of Kings tomorrow.
Malice
Ah craaap, I accidentally clicked one of those silly spoiler things. BAwwwwww why did I do that TT__TT!!

I just started a Clash of Kings... It's sooooo long whyyyyyy.. ;o;
DustyHaru
I hadn't really started reading A Storm of Swords yet, the whole spoilage bummed me out :\
I guess I'll start today.
Yuka
Just read a rather sudden turn of events in A Storm of Swords. I'm sad now.

Fuck you GRRM, fuck you. :(
Rhiannon
Was it red?
Yuka
Very red. And very wet.
Lux
I'm halfway through A Storm of Swords.

I hate Cersei. :(

And I used to think Sansa was an ignorant slut, but she's sort of redeemed herself a bit.
Yuka
Cersei is awesome, fuck you.

Nearing the end of A Storm of Swords.
Lux
I'm only halfway through A Storm of Swords, so I'll find out I guess.

And yeah, nevermind. Sansa is still an ignorant slut.

Ever since they mentioned that Ygritte had eyes that were too far apart I keep imagining her with that feature REALLY exaggerated.
Frisk
STARTED SERIES TODAY.
Rhiannon
WHAT DO YOU THINK SO FAR
Frisk
DRAGONS HAVE ISSUES, WOLVES AND ANTLERS GO TOGETHER APPARENTLY, AND PEOPLE ARE DYING WITHIN 10 PAGES. I am enjoying it, even though I'm not very far yet. IT'S HARD KEEPING UP WITH NAMES THOUGH.
Yuka
IT GETS EASIER THE MORE YOU READ

FUCKING LOVE THIS SERIES BY THE WAY

OH HEY GUYS

WHAT'S WITH THOSE BIRDS CLEARLY PASTED ONTO RANDOM GRAY ABYSSES
Frisk
Things are starting to happen really fast. People are dying. I guess I might have it finished before the end of next week.
Rhiannon
BY THE WAY IMPORTANT DATES

APRIL 17TH - AGOT SERIES STARTS AIRING
JULY 12TH - ADWD'S "TRUE" RELEASE DATE (HE SAYS THIS ONE IS DIFFERENT!)
YESTERDAY - AGOT SERIES PREVIEW THING (IT WAS GOOD)
Rhiannon
So I finished A Dance With Dragons yesterday. IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHAT THE GENERAL CONSENSUS OF IT IS, BECAUSE TO ME IT WAS EQUAL TO AFFC, MAYBE EVEN A LITTLE WORSE. Only a few interesting things happened outside of Meereen, and the noninteresting stuff that happened seemed less interesting than in the other books. Maybe I'm imagining it though.

Either way, good book. DOES ANYONE OTHER THAN ME AND WALRUS EVEN HAVE IT YET
DustyHaru
I'm planning on ordering it from the library soonish.
Enzd
Does Catelyn ever get any better/more interesting because so far I really don't like her :|
Rhiannon
No. Maybe. It's safer to go with no, but a thing happens.
Frisk
Like 3 years later, and in the last 2 months I've read through A Clash of Kings and almost finished A Storm of Swords. Long live the king.

FOR SOME REASON WHENEVER I GET TO A BRAN CHAPTER I'M ALWAYS "Oh. A Bran chapter :/" but I always end up liking them.
Frisk
I'm less than a hundred pages from finishing A Feast for Crows. College needs to not exist I have better things to do like read these books.
