Not Quite A Favorite

This isn't my favorite outfit. It was hastily put together in an attempt to look presentable despite the recent spike in humidity and heat. I've been slacking with the photos lately because, up until noon today, I was immersed in A Game of Thrones. Now, I'm not much of a fantasy genre person when it comes to books since I have almost no patience for memorizing place names, family trees, and customs unique to a contrived society. I only got in to Lord of the Rings AFTER I'd seen the movies (and the cartoons). I've yet to see the HBO adaptation of the Song of Ice and Fire series, but I was moved to read this gigantic hunk of a novel at the behest of many of my friends. 

I relented. And I was pleased I relented. 

Though it's quite long, A Game of Thrones is very easy to read. The plot is interesting, somewhat intricate, but not complex at all, and the story is told through a variety of points of views to keep things fresh. I'll stop talking about it before I give out any spoilers.

Have you read or seen Game of Thrones?

  1. I really need to get into Game of Thrones. I've been told by countless people that I would love the books but the HBO series kind of turned me off (too many boobs aggressively thrust my face). But I need to read the books - I think they'll be better.

  3. I watched the series and definitely enjoyed it, although I haven't read the books (yet). I felt like the first few episodes were amazing, but then towards the end of the season, not so much.

    Love your belt!

  4. I started reading the first book in high school, got about half way through and never finished it after returned it to the library. I'm a terrible person!:D

    I like that colour of green on you! It's one you don't get to see in everyday life!

  5. I'm not a fantasy genre person too.
    I really want to read one book to see if I do like it though.

    I love your sandals<3 ^__^
    Omg, I know what you mean about the weather.
    I try to put together a decent outfit even though it's hot as well.

  6. Ohh, I think you look cute! :) I have not read Game Of Thrones but I have watched the first season of the tv show! I loved it, I loved the dire wolves! And the wee girl who fights! My brother told me the guy who wrote it was an old racist, sexist dude and that explains a lot about the prejudices (especially in the book apparently!). So I am interested to read them! Have a great weekend! Zoë x

  7. Cute shoes! I don't think i'd be able to get through it, the show looks awful and i'm generally much more of a girly reader/watcher. x hivenn

  8. I like this outfit, simple but still very cute. When I get annoyed by the heat, you're lucky if I put on clothes (well I have on clothes, but just "around the house" shorts and a tshirt since I also refuse to leave the house)

    I haven't gotten into Game of Thrones, but I keep hearing good things about it. I don't know that I'm ready to tackle another book/show, though. I have about 40 books in queue and am watching about 10 shows. My brain is a little 'splodey right now.

  16. I've been told by so many different people that this is such a good series, even if you're not into fantasy. I'll get there someday!

  17. Why not liking the outfit?? But I love the color... very matching with my new pair of shoes :)

  18. Your dress is a really lovely shade of green. What didn't you like about the outfit? I think you look great in it.

    Nope, I haven't read or seen Game of Thrones. One fantasy series that I read and really enjoyed was The Chronicles of Prydain. Have you read those? If not, I highly recommend them.

  19. although not your favourite you look lovely, nonetheless. I haven't heard of a game of thrones, but I trust that books always are better than their film adapations.

  20. You know this already, but YES I LOVE GAME OF THRONES.

    Sorry for the all caps, I'm just a little obsessed these days. I read the first four books in about a month and have been looking forward to getting into the fifth shortly.

    I like how the series has captivated an audience that's not just fantasy fans. I'm not, I haven't read Lord of the Rings, but these have me hooked. I wonder what it is about them..

    Even if it's not your favourite outfit, I think it looks great :)

  24. My husband read Game of Thrones last week, but that's about the extent of what I know about it. He enjoyed it.
