I used to have a rule that I wouldn’t watch a book-to-screen adaptation until I’d read the book first. Do you, or have you, had any similar types of weird agreements with yourself? Now I don’t know why it seemed to matter to me so much. Maybe because of spoilers. But in the end, they are generally different enough that I end up finding a surprise in both. I never watched Game of Thrones because I don’t have the stomach for it on screen. But I did start reading the books last year and really enjoyed chatting with friends who had seen the show as I read. It was fun to figure out where the show was different and compare scenes to see which outcome was more satisfying or horrifying. I’m preparing to start “A Feast of Crows” this month and finish that and “A Dance with Dragons” so I can join the rest of this fandom in agony as we await the final book(s). Huge thank you to @penguinrandomhouse for gifting me the new illustrated edition of “Storm of Swords”. This was actually my favorite book of the three and where I felt like the series really started picking up momentum. I love illustrated editions more than any other kind of special edition book, and these illustrations are so beautiful. I knew this would be the set of GoT books I keep on my shelves the moment I saw the illustrated edition of “A Clash of Kings” that released last year. (Speaking of book-to-screen, I finally finished watching “Bridgerton” last night and now I absolutely NEED to get the books! I hope with the popularity of the show they will rerelease all the books in different editions!) #gameofthrones #georgerrmartin #illustratededition #GoT #bookflatlay
