I think like everyone else, I was seriously daunted by the size of A Game Of Thrones, in spite of how much I wanted to read it. So yeah, for some I “did it in the wrong order” – I watched the TV series before I read the book. But you know what? I don’t care. I love […]

After I met Samantha Shannon back in September, I was stoked to read this book. I mean, she is so sweet. So sweet.

While I didn’t remember the movie version of The Two Towers being better than the movie version of the Fellowship, […]

Oh hello there. Do not judge me for never having read this before. I feel guilty enough as it is. But here I am, reading the most classic fantasy series ever. I tried multiple times before to get into it but each time lost interest. Not this time. I found it surprisingly easy to read, while I had […]
