    Well it took me 3 weeks but I've finally finished A Game of Thrones. Can't decide whether to start A Clash of Kings or try something else to break it up.

    Just bought Terry McDermott's autobiography which will give me something to read next week when I'm staying in Manchester for a week due to work.

    Which "Terry McDermott"?

    Seems to be that a singer (Scottish-born); a former football (not the American version) player; a baseball player; an Australian actor; a speed skater; and a few others with that name.

    He used to play soccer for Liverpool in the 70s and early 80s. Sorry for the confusion, I should've made it clearer who I was talking about.

    Yes, I got sidetracked with that as well. The map is interesting given what just happened last night.

    Don't continue. You'll just be disappointed when you reach the end of book 5 since there is no realistic sign of book 6 in sight let alone book 7 which is supposed to wrap things up.

    I absolutely loved the series when I started reading it back in the 1990's. NINETEEN NINETIES!!!!!!! But its now obvious that Martin isn't going to finish. Between writers block, the TV show outpacing him and stealing his dramatic reveals (Jon is still dead in the books), etc its just become apparent he's not going to finish.

    I'm going to resume reading the Creature Feature book that is Devil Hunters by R Guiltieri


    Something is terrorizing persons in New Jersey, and leaving mutilated bodies also the issue that is missing persons. All evidence points to The New Jersey Devil which is considered hoax in the Cryptozoology Community.
    Derek Jenner a Crypto Hunter returns, and the Authorities summon to investigate. Derek and his team are going to investigate in the Pine Barrens Forest,a Corrupt Government Official will do everything he can to cover up the awful secret which is in the heart of the Pine Barrens Forest.

    This sounds like a amazing Horror Supernatural Creature Feature Monster book that is similar to Predator except can stand on it's own. I have high hopes that this going to be a terrific unforgettable book.

    Yeah I kinda knew before starting the first book that I'd probably never get to read the ending, but I still feel like it's something I ought to read.

    Just wondering, has anyone read The Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson? I've heard it's good, so may consider buying this next.

    Its great. You could view at superheroes in a medieval setting.

    Word of warning though its only sort of a trilogy. There is a sequel series set a couple hundred years after the first trilogy that builds on what happened in the first. Three of four planned books in it so far. Its an old west type of setting. Sanderson also plans to someday write a final trilogy / quadrology in the world that will be futuristic. There is also Mistborn novella called Secret History that is a must read after you've finished the first trilogy as it would be extremely spoilerish for the first three books. He thinks he'll get around to writing the 4th book next year. Unlike Martin he writes prolifically so he'll almost certainly get it done but he's got so many different series going that it does sometimes take him a while to get back to them.

    Also if your not aware many of Sanderson's books exist in a shared multiverse he calls the Cosmere so there are hints sprinkled throughout them and the Mistborn books as to the greater story going on in his Cosmere. You can read them without knowledge of the other series he's done but here and there you will come across something that seems random or pointless but is actually part of the Cosmere thing.

    The 5 books so far released from a song of ice and fire.

    I really appreciated the 3 first, a storm of swords being clearly my favorite, but the two last bored me. Expecially a feast for crows.

    No, i don't give much of a damn about countless chapters with nothing but Cercei being a bitch.
