'Sunday Snippet'

I've reached the halfway point of 'Game of Thrones'  by George R.R. Martin and I'm beginning to become disappointed with it. Maybe it's my lack of patience, but where this book was fast paced at the beginning it seems to have slowed to snail's pace. Nevertheless I am determined to finish this, because I have abandoned too many books this year.

Here's a snippet:

Whatever you're up to, enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Happy Sunday!

Sunday Snippet

A few weeks ago, I was frustrated by the fact that I couldn't find anything good to read. Now, I have so many books, I haven't got the time to finish them!

I recently joined the library (which I have mentioned before some where on the blog) which has finally opened  and have borrowed 3 books in Spanish:

'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' by Roald Dahl
'Emil and the Detectives' by Erich Kastner
'The Chronicles of Narnia-(The Magician's Nephew) by C.S.Lewis

Not only that, but I still have books on my shelves to be read, 'Game of Thrones Books 1' by George R.R Martin and the other day, a friend gave me the entire collection of 'Twilight' to finish, as I mentioned that I had only managed to read the first and second  book in the series. I'm not complaining about having so much to read, but I wish that there were more hours in the day!

Anyway back to my current read. I'm ploughing through this and, even though 'Game of Thrones' is a thick book, I'm really enjoying it still. Here's a snippet:

Page 232: 'Maester Luwin had sent a bird after Lord Eddard with a message, and another to Mother and a third to Jon on the Wall, but there had been no answers.'
