A Game of Thrones
“When you play a game of thrones you win or you die.”
I was unsure whether or not I should read this for a few reasons: generally speaking, I don’t enjoy reading fantasy novels as much as other genres; I already knew what was going to happen, having binged on the TV series; and I enjoyed the show so much, I didn’t see how the books could live up to it. The overwhelmingly positive reviews of the books swayed me though and I dug in. As it turned out, this, the first book in George R. R. Martin’s epic series A Song of Ice and Fire, was just as gripping and binge-worthy as I could have hoped for. ★★★★★
