Book: This is embarrassing, but I’m still going on A Clash of Kings by George R R Martin. It’s taking me forever to finish, so here’s another teaser, this time from page 734. I’m up to page 504.

He had never sounded more like a stupid little boy. Sansa touched her lips to the metal, thinking that she would kiss any number of swords sooner than Joffrey.

Book: So, I’m STILL reading A Clash of Kings by George R R Martin. It’s taking a while, but to be fair it’s a long book and very involved so can’t rush through it! Last week I was up to page 254, i’m now up to 333, and my teaser is from page 584.

He gave me a potion that made me powerless to move or speak, yet did nothing to dull my senses. With a long hooked blade, he sliced me root and stem, chanting all the while.

Teaser

Book: I’m reading A Clash of Kings by George R R Martin – the second book of A Song of Ice and Fire series. I’m up to page 254, and am loving it so far. But not quite as much as I loved the first one, A Game of ThronesMy teaser is from page 522.

A widow brought the dried corpse of her husband, covered with a crust of silvered leaves; such remnants were believed to have great power, especially if the deceased had been a sorcerer, as this one had. And the Tourmaline Brotherhood pressed on her a crown wrought in the shape of a three-headed dragon; the coils were yellow gold, the wings silver, the heads carved from jade, ivory, and onyx.
