Right now, Goodreads has the sixth book listed as coming out in 2014--TWO whole years from now--and the seventh book listed to come out in the year 2020. And from what I hear of George R.R. Martin's track record, those are both hopeful dates. What on Earth have I done to myself? I can't possibly wait that long. *More eye rolling from the crowd*
Anyhow, this series has become my absolute favorite; knocking Gone With the Wind out of first place and pushing the likes of Harry Potter, LOTR, and even the amazing Hunger Games, back further in line. I don't want to read anything else. I just want to live a bit longer in the land of Westeros, where secrets abound, the bad guys rule, the good guys turn bad, and almost everyone I have come to love has died--and then some.
So my fellow ASoFaI lovers, I'm calling you out.
Come discuss the books with me! Who are your favorite characters? Who do you want for king/queen? What conspiracies or plots do you see in the making? And how long have you been a fan?
And, because I always like to design things to display after reading good books (it helps me calm my need to just read and read more), the following posters are just some of the conspiracy theories and/or hopes I have for the books.
Spoilers abound...if you haven't read the books.
