[May 24, 2016] So after the last season finished airing, season 6 in case you were wondering, I felt excited for the first time about the show, it disappointed me a lot so far, but for the first time I felt a spark of hope. So I decided to start with the books. So far it's so similar to the TV series, I'm just shocked Daenerys Targaryen was 13! Not only that Ned Stark is in his early 30s! Everyone is much older in the TV series.



[April 23, 2019] I'm reading the book and committing to it this time (season 8 now), I think God is in the details and George basically told us all that will happen in the first pages! The director is smart, when you only watch the series you can't tell what will happen next, who will win, what the hell is going on, but when you read the books it's ALL here! I'll write everything (for myself) here.
