April Already?!

Not only is it April already but its also nearly half way through April! What on earth have I been doing?! Well I have been finishing some projects up (art commissions and trades) and getting ready for the craziness of the next couple of months with all the weddings coming up. I have been reading slowly, but have finally added another book to my list of completed reads!

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Wow that took forever! This was an interesting book that was suggested by a good friend of mine a while ago, but then I found out about the TV series so I had to at least finish the first book before it started. I think this book was full of fantastic ideas but for some reason it was really hard to get into. I don't know if it was the way the chapters were laid out by character and in random order, or if it was the characters themselves that I couldn't get into, or if it was that there were so many different story lines moving. I did enjoy it and am still looking forward to seeing the TV series and reading the next books but I just need a break from it for a couple of weeks.

View all my reviews

I am definately taking a short break from this series after that book! I am currently reading Strange Candy by Laurell Hamilton and since the next book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood came out I thought I would read that too! Neither should take too long. I figure that during the chaos of the wedding season it would be good to read simple children and middle reader books.

Hope you are all gearing up for your outdoor summer reading!!
