Game Of Thrones

Game Of Thrones - The Dreamy "Jon Snow"
My husband loves TV. 

I love books. 

But we have found an HBO series (based on this book series - I loved it) that has us meeting nightly on the couch almost breathless with anticipation of the next episode. Breathless I tell you. If you have HBO, you can watch the first season right now. The second season will be out in April of 2012.

If you've read the books by the brilliant George R.R. Martin, you'll have a deeper understanding of the characters and the source behind the magic of what smoochie David Benioff has created for the TV screen.

It has sparked delightful, connecting conversations between me and Carl because he wants to know more about the background of the characters that can't be shared in the show due to time constraints - but it's all in my head and my heart from the books.

 My hero, "Arya Stark".

Read the book series, available at your local library.

Then watch the HBO series with your hubby.

We have been enjoying the best date evenings - ever - right in our own home. 

(This series is not for children - adults only. There is graphic fighting and the other stuff I won't mention because my mom is reading this and I don't want to embarrass her. Love you, mom.)

I'm joining Jennie at Got My Reservations for The Louisa Challenge in 2012 and these two reads have excited me more about this upcoming bloggy book club adventure than I thought would be possible. 

Did you know that she was related to John and Sam Adams? I'm pretty much a John Adams freak, thanks be to this author. Your library can supply the materials, but you bring this beauty to life.

Will you join us?
