I'm doing this completely backwards: I meant to review the previous books before I got to this one, but circumstances didn't allow it (mostly due to reading them while on holiday). So, I'll probably revisit them at a later point, but for now, my thoughts on A Dance With Dragons:

spoilers, obviously )

-If I don't find a home for the kitten soon, I'll go insane. It (possibly she) is past that tiny, constantly sleeping/cuddling phase and is at the face of running around wrecking destruction with such gusto, I'm wondering it got hold of some good uppers and is holding out on me. My hands and arms were covered in scratches anyway, but now it's decided my bare legs make an excellent scratching post. I pretty much need to constantly keep one eye on it-FFS, it's like having a KID!

-X-Men:First Class has eaten my brain. When I'm not reading a truly frightening amount of fic/meta, I'm systematically going through over thee decades of comics (and yes, the characters are older than that, but thinks really start getting interesting sometime in the late 70s) extracting pics for a “illustration of Charles/Erik's love in comics canon”) post I am planning which is at turns hilarious (oh, the crack that is comics canon), nostalgia-inducing and, above all, exhausting.

-I'm currently rereading the A Song Of Ice And Fire books, and with the distractions described above, it's taking longer than expected. I haven't actually read the last two books, but even rereading the bits I vaguely remembered has left me with A Lot Of Thoughts.

I'm so excited about this. I'm not 100% happy with all the castings (Jon Snow's dorky hair/wannabe moustache is made of lulz and Daenarys looks like she went crazy with a homemade bleach job, but Boromir Ned Stark is looking fiiine and I'm surprisingly intrigued by Cercei and Jamie), but the setting look SO pretty. Here's hoping George Martin delivers the next book in the series at some point, and that HBO adapts the rest of the series.
