The World of Ice & Fire by George R.R. Martin was #1 on my wishlist for Christmas. I have heard a lot of negative things about this book, some because its not Winds of Winter (haha!), and other because it is too history oriented. Personally, I love learning about history, and to learn more about the back story from my favorite epic fantasy trilogy is going to be awesome. And if I don’t think book has some incredible art in.
Also, I was lucky enough to collectors edition or whatever you want to call it for this book. I was so afraid to open or even touch it!
Then going along with the Game of Thrones theme I got the A Feast of Ice & Fire.
I love cooking, I love Game of Thrones. This should be a good time.
The First Law Trilogy by Joe Abercrombie has been on my TBR for the longest time! I unfortunately has not been able to find any used version of these books instore or online, that was both in somewhat good condition and cheeper than just buying a new copy.
I have set up for #3 on this years TBR list.
What I do have set for #1 this is Prince of Thorns! I already owned books 2 and 3 from this series, but like The First Law Trilogy, count find book 1 for a cheap, used price. So naturally, I put it on my Christmas list!
I just started this yesterday, and damn! This is grimdark!
I know this post is very past the holiday, but sometimes life gets in the way. You know how it is. But please tell me, what good books or bookish things did you get for the holidays?
