Book Review: A Clash Of Kings

So I finally finished reading A Clash Of Kings. It seemed to have taken me forever, mostly because I was so busy during the summer, but I finally finished it last night, and I’m completely excited! More so than I should be LOL

I want to start the third book, but I feel like I need a GOT break. I have so many feelings for many of the characters (even the ones I shouldn’t)
So instead I’ve started reading “The Fault In Our Stars” (which I know is going to wreck havoc on my feelings too lol but I’ve heard such great things about it, I can’t help but want to check it out!)

Below is my review from Goodreads:

A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire, #2)A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yet again Martin has me biting my nails as I read this book.Throughout the book I fall in love & in hate with many characters, on all sides of the war. So much so I’m never sure who I want to win the war.

Unlike A Game Of Thrones, this book was not slow to start. It was action, and anticipation from start to finish. Where Martin sometimes gives us sorrow, he gives us hope, but the opposite is true. He has a way of making you hopeful, and then ripping it away from you with a sentence or two. Just like the other books in the series, this book is always keeping you on your toes with it’s many twists and unexpected turns, right up until the end.

Thankful Thursday [LinkUp]

Thankful Thursdays Button

I’ve been debating on adding some new link ups, just to be able to switch it up.
There are some I do almost every week, and some I do whenever it works out.
I think Thankful Thursday needs to be a weekly one, a reminder to stop and be thankful for the little things.

This week I am Thankful for:

  1. Autumn: Not just because of it’s beautiful colour, which is amazing in itself, but also because Autumn means all things autumn-like, including apples and pumpkins (two of my favourite things!) My next few weeks will be filled with apple crisp, squash,Canadian thanksgiving, and pumpkin pies. As well as one of my favourite things, Pumpkin Spice Lattes! (which apparently McDonald’s makes now, anyone who has tried them, do they hold a candle to Starbucks? Let me know!)
  2. Hubby: He’s amazingly supportive of the things I do, even the things I’m not sure I can do. He also still does all the little things that many husbands forget overtime.
  3. My Littles. Even though they can be less than perfect, they are still pretty awesome. I’d have less gray hairs without them, but I’d have less life too.

What are YOU thankful for this week?

Post Secret-PTSD

Every week I browse Post Secret. Sometimes I share the secrets that speak to me, for whatever reason. Sometimes they are just cute, or they make me laugh. Other times they reach me on a deeper level.

This week this one was the one that reached me to the core.

For those that don’t know Hubby was diagnosed with PTSD a few years back, after a very traumatic childhood. The years before the diagnosis weren’t easy at all.The path after has had many bumps. Everyone tells me how strong I have been to stand by him through this, but really it’s not my strength, it was the strength of our love for each other. I’m not going to say it’s been easy, or perfect, but I can say it’s been worth it.
