Waiting on Wednesday (#4)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, where we have the chance to share what upcoming releases we are on the edge of our seats in anticipation for.

This week I have decided to list A Dance with Dragons by George RR Martin.  Or better known to readers of the series as book five in the Song of Ice and Fire series.  I must admit though, I have not read any since book three.  I own book four, and I will own book five.  But Martin take a very very long time writing these novels.  In fact, originally there was supposed to be seven novels but as I understand the publishers made him split book 4 into two.  So now there will be 8 books.   I have read interviews with Martin where he is real snooty with his fans saying he will write the books when he feels like it.  So, I personally have decided to not read the books again until all the book are out.

I do love love the Game of Thrones show on HBO and think they are doing a fantastic job with the series.  I wonder where the series will go though since the books aren't finished and won't be for YEARS!!! 


  1. Great choice! It is on my hubby's list. Here is my pick:

  2. That's cool! Haven't really heard of this series much. Although I think I've seen commercials for the show. But I don't have HBO. :(

    Jessica@a GREAT read

  3. Oh goodness YES! I've been waiting for this one so long, I almost can't imagine what actually *reading* it will be like!

  4. I am so ridiculously excited for A DANCE WITH DRAGONS that it makes me jittery just thinking about it being released. The show has been perfect and...I had better be quiet else I'll just keep rambling. :)

  5. I am LOVING the HBO series so far so I'm really excited to start reading The Game of Thrones. I just got it yesterday! And that sucks about the author being a bit snooty.. lol
