My mom got me this A Song of Ice and Fire series (5-volume boxed set) by George R.R. Martin yesterday. And I was so glad, I am literally caressing this boxed set for months now whenever I visit the book store, but starting today, it's mine now. I'm just too happy. Add the fact that this is discounted by 20%! Originally 1,495 Php, we got it for only 1,196! Five books for the price of FOUR! :) It's quite a deal, eh?
The boxed set contains the first 5 books of the ASOIAF series, which I've loved so much, ever since I've watched the TV series and read the first three books. Includes (:: click the link for the reviews ::)
- A Game of Thrones (AGoT)
- A Clash of Kings (ACoK)
- A Storm of Swords (ASoS)
- A Feast for Crows (AFfC)
- A Dance with Dragons (ADwD)
I tried flicking through the pages of A Storm of Swords, marveling at its whole printed glory when I saw a preview of "A Feast for Crows" at the end of the book. Then I saw this:
I swear -- I literally shrieked my heart out when I saw Cersei's name printed in that. Cersei's POV! Finally! I've been waiting, three books, just for this moment. No matter how people criticize and bash her, she is one of my favorite characters in the series so far. Maybe even placing second to Tyrion (he IS my favorite character). She has her flaws, yes, but I love women who fights, who don't want to be chained by standards and traditions, and who wants to rule. She might have taken it a bit overboard, but i don't care, I loved her for that.
Well, happy reading to me, and to everyone else! I'll update you in the coming days. :) xoxo
