So I decided to update you all on my current reading endeavors, so without further ado let’s get started.

A Game of Thrones by George R. R Martin

Yes we’ve all heard of Martin’s stellar series and I have to say I absolutely love it. I like the writing and the story is wonderful. At first I was really worried about starting this because I felt that there would be a very complex plot line and what not but once I got into the swing of things, I started enjoying myself. But I must confess, I have been reading this since November, I’m a quarter of the way through. It’s not that I don’t like big books, it’s just that I can’t read about the same characters for so long. So what I do is I rad multiple books alongside a really big novel and that’s why it’s taking me so long.

As for the characters, my favorite point of views are:

  • Jon Snow
  • Eddard Stark
  • Tyrion Lannister
  • Deanerys Targaryen

The Shawshank Redemption / Different Seasons by Stephen King

Now I am a huge fan of King’s work. Now I actually started listening the audio book for The Shawshank Redemption in the gym. I go there a couple of times in the week and I like to have something to keep my mind occupied while I workout. So what’s better than an audio book? So I started this and I wasn’t really expecting to fall in love with it or anything but I have done just that.

The story is compelling, the characters are amazing and I just wish I could see all of this for my self. The story is intricate and I just fell head over heals for Andy. I actually like this so much that I went out and bought Different Seasons a few days after I started it.

Othello by William Shakespeare

Now I’m actually reading this for school, and I have to say I’m enjoying it. Shakespeare uses a lot of flowery language and he’s a little difficult to understand at times but regardless of all that he was a brilliant playwright. I like the characters and the plot is grand, too bad this is a tragedy and Othello will end up dying. Oops, spoiler alert! Sorry!

Fun Fact: with the Pelican Shakespeare editions of these plays, a book with a black cover symbolizes that that particular play is a tragedy. Where as a book with a white cover symbolizes that that play is a comedy. This choice in covers is a reference to Elizabethan era, where if a play was being shown a colored flag would be put up to symbolize it’s genre. Black flags stated that the play being showcased was a tragedy. White flags stated that the play being showcased was a comedy. And Red flags stated that thplay being showcased was a history.

Now I can’t really speak for this one, mostly because I started it a day ago and I’ve only gotten past the first two pages. Now the plot is interesting and the writing appears to be good. Plus, with a main character who is a street lawyer that has a target on his back, there’s bound to be some action and I’ve been dying for a fast paced book. So let’s wait and see how this goes, I’m looking forward to this.
