Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine and is meant to showcase upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting or just books which we are dying to read...
My Waiting on Wednesday this week is George R. R. Martin's "A Clash of Kings," which is the second book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series.
A comet the colour of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war. It is a tale in which brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk in the night. Here a princess masquerades as an orphan boy; a knight of the mind prepares a poison for a treacherous sorceress; and wild men descend from the Mountains of the Moon to ravage the countryside. Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, victory may go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel...and the coldest hearts. For when kings clash, the whole land trembles. (Goodreads)
Why can't I wait?
I know that Waiting on Wednesday is supposed to be generally about books which are yet to be published which we are dying in anticipation to read but today I just couldn't follow that rule. I am so close to finishing the first book in the series A Game of Thrones, which has also been turned into a popular TV show by HBO, and am in love with the story already. The attention to detail, characters and the plot line is amazing! I cannot wait to read A Clash of Kings!
