Books and wine

Sometimes you need to unwind after a long day. I find that the best way is to curl up on the couch with an nice glass of wine or tea, and a good book.
I just started Game of Thrones, there is a HBO series based off the book. I have never watched the show but from what I have heard it’s good.
This is book one of the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin

Book Review: I haven’t finished the book yet, but what I’ve read so far is brilliant. It’s complex, multi-layered characters and never-dull plot make this book a hard read to put down!!!
I will give another review when I have finished the book!!

Back of Book Summary: Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens.
Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; and a determined woman undertakes the most treacherous of journeys. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.
