"It's Monday! What are you reading?" is a fun meme hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey. This is where we share the books we have read the last week and our reading plans for this week.
Just finished watching the TV series, seasons 1 - 3... forgive me my lady and my lord for not reading and blogging as much as before, this has kept me occupied for the last 3 weeks... and now I am about to read the first book. . . .
Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.
As Warden of the north, Lord Eddard Stark counts it a curse when King Robert bestows on him the office of the Hand. His honour weighs him down at court where a true man does what he will, not what he must … and a dead enemy is a thing of beauty.
The old gods have no power in the south, Stark’s family is split and there is treachery at court. Worse, the vengeance-mad heir of the deposed Dragon King has grown to maturity in exile in the Free Cities. He claims the Iron Throne.
Let's go to Myrtle Beach together, Mel . . . It has been over four years since Devin Gage spoke those words to Melanie Bates-four years with barely a word passing between them. Of course it was just a high school student's fantasy. So why was he at her house now-telling her it was time for them to go? Friends since birth, Devin and Melanie set off on their dream vacation.
Their first stop is to visit quirky Aunt Bert near the lovely town of Mount Airy, North Carolina, where they spend days visiting Andy Griffith's Mayberry. When they reach Myrtle Beach, they get some long-awaited sightseeing in and meet new people. From the boy-crazy teenager with her heart set on Devin to the identical twins who could be Melanie's Malibu Ken doll come to life, Dev and Mel see it all. Along the way, the two of them reminisce about their past and catch up on the past four years. Nothing is off limits-except Devin's rich and beautiful fiancée, Roxie Newcomb, and those pesky phone calls he keeps receiving. That's all right though, because Melanie is determined to make as many special new memories as she can during their vacation, even at the risk of her own heartbreak. It seems somewhere along the way, her feelings for Devin have grown into something stronger than friendship. Regardless, Mel knows that once Devin is married, Roxie will put a stop to his and Melanie's relationship. This vacation is her last hope for making memories.
