Review: A Game of Thrones

A Game of Thrones
A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So entrancing! I didn't think it would be so engrossing, and easy to read, but was swept away with it's deep characterization and plot. I can't wait for the rest of the series.

Review: Blood of the Fold

Blood of the Fold
Blood of the Fold by Terry Goodkind

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another good book. The repetition over everything that has happened in the past, even in the same book, gets old, but I still listened with rapture. Onto the next one!

Review: The Alloy of Law

The Alloy of Law
The Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another good Sanderson book! Not as in-depth as the Mistborn trilogy, but enjoyable nonetheless.
