I am currently reading George R.R. Martin's "Dances with Dragons." I must admit, I grow tiresome with it. This makes me very sad. The world is growing too bloated, the POV character list too big. The characters I love and enjoy most -- Arya, Tyrion, Jaime -- are either non-existent, or off doing things I don't really care about. Danaerys hasn't appealed to me much since she lost Drogo. New characters are being brought in and I have to wonder why. And I swear, if I read the "c" words referring to both female and male genitalia, I shall scream. Which isn't a very good thing to threaten, as I know without doubt I will read both those words over and over and over again. *sigh* Again, I can't tell you how very sad all this makes me, as I simply loved the first 3 volumes.
