Game of Thrones

So, yeah I know it's been a while!

And for those of you who are following this to keep up with my fanfiction I am sorry, but life just got in the way. Hopefully I'll be reaching some kind of normality within the next week or so and should get back on track with the writing etc!

Now, onto what I REALLY want to blog about!

Game of Thrones is a new-ish show from HBO and it is FABULOUS. It has such a great cast and a great story. It hooks you like a dumb fish and reels you in without protest. Here's a trailer for you:

I have read the first book so as to be able to compare it to the series and apart from a few liberties here and there that you would expect a TV show to take the likeness to the books is remarkable, they really stick very close.

I finished the first book within a week, a record for me considering that I'm in University exam season and the book was huge! I really mean it when I say I couldn't put this down! It's nearly onto episode 7 but if you can watch it I really suggest you do!

Oh and another interesting fact, most of it is filmed in Northern Ireland, just around the corner from where I'm living at the moment, and I didn't even know until about a week ago! How amazing is that? So, I've sent away a few letters offering myself as an extra for series 2. I know my chances are pretty slim, but it would be so amazing to be a part of something this epic that I couldn't resist. Besides, I've got nothing to lose by submitting myself.

So, that's it from me. I hope you're well. I also seem to have one follower! Hello! You are most welcome, hope you enjoy my ramblings!
