It was a crazy week. Our weather went from record breaking heat followed by storms and lows. We are taking it one day at a time still. My reading has been a reflection of my emotions. I had 4 books and 2 audiobooks going this week and completed one. Don’t laugh but Mr. Caffeinated and I started Game of Thrones. Yes, Season One, Episode One. LOL The cable company gave him HBO for free for two years so here we are…. eight years late to the party. Stay Caffeinated!

    Oh, you’re much better off binge watching GoT. I wish I had waited and watched all at once. My cousin did and she was better able to follow the plot and all the characters, whereas I just kept forgetting who everyone was and what they were doing because I had to wait between seasons!

    Don’t worry! I have still only seen season one of game of thrones and need to catch up with the rest of the series at… some… point. I did like it! I just got distracted 😛

    You are not alone, I’ve never seen a single episode of GOT! I had a busy week, my MG book releases in a few weeks and I have SO.. MUCH. TO. DO. I hope you have a great week with awesome weather, Kimba.

  4. Lizzy

    Hugs. Still thinking of you often. Hope this week is better and that you find a book you can just immerse yourself into!

  5. Fran @ Fran's Corner

    suppose the weather is all over the place everywhere right now. Here in UK we’re having another heat wave (the third in just a few months), and it’s been alterning with storms and heavy rain.

    I loved GOT, the only thing I can say is ‘Don’t get attached to ANYONE’ lol!

    Sometimes reading seems disjointed. Hope things are getting better in your world.
    I found GOT hard to get through (sex and language) but after the first season I was hooked by the story and primary characters
    Happy Reading and Watching.

  8. Rachel

    I LOVED How to Love a Duke in Ten Days, and Sapphire Flames. I’ll have to check out your review once it posts. Enjoy Game of Thrones. I still haven’t read or watched the story. 🙂

  9. Sophia Rose

    Yeah, the heat was oppressive until those storms rolled through. Glad for the break.
    LOL, sorry, I’m laughing anyway about the Game of Thrones start. I still haven’t read or watched them… except the grand finale. Ha! I blame my husband for insisting I see it with him even though I hadn’t watched any of the previous episodes or seasons.
    Oooh, got the same haul books. 🙂

    Have a great week, Kimberly!

    I didn’t know you hadn’t seen Game of Thrones. I was definitely hooked for a while but this year with the finale I wasn’t impressed. The show writers just didn’t do justice however spectacular the visual effects (with the dragons, White Walkers etc) and the hard work that went into making this TV show. Jon Snow will always be a favourite character as well as all the visual beauty of the North. I really hope GRR Martin gives a better ‘writing’ experience. UGH! I Can’t! With all due respect, it was what seemed like an impossible task, to finish filming a series without the writing expertise of author George Martin. I am mad about it because Game of Thrones deserves better. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did. I’ve seen it from beginning to end at least 3 times.

    Anyway, I hope you have a great week!

  11. Marti @ Bookish Treats

    The weather has been crapy where I live too. I started Game of Thrones this year as well! My sister is in love with the show and forcing me to watch it. I’m finishing season 3 now.
    Have a great week!

  12. Kristin @ Addicted to HEA

    I’m really curious what you’ll think of Game of Thrones. You’ll probably love it 😀 And if you fall in love, maybe you’ll listen to the book? I’d LOVE to talk about that!

    We’re enjoying the low temps right now so thanks for sending them along! Here’s to another week and one more book!

  13. Shelleyrae @ Book’d Out

    I still haven’t watched anything but 2 episodes of GoT, it’s just not for me, but I hope you and hubby enjoy it. I hope the weather evens out, it’s officially the last week of winter here.

    Have a great reading week

  14. sjhigbee

    Urg! That weather sounds crazy unpleasant! We were also very late to the GoT party in that I bought the first 6 seasons for Himself’s birthday last year and bingewatched them, before acquiring Season 7 and then watched S 8 along with everyone else. I’m fascinated to hear how you get on with it – while I love Martin’s writing, I couldn’t get on with A Song of Ice and Fire, though I love the TV dramatisation…

  15. A Voracious Reader

    I’ve read very little and it sucks. Hoping things get back to some kind of normalcy soon, so I feel ya on that front. The boys watched GoT, but I’ve seen bits of it. Enjoy!

  16. Stormi Johnson

    We have had some weird weather here too! Hope you enjoy Game of Thrones it was never of interest to me but at least you know not to be impressed with how it ends because of the groaning of the masses. 🙂

    Have a great week and happy reading!

    Enjoy Game of Thrones, I still haven’t watched it but it looks good.Have a nice week ahead and yes, taking it one day at a time is all we can do.

  18. Sophie

    Well Kimberly your weather was definitely crazy! And if you are beginning GOT now I bet that we won’t see you online very often because it’s completely addictive! Have a great Sunday!

  19. Natalie @Natflix&Books

    Some of my favorite shows are on HBO, including GoT. I’m also in the middle of several books but am struggling to finish any of them. Hope things get better.

  20. Anne

    I’m still trying to catch up from moving and being out of town. I know exactly what I want to do and WANT to do it. But I need more hours in a day. I have yet to watch Game of Thrones although I intend to watch it.

    I am enjoying the lower temps, it’s more conducive to yard work lol I hope you have a great week and get comfortable with some good books!

  21. Lola

    We had some unexpected warm weather suddenly at the end of this week. Your weather sounds crazy with the high and lows. It can be hard to find the right book when you’re emotions are all over the place.

    Hey at least you can binge read Game of Thrones as all the episodes are out already. I haven’t watched it and I am sure you’re not the only one who is only starting it now. Have a great week!

  22. RO

    LOL! Don’t feel bad, you’re not alone. I’ve heard all kinds of wonderful things about Game of Thrones, but have yet to see it. Grab your popcorn and tea for a bingefest! Hugs, and hope your day is amazing! RO

  23. Greg

    Oh this is your first time through Game of Thrones? Wow hope you guys enjoy! You have lots of binging ahead haha! The weather has been kinda different here too the past week.

    May have to do FraterFest this year- looks fun!
