I guess that No Other Appetite is just emerging from some sort of unannounced hiatus… So, hello! I’ve missed writing and now that our move is kinda sorta winding down and we’re settling in, I hope to resume writing with the same frequency that I had going leading up to the insanity of house-buying.
Over the past few months, I have read as much as possible, so I have a few books to write up about over the next few weeks. Currently, however, I’m soldiering through Game of Thrones due to my recent obsession with the television show. While tackling a novel as LONG as this one (coupled with the big move) possibly derails me from surpassing my goal of reading 45 books this year, it’s proving to be well worth that sacrifice.
While I am far away from being in a position to write my review/reactions to the novel, I can share that my favorite character (and who I am personally rooting for to win the Game) is Danaerys Targaryen (AKA Khaleesi or Mother of Dragons). I ran a few internet searches for sites dedicated to her (while trying my best to not read too much history on her character as I don’t want to ruin what may or may not happen…) and found a few nifty sites that I am going to share here.
Oh, I also purchased this neat-o t-shirt from TeeFury:
- Because, let’s face it, Dany wears some cool duds: What Would Khaleesi Wear?
- Another Khaleesi Tumblr page
- You haven’t made it until there are Memes featuring your character – Game of LOLs – Khaleesi-specific portion of page
- A Tumblr dedicated to Khaleesi and Khal Drago – My sun and stars
- Game of Thrones Fandom page about Dany
I will say – I haven’t been this excited about a specific literary character since Lisbeth in the Millennium trilogy.
