  1. I'm having my boyfriend read Game of Thrones first to see if I would like it or not. He is a good judge on if I will like a book or not. :)

    Happy reading! Enjoy your pile of books!

    1. Thank you! I chose the graphic novels over reading other books since Game of Thrones is a large book.
