I decided to start reading this series after watching the amazing adaptation that HBO recently filmed. Game of Thrones is the first in a series of fantasy books that are set in a mythical region full of kingdoms that are all vying for power. The television show was a really accurate and well done series, but I would definitely recommend reading the books if you’re looking for fuller explanations of what is happening or if you’re just itching for more. I have never been a fan of fantasy books but Game of Thrones is a lot more focused on political intrigue and drama rather than magic and fighting. Definitely check this series out if you enjoy political dramas or light fantasy.
