Reading Game of Thrones AFTER Watching the Show and Why I Hate Re-reading

I had a bit of a late start to the Game of Thrones TV show. I started to watch when season five was already out, quickly becoming addicted and in desperate need of more Jon Snow.

This suspenseful novel had me completely captivated from the beginning. Set in the late 1800's, it has all the flair of the Gilded Age with a completely shocking… Continue reading The English Wife
