Game of Thrones Season 7 Survival Guide

We’re officially t minus 10 days away from the season seven premiere of HBO’s Game of Thrones on July 16th, and I couldn’t be more ecstatic!  It’s been 375 days since the final episode of season six aired, which is an atrocity in and of itself, leading to widespread withdrawal among viewers.  Don’t even get me started on the unfortunate fact that there are only two abbreviated seasons remaining.

8

I have a book buying addiction, and I cannot lie.  Particularly when it comes to acquiring books at a significantly faster rate than I can read them.  Death by ominously towering TBR pile appears exceedingly imminent at the moment and certainly would not come as a shock.  I use TBRing as a verb – that’s often the first indicator of a problem adorably cute bookish habit that all readers should partake in.

In case the title doesn’t give it away, this is a new feature on Brewing Up Books: book reviews from a movie watcher (aka, non-reader). Here’s how it will go. I receive a summary and cover of a book that I have never seen or heard of previously (which could be a lot of possibilities).  I then review the book based solely on these two criteria and…attempt to recount the plot. I will be completely wrong. 100% wrong.
