Teaser Tuesday - A Game of Thrones

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following: 
Grab your current read, Open to a random page, Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page, avoid Spoilers.

My Teaser is from George R. R. Martin's A song of Fire and Ice series, Book 1: A Game of Thrones.
I am re-reading this for the Flashback Challenge, and so looking forward to the entire series too.

Tuesday Teaser:

"And then there was movement beside the bed, and something landed lightly on his legs. He felt nothing.

A pair of yellow eyes looked into his own, shining like the sun. The window was open and it was cold in the room, but the warmth that came off the wolf enfolded him like a hot bath. His pup, Bran realized . . .or was it? He was so big now. He reached out to pet him, his hand trembling like a leaf.

When his brother Robb burst into the room, breathless from his dash up the tower steps, the direwolf was licking Bran's face. Bran looked up calmly. "His name is Summer," he said."

Let me know which book is in your hands today - I would love to know! Leave a note as you drop by.
Pin It!

  4. Song of Fire and Ice is the best fantasy series I have read.

    I think it is time for me to pull out the entire series from the bookshelf and re-read them. :-)

  18. Deepali - thanks for stopping by The Wormhole. You asked how to keep track of all the potential reads. I started keeping a wish list on amazon just for books I hear about on blogs. I open a window for the blog and one for amazon and then I can add to my "blog wish list" as I learn about books I might like to read. I also have a notebook that I had started writing all the books in - but I like the wish list better. Good Luck - Happy Reading.

  20. @Beverly, that is good idea! I do have a wishlist that I keep so my husband knows what to get me, but I don't update it nearly enough, and never from blogs! Will take the suggestion :)
