Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Happy Memorial Day + three day weekend! I’m so ready for an extra day off. I haven’t felt 100% this week (I seem to have caught a little bug), so I plan on relaxing, practicing photography lots, and reading a bunch. I recently got completely obsessed with Game of Thrones and pretty much ripped through all three and a half seasons in a few weeks, so now that that’s over (sad), I feel like I have a lot of time to catch up on reading I’ve been neglecting. I have lots of books on my TBR list and I can’t wait to start working my way through them…this weekend is the perfect time to do it! Anyone read anything good lately? Also anyone read the Game of Thrones books? I love the HBO series so much that I’m considering reading the books, but they seem a bit daunting. 
Hope you all enjoy the three day weekend!

    I couldn't recommend the GoT books more! I have read all 5 and they are phenomenal, but they are long. It took me almost 2 years to read all five, but so worth it (especially if you're a fan of the show).

      I'm so happy to hear that! Definitely obsessed with the show so I think I may need to read them. Thank you Alex!

    I feel the same way. I've had a sore throat and don't want to do much this weekend. I will go see Spiderman 2, though. Game of Thrones is on my list, but the 3rd season of Once Upon a Time is first up this weekend! Can't wait!

    I recommend the GoT books as well. I haven't watched the series but hear that some parts of the show does veer from the books (probably for pace and to keep the action going). Have a great and restful weekend.

      Thank you, thank you for the recommendation! Everyone who has read them seems to love them, so they must be amazing. Hope you have a great weekend as well!
