GAME OF THRONES (SEASON 4, EPISODE 3 – BREAKER OF CHAINS)
Following the events of the last episode Sansa finally escapes King’s Landing and Tyrion is more alone and friendless than he ever has been. Tywin and Olenna set new gears in motion with a more pliable new King, Arya and her sister both have some lessons to learn about how the world works and Dany at last reaches Mereen. And then.. there was THAT problematic scene. What are you doing Game of Thrones? Where do we go from here..?
I am one of those people who have read the books, and given some of the events in this episode I will talk about the books in the context of how the TV show has made some major changes.. which I do not understand.. and am upset about .. but more on that later! There will be spoilers for this episode, but no future events. Promise!

Book Review : The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line by Rob ThomasMy rating: 5 of 5 stars
My name is Alice, and I am a Marshmallow. There is no getting away from that in this review! (And no spoilers either, I promise!)
The Kickstarter happened, we got our movie – the movie was bloody brilliant– and then it was announced we were also going to get a series of Veronica Mars books. Now, that second piece of news I took with a little more reservation. I’m always a little hesitant about a TV/Movie tie-in books which is not written by the original author. I used to read some of the Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Roswell ones (and Sweet Valley High, ha!) and they weren’t exactly the best. Now, Rob Thomas – our fearless leader – was/is of course a novelist and he loves his characters as much as we do; importantly he still has creative control.. We could trust him to do the right thing, right?
After I saw the movie, I knew I had to have more of Veronica Mars! What the movie did was set her back in place in Neptune, where there was steal a whole heap of mystery and corruption to uncover.. I’m an addict and I needed another hit. The movie was not enough! I immediately pre-ordered the book! After the movie I had much more confidence in the potential of the books, but still when I opened it I was still hoping, with fingers cross.. “please don’t suck, please don’t suck..“
Now to the important question, to which I think you already know the answer to because I gave it 5 stars! – was it any good? Unreserved YES! Yes I loved it, every single page.. which I devoured effortlessly in less than two days.
