Thursday Thoughts: Too much of a good thing…

I’ve been plodding along in the third installment of the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin all day and almost forgot to post something for Thursday Thoughts.  I am still enjoying the series, but I am also starting to look forward to next month’s new theme.   I think this is a case of too much of a good thing, having the first three books ready and waiting to be read.  Or perhaps it is just with the type of books these are that is making me long for a good fluffy chick-lit read.  Have no doubt, the writing is excellent, the twists and turns intriguing, and I am still thoroughly hooked on this series. But….  I am also getting tired of all the violence and stress and characters being killed off or receiving no justice when they are wronged.  Granted some of the ‘bad’ guys are starting to receive some hard knocks as well, but reading of war is not pleasant.  I think it is affecting my mood a bit.  After A Storm of Swords I am going to take a break.  I will most likely pick the series up again, but I am in desperate need of a happy ending…
