Game of Thrones is back! It's back at a perfect time too, right after the season finale of The Walking Dead. Just when I was wondering, what I was going to do without my Sunday zombie fix, I was reminded that the just as awesome if not slightly more awesome Game of Thrones would take up the Sunday slot. Well, Monday for me, but you get what I mean.

As the fangirl nerd that I am I have also read all the books that have been released in the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin. But I must confess that I wasn't one of those that read it "before it was cool." Nope I went straight for the books after the final episode of season one. I needed to know what happened next, but of course I had to start from the beginning.
So, I know every spoiler and upcoming death of the unsuspecting characters that are coming. I never spoil it for anyone however, because I hate being spoiled myself.
I'm looking forward to quite a few things that are sure to come this season and I'm sure they will shock fans who haven't read the books, as much as I was shocked when I read about them.
I am okay with the fact that the show does it's own thing from time to time since it still maintains the essence and general plot line of the books.
However, I am a bit nervous of what is going to happen if or when the show catches up to the books. Are the writers going to create their own version of what happens next? Will they go on a hiatus? Or will they get an advance copy of the next book from Martin himself? Only time will tell.
Any fellow Game of Thrones and/or Song of Ice and Fire fans out there? Or are you not really into it (how can you NOT be!)? Oh and who is your favorite character thus far?
I'm an Arya Stark fan all the way!
