Wednesday Words: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms


Happy Hump Day! I was planning on writing a flash fiction yesterday, but post-cruise vertigo was on me strong, so my mind wasn't anywhere near ready for thinking. But Wednesdays are easy! They are the days I have set aside to share with you all what I'm reading or writing.


For Christmas, my awesome cousin bought me GRRM's A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, the complete series of The Hedge Knight, based on Ser Duncan the Tall. She also bought me the second graphic novel, so I have to buy the first. lol

Using Random.org to choose a page for me, I will share with you all a piece of this so far great book. There are 355 pages, and Random has chosen page 221.

His own shield was on his left arm, the shield Tanselle had painted with his elm and falling star. The old shield rhyme echoed in his head. <Oak and iron, guard me well, or else I'm dead, and doomed to Hell.>

What are you reading?

  1. I watch Game of Thrones, but I've never read any of Martin's books.

  2. Nice voice in that excerpt. I just finish two books and am between, but not to worry. I'll pick up something soon.
