Somehow, I convinced myself that attempting to reread the entire A Song of Ice and Fire series is a splendid and spectacular idea, so here I am! I asked around if anyone would be interested in joining and the people have spoken, so I present to you:
A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE READALONG (the first book, at least 😂)
Are you as excited as I am to read thousands of pages? No? AWESOME! I have to say, I’m doing this for two reasons: to prove to myself that I can do it again, because I read these books a few years ago and everything is hazy and I lowkey think I read them in a dream, and, reason number two, I’m hoping that by rereading them, my sweet friend George will publish the Winds of Winter faster (by faster, I mean in this lifetime). Who said bookish black magic can’t/won’t work?
Aaaaanyway, how are we doing this? Well, I thought forcing people to commit to the entire series is cruel, so for now, we’re reading the first book, A Game of Thrones! If, after we’re done with it, people still want to go on (😂😂😂), I’ll set reading dates for the next books as well 😊
The readalong will start on April 1st! Strap on your reading glasses, tuck yourselves in, because Winter is coming! (or so they say…) I might host some discussion posts as we read along, to discuss theories and opinions and fangirl together, because that’s the entire point of a readalong. I’ll make sure to announce them beforehand 😊
I’m allowing 3 weeks for A Game of Thrones, so the aim is to finish it by April 23rd. However, the timeframe is only for the sake of orientation, you can read as fast or as slowly as you’re comfortable with 😊
I encourage you to post photos, quotes, opinions, questions, edits, discuss at length, because there’s plenty to choose from! Use the tag #asoiafreadalong, so everyone can find each other 😊
And, most importantly, HAVE FUN! 💖
P.S. It’d be hella awesome if you spread the word about this

Prince Gendry AU. The Starks travel to King’s Landing to join their House with the ruling Baratheons, but as a young Arya Stark manoeuvres her way around Southron life, and develops a close friendship with the future king, chaos erupts in the capital and destroys the way of life she knew and loved.
Arya likes her life in Winterfell with only her family and the winter snows around her. But as the royal visit approaches will she find a new friend in the young Prince… Will fate control her or will she make her own fate.
In which Tobho Mott’s appendix changed the course of history… Gendry Waters is tasked with taking a commission to the Red Keep, kicking off a chain of events which changes everything, for better or worse or just plain different.
Robert Baratheon has a son, Eddard Stark has a daughter. The kingdoms are still at bay after a war that happened and to bring peace these two assholes decide its a good idea to force Arya and Gendry to marry. The kids are not happy and it´s a bit of a struggle in this one-shot to actually consummate this holy marriage. Loads of arguing, hatred, angst and of course a little bit of love.
House Martell, Lord of the Sandship, Lord of Sunspear, Prince of Dorne. Salty Dornishmen, with dark eyes, dark hair in ringlets, and olive skin. When the warrior queen Nymeria came with her people to Westeros from Essos, the Martell lands were dwarfed by other dornish houses, Nymeria took Mors Martell, as her husband and the two united all of Dorne under their rule. House Nymeros Martell has reigned since.
