Right now, I'm working through Science of the Magical, which looks at the miraculous events in history and mythology and sees if it could have been possible. It's a really easy and enjoyable read so far (I'm nearing the end).
"I am not sure whether George R.R. Martin is aware of it, but in his Song of Ice and Fire saga, known on television as Game of Thrones, he is carrying on Norse mythology when he leads Brandon Stark to his destiny with a raven. What is particularly interesting is that Bran always sees and follows the raven in his dreams while he is in the form of a wolf."
This might seem like a literature analysis, but it's actually part of a chapter on the relationship between ravens and wolves, and if the Norse myths could be, in fact, based on things observed in nature.
What is your Teaser Tuesday?
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
