I'm having a hard time reading and listening to A Song of Ice and Fire because I've already seen Game of Thrones on TV through to season 4. I might've ruined the books and subsequently I feel the books aren't as good as the TV series and aren't grabbing my attention. It's redundant reading A Song of Ice and Fire especially when I've seen and loved the first 10 episodes already. UGH! I'm sad :(.
Anyway here are a couple quotes and TEASERS from A Song of Ice and Fire.
"When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground."-pg. 488 Cersei to Lord Eddard Stark.
I am the blood of the dragon, she told herself as she took the stallion's heart in both hands, lifted it to her mouth, and plunged her teeth into the tough, stringy flesh. - pg 489
