I am so lucky to have owned and known this literature. I can’t imagine how I managed to linger this long as a bibliophile without knowing A Song of Ice and Fire. Perhaps it was destined to be, to encounter and feel passionate about this book series in my twenties :) The books will continue to keep me hungry for more, that I know that for sure.

Tiny moments I appreciate: The heartwrenching song “The Rains of Castamere”; Daenerys’ duplicitous self-reflections (she projects a persona as queen but is still a fragile girl inside); Arya’s getting more badass than ever, Jamie’s unraveling (he is surprisingly not as bad as people thought); Tyrion’s "I’ve been in trial all my life for being a dwarf" line and Sansa’s "My skin has turned from porcelain to ivory to steel" line; all the unexpected sex and violence in the least likely yet perfectly inserted chapters; Sansa’s final chapter and the epilogue that followed :p
