    You forgot the romance of Samwell and Gilly! They are so sweet! (Perspective from show only-have only read part of one book!!)

      Sam is such a sweetie.

    I just heard your episode of “What Should I Read Next?” and wanted to thank you for the *Theft of Swords* recommendation. It is now on my Want to Read list at Goodreads. I haven’t heard your podcast yet, but I had to recommend The Ringer.com’s podcast “Binge Mode” for Game of Thrones. It’s funny, factual and covers every single episode of the show. Have a great day, y’all!

      Ooo we’ll definitely have to check out that podcast! Thank you!
