    Feast is always controversial - people either love it or hate it! Dance is a great book too. A lot of people hate the Daenerys chapters and I have to admit, the first time around I did too but having read through them again I enjoyed them a lot more.

    A Feast for Crows definitely has a different feel to it a lot of the time, but i liked it a lot. So far Iím liking Dance with Dragons a little less, but itís still enjoyable.

    I heard A Feast for Crows is basically just a filler book and was told to skip it altogether.

    if they'd actually included that in the show it would've redeemed S6-8 and don't pretend like you wouldn't love to see your girl emilia acting that out

    You heard wrong. Also, as an Arya fan you can find out why the show version is a terrible and one dimensional and the book character is actually good and interesting.

    I guess I itís only filler insomuch as which characters you care about. Feast and Dance cover roughly the same time period, but one book focuses more on the south, and the other book focuses more on the North and Danaerys. I guess Feast doesnít have all the bombshells like the book before either.

    I've been meaning to ask Jinx something.

    (SPOILER)How did you feel when Arya killed Littlefinger?

    Ever since we got our puppy, my reading has slowed down a lot. She wakes up super early, and I find myself struggling to stay awake as I read. So for a while, I can generally just get a chapter a day.

    Anyways, Iím a little over halfway through A Dance With Dragons. I will say that itís not holding my attention as well as the other books, but I am enjoying seeing a lot of the differences from the show.

    Iíve now finished A Dance with Dragons, and Iím finally with everyone else in waiting for the rest of the series to come out.

    I think I just donít really care that much about most of the Meereen stuff until the end. I still enjoyed reading the book, but I think it is my least favorite of the bunch. Normally the books that are mostly setting things up for the endgame donít bother me, so I canít fully put my finger on what fully bothers me. Itís probably just because I usually read a series after all books are already out, so I usually donít have to wait for the payoff.

    Glad you finished it and relatively enjoyed it!

    I think most people hate Meereen. This essay series gave me a new perspective on it and might be worth your time having a read: https://meereeneseblot.wordpress.com...d-the-locusts/

    Basically from the pit onward is where Iím more okay with the Meereen plot line. I pretty much already thought about and agreed with the stuff in that article as I was reading. The Shavepate is who I pretty much think did the poisoning. Iíd also like to note just how much Barristan says he isnít interested in nor does he have the ability to play the game of thrones. He also mentions how those of the Kingsguard who have involved themselves in the game are only met with misfortune if I remember correctly. Either way, I feel heíd be easy to manipulate in this scenario where he is feeling completely lost.

    My main problem is that I donít really care for the characters in Meereen, nor do I really care for the politics there. Thatís not to say I wonít grow to like the plot line, but currently it was more setting things up to the more interesting events that Iím sure will happen in Winds of Winter.

    The shame about them rushing through the series was to set themselves up for future things, like the next star wars. But due to the backlash they got for rushing the ending, they were dropped from those future projects.

    The delicious karma.
