Happy book birthday to A Dance with Dragons! The 5th installment of A Song of Ice and Fire was published on this day (July 12) in 2011. Since then, readers have been anxiously anticipating the 6th book, The Winds of Winter. George has recently stopped predicting when he will be finished, leaving us readers feeling sad and unsatisfied (especially after the series finale of the HBO hit tv show A Game of Thrones.

Although I’m starting to lose hope that the next installment (and furthermore the series) will ever be published, I have not lost my love of the story. To celebrate this book’s birthday, here are some of my favourite quotes from A Dance with Dragons.
