"No," I said stubbornly. "I'm coming with you." Some sense of pride made me unwilling to tell him that I was frightened of being away from him." (pg 266)

I have heard this is a fantastic series of books. And now that I've started reading the first book I have to wonder if people are right. I am really enjoying this first book and the characters. I am obsessed with the TV show and really really pleased with how close the show has stuck with the book. This is a big book but I'm reading through it fairly quickly. Hope you enjoyed the teasers I picked out!
