Why we're excited: As if the promise of yet another A-plus season weren't enough, the Game of Thrones producers have long cited book three as one of the top reasons they wanted to adapt the series for television to begin with. If that's not enough to get you excited, then there's also Jon Snow's capture alongside Mance Raydor, Daenerys Targaryen's impending arrival in Westeros with her badass dragons, and the fate of Peter Dinklage's Tyrion to keep you satisfied, until part one (the third book will be split across two seasons) of season three reaches that Earth-shattering moment that compels fans to unanimously name A Storm of Swords as their favorite book.
