So I just got into the Game of Thrones right before the season 2 premeier, got caught up, and now that season 2 is over, I'd like to read the books, but I do not want to read past where the show is (I know I'm weird.)

I know that there are many big differences in the books, but could someone please tell me where the best stopping point would be, if you were to compare the timeline with Season 2?

Like which book, or chapter, or w/e?

Thanks :)
