Ah yes, the old "I don't agree with fanfiction morally (because I'm scared someone will do a better job of writing my characters than me)" line. It worked out so well for Anne Rice!

The thing with the books is that GRRM originally only intended for it to be a trilogy. And by the time you hit book 4, it shows. My suggestion is to just stick with the first 3 books, otherwise you will inevitably feel that you're reading the others out of a sense of begrudging obligation. I know I did.
