As a general rule, we prefer that people avoid spoiling major plot points when discussing books here on F&B (or stories in other media). This is particularly true for topics with a broad subject matter, like "What are you currently reading?".

Remember that you can hide spoilers using the [spoiler][/spoiler] tags. Anything written inside those tags will only be revealed by clicking the text on the spoiler panel. (And you can add what work you are spoiling by using the format [spoiler=Game of Thrones][/spoiler].)

Some topics obviously will not require you to hide spoilers, like book club discussions. Other cases may be dubious. A discussion on how magic works within a specific series may require spoilers to make sense, for example. In cases like this, try to make a judgement call—keeping in mind that it's better to be safe than sorry.
