Here is the summary from Westeros.orgBOOK TO SCREENThe episode covers elements from the following chapters: The Sacrifice (ADwD), The Watcher (ADwD), Mercy (TWoW), and Daenerys IX (ADwD)The Sacrifice (ADwD): What we see on the show is not directly in the novels, but draws heavily on this chapter as it depicts Stannis’s desperate forces as a snowstorm leaves them with rapidly dwindling supplies and mounting losses from the environment. The northerners in his host—omitted on...
Arya gave her first gift without being distracted. It was actually confusing and some slight of hand that took care of it. I had to read it twice to figure out exactly the mechanics. She also wore a different face to accomplish the task. Ser Meryn isn't in Braavos.Jon didn't go to Hardhome, but the Night's Watch returned with very few free folk and Jon let them through the wall to the chagrin of many. Stannis left a garrison, including Queen Selyse, Princess Shireen,...
Now they've ruined Stannis. And, if you though a fight scene couldn't have been worse than the Snadsnakes versus Bronn and Jaime, this week topped it. Holy shit that was bad. And there were no honeyed and spiced locusts. I'll watch next week out of sport, but I think I'm done.

It seems he'll get Winds of Winter to the publisher after the next season is complete - it may be published by Christmas 2016. Unless they keep the show going until 2022, there's no chance the last book will precede the final season of the show.
My predictions for final two episodes - includes book spoilers and extrapolation: [[SPOILER]]
They started making the characters play to type at the beginning of season 2 when they switched Robb and Cat's lines. In the book she said she needed to be with him to give him counsel about the war. Robb said that she should be home to take care of Bran and Rickon. It added to her regret when she learned that Bran and Rickon were "killed." Yet, on the show they made Cat play to type and say - I must go home to Bran and Rickon, they need their mother. And, Robb said,...
Why introduce the prominent Merman pin on the one fat bearded guy at the Red Wedding if Wyman Manderley wasn't going to show up at the Bolton/Stark wedding. I mean, you've got the new Warden of the North's son marrying the daughter of the hereditary Warden and sister of the late King in the North and there are no Freys (other than Fat Walda) much less any Northern Lords.
