I had planned on writing about the fun weekend I had by myself, browsing my favorite bookstore and reading and eating whatever I wanted, but I’m not feeling so well so I’m just going to make this quick.
The Name of the Wind // by Patrick Rothfuss
Told in Kvothe’s own voice, this is the tale of the magically gifted young man who grows to be the most notorious wizard his world has ever seen.
The intimate narrative of his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-ridden city, his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, and his life as a fugitive after the murder of a king form a gripping coming-of-age story unrivaled in recent literature.
A high-action story written with a poet’s hand, The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece that will transport readers into the body and mind of a wizard.
Why did I choose this:
I usually read this book once a year so when I heard some other people were doing a buddy read, most of them already having read it before, I decided to tag along. It’s my favorite book so I love an excuse to read it again.
I’m loving it as always but this is actually the first time I am really taking my time with it. Since I now have two copies of it, I’m even highlighting some of the lines I love or that make me laugh or cry or affect me in any other way. It’s just such an amazing book to me.
I miss little teeny crinkletail. That’s all I got today. I did a good job finishing up lose ends lately and am really only reading a single book right now. Crazy. I know. I hope you all have an excellent Sunday night and start to the new week!
