This weeks topic is: Books You Want to Read Before the End of the Year
1. Name of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
I'm thinking I might start this in the next round of tome topple....or take it with me on holiday. I usually manage to get an awful lot of reading when on vacation. The Name of the Wind is a tome of a novel narrated by the central character Kvothe. He tells his the story of his life, how he went from merely a gifted young man to one of the most notorious wizards his world had ever seen.
I'm shocked I haven't read this yet. I know I'm going to love it. It has everything I adore. A swoon worthy romance, from what I've heard, sword fights and its inspired by Rome! How could I not adore this?!
I desperately want to watch the TV adaptation for this book. It looks fantastic. I've heard so much about both the book and the series. I've noticed particularly in the YA genre theres a fair few very woman centric dystopias and contemporaries that direct gender and gender roles. I figured I'd better read the book that started this.
