I am notorious for reading multiple books at one time. Well not literally at the same time, I probably would be helping NASA if I had those skills! But I do like to read two books at the same time, one fiction and one non-fiction depending on the mood I am in. I do this because I love to learn, but there are times when I just want to daydream too. Having two different books on the go helps to satisfy both of these cravings if you will. So whenever you visit here you'll see a mixed bag of books, which I hope you can take something from.
The Wise Man's Fear - Patrick Rothfuss
Where to begin! I love this book so much! It's an epic 1000 plus page read that restored my energy and enthusiasm for fiction. Actually that's a lie, the first book in this series The Name of the Wind restored my energy and this one has kept it running since!
Now you may not think you like fantasy, but did you enjoy Harry Potter? Have you heard of His Dark Materials? Or perhaps you've read a little Terry Pratchett before you became a wealthy banker? Well this is up there with all of those, yet more like the real world than the others. So if you think Harry is a little too childish for you, then this is the adult version that you will enjoy.
Basically it's an epic story about a ginger who happens to be a ladies man without realising. If that doesn't convince you to read it then I don't know what will!
