The Adventures of the Princess and Mr Whiffle: The Thing Beneath the Bed by Patrick Rothfuss

This twisted fairy tale is book to be treasured. The simple act of flipping through this picture book for adults will bring a smile to your face as you draw comfort from memories of the first picture book you ever read. However unlike those stories this one doesn’t end with happily ever after, instead you get to see the Princess for who she truly is. If on the other hand you like everything rainbows and gum drops stop at the first ending, what comes after will surely be devastating.

Patrick Rothfuss

The Name of the Wind, Day 1 of The KingKiller Chronicles. The name of this book and the series is what drew my attention however the world, characters, and story is what made me an avid fan. The Name of the Wind is the story of Kvothe, one man with many names and who knows the true names of things. This is his story of how he became who he is: Kvothe the Bloodless, Kvothe the Arcane, and Kvothe the KingKiller and what power there is in names.
