#Friday reads (10)


I know I was supposed to upload this yesterday but it just slipped my mind! 

Yesterday I started a new book and it was The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I received this book for Christmas but it is so big I couldn't just start reading it right away so I waited until now because I knew I would have a lot more free time to really dedicate myself to it.

Here is the synopsis (from Goodreads)


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.

I've only read 30 pages so I don't have much to say right now. Nevertheless, I'm really excited about this book because people have been raving it and saying it is great. Hopefully I'll be able to read it in a week and as soon as I'm done with it I'll post my review here.

Oiço maravilhas desta livro mas ainda não me aventurei nele pois, tal como tu dizes, ele é enorme! Tanto que tive de o colocar num top que fiz recentemente de livros intimidantes. Vou estar atenta à tua leitura:D Beijos
