The White Queen by Philippa Gregory. This is a historical fiction about Elizabeth Woodville, or Queen Elizabeth. The War of the Roses, or The Cousins' War, was a very tumultous time when two factions were battling for control of the throne of England. Elizabeth was a fascinating woman who was truly in love with her husband, the king, and who was stoic and even defiant in the face of adversity. I think most people will probably remember her as the mother of the two princes in the tower whose fate has never been confirmed. I absolutely loved this book and was inspired to learn more about that fascinating time.

The Name of the Wind (Kingkiller Chronicles, Day 1) by Patrick Rothfuss
The Name Of The Wind, Patrick Rothfuss. Wonderful story. It's like Harry Potter for grown ups! <3
A book worth reading - I couldn't put it down! It has been a long time since I have felt so attached to a main character!!
The Name of the Wind (Kingkiller Chronicles Series #1) This was recommended to me by a woman standing in line at the National Book Festival. It is over a 1,000 pages long but an excellent read for those who like fantasy. Book 2 is out - The Wise Man's Fear and book 3 is due out next year under the working title of The Doors of Stone. As of 5/14 still no number 3. Still waiting!
"I only know one story. But oftentimes small pieces seem to be stories themselves." The Name of the Wind, Patrick Rothfuss. My new favorite book! Everyone should read it, especially @Amber Hitchcock
