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 White Queen is the first novel in the Cousin's War series as told from Edward's queen, Elizabeth Woodville.

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.

The Name of the Wind and A Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss. Definitely worth reading!
The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #1) This might be my favorite book of all times. I have read the first two books twice as well as listened to the audio book twice. I also own a first addition lined, signed, and dated. If you have not read it, I truly recommend diving into this series!!
