the name of the wind

Patrick Rothfuss

"Her lips were always red, morning and night. As if minutes before you saw her, she had been eating sweet berries, or drinking heart's blood." Patrick Rothfuss is a magician with words. This novel sucked me in like a vortex, and wouldn't let me come up for air until I had devoured it in its entirety. Wise words wrapped with beautiful descriptions are thrown around in the story, allowing your whole heart to be invested into each character's life. This may be my favorite book I've ever read. The kind of book that allows you to believe in magic. Magic in music, magic in love, and magic in words.
