On My Wishlist #8

I've come across quite a lot of great books recently but these two are among those that I'm looking forward to. The Edgar Allan Poe references in Nevermore really pique my interest to read more on this book. Though I believe that it is the cover that caught my interest at first. Just look at the way the guy stares at us? Looks creepy!

Title: Nevermore
Author: Kelly Creagh
Series: Not Sure
Genre: Speculative Fiction - Fantasy
Links: Amazon | Book Depository
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Cheerleader Isobel Lanley is horrified when she is paired with Varen Nethers for an English project, which is due—so unfair—on the day of the rival game. Cold and aloof, sardonic and sharp-tongued, Varen makes it clear he’d rather not have anything to do with her either. But when Isobel discovers strange writing in his journal, she can’t help but give this enigmatic boy with the piercing eyes another look. As her world begins to unravel around her, Isobel discovers that dreams, like words, hold more power than she ever imagined, and that the most frightening realities are those of the mind. Now she must find a way to reach Varen before he is consumed by the shadows of his own nightmares. His life depends on it.

I've never really heard of Patrick Rothfuss before. Yes, it's my lost right? I came across this book when I was browsing Goodreads the other day and the description totally blow me away. The second installment of this series will be published soon, if I'm not mistaken, so I really have to get to this one as soon as possible! Have you read this book before? If so, what do you think about it?

Title: The Name of the Wind
Author: Patrick Rothfuss
Series: Kingkiller Chronicle Series
Genre: Speculative Fiction - Fantasy
Synopsis (from B&N):
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.

  11. Hi Shy! Thanks for popping by. To answer your question about my Kindle, I bought it for about RM1,000 including tax and delivery charges. It doesn't deliver to Asia, so I got it delivered to the US and a friend picked it up and gave it to me when he came back to Singapore. I went to Singapore for a conference and picked it up from there.
