Flavia from FlaviaTheBibliophile and I are so excited to share Backlist Blast with you.
We were chatting about how backlist books (books that have been released for more than 6 months) don’t get enough attention! So we wanted to create a meme everyone could join and share their favourite books that are not new releases. Hopefully this will help everyone tackle those books that have been waiting patiently on our TBRs for months and months or to just chat about older books! Join us and comment on our posts with your links so we can come see! Or tag us on social media. Check out the Info Page Flavia has put together for more details.
Please note, you do not have to participate every week we want this to be fun and a way to read some of those books you’ve been waiting to read.
MY NAME IS KVOTHE
I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.
You may have heard of me.
So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature–the story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man’s search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.
I waited way too long to read this book, as in years too long. Just re-reading my review for this book has me remembering Kvothe and how much I loved being in this world. There’s a very specific feeling I get thinking about Name of the Wind, a very let’s have a pint of ale in a tavern while listening to an older character recite the story of his life kind of feel. I’m so happy I read Name of The Wind and it earned its spot on my favourites shelf.
