Did you feel lost? Did you feel empty?
Did you feel all the weight calling you, to be some thing?

Did have love? The kind that's substantial?
The kind that went down the rabbit trails to keep you safe?

Cause darling I know it's a big hard world
And hurt flows like rivers coursing through or veins like purpose
Darlin I know that you're just a girl
Whose heart needs a fortress, not a place in a hopeless fight
Come back to life

Did you want love? The kind that's fulfilling? 
Because I know being a poster child, will dry you out.

Do you want freedom? Cause I know kingdom
That can give it all to you free of charge

The Name Of The Wind: Kvothe by Dave Connis

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. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me' So begins the tale of Kvothe - currently known as Kote, the unassuming innkeepter - from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, through his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. In these pages you will come to know Kvothe the notorious magician, the accomplished thief, the masterful musician, the dragon-slayer, the legend-hunter, the lover, the thief and the infamous assassin. The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best, and an astounding must-read title.

 A cross between the iconic '80s movie Sixteen Candles and the classic coming-of-age novel Looking for Alaska, Eleanor & Park is a brilliantly written young adult novel.
