Lite sci-fi that is exceptionally written, Patrick Rothfuss' "King Killer" series won't disappoint. The only hard part about these books is that the 3rd and final book of the series is still not published. ARRRGGGG! (that's Pirate for "WTF!!!!")
I've been giving both books to friends and family for a few different reasons. One is to all my pregnant friends...so yes, as a baby shower gift. WHY?!?! Because I can't bring myself to buy diaper bags or breast pumps. And also, because first time parents have down time in between feedings and diaper changes and might want to read something instead of posting selfies on IG. Or it's because they are pregnant and are on mandated rest. I also am giving it to friends as Christmas gifts, birthday gifts...because I know they are huge GoT fans and these books are even better. So far they've been a HIT. I've gotten a few messages that not only have they finished the books but that they are salivating for the third and final book to the series. Yes! Success.
