Women Writers Reading Challenge #53: Uprooted by Naomi Novik

IMG_3023

I have had a huge run of good luck when it comes to books. I don’t know what it is, but before I’d read the past 8 books or so, I was in a bit of a reading rut. I’d read books, and they’d be good, but not great. I’m hoping that my good book choices last all the way into the new year!

This book was, in a word, amazing. Everything about it was filled with so much wonderful magical detail. The heroine is believable and I was rooting for her the whole time. The magic world was interesting and full of mystery, and there were plenty of twists and turns to keep you occupied. The writing was really good, descriptive, full of the right kinds of details the narrator would notice, and it kept you going right along. In fact, I devoured this book, which means at some point I’ll need to read it again. And I can’t wait.
