Uprooted by Naomi Novik is my favorite fiction for the year, and up in my top five overall. I haven’t enjoyed a book as much as this one since I found the New Orleans Sentinels series. It is a fantasy book involving wizards and set in some unknown land and unknown time, similar to medieval Poland. This is because the author’s inspiration for the book is based on Polish fairy tales, and in a way it is Grimm esk. I feel like there’s not a good way to talk about how awesome this book is without giving something key away. So I’ll end by just saying if you like Harry Potter, fantasy, Grimm fairy tales, or historical fiction, you will love this book.
