I started Uprooted, by Naomi Novik. This is book 1 of my 2019 goal of 25 books. I read 27 last year and normally would go for a bigger goal but baby #2 is due in July!

Currently reading Uprooted, by Naomi Novik which is a pretty delightful fairytale.

I finished re-reading Uprooted by Naomi Novik, and just started re-reading Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik.

Finished: Uprooted, by Naomi Novik. I think the first half was better than the second, and I was also a bit irritated with some of the characters, but overall it was a fun read.

Started: Happy Sally, by Sara Stridsberg. Haven't read a book in Swedish for a while, hope this one is good.

I started Uprooted, by Naomi Novik. I’m enjoying it so far, it’s a fast-paced book.

Uprooted by Naomi Novik was such a charming little read. I kept saying last chapter and would immediately start the next one. Characters were great, story was interesting and not too predictable. It was a great light read.

Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han I found the first two books in the trilogy darling and the best of guilty pleasures and the third had it's moments but it was definitely the weakest of the three.

Glorious Heresies by Lisa McInerney. It was dark, funny, and darkly funny. I loved how all the characters stories interwove but I must admit the chronology confused me and it took me a little while to get into but once I was there it was a page turner.

I've not started anything yet but I am choosing between The Omnivore' s Dilemma by Michael Pollan which has been on my to read pile for 6 years or trying for a second time to read The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera.

The Farthest Shore by Ursula Le Guin. Book 3 of Earthsea and probably my least favourite so far though I did enjoy it. I just couldn't bond with the main character but the plot kept me going because the story itself was intense and expansive despite the short length of the book

Tehanu by Ursula Le Guin. Book 4 and I loved it so much. I was hesitant after book 3 but it was probably my favourite of the 4. It was lovely to catch back up with my favourite character from the first trilogy and to delve into everyday life of the mostly everyday citizen of Earthsea.

I'm 50 pages off of finishing Uprooted by Naomi Novik. This has been an utterly charming read. Every time I get to the end of a chapter I find myself immediately starting the next one.

Uprooted by Naomi Novik

I feel disappointed in Uprooted. The protagonist, while not a doormat and made decisions for herself, had everything work out. She gets power ups for magic like a deus ex machina. She astounded old wizards while she had no experience with magic beforehand. It just felt really forced. The plot just happened.

The romance felt shoehorned. It would've been better if the focus was on friendship. It was just so sudden. I get that lust happens but it just felt too sudden. No chemistry, no build-up at all.

I just feel disappointed that I bought this book.

Currently nearly halfway through Uprooted, by Naomi Novik.

This book appealed to me because it told its story in a single volume, unlike most of the same genre. The writing is quite simple, much like that of an old fairy-tale... but don't let that fool you! There is plenty of tension and excitement to go around an entire kingdom.

Probably read something like 5 entire books in my entire life but for some reason, i got on itch for reading right now, so i searched for some good fantasy books and here i am.

Finished The Emperor's Soul by Brandon Sanderson in two days roughly, absolutely loved it (the magical stamps, Ashravan's underwhelming reign and the relationship between Shai & Gaotona), it was truly a pleasure.

It pushed me to keep on reading and i'm currently halfway through Uprooted by Naomi Novik, it's been fun so far, the main character's personality is a bit all over the place sometimes but the adventure (especially the mystery around the Wood) is rather enthralling.

Uprooted, by Naomi Novik -- fucking charming
The Man Who Turned Into a Stick and other plays, by Kobo Abe -- strange and more than a little depressing

Now reading Someone's dead already: poems, by Tongo Eisen-Martin.
