Uprooted by Naomi Novik

Uprooted is one of my all-time favourite books. The story and characters and amazing and incredible and it's definitely a must read!I usually only read and review YA, but for Uprooted I gladly make an exception!

I was so interested in the book, it didn’t really matter that it wasn’t YA. It took me a long time to finish, and a lot of determination at first, but Uprooted has turned out to be one of my favourite books I’ve read for far this year.
