I just read "Uprooted" by Naomi Novik and it pretty much blew me away. It didn't go where I thought it would, which made it a lot better, and it was a wild ride.
I know, I'm late to the party.
Naomi Novik is an amazing storyteller! I've really enjoyed all her books, and if you haven't, check out her Temeraire series. So good 🙂
Along those same lines, if you haven't already, you could try Madeline Miller. I just finished reading 'Circe' and every sentence feels like an artform. It was beautiful and engaging.
