Time for another episode of Can’t Wait Wednesday, sponsored by Wishful Endings!
Last time I talked about how I can’t wait for Daughter of the Pirate Queen, and guess what came in the mail yesterday!!
Now the book I’m really excited for and CANNOT WAIT for is Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik.
Summary: Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders… but her father isn’t a very good one. Free to lend and reluctant to collect, he has loaned out most of his wife’s dowry and left the family on the edge of poverty–until Miryem steps in. Hardening her heart against her fellow villagers’ pleas, she sets out to collect what is owed–and finds herself more than up to the task. When her grandfather loans her a pouch of silver pennies, she brings it back full of gold.
But having the reputation of being able to change silver to gold can be more trouble than it’s worth–especially when her fate becomes tangled with the cold creatures that haunt the wood, and whose king has learned of her reputation and wants to exploit it for reasons Miryem cannot understand.
I loved Naomi Novik’s Uprooted so much, and I’m excited for another fantasy in this style by her! Too bad the expected publication isn’t until July 10th of this year. That’s so far awayyyyy!
I do have the first few books in her Temeraire series, so I suppose I could read those while I wait, haha. What about you? Have you read anything by Naomi Novik? Is there a book you’re just dying for?
