A Review of….Uprooted (Magical Readathon #3)


Read: 27 –  28 April

Prompt: Herbology

Title: Uprooted

Author: Naomi Novik

Publisher: Pan Macmillan

COWWT: 19/25 (3 Stars)


Before I get into my review of Uprooted, I just want to make it known that the review (and others like it that may come in the future) is not a criticism of the author and means no disrespect to them they are simply my thoughts on the book that I am reviewing.


Characters: 3

I didn’t really know what to think of the characters. The Dragon  was cold and distant and also a bit controlling at the beginning, only changing for the better near the end, and Agnieszka I thought could have been braver and more…defiant. The romance between the two I didn’t quite understand as  they didn’t really have a lot of chemistry or get along for most of the book, and then suddenly about half-way through romance blossoms between them.


Ooh! Factor:3.5

Not much surprised me in this novel, as I saw most of the events that transpired coming. There were only maybe one or two things that made be frown or raise my eyebrows while my eyes widened.


Writing Style: 4

I actually liked the author’s writing style, which picked up the book a little from the character and Ooh! Factor categories. She wrote in a way that made me feel immersed in the story regardless of the characters within it – I even cried at one point!


World Building: 5

The novel had great world building, and really gave me a sense of place; I could see, hear and feel almost everything in the book.


Tone: 3.5

The tone seemed to change frequently from one to the other throughout the novel, so I couldn’t really grasp at the overall tone of the book.
