So, after [personal profile] zombieallomorph 's post with the quote from Naomi Novik' "Uprooted", I immediately bought it. And it's awesome. I started it yesterday at about 8 pm and couldn't stop reading until I finished it at 4 am. I loved the magic system (though the magic word did sound a bit ridiculous to me at times, but that's always a danger of inventing spells) and I freaking loved the Wood. I love it when the bad/evil things in a book are so present and actually dangerous. Also, the Corruption is a great way to keep the tension between the characters high and adds a horror layer to the Wood. Especially since we see how horrible it is.

Cut for spoilery talk )

In other news, my leg is starting to feel almost like before the break. It's still missing strength, but I can feel how it becomes stronger every week. Also, I might start a voluntary social year soon. I'm excited.
