Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik

Publication Date: July 10th, 2018

Goodreads 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 didn’t even know that Naomi Novik had another book coming out. I’ve read that this novel is not related to Uprooted despite the covers being very similar. The concept of this book sounds awesome. I’m very interested in seeing how people will try and exploit Miryem’s ability, and I’m even more interested in exploring Miryem’s character. 

What’s your most anticipated book?

  1. I haven’t read Uprooted, but I keep hearing amazing things about it… I’ll have to read it at some point, haha. This cover really is similar to the Uprooted one, I’m getting the same vibes from it overall? I agree with you, the concept of that one sounds awesome! Hope you’ll get to read it and will love it, Lois! ❤

    1. I had mixed feelings about Uprooted, but it was still an enjoyable read overall. The cover for this book is a beauty and, as always I have to fight the temptation to buy it for that reason alone haha.
