Hugo Nominee: UPROOTED

US Edition

US Edition

Hi Everyone,

The blog title says it all!

Uprooted has been nominated for a Hugo Award. Count me as one who is not surprised. When I read the book before publication, I knew it to be something special. Naomi has crafted a beautiful and elegant novel. I feel quite strongly it deserves the recognition. I know many of you feel the same way.

The novel is nominated alongside several of my other favorite books of the year. I highly recommend you read them all. They are listed below:

Best Novel (3695 nominating ballots)

Ancillary Mercy by Ann Leckie (Orbit)
The Cinder Spires: The Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher (Roc)
The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin (Orbit)
Seveneves: A Novel by Neal Stephenson (William Morrow)
Uprooted by Naomi Novik (Del Rey)

Congratulations to the nominees! It’s great that Naomi is alongside such talented writers!
