Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik

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.


Start Date: August 1st, 2018

I was bad and started it a little early, but I'm not very far in yet. It's good so far!

I'm enjoying this one! My only complaint is that you'll go from section to section and it'll change characters and it takes a good minute to realize who it's talking about.

Brandy | 2535 comments I hate that. Makes the story harder to follow.


Jessica Foster | 64 comments I finally got the book from the library!!Yay! Only 50 pages in! I agree the switching POVs takes a minute each time to figure out! Does the road move?

Lindsay (linds0917) | 136 comments I'm not very far into this but I already really like it! It seems to be what I wanted The Bear and the Nightingale to be.


Jessica Foster | 64 comments Ok I was really getting into the book 50% of the way in and my overdrive loan expired! Oh no 🤦🏻‍♀️
