A Deadly Education

Novik, Naomi
Lesson one of The Scholomance. So Galadriel is a student at this place called, you guessed it, The Scholomance. It is a school for magicians. With no apparent staff. And no one can leave, mostly, until they graduate. Which isn't a given as there are tons of "mals" trying to kill them. I like the character, I'll be looking forward to the next book.

Spinning Silver

Novik, Naomi
A Hugo nominee for 2019. Pretty good story, a version of Rumpelstiltskin. I got lost more than twice, 'cause sometimes I couldn't figure out which character was speaking for a few pages!

Uprooted

Novik, Naomi
Hard to describe. A girl is unexpectedly selected to serve the magician "ruler" of their valley. But it's more complicated than that, and there are many twists and turns along the way. Great book, but didn't care for the smoochie parts. At least there were only a couple of those.
