Uprooted Booted


Shoe designs by love2read365 inspired by the book Uprooted, written by Naomi Novik.

UprootedCoverI was re-reading the Harry Potter series this summer, and was really concerned that whatever I read afterwards would be a huge letdown. However, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Naomi Novik’s Uprooted. The book was receiving quite a lot of hype, so I was cautious about it at first. But the book was a wonderful read. It was so magical and lovely. I didn’t always know where the story was going either, so that was refreshing. Sometimes I felt like there were gaps in plot or explanations, so sometimes I had to read things over to understand what was going on, but that didn’t detract from my overall enjoyment of the book. There were interesting characters (although not always totally fleshed out). I appreciated the great portrayal of female friendship. Despite two of the main characters’ moments of jealousy of each other, they truly care about one another and remain loyal. I wanted to race to the end of the book to see what would happen, but then I was sad that it ended. I think readers who enjoyed Kristin Cashore’s Graceling would also enjoy this novel.

A while back, I commented on a line of footwear that was (supposedly) inspired by classic American literature. Since the final product was so watered down, I created a few of my own shoe designs for classic novels.

I love drawing shoes. Check out a design I came up with for Andy Weir’s novel, The Martian here. Here you’ll find a design for Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus. I even created a shoe based on the children’s book classic, Chicka Chicka ABC here
