The Hazel Wood is thoroughly, creepily captivating, with surprises I never saw coming! Such a refreshing and beautifully written inversion of the classic fairy tale-inspired story. Kristin Cashore, award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of the Graceling Realm series This book will be your next obsession. Welcome to the Hazel Wood, where bad luck is a living thing, princesses are doomed, and every page contains a wondrously terrible adventureits not safe inside these pages, but once you enter, you may never want to leave. The Hazel Wood is pure imagination candy. Stephanie Garber, New York Times bestselling author of Caraval

@AmyG ~ you are amazing. I came home from work yesterday to a little package. I didn't remember ordering it but looked at the return address label and smiled. Thank you so much for sending me a book off your shelf! I have some I need/want to do the same with. I'm excited for this one. I'm so glad you're in your new home and happy. 😘❤

AmyG It was such a pleasure to see this on your tbr! I have no room to keep books once I‘ve read them, so I was thrilled to pass this on to you, my friend. Have a wonderful weekend! 😘😘😘 8h

Spent the day organizing my apartment. Trying out the Marie Kondo method. What do you call a reverse book haul? I enjoyed reading them last year but it is time to pass on the joy. These are all the books I am taking in to work tomorrow to let my co-workers take.

My #WeeklyForecast for 01/12/2020 - 01/18/2020.

Still listening to the tagged book on my daily commute. I should finish it this week or next.

With the state legislature in session, I don‘t have as much free time to read, so I‘m hoping this collection of short stories will work for the time I‘ve got.

And of course, my IRL book club read. We all work at the legislature during session, so who knows when we‘ll actually meet to talk about it. 😂

#ThoughtfulThursday

🥂Pretty good so far! The biggest help was getting my antidepressant dosage high enough in late December. 😬 No goals, but my intention is to notice those times I feel “in the flow” more often.

📚The tagged book so that I can listen to the sequel that just came out!!

👉I feel like most have done this already, but if you haven‘t...tag, you‘re it!

MoonWitch94 So glad you are feeling better! I know it can be tough. Thanks for playing ☺️ 1w

The world the author created was wonderful and the book had a lot of room and potential to really wow the readers.

But it didn‘t. Instead the book rambled on about the protagonist‘s though process before she spoke and after she spoke that the book was over before anything real and concrete happened.

If you want to read a book just for the sake of reading it, you can choose this one. You will in no way benefit from finishing this title.

This was a really good read for me. Almost too slow for me at the start. But picked up nicely. Completely that "I'm missing something..." feeling. Because if the pacing it would give this book a 3.75/5 stars???⭐

I'm almost half way through the book and I am so happy that it got a turn it needed to keep me reading the story. I might be able to finish the book tonight!! Will decide once done if I'm going to pick up the next book really soon or some time next year.

I‘m giving this a pick, even though my enthusiasm is a bit lacking. I‘m into the concept: meta fairy tale, a la a dark Neverending Story. But it did feel very YA (read: angry and angsty), which I think I could‘ve tolerated/overlooked more if I had read the book. The narrator for the audiobook had teen angst dripping from every sentence, whether or not it was warranted. That made this book difficult for me to enjoy; not the story itself.

Reached Chapter 4 of the book. This is actually the first book where it feels good to take my time reading it

MUST READ!!

I loved this story so much!! There is fantastically creepy magic and good writing. I was sucked in pretty much immediately and I just can't get enough of The Hinterland. This reads fast and easy, but feels super complex and heavy in the best of ways. The world building is sly and super, with magical pieces dripping in here and there through the pages. This is a seriously hugable book and I CAN NOT WAIT to get my hands on the sequel!!

Holy crap I am LOVING this book. I can‘t get enough and I both want to know the end and never want to finish. Sooooo good!!

cherinium I love books that make me feel that way! It may be why I love getting caught up in a great series...things get somewhat wrapped up, yet there's so much more to come! 3mo

Y‘all gonna have to bear with me. I just had the most exciting book haul. I found books I‘ve been looking for already, memoirs (my obsession), additions to series I‘ve started, and even a HP coloring book. All together 27 books for $26.something only! I‘ll be posting some pictures of my favorite finds! #goodwill

I was drawn in from the beginning and couldn‘t put the book down; but like...shit got dark real fast. I kind of feel like she threw me a curve ball that I didn‘t see coming and she threw it with seriously the turn of the page. So alright, I can handle that but now where are we going? Oh somewhere darker still. Cool cool.
I‘m conflicted and I don‘t know how I should feel! What am I supposed to do with these feelings? Feelings are yucky!
