Waiting on Wednesday: The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert
Publisher: Flatiron Books
Publication date: 01/30/2018
Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice’s life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice’s grandmother, the reclusive author of a cult-classic book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate, the Hazel Wood, Alice learns how bad her luck can really get: Her mother is stolen away―by a figure who claims to come from the Hinterland, the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother's stories are set. Alice's only lead is the message her mother left behind: “Stay away from the Hazel Wood.”

Alice has long steered clear of her grandmother’s cultish fans. But now she has no choice but to ally with classmate Ellery Finch, a Hinterland superfan who may have his own reasons for wanting to help her. To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother's tales began―and where she might find out how her own story went so wrong.
I don't know about you but this book sounds like it's going to take us on one heck of an adventure. The early reviews are really good!

So this is my pick. What are you waiting for?


  1. I'm so excited for this one as well! It looks fantastic, and I'm loving the cover. Great pick!

  2. First off, COVER LOVE! Now then, the story sounds truly amazing as well. Definitely have to add it to my "watch" list. Thanks for the heads up!

  3. I think this sounds great! I'd not really heard of it until recently, when a friend of mine was looking for an ARC. And that beautiful cover doesn't hurt! I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Tina. =)
