MAGICAL, MESMERISING AND INVENTIVE. -- Karen McManus, bestselling author of One of Us is Lying

The Hazel Wood kept me up all night. I had every light burning and the covers pulled tight around me as I fell completely into the dark and beautiful world within its pages. Terrifying, magical, and surprisingly funny, it's one of the very best books I've read in years. -- Jennifer Niven

Thoroughly, creepily captivating, with surprises I never saw coming! Such a refreshing and beautifully written inversion of the classic fairytale-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 adventure - it's not safe inside these pages, but once you enter, you may never want to leave. -- Stephanie Garber, New York Times bestselling author of CARAVAL

A WINDING, CREEPY, INSIDIOUSLY DELICIOUS NOVEL. UTTERLY SPECTACULAR -- Melinda Salisbury, bestselling author of The Sin Eater’s Daughter

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad...
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 4 November 2020
All Alice can really remember from her childhood is being on the road with her mum, Ella.  Always on the run from the ‘bad luck’ that seemed to follow them.  After the death of her grandmother, Althea, author of a twisted fairytale book, whom Alice had never met, Ella thought they were safe from their bad luck.  When Alice is 17, her mother is kidnapped and Alice finds an extract from her grandmothers book and knows that the Hazel Wood is connected to her mothers abduction.  With the help of an unlikely friend in Ellery Finch, Alice is on a quest to find the Hazel Wood and get her mother back.

The one has been on my bookshelf for a long, long time and eventually I told myself it’s about time I read it – I’m not sure what I expected but this is a very odd fantasy novel!  This book was all kinds of weird to the point I had to re-read parts to check I read the right thing!  Definitely felt like I was in Wonderland whereby the weird and unusual is normal! I really liked Ellery Finch’s character, despite being a millionaire’s son he was the only one helping Alice and not asking for much of anything in return, he didn’t like his life of privilege and money and found solace in books – which us bookstagrammers can relate to!

I have to be completely honest, I was relieved when I got to the end of this book because it felt like a lot to absorb and understand.  Not a top rater in my mind but it might be for others!  If you do pick this book up, I hope you enjoy it!
