Waiting on Wednesday #119

Title: The Hazel Wood 
Series: N/A
Author: Melissa Albert 
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy 
Publisher: Flatiron Books 
Publication Date: January 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.

Why I'm waiting on The Hazel Wood this Wednesday: This book honestly sounds like a lot of fun.  I love novels that pull from fairy tales.  Even if it's not the content they pull but the tone and the style.  It sounds like this one will be doing that so I'm really looking forward to how that turns out!  I also like the cover A LOT so I'm excited to have it on my shelf :)
