Just Couldn't Put It Down Giveaway Hop


Welcome to the Just Couldn't Put It Down Giveaway Hop!

I am featuring The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert and giving away a $15 gift card to the book store of your choice. Thanks to Stuck In Books for hosting this giveaway!

From Goodreads: 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 have to admit that I am still reading this book, but I'm reading it much faster than I normally read. If you look at the reviews, they're all over the place. Some people have found it boring, but I'm not finding it so. Some people rating the book low seem to have had certain expectations of what the book would be like and were disappointed. I had no expectations and am mostly enjoying it.

It's not, strictly speaking, pure fantasy. And it's not, as some people assume, a retelling of Alice in Wonderland (according to the author). It is dark and creepy and pretty twisted. The main character is almost completely unlikable and is the only thing I'm disliking about it, but I haven't found out why she's as annoying, angry, foul-mouthed, and completely insensitive and self-absorbed as she is, beyond a hard life of basically being on the run forever. There's some content that makes me question the appropriateness of a YA label, but leaving that aside, I'm finding the story compelling and want to get to the end. Some of the writing is over the top, but much of it is fantastic. Goodreads shows this as the first in a series, so there's that, too.

If you like dark and creepy, don't approach it with preconceptions, and aren't easily offended, you might enjoy this one. This is one of Modern Mrs. Darcy's Summer picks.

EDIT: I just finished this one and loved it. I acknowledge it's a bit uneven towards the end and I think it gets a little carried away with some of the description, but I enjoyed it and definitely couldn't wait to keep picking it up to read more. And yes, there's a reason the MC is as unlikable as she is. Give her the benefit of the doubt and remember this is a Fairy Tale world. The Hazel Wood has been picked up by Columbia and the adapters of Divergent to become a movie.

Beach Reads Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Beach Reads Giveaway Hop!
I'm hoping to get in a little beach time this summer. If I do, the book I plan to take with me is The Anatomist's Wife by Anna Lee Huber. Have you read it? It's waiting on the shelf right now, but if I go to the beach it's coming with! What do you plan on reading at the beach (ocean, lake, river) this summer? Here's the description from Goodreads:

Scotland, 1830. Following the death of her husband, Lady Darby has taken refuge at her sister's estate, finding solace in her passion for painting. But when her hosts throw a house party for the cream of London society, Kiera is unable to hide from the ire of those who believe her to be as unnatural as her husband, an anatomist who used her artistic talents to suit his own macabre purposes.

Kiera wants to put her past aside, but when one of the house guests is murdered, her brother-in-law asks her to utilize her knowledge of human anatomy to aid the insufferable Sebastian Gage--a fellow guest with some experience as an inquiry agent. While Gage is clearly more competent than she first assumed, Kiera isn't about to let her guard down as accusations and rumors swirl.

When Kiera and Gage's search leads them to even more gruesome discoveries, a series of disturbing notes urges Lady Darby to give up the inquiry. But Kiera is determined to both protect her family and prove her innocence, even as she risks becoming the next victim...
