Darrow still believes he can save everyone, but can he save himself?

When she finally succumbs to the guilt of destroying an innocent family’s life, she leaves Noah alone to carry the burden of this shocking secret, which she makes him vow never to share.

January 30, 2018

34275232

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.”

Trang: A dark, mesmerizing supernatural fairytale. SOO LOOKING FORWARD TO READ IT 😀

    Oh there are so many amazing books being released in January right? I am beyond excited for Iron Gold, it feels like I’ve been waiting for ages for it to be released but I know it’s going to be beyond amazing. I have an ARC of The Hazel Wood which I can’t wait to get started on, and I really enjoyed The Cruel Prince as well. 🙂 2018 is going to be an amazing year for book releases if the books coming out in January are anything to go by! 😀

    Some great books on this list! I’ve heard great things about The Chalk Man and The Wolves of Winter, which I hadn’t heard about sounds great!

    Ha, Trang got Iron Gold! Awesome!👊 Oh my, I can almost see all the envious bloggers who want it and haven’t got it!😂😂

    Gwynne is fantastic, The Faithful and the Fallen series is amazing and A Time of Dread should be too.👌

    Lashaan, maybe! But regardless if you get the other books read in time or not, The Shadow Campaigns are a fantastic series that’s well worth your time.😀

      I’m pretty excited for The Wolves of Winter too. It sounds special. And special would be nice. 😛

      From someone who’s completed The Faithfull and the Fallen series, your perspective on A Time of Dread would be pretty intriguing compared to someone who hasn’t completed that series hahah 😛 I’m starting Malice right now, so at least I’ll have a nice idea of what the author’s writing style is like. 😀

      Oh sweet. I honestly don’t plan on catching up before the 5th book come out hahah There’s way too many already in queue to be read in January for me. I do hope I’ll get the chance to read Wexler’s series some day though!

    Ooh I’m very much looking forward to Cruel Prince! And I’ve heard great things about the Wife Between Us! And am curious about the Immortalists and the Chalk Man! Hazel Wood looks good too. But AHH IRON GOLD!! (I’ll probably wait ages to read that- but I’ll be excited the whole time and looking forward to your thoughts on it!)

  5. Inge | The Belgian Reviewer says:

    Happy to see there are titles I want to read too! The Wife Between Us and The Chalk Man are being read and discussed everywhere!! I requested The Wife Between Us so fingers crossed I don’t get rejected again ;-). Anatomy of a Scandal piques my interest too but I don’t really like politics so I’m not sure about that one, I’ll wait and see the review :-). Great list!

    • Lashaan (Bookidote) says:

      Oh, you know there will always be thrillers for you to be released every month. 😉 We always like a good thriller ourselves. 😀 Hope you get to read The Wife Between Us though. Honestly, I haven’t heard any bad things about it yet! Oh yes. I too wonder how much politics it contains. Hopefully it’s a nice surprise. 😉 Thank you, Inge!! 🙂

    Love that you are doing this! The Wife Between Us was a 5 star for me. I will say that it doesn’t pack a huge punch per say (in my opinion) but it was brilliantly co-authored and offers some unexpected in a very familiar scenario. So well done!

    Really looking forward to Thunderhead (I just buddy read Scythe – will post Tuesday) and The Cruel Prince after Trang’s review. Some very good titles coming up!

    • Lashaan (Bookidote) says:

      Yep, the idea also helps as not only a reminder for those who forgot about a book release, but also as a service for those who simply didn’t know about certain titles. I think it would be cool if we could do it every month for all the books we look forward to their release. 😀 Oh, I hear ya on The Wife Between Us. With the number of thrillers who are often a little too similar nowadays, I’d gladly welcome a well-written co-authored thriller (that’s already rare in itself hahah)!

    The Extinction Trials sounds pretty fantastic, but I’ve been trying to read less Young Adult because I think I’ve outgrown it.
    I recently finished The Wolves of Winter and enjoyed it!
    K.A. Tucker is an automatic read author for me, so I’m excited for Keep Her Safe! Great list! looking forward to more posts like this 🙂

    The Wolves of Winter was phenomenal! I’m currently reading the Immortalist, which is good so far. I wasn’t a huge fan of Anatomy of a Scandal, but I think that’s a “me” thing, not an indicator of the book. And I’m really looking forward to The Hazel Wood.
