(Review from the author)
it was amazing

UPDATE: I've been getting this question a lot, so I'll answer it here: The Hazel Wood is not an Alice in Wonderland retelling. I just like the name Alice. ;)

For the curious: a first chapter excerpt lives here: http://ew.com/books/2017/06/07/meliss...

(And thanks for being curious!)

Kirstin I have been really confused by some readers' conviction that it is. Like were they reading a different book than I did? :D

Alice is a loaded name... ;)

Too True :D

I really enjoyed the book. I think you've read every single one of my favourite books because there were flavours of all of them in your book and it was amazing, like you were pulling things from inside my head.


Melissa That is amazing!! I love when a book does that for me, so I am honored. <3


message 20: by Amy (new) - rated it 5 stars

Amy I have to say this book has not left my head since I finished it ! You did a phenomenal job drawing me into Alice’s world and the world of Hinterland. This is the type of book I love ! Where I can re read and find something new to love each time. Thank you for giving me an amazing experience!


Melissa That is wonderful to hear! Thanks for reading, and for letting me know you enjoyed it.

That's lovely, and I'm so happy you're mother-daughter book-clubbing it! I always give my favorites to my mom when I'm done. <3

Brittany I have nothing much to add to what others have said, but I loved the book (as did my teenage daughters)! I can't wait to read the next installment, but i think I'm even more excited to read the collection of Hinterland fairytales!

Beth Bradley I couldn't get enough of your book! It was a wild ride beginning to end and it is really refreshing to read a YA novel with no chosen one (but Harry Potter references!) AND no romance. I couldn't put it down


message 31: by June (new) - rated it 5 stars

June Åsheim I really loved your book! Thank you for giving me one of my best reading experiences in 2018.

We have it at our small local library in Balsfjord, a tiny village in North Norway. I work there and have recommend it to all the fantasy lovers I know.
