Waiting on Wednesday 06/24/20

Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Tales From the Hinterland by by Melissa Albert (January 12, 2021 by Flatiron Books)

I rarely look forward to a short story collection with such excitement, but I loved Melissa Albert’s The Hazel Wood, a story about a girl who discovers her roots in a book of fairy tales, supposedly penned by her elusive grandmother Althea Proserpine. Snippets of the stories from this book have been scattered throughout The Hazel Wood and its sequel The Night Country, but readers will finally get to explore this entire collection in all its glory with Tales from the Hinterland which contains the twelve stories that provide the foundation for the whole series.

“A gorgeously illustrated collection of the twelve original stories that frame Melissa Albert’s New York Times bestsellers The Hazel Wood and The Night Country.

Before The Hazel Wood, there was Althea Proserpine’s Tales from the Hinterland…

Journey into the Hinterland, a brutal and beautiful world where a young woman spends a night with Death, brides are wed to a mysterious house in the trees, and an enchantress is killed twice—and still lives.

Perfect for new readers and dedicated Hinterland fans alike, Tales from the Hinterland features full-page illustrations by Jim Tierney, foil stamping, two-color interior printing, and printed endpapers.”

  1. Oh this is cool! I haven’t read The Hazel Wood or The Night Country, so I won’t be reading this any time soon, but it sounds like a nice addition to the series😁


  2. This is such a great idea, perfect to pull everything together. I’ve never read any of the books but this has me very curious to try them.


  3. I’ve not read anything y this author but I know people have loved the two previous books. I love how all the covers coordinate too.


  4. I’ve only read The Hazel Wood so far but as soon as I finished it I knew I wanted to read the stories it mentioned in full so I was thrilled when this was first announced!! I so can’t wait for this to come out 😍


  5. Oh wow, how exciting! I also don’t usually love short stories but this definitely interests me – I do still have to read book No.2 though (mmm, I have audible credits I wonder if its available on audio – must go check).
