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!
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.
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.”
