The Hazel Wood

The Hazel Wood

Prepare to be absorbed by this dark fairytale that takes place in modern day Manhattan. Alice and her mom have spent 17 years on the run, trying to dodge the persistent bad luck mysteriously connected to an unnerving book of stories penned by Alice's estranged grandmother. When Alice's grandmother dies, her mother thinks they're free—until the day Alice comes home from school to discover Ella has been kidnapped, leaving behind a page torn from her grandmother's book and a note: Stay away from the Hazel Wood. But Alice has to save her mom, so she enters what she slowly begins to see is her grandmother's book of stories-come-to-life—and they suddenly look a lot more like horror than fantasy. This seriously twisted and sometimes bloody fairy tale reminds me of The Thirteenth Tale, with a dash of The Matrix. More info →

Cinder

Cinder

Each book in The Lunar Chronicles series puts a new spin on an old fairy tale. In this first installment, Cinderella becomes a kickass mechanic, despised by her mother and stepsisters because she's a cyborg. Admittedly, it sounds cheesy, but it works. YA fantasy isn't usually my thing; I'd heard great things about this series from a wide range of readers but it took me years to give it a try. I'm glad I did, and I've since listened to more YA fantasy. The propulsive plots and fast-paced storytelling lends themselves well to audiobook adaptation. More info →
