bookishWISHES with The Darkest Part of the Forest


To celebrate the publication of The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black, we were asked to come up with bookWISHES from the tag
‘IN THE DARKEST PART OF THE FOREST, BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR’
We could come up with any type of bookish wish we wanted to do and share it with you and were provided with some examples: the book you wish an author would write, the fairytale you wish would be updated/ rewritten, the book you wish you’d written.

My bookishWISHES for 2015 is a simple, but extremely hard bookishWISH. It's one I am sure a lot of readers and bloggers alike all want to achieve, yet most are never able to see the finishing line, or in my case, the starting line.

My bookishWISHES for 2015 is to tackle my ever growing TBR pile. When I look at my shelves I am lost on where to start. I don't even look at my total on goodreads for all my books as it just scares me so much. I want to read the books I purchased years ago and have an adventure with shifters, take a trip with weather wardens, go on the run with a cyborg, and investigate with a grim reaper. This is an easy, yet seemingly impossible task, so that i why I chose this as my bookishWISHE.

I am also going to share the magic with one of you. To be in with a chance of winning a copy of The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black [UK only] all you have to do is share your bookishWISHES, either on twitter, instagram, or facebook and come back and leave a direct link to your post here in the comments. Just copy the sentence below, including the tags, and add your own wish.

IN THE DARKEST PART OF THE FOREST, YOU MUST BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR...

HOLLY BLACK’S 
THE DARKEST PART OF THE FOREST 

FAERIES. KNIGHTS. PRINCES. THINK YOU KNOW HOW THE STORY GOES? THINK AGAIN...

NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author HOLLY BLACK spins a dark, dangerous and utterly beautiful faerie tale, guaranteed to steal your heart

Children can have a cruel, absolute sense of justice. Children can kill a monster and feel quite proud of themselves. A girl can look at her brother and believe they’re destined to be a knight and a bard who battle evil. She can believe she’s found the thing she’s been made for.

Hazel lives with her brother, Ben, in the strange town of Fairfold where humans and fae exist side by side. The faeries’ seemingly harmless magic attracts tourists, but Hazel knows how dangerous they can be, and she knows how to stop them. Or she did, once. At the centre of it all, there is a glass coffin in the woods. It rests right on the ground and in it sleeps a boy with horns on his head and ears as pointy as knives. Hazel and Ben were both in love with him as children. The boy has slept there for generations, never waking.

Until one day, he does… As the world turns upside down and a hero is needed to save them all, Hazel tries to remember her years spent pretending to be a knight. But swept up in new love, shifting loyalties, and the fresh sting

THE DARKEST PART OF THE FOREST by Holly Black will be published by Indigo on 5 February 2015
9781780621739/ Hardback at £10.99 and ebook at £5.99
