    1 thought on “The Wood

    1. **4/5 STARS**Yes! Finally! Finally, a main character with common sense! Finally, a sixteen-year-old who doesn't make all the wrong decisions, but rather thinks things through. Ah, this was an extremely refreshing read. But seriously, ya'll. This books needs to be on your to-be-read list, because it's just that imaginative and original.What I liked: The originality of the story. I plowed right through this, and loved how I felt like I've never read anything like it before. It was unique and writt [...]

    2. This book definitely surprised me! No one is talking about it, and the cover isn't amazing, so I had low expectations going into it. But the story was so different than I was expecting! It was the perfect blend of modern life, a fantastical forest, time travel, conspiracies and a hint of romance. The main character, Winter, was capable and interesting, with just the right amount of snark. Get this book on your radar - not enough people are talking about it!

    3. "Dad tells me the wood is not a place to play. It is a place for business, and it is more powerful than I could ever imagine. He tells me I cannot forget the rules of the wood. There are three.Do not travel from the paths.Do not linger after dark.Do not ignore the calling."PLOT ➳➳Winter's family has long been tasked with guarding The Wood, a magical piece of forestry behind her house that appears normal to non-Guardians but for Guardians, it is a dangerous, living, breathing place, full of t [...]

    4. My written interview with the author can be found here.Thank you, Macmillan, for sending me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.Do not travel from the paths. Do not linger after dark. Do not ignore the calling.Despite its lackluster title, The Wood is one of the most unique books I've read this year. I really didn't expect that it would be a mystery set in a simultaneously fantastical and contemporary setting where time travel is possible. Winter Parish, the heroine, is a guardi [...]

    7. This was my book of the month from my Bookloot subscription :) it came with a really awesome handwritten letter from the author on her thoughts while writing this book. It really got me excited to step into the pages of The Wood! This was a great story!! I really could have used about a hundred more pages of what happens after that ending!! Not that I wasn't so completely happy with that ending though I would have liked maybe to change one little thing;) I usually get frustrated sometimes when r [...]

    8. 2.5 starsI was so excited for this book. I loved the cover and the synopsis and because of both, I was expecting epic evilness. What I got wast that.I liked Winter well enough. She's smart and driven and seems to have a decent helping of common sense. Her bff Mer was maybe a bit exaggerated and her mom seemed clueless. Henry was definitely the best part of the story. And while I understand why Winter acted the way she did towards him, I think it could have been done just a bit differently. Plot [...]

    9. The Wood is a very creative story about woods that contain time travelling portals and the guardians that guard the wood and the travellers that enter it.After Winter's Dad suddenly disappears and the council blames it on him losing his mind in the Wood, Winter takes it upon herself to solve the mystery of her father's disappearance. When a mysterious traveller keeps appearing in Winter's part of the Wood, Winter knows that something is wrong, no one should be able to access the Wood so easily. [...]

    10. A fantastic read that evokes a sense of wonder and delight.I read this because I met the author at a local signing event and wasn't quite sure what to expect. I have a soft spot for YA, and the idea of a magical magical woods right here in present day Midwest America intrigued me.That said, I loved this book. It's one of those comfortable stories written in an easy but deftly handled style that's great to just settle into and read away with a grin. The premise is that a young woman is charged wi [...]

    11. You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight Today I shall do something I rarely do: Start with what I didn't like about the book. Because it kind of matters for the rest of what I have to say? Sure. Okay, so there is some magic involved in this book, and that magical situation allows for time travel. I like time travel a lot, but there are times where I don't fully "get" the rules under which said time travel occurs. That is th [...]

    12. The cover is misleading. Nothing about this was bloody or gory. It wasn't even dark. It wasn’t a happy story, but I was expecting something slightly more sinister. It was easy to get into the story though. The world was original. A magical forest was part of the fae realm. Portals from various times and places around the world connected to the forest, but it was dangerous for people to pass through them because it could mess up the natural timeline. A select few humans were guardians of the po [...]

    13. The best way I can describe the feel of the "Wood" world is STRANGER THINGS (re: the dark and creepy The Upside Down setting) with time travel portals. I describe this in mood only. That being said, The Wood tiptoes through every single possible genre.In any event, I am going to pretend the last 10% of this book did not exist because not only was it a cheese fest, the legitimacy of the decent villain (though was easily known by foreshadowed clues etc.) was led askew by sudden poor decision makin [...]

    14. After Winter's father disappears in the wood it's Winter's job to guide lost travelers back to where they're from. This guardianship is part of her heritage. Winter's father never had the chance to complete the instructions he was supposed to give to his daughter, so Winter has to do a lot of discovering on her own. Sending accidental visitors home isn't too difficult, but this changes when the wood becomes darker and more violent. Why is it transforming?Winter doesn't have to find out more abou [...]

    15. So I really liked this book. But I found the ending sad. I mean, how come Winter and Henry don't end up together?? Like, whyyy??? :'( I mean, I get the need for a unique ending, but why??I wish there was a sequel. Or maybe some fan-fic. Hmm 🤔

    16. Dnf at 60%2.5*Its just overly cliché and too damn predictable. I can't. Why should I waste my time when there are millions of other books waiting to be read? No

    17. THE WOOD is a unique and alluring and beautifully written tale that grabs hold from its very first page and won’t let go until its last. It invites readers into a world that is enchanting and magical, yet hints of darkness and danger. It is thrilling. It is haunting. It is completely captivating. It is an extraordinary read that promises to leave readers clamoring for a sequel.When Winter Parish finally learned the secret of the wood and her responsibility for it and for the people who would s [...]

    18. The Wood by debut author Chelsea Bobulski was a book I was immediately drawn into and unable to put down. It had a great mix of interesting characters and a page turning story. Winter is a guardian of the wood and this definitely complicates her life. I loved how Bobulski blended this supernatural aspect with the normal aspects of a life of a teenager. It truly showed the strain Winter is under trying to complete school while trying to protect travelers now that her father is gone. I liked Winte [...]

    19. Darn. I thought this book would be all creepy things moving about in the woods, magic and fairy tale kind of style. Instead I was disappointed by almost everything (except the cover, that is beautiful!) For me things started to unravel the moment Winter meets Henry. This will probably veer into SPOILER territory for a while, but seriously? Here are all the rules to the service of the wood, never break these rules, blah blah blahoh, sexy!Teenage!Boy! I must immediately break all the rules because [...]

    20. 3.5 starsUggggghhhh. that endingNot exactly what I wanted, but I suppose I did expect it. First, let me say that this cover is absolutely gorgeous. Second, that was one heck of a ride, especially for a standalone. While it was based on something - time travel - which I've read in too many book, I quite liked this book. Albeit, much of what happened didn't happen unexpectedly, I had my suspicious and they were *sometimes unfortunately* correct. But, I will definitely be looking out for any more b [...]

    21. You know that rush of annoyance you get when the YA protagonist is supposed to be skilled but actually she's just stupid and reckless and feelings-based? This is the opposite of that. Bless.

    22. This one was damned near perfect. First, Winter is one of the best female characters I have read in a really long time. She's smart, brave, and layered in her emotions. She also has her head on straight. Then there is the world building, which is pretty awesome. What really blew my mind is how genre-bending it is. It feels like horror, has touches of magical realism, and at points it becomes a fish out of water comedy of errors. There are some really funny parts in this book! I would recommend t [...]

    23. Why aren't people talking about this book?? This was such an exciting whirlwind of a story. Fantasy. Slight romance. Betrayal. Mystery. So much is packed into this story that I want everyone to read it!------------Full review can be found here: agingerlyreview.wordpressI won an ARC copy of this book from Twitter earlier this year and could not wait to get my grubby hands on this! Time travels, mystical beings, haunted woods what doesn't sound awesome about that?!Short recap: Winter's father has [...]

    24. If this darkly gorgeous book isn't yet on your radar, IT SHOULD BE.It's rare that an author can turn a phrase as masterfully as Chelsea Bobulski does in her debut contemporary fantasy. I can only imagine how long it took her to write a novel where every sentence is a carefully crafted thing of beauty.If you dig:Time TravelMysterious woodsA snarky, independent protagonistRomance (Oh, the romance!)Beautiful, dreamlike proseen this is the book for you!Don't miss it!

    25. Got to page 109 in the ARC before deciding this isn't for me. I had been hoping for a creepy forest story but most pages have been lacking on that, the Fae are the main supernatural thing. The romance is classic time travel guy from the past hiding in our time and it's just not exciting anymore.

    26. After her father disappeared from the woods they protect, Winter becomes determined to find out what happened to him, why the woods are changing, and what it all has to do with the arrival of a handsome traveler who is determined not to return to his own time. When Winter's Dad doesn't return from his evening patrol, it becomes her responsibility to protect the woods and take care of the travelers who get lost there. But, Winter is convinced that there is more to her father's disappearance than [...]

    27. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book from the publisher.Winter's father doesn't come back from his morning patrol one day and is presumed to have been swallowed up by the woods he has been tasked to protect. Now that he has gone, Winter has had to step up and be the caretaker of the dangerous wood.One day, a traveler named Henry whilst trying to get into a different time period than his own is stopped and redirected by Winter, but not before his promise that he would keep coming bac [...]

    28. Overall, this book was entertaining, I just found it kind of mainstream. It wasn't what I expected. I thought it would be a dark modern fantasy or magical realism, kind of odd and creepy, but it wasn't actually scary at all, nor was it very dark which I found disappointing. It was kind of nothing new in the genre of YA urban fantasy, and because of that I almost found it boring. Even the baddie wasn't all that interesting, and it wasn't hard to figure out the twist of who was really doing it. So [...]

    29. Overall rating: 3.75-4/5 stars I had a lot of fun with this book! Also, a near cry! What a roller coaster. Is it the book or my mental state? Who knows! What a fun game. I picked this off the shelf without having heard of it or really knowing what it was about, because I really needed something to read, and wasn't disappointed! There were some things that were odd, like, why regular people could just enter the wood, because it seemed like a pretty big plot hole, but overall, a quick, easy, and f [...]

    30. "Dad tells me the wood is not a place to play. It is a place for business, and it is more powerful than I could ever imagine. He tells me I cannot forget the rules of the wood. There are three.Do not travel from the paths.Do not linger after dark.Do not ignore the calling."When a book starts out like this, I can't help but to be intrigued. Despite this book's flaws, I really enjoyed this story. The ending felt a bit rushed, but all in all, a very enjoyable story. Spoilery thoughts. (view spoiler [...]
