Night Country is the sequel to Melissa Albert’s amazing 2018 debut The Hazel Wood. I chose it as one of my Most Anticipated YA Books of 2020 and it lived up to everything I was hoping for.
Instead of listing my favorite books of 2019, I decided to put together a selection of my most anticipated YA books of 2020. I finished well over 100 books in 2019. Most of the books I’m looking forward to most in 2020 are by authors whose novels I loved in 2019.
Its inclusion on Jennifer Lynn Barnes‘s University of Oklahoma syllabus led me to pick up The Hazel Wood, Melissa Albert‘s debut novel. As I mentioned in my review of Children of Blood and Bone, I’m not really a fantasy fan, but I greatly enjoyed The Hazel Wood.
