Besides the books and traveling, I’m a little bit addicted to woods. You know, foggy mornings, cold rainy days, giant redwoods, fresh smell of eucalyptus, bewitching sound of rustling leaves and hush, that spreads out along a mossy carpet of fallen foliage and twigs. As every book has come from the magic of forests, it carries its might and wisdom. There is no more peaceful and solitary place on the Earth. Well, maybe there is – home in the woods. Yep, my dearest wish. Keep it a secret, or it’ll never come true.
I call it my place of strength. So when it comes to a good story along with the spirit of woods, I begin to miss heartbeats. That’s my thing, and that’s the way of magic the world gives me. To find a good book is like to come to the borderline of the forest. I’m ready to make another step into it as I open the pages. The more the book captivates me with its plot twist, the more I deepen into the forest – yet scary, but enchanting.
So, maybe I have to tell you about the books those speak the language of the woods? Not necessary they have to be the best books I’ve ever read, but their stories take places I want to come back more often.
Hold on! Forest faerie is coming to abduct you!
Dark Swan by Richelle Mead
Before I got ACOTAR series, my first love for faeries belonged to Dark Swan series. To read this book is like to travel all over the world and see all the seasons of the year at a time. The best way to receive aesthetic delight.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
Every time the bookish world gives me another story about faerie, it only becomes the best way to carry me away from the routine and to get lost in its vast world. More woods, more fantastic creatures, more battles and more love-on-the-edge. Thank-You-More-Please!
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
This forest-themed book describes two kinds of woodlands: the one that gives and the other that takes. So this type of nature is like the coin with two sides. No matter what side you are, all you have is to fight for survival.
The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer
Alongside with sparkling vampires and werewolf-boys, those came right from the Quileute legends, you can sip the forest air right from the pages of Twilight saga. And it will be never enough.
State of Wonder by Ann Patchett
This story presents another kind of woods – rainforest. Though this is not my favorite type, its description feels so alive that you can taste and smell all of its tropical flavors. Rainforest keeps danger deep inside its miracles along with the beauty.
Shiver By Maggie Stiefvater
Who is Wolf-addicted? Then this is your theme! And there is no better home for wolves than woods. Welcome to the story about love to werewolf-boys with bitter smell of winter forests. Beware, wolves are watching you.
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis
One of the best fairy tales for all times with a spectacular fantasy world to run away. The book tells you the story about siblings and their adventures as Kings and Queens of Narnia. I have a crush on the ravishing beauty of its nature and landscapes.
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
A kind tale about friendship. Childhood is the best age where you have all the time in the world to spend it in the tree house and to invent an excellent adventure into the fantasy. Woodland is the best place for the games of imagination.
