The Darkest Part of the Forest

The Darkest Part of the Forest - Holly Black

I'm finding that I am just not a big fan of Holly Black. I didn't love The Coldest Girl in Coldtown as I found it boring whereas most people loved it. The same goes to The Darkest Part of the Forest, its just boring. I almost didn't finish listening to it. 


Hazel and her brother Ben live in a town where humans live next to the fae. Hazel has a connection with the fae unlike the rest of the town. The problem is she can't remember most of it. 


The one thing I do like about this book is the sibling relationship, as I always want to see more of that in YA books. But man, it just dragged. There is a lot of dialogue and scenes going back and forth. This is something I won't remember in a few months time.
