#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook where you chose five books from your to-be-read pile that fit that week’s theme. If you’d like more info, head over to the announcement post!
It’s time for another 5 On My TBR! Today, we’re talking about one of my favorite settings in books. That’s because the theme is forests. I’m a huge fan of a book that features a creepy woods/forest, so I was pumped to pick out five to feature in this post! Even if I stretched the idea of it a wee bit.
That being said, let’s jump in!
#1. Wildblood by Lauren Blackwood
This is the book where I stretched the whole ‘forest’ theme because this is set in a jungle. It’s still a collection of trees, so I think it counts! This is the newest book from the author of Within These Wicked Walls, which I recently read and loved. It follows a young woman with magic in her blood who leads expeditions through a terrifying jungle. It sounds absolutely incredible and I was lucky enough to get an e-ARC from Netgalley to read! I’m so excited to pick it up.
#2. Midnight in Everwood by Maria Kuzniar
I’m honestly not sure how prominently the snowy forest on the cover of this book is featured, but I wanted to throw this book on the list anyways. Mostly because I’ve been eager to read this for awhile now! It’s a Nutcracker retelling that sounds like it would be a great time. I know I like this author’s writing and I would love to see what she does with this classic tale. Also, the cover is freakin’ gorgeous 😍
#3. The Woods Are Always Watching by Stephanie Perkins
In this book, we follow two friends that go for a hike in the woods and then everything goes wrong. Like… in a deadly way. A thriller set in the woods is exactly my thing, so I’ve been wanting to check this out for awhile! You’ll note that’s a trend with me 😂 I’ve also been curious about trying out this author for a minute. Here’s hoping that I actually pick this up some time soon and that I enjoy it! The synopsis makes me think that I will.
#4. For the Wolf by Hannah F. Whitten
Here’s another book that has been on my TBR for awhile and I have no idea why I haven’t read it yet. I was so excited for this book to come out! It has a creepy woods, which we have established is one of my favorite things. It also has a man called the Wolf of the Woods which sounds even more like my vibe. I’ve heard so many good things about this book, as well, and I’m hoping I love it as much as everyone else has so far.
#5. Lost in the Never Woods by Aiden Thomas
Again, I’m not sure how prominently the titular woods feature in this book, but I’m hoping it’s quite a lot. This is by the author of Cemetery Boys, which I truly enjoyed, so I’ve been wanting to check this out for a bit. It’s a Peter Pan retelling, which is probably why I’ve held off on it for so long. That is one classic story that never really captivated me. I didn’t even like the Disney movie, haha. Still, this sounds like it could be a very intriguing retelling.
What are some books with forests on your TBR? Have you read any of the books on mine? Let me know in the comments!
And, as always, happy reading!

Ooh, I didn’t know These Wicked Walls had a sequel but I was already eyeing that cover and wondering how it is I’d never seen it before 😂 I hope you enjoy it!
