The Hazel Wood (which I didn’t like and found problematic sighs) is being turned into a movie. I really don’t know how feel about this but I hope it goes well.
I know that some of the reason I found it problematic is how I interpreted the book. It seemed really obvious to me but some people just didn’t see the book like that at all, so hope the movies like that?? idk I am confused
