Better World Books 2017 Reading Challange

I've been doing this reading challenge just seeing if my usual reading fits into all the categories and I have completed most of them. Now festival time is over, I'm going to try and complete it but I need some book suggestions that fit into the following categories.

A book based on a fairy tale
A book that takes place in a forest
A romance that takes place during travel

Thanks for the suggestions. Can't believe it's been 6 years since I read Troll - I remember it well.
