Number 14: HeartlessHeartless by Marissa Meye Stand-Alone
Genre: Fantasy, Retelling, Young Adult
Pages: 453
I love Marissa Meyer and her books, but I don't love Alice and Wonderland.  So a retelling of a fairy tale that I don't love really didn't have much of a chance.  That being said, I thought the most interesting part of this read was the background of the side characters like Cheshire the cat and the Mad Hatter.  But the Queen of Hearts and her reason for going "bad" didn't really do it for me.  I felt most of the book was pointless and unnessary (man I sound harsh) and the the explanation at the end could have been done without any of the rest.  I wanted it to feel necessary.  The background and character development of the Queen of Hearts just didn't match up to me.  I don't know.  I'll look forward to of Ms. Meyer's retellings in the future.  This one was just okay.
