    Red Queen Review

    Summary Alice and Hatcher have ventured out from Old City and are on the path to happily ever after, or so they thought. When they get separated in the woods, Alice will learn how to save herself and those that she loves.  My Thoughts  This sequel was such an interesting twist to even the first book. I honestly thought that this book wasn’t going to have the same zip as the first because the first was just so outrageous, but I was wrong. This book was different from  Alice because it took that darkness and that drama and went into more depth with the main characters.  The setting of this…

She was the perfect wife, but when her husband betrays her, she will become just a little vengeful….  My Thoughts  OMG! THIS BOOK WAS KILLER LITERALLY AND FIGURATIVELY. I enjoyed this book so much better than the first for one reason and one reason only, Marcella Riggins….  Marcella Riggins was an instant love character for me from the moment she started talking. Yes, she is bloodthirsty, evil, manipulative, conniving, and vengeful, but this girl has been through hell and back and she didn’t…

This author portrays the priorities of life through these many different characters’ raw and very real storylines. My Thoughts  So I’m not the biggest fan of short story collections because I always need more time in book worlds and characters. However, I read the title and the synopsis of this book and I just had to read it. As an ESL teacher, it hit home for me and I really needed to see where this author was going with it. I am so happy I read it although…
