Heartless by Marrissa Meyer Book Review

Title: Heartless
Author: Marissa Meyer
Rating: 3.5/5
Genre: Romance, Drama, YA 
Released: Available to purchase now

'Before she was the queen of hearts all she wanted to do was fall in love'

From the best selling author of The Lunar Chronicles comes Marissa Meyers new book: Heartless. I actually haven't even read the Lunar Chronicles - shocking I know I'll definitely have to add them to my TBR list! 

Heartless is based off of the well known story of Alice in Wonderland so if you're a lover of that, you'll definitely enjoy Heartless. Marissa has used her beautiful writing talents and written a whole new World for us to jump into! The story starts off at the Kings party where he's planning on proposing to Cath, her mother's completely aware of what the King is planning and she makes Cath stand out in the Black and White ball by wearing a red gown which is exactly what she gets, the attention. Cath arrives at the ball instantly realising what her mother is up too, but we all know balls don't always go to plan do they?! 

Of course not. Enter Jest. The new Court Joker. Jest arrives out of nowhere, no one has even saw or heard of him before, but he turns up unexpectedly at the ball, and Cath takes a liking too him. The ball doesn't go to plan at all as the famous Jabberwock appears out of nowhere and things go downhill from there, the Jabberwock's returned, Cath runs out on the Kings proposal, and her mother is going to do everything to make sure she accepts it and marries the King. Throughout the story the King is determined to make Cath the Queen of Hearts whereas that's not on Cath's plan of things at all, she wants to make her dream come true and own a bakery with her best friend and maid Mary Ann but will the Marchioness and Machioness allow that to happen? Their daughter - Lady Pinkerton - the one they wish to marry the King become an owner of a Bakery? Not likely. 

I thoroughly enjoyed this one and definitely think you'll love this if you loved The Lunar Chronicles and Alice in Wonderland.
