Review: Heartless by Marissa Meyer

Title: Heartless

Author: Marissa Meyer

Long before she was the terror of Wonderland—the infamous Queen of Hearts—she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.

Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next queen.

Then Cath meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the king and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship. Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.

I absolutely love a Marissa Meyer retelling so couldn’t wait to read the origin story of the Queen of Hearts!

The King loves Catherine……
Catherine loves the Court Joker
And Jest loves Catherine…….

Catherine Pinkerton is a normal girl who wants normal things, she wants to bake, she wants to fall in love and she wants to open a bakery with her friend, Mary Ann and she does not want to marry the King! And then she meets Jest. Aaaah Jest. He was the best!

But this was the downfall of Catherine Pinkerton…….this was dark, sad and tragic and, although I knew how this had to end, I didn’t want it to happen that way! My heart is broken!!!

I did find it a bit strung out but was an enjoyable read.
