Thanksgiving! And Feels…

Hello, Hi, Hey. Yes, I’m here. Sorry… the past couple days have been filled with writing, reading and friends. Yes, I have friends, surprise surprise. Anyway, I come to say, Happy Thanksgiving! I’m thankful for all of you! ((I know that’s probably cheesy but I am.)) And also, I finished Heartless! SO we should get onto that review. Not gonna lie, I will probably spoiler some of it so… I warn you now. Let’s get started I guess… 


Do you guys see those smashed pieces of watermelon? That is me. Or what’s left of me. I can not handle this book… It was so so so sad. Like I was a puddle like on three separate occasions, THAT’S NOT SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN! I have a heart of stone, how did this book break it?? That being said, this book was glorious.

The world building was really cool, Marissa Meyer does an amazing job with retellings. I feel like she knows Alice and Wonderland as much as she knows her own stories. Even the way the characters talked reflected their setting. Everything was vivid and stuck out in my mind. During the Turtle Rock Festival, I felt the salt whipping through Catherine’s hair and feel the sand beneath her heels. In Hatta’s shop, I saw every hat and every spool of thread. It was amazing. Also, the Raven. What was he doing there? Wasn’t The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe? I need to look at that…

Let’s make a list shall we, of all the things I like:

  • Jest. Oh my gosh he was perfect. But also… Jest… (Barely keeps from saying things.)
  • The storyline, I was actually surprised how she did this. It was… different. Or for me at least, I won’t say more because of spoilers but I think she did somethings differently… It was a good different though. I enjoyed it.
  • The cover, because, the cover. It was wonderful. I look at it a lot. But all her covers are awesome so no surprise there.
  • The feels. Yea, I’ll say I like them. In a sense. It was interesting. I haven’t cried this hard in a while.
  • The king. Because he was an adorable little thing. I didn’t like him at the end but, he was trying so hard with Cathrine.
  • Mostly everything else to be honest…


Now let’s make a list of all the things I didn’t like:

  • The end… I’m a puddle now. It’s not ok…
  • Cathrine. Oh my gosh she bugged me. Right when I started liking her, she would say something that made my porcupine quills stand on end. She was almost stereotypical  at some points. And how she blame you know who for doing you know what, bugged me a lot. ((I’m keeping the spoilers in, applaud me.))
  • Her mother, but that was to be expected. *Shudders audibly*
  • I still don’t like the end… I like my happy endings thank you very much.
  • They never went over why Jack hated Cathrine, I would’ve loved some back story on that too…

Well, that’s most of it. I loved it but at the same time… I shall find a hole to hide in…

Have a Happy Thanksgiving! Unless you recently finished his book, then I will give you some hot chocolate and some happiness. If I can find it. Have a good night y’all.
