Review: Heartless by Marissa Meyer

Heartless - Marissa Meyer

Goodreads summary:

Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland and a favorite of the unmarried King, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, she wants to open a shop and create delectable pastries. But for her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for a woman who could be a queen.

At a royal ball where Cath is expected to receive the King’s marriage proposal, she meets handsome and mysterious Jest. 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 a secret courtship.

Cath is determined to choose her own destiny. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.


My opinion:

I didn't like the first half of this book and I just couldn't get into the story. However, the second half was much better and from then I wanted to know what was about to happen. But if I have to be honest, I like The Lunar Chronicles much more than this series so far. I loved the Alice in Wonderland aspects though. 


What is your opinion about Heartless?


Ps. I finished this book right before the year ended, but Booklikes have been down until today so that's why I'm posting this today.
