Either I've grown out of YA fiction, or my patience and forgiveness for it has diminished over the past couple of years. It also doesn't help how many Wonderland retellings I've seen, which made "Queen of Hearts" already a tough sell. But sometimes a nice easy read sounds appealing, which I thought ...

3.5/5 Stars Imagine what the queen was like as a child. Queen of Hearts tells us the story of young Dinah and what her life was like growing up in the well known, Alice in Wonderland world. There were things I liked and didn't like about this version. Dinah has been the princess everyone has ig...

I'm going to start off this review by saying that if you are planning to read this book in 2015, don't. Wait. For, like, three years or so. The author has just announced that the SparkPress editions are no longer available because HarperTeen has acquired rights to the whole trilogy. Books one and tw...

It took me a month to read this book. Let me repeat that again: ONE WHOLE MONTH. I wouldn't go as far to say it's a bad story, but it's definitely underdeveloped and the strengths of the book do not compensate for its faults. My main issue has to do with the lack of plot. The entire plot can be...

“Listen to me, Dinah,” he hissed. “Things are going to change for you, child, and you had better be made of stronger stuff than the whiny brat you seem to be now.” Nope. Didn't happen. I feel like this book pulled a bait-and-switch on me, and I am so incredibly frustrated right now. It promised me ...

Before she was known as the wicked, devious Queen of Hearts who wanted the world's love, she was just a girl. She only dreams of having Wardley as her husband, and of the day her father finally treats her with love and adoration. But as the countdown begins for Dinah's coronation as the Queen of Hea...

Alice in Wonderland is more of my sister’s thing than mine. She’s already taken dibs on the name if she’s to ever have a child. Which is perfectly okay with me. Not because I don’t like the book. Because unlike my sister, I’ve actually read the book, something she’ll never readily admit. Instea...

There are many takes on Alice in Wonderland. Not just books but movies as well. Some of them are pretty good and some are of questionable quality. I'm thankful that “Queen of Hearts, volume one: The Crown” fell into the pretty good camp.The main character of the book is a girl named Dinah who is a p...

Summary from Netgalley: As Princess of Wonderland Palace and the future Queen of Hearts, Dinah’s days are an endless monotony of tea, tarts, and a stream of vicious humiliations at the hands of her father, the King of Hearts. The only highlight of her days is visiting Wardley, her childhood best fri...

Initial reaction: This book rocked, I loved the establishment of the characters and setting in this interesting tale in the vein of Alice in Wonderland. Dinah is a very flawed but very well developed character and I'll admit I followed her very well throughout this narrative, alongside the rest of t...
