5.0 Tear You Apart
Fairytales are one of my favorite things, but fairytale mashups, or "broken" fairytales, are even cooler! I recently read and loved STITCHING SNOW (by RC Lewis), as well as CINDER and the entire series by Marissa Meyer. I think readers who loved those will love TEAR YOU APART.It starts out with our ...

4.0 Tear You Apart Book Review
I really enjoyed this book and I have not read the first one. I didn't realize it was part of a series.

2.0 DNF - Pretty Cover, Poor Execution
I got drawn in by the pretty cover. Too bad the story couldn't keep my interest. *sigh*Like a mash up of Grime, Once Upon a Time, and True Blood, as promised by the book summary. Too bad the story fails in the execution. I didn't realize it was the second book in a series, though it didn't feel like...
