  4. I really like the writing. I've read a couple of books by Marissa Meyer and I think she does a good job with retelling classic tales (plus Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is one of my all-time favorites), so Heartless sounds like a book I would end up liking. Enjoy your current read!

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
