"Heartless" by Marissa Meyer

Heartless is about a girl, named Catherine, who is the daughter of a marquis. She's expected to marry well and be ladylike, but all she wants to do is bake. She plans to start a bakery with her maid, Mary Ann, but her mom goes behind her back to get her to marry the king. On the night of a ball, the king planned to propose to Catherine, until the Jabberwock, a horrible creature, crashes in. When a disappearing cat named Cheshire notifies her that she was being pawned off to marry the king, she makes a plan with the king's mysterious Joker, Jest, to avoid the question. Jest and Catherine fall in love, but when they plan to run away from Hearts and go back to Jest's home, fate proves to have different plans. While some of those plans may seem good, most of them prove to be bad.

I give this book four stars. Marissa Meyers did a great job mixing in different characters from Alice and Wonderland, but the pace was a little fast. Despite this, the storyline was great and it was a fun read. It was cool reading about someone who has the same name as me. The romance was also extremely well done. I fell in love with Jest almost instantly. I recommend this book to those who love retellings, like me, and enjoy great twists and turns that lead to an unexpected ending.
