First review for the 2017 Teens' Top Ten nominees

Heartless by Marissa Meyer


By: Marissa Meyer

Genre: YA Fantasy Retellings

Pages: 453

Published: 2016

Read: February

4 out of 5

I am not a huge fantasy novel fan, however if I had to choose my favorite subgenre it would definitely be the fairy tale retelling stories. I love comparing the original story with the modern version I am reading at the time. And within that grouping, Meyer is my favorite author. This is the second novel of hers I have read. Teens do still love them more than me, but I highly recommend Meyer to anyone wanting to try a fantasy retelling story.  I am surprised that Heartless wasn’t made a part of the Lunar Chronicles series – Catherine could have fit right in with those characters and their adventures. Meyer is a great author and knows how to keep a teen’s interest. She is a great storyteller and well deserving of this nomination.
