Heartless by Marissa Meyer: Audiobook Review

This was one of my most anticipated books of the year, and it lived up to every single one of my expectations!

I don’t exactly know why except that I think I wasn’t crazy about the idea that Scarlet would focus on different characters (and a different fairy tale). Well, […]

When she meets Prince Kai, she knows that nothing can come of her attraction to him – after all, she’s a cyborg, barely tolerated by the world.
