Devoured, Amanda Marrone

Here comes another new blog category: creepy.

I liked this book. It was perfect Sunday afternoon, stricken with the first cold of the school year, bathtub reading. But the story was pretty creepy for me and my pansy gross out threshold. I always enjoy twists on fairy tales and this book does quite a number on the Snow White story with an emphasis on the woodsman who was supposed to cut out Snow White's heart plot thread.

I also liked the descriptions of the goth-pseudo-Disneyland amusement park that Megan ends up working at. I could totally envision the Hansel & Gretel ride... which might be why I found this story so creepy- it was all described quite vividly.
