The Good Sister

From the outside, everyone might think Fern and Rose are as close as twin sisters can be: Rose is the responsible one and Fern is the quirky one. But the sisters are devoted to one another and Rose has always been Fern's protector from the time they were small.

Fern needed protecting because their mother was a true sociopath who hid her true nature from the world, and only Rose could see it. Fern always saw the good in everyone. Years ago, Fern did something very, very bad. And Rose has never told a soul. When Fern decides to help her sister achieve her heart's desire of having a baby, Rose realizes with growing horror that Fern might make choices that can only have a terrible outcome. What Rose doesn't realize is that Fern is growing and aware of the secrets Rose, herself, is keeping. And that their mother might have the last word after all.

August 1939: London prepares for war as Hitler’s forces sweep across Europe. Grace Bennett has always dreamed of moving to the city, but the bunkers and blackout curtains that she finds on her arrival were not what she expected. And she certainly never imagined she’d wind up working at Primrose Hill, a dusty old bookshop nestled in the heart of London.

Early Morning Riser

A wise, bighearted, boundlessly joyful novel of love, disaster, and unconventional family

Jane falls in love with Duncan easily. He is charming, good natured, and handsome but unfortunately, he has also slept with nearly every woman in Boyne City, Michigan. Jane sees Duncan’s old girlfriends everywhere–at restaurants, at the grocery store, even three towns away.

While Jane may be able to come to terms with dating the world’s most prolific seducer of women, she wishes she did not have to share him quite so widely. His ex wife, Aggie, a woman with shiny hair and pale milkmaid skin, still has Duncan mow her lawn. His coworker, Jimmy, comes and goes from Duncan’s apartment at the most inopportune times. Sometimes Jane wonders if a relationship can even work with three people in it–never mind four. Five if you count Aggie’s eccentric husband, Gary. Not to mention all the other residents of Boyne City, who freely share with Jane their opinions of her choices.

But any notion Jane had of love and marriage changes with one terrible car crash. Soon Jane’s life is permanently intertwined with Duncan’s, Aggie’s, and Jimmy’s, and Jane knows she will never have Duncan to herself. But could it be possible that a deeper kind of happiness is right in front of Jane’s eyes? A novel that is alternately bittersweet and laugh out loud funny, Katherine Heiny’s Early Morning Riser is her most astonishingly wonderful work to date.

Ed this story would have been about coping about wonderment after disillusionment or about finding comfort in magic as cold reality chills your bones but it became something lse altogether This is a bitter tale of vengeance Magic love and mystery are just some tiny sprinkles added on this ultimately cold and saltless dish and the abundance of blood does little to hide the lack of tension My final assessment thus becomes two stars as a testament to the Cheshire s The Toll-Gate enduring grin while the rest vanished into darkness Find all of my reviews at MITCHELL WAS IN CHARGE OF GIFS TODAY SO THINGS MIGHT GO A LITTLE PEAR SHAPED Beware the jaws that bite the claws that snatch Confession time I hate Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and allllll of the movies that have been made from cartoon to Helena Bonham Carter musey magic It s just never been my thing save your anger I ll probably post something offensive before this review isven over That being stated Alice p 35 I wish I were a magicianI d find all those lost girls and bring them home I d take all those men who hurt those girls and make them cry Woah This adds an ntire new dimension to the word dark If you can think of something gruesome or violent or harrowing it s probably in this bookI read Lost Boy by Christina Henry and although that story contained murder and fighting and battle it wasn t nearly on the same scale as Alice was This bordered on horror for me at leastAlice and Hatcher met while in a mental institution Both have committed horrific crimes though Alice can remember very little of her past something to do with a rabbit and being kidnapped When the chance for them to scape arises they grasp it with both hands and leg it However a shadow monster the Jabberwocky has also Empire of the Saviours (Chronicles of a Cosmic Warlord, escaped the institution and seems to be following themAlice and Hatcher must find a way to destroy the Jabberwocky passing through the many areas of the Old City meeting some familiar characters but not as you would remember them Alice is a far cry from the timid young girl we know from Lewis Carroll s stories and from Disney This Alice has seen some horrors and will do whatever necessary to surviveI did find this bookntertaining albeit slightly sickening in places I ll say I still preferred Lost Boy as it remained truer to the original story than this one did But I liked it nough that I will order the seuel from the library and see what happens to Alice and Hatcher next She must start believing in impossible things for impossible things kept appearing before her yes Welcome to the grimy tales of Alice in Darkland Team of Alice and Hatcher or let s call them ALCHER are getting out of the asylum for avenging the people who put them there and leave for nearly 10 freaking yearsAlice was raped by a rabbit and she retaliated by taking his Good Thinking eye with the knife as like the rabbit put an ugly knife scar across the cheeks to mark her She ran away in front of the horrified servants of rabbit but her own family disowned her so the only person helped her to survive throughout her asylum years was Hatcher who also witnessed the massacre of his wife and kidnapping of his own daughterTeam Alcher reminds you of Natural Born Killers Mickey and Mallory or You s Joe and Love but their only resemblance is being blood thirsty killers They re not sociopaths stalkers obsessive psychopaths Both of them keeps their light and goodness inside but the traumaticxperiences and abandonment made them who they are right nowThis retelling is dirty irritating nerve bending graphic brutal It s Death in Mumbai even darker than Grimm Brothers stories There are massacres rape illegal girl trafficking cannibalism violent murders You feel like you just stepped into the dark side of the moonAt some parts I couldn t decide if I should be afraid of the monsters of the books or inner monsters of the normal people who took control of them for diving into violent acts When Alcher leaves the asylum they accidentally freed one of the most dangerous creature Jabberwocky out there But at some parts we see that Alice can control Jabberwock so does it make her terrifying creatureWhen Alice follows her bloody gruesome vulgar path she turns into Tarantino s Bride from Kill Bill and starts her avenging game Her partners in crime Hatcher accompanied her atverywhere they saved Baccarat : La lgende du cristal each other s lives and at thend we understand #Their Stories Didn T #stories didn t so farThis one is O Colégio de Todos os Segredos exciting heart throbbing but also mind numbing and definitely so much bloody journey that I canver imagine Yes this story should be adapted into series but only Tarantino s direction can deal with so much blood violence rottennessI loved the first book and I m so ready to dive into second one March Violets (Bernie Gunther, even though there are mixed reviews and heavy criticism about the direction of the story Let s read and decide about it This is a bizarre violent story one full of menace and dark magic It s trippy the way thatvery Alice book should be and full of nightmarish images and themes I loved it for the most partbut BUT I have one problem with it and it s a pretty major one the book is Zoete tranen extremely rape y Huge trigger warning if you are bothered by sexual violence of any sort because it sverywhere Huge trigger warning if you are bothered by sexual violence of any sort because it s Water Music everywhere this world both blatant and implied and both active and imagined While I ve always thought most fairy tale retellings and re imaginings could use a bit meditation on the themes of seduction and coercion it s in the very nature of many of the original stories after all I wasxtremely bothered by the degree of rape and abuse here If you are able to look past that ugh it pains me to Revived even phrase this in such a way the book is incredibly imaginative and just what a grown up Alice story should be It s well written delightfully weird and scatter shot with wince inducing horror AND A GIANT RABBIT I couldn t turn the pages fastnough and I m very interested in seeing where the story goes next But I also am very disturbed by the rape of past present and possible future And I m bothered by the implication that all men no matter how good are susceptible to bring overcome by lust Student Research Projects in Calculus even under the most horrifyinglyxtreme circumstances Somixed reactions from me because I feel so very strongly about the way women are treated in this book and the view of men Please note however the relatively high rating despite that Probably best to judge for yourself if you re interestedA bit of a polish on this review at some point Bring it Alice I m not scared Oh how I should haveTRIGGER WARNING Graphic rape a lot and violence By no means is Alice a flawless book and I m not gonna lie the first chapters if they hooked me confused me as hell in the same time Who are these people What do they want What are their relationships like Where the fuck are they What s this world where human traffic rape and violence are common practices where the awful way women are treated makes me want to scream To be honest I always thought that Alice in Wonderland was weird as fuck and developed in an undercurrent of crazy violence and here Well Christina Henry sure pictured the characters we know in the most terrifying light I love this kind of retellings with passion and despite the horror I couldn t help but be mesmerized at all the magical and strange creatures we meet Moreover as long as it took for me to simply understand what was going on it didn t influence my interest not at any. Ce blond hangs in tangles down her back She doesn't remember why she's in such a terrible place Just a tea party long ago and long ars and bloodThen. Review 1255Well as a retelling that did a rather curious jobI was so xcited to read this book It s Love for Imperfect Things even on my can t wait to read shelf There is something about the idea of a retelling in which Alice hasscaped from an asylum that so fits the wondrous aura of the original book Yet this did not stick to any of the plot points truly Which was very disappointing I imagine it would be A Heart of Stone extremely difficult to manufacture a narrative from the nearly unrelated curiosities of the original Alice in Wonderland Tim Burton certainly struggled but it seemed like the only thing this attempt did was take some namesIt seems that this is not the only shared factor between Tim Burton s adaptation and Christina Henry s Both focus upon the plotline of Alice defeating the Jabberwocky which is somewhat ridiculous if you think about it Both reuire a certain blade to kill it Both have weird sexualizations of the plot points which is so odd because the original Alice is a CHILD Especially Henry s thentirety of the book was centered upon human trafficking for prostitution and sexual assault Both have significantly aged Alices perhaps to fit this Maybe Henry was adapting Burton s take on the book rather than the book itself It all came off as very plagiarizedThings specifically that bugged me about Henry s take Alice travels with her middle aged mental institution next door neighbor whom she is in love with for some reason He to the best of my detection is not modeled upon a character The Rabbit is a villain the main one and does not share any attributes with the original White Rabbit In fact it seems that Henry may have intended the Rabbit to mean the March Hare Everyone in the book is a villain and there is a strange incorporation of characters from Through the Looking Glass but not the important ones Tweedle Dee Tweedle Dum and the chess pieces for xample go undiscussed Maybe in the next books In general it was so frustrating to try to compare this book to the original because it didn t add up And that is all the fun of retellingsAfter 291 pages of unspeakable violence the nding of this book was unbelievably anticlimactic We follow Alice and Hatcher her Language and Linguistics extremely old my only character trait is I m a crazy murderer love interest as they battle their way to the two boss characters the Rabbit and the Jabberwocky I don t want to spoil anything so I ll just say wencounter these guys for a total of the last dozen pages Very frustrating God I m so upset by how much I hated this What a cool concept Divertimento entirely dashedBottom line if you like very violent books you may like this If you like retellings you will not I sure didn t With Alice in Wonderland Lewis Carroll has created a world that has taken root in many people s minds Wonderland s mysterious inhabitants haventrenched themselves into our dreams as soon as we heard or read about them It should come as no surprise then that this realm has spawned millions of references not to mention the abundance of stories that sprouted in other minds with Disney twists and darker turns but always with the Cheshire s grin somewhere lurking about When I read Lewis Carroll s work for myself I came away a bit disappointed The story felt too disjointed the characters not relatable Love Is a Fairy Tale enough and beyond the first moments of awe throughncountering such strange creatures and absurd landscapes lay a feeling of anticlimax Maybe it s the vivid and highly appealing image that has been painted of Wonderland or maybe it s the feeling that could be discovered in the white rabbits s burrow but despite my disillusionment something about the story keeps fascinating me I think the true power of Wonderland is found in how it works differently in verybody s imagination For some the set pieces that were created here have become molds for their own dreams Wonderland being a river bed through which their own fantasies run their course For me Wonderland used to bed through which their own fantasies run their course For me Wonderland used to that place where imagination has gone the farthest a horizon for my daydreams Recently it also felt that it s where fancy has got the longest way ahead of it as I dream of taking a left where Alice has taken a right Christina Henry is one of the many authors to have decided that could be done with Wonderland and her take on the matter has been largely met with praise When I started this book I was skeptical of an author who had to make use of a mold to get her STORY OUT THERE ON THE OTHER out there On the other there is no better mold than the one that s got Made in Wonderland tched on the bottom so I decided to give it a try And at first I was highly ntertained The green grassy hills made way for an industrial city the sparkling blue rivers have been replaced by green sludge and the merry cast of characters have become ither bruised and battered victims or terrifying monsters Alice herself is no longer the curious girl but a scared scarred and confused woman who has to deal with the trauma of rape while being locked away in a mental institution Dark clouds gather fires Bangkok Wakes to Rain erupt and another tumble down the rabbit holensues only this time it s going to be bloodyBut as with the original my initial The Right Sort of Man (Sparks Bainbridge Mystery enthusiastic feelings did notndure Four stars became three and as I wrote this review it Darkmere even dropped to two This is because at some point the narrative was showing some symptoms of the Young Adult Literature disease The first symptom overexplanation spoonfeeding of interpretations making the implicit needlesslyxplicit Juicy lines that are meant to grab the reader s interest are put in italics just to make sure you can t miss their genius Where Lewis Carroll left a lot of silhouettes in his shrouds of mystery Christina Henry drags them out into the spotlight and Et si la maladie n'tait pas un hasard ? explains them away Nothing is left up to the imagination As if it wasn t badnough that the once magical characters suddenly had to have something as ridiculously mundane as motives these motives also had to be clarified In my book that s akin to blasphemy in Wonderland The second symptom bitterness I don t know if it s a YA thing specifically or a recent trend in literature as a whole but the few stories I have read in the genre carry with them a certain bitterness that goes well with the dark atmosphere in which the protagonists wallow a darkness that #Was Specifically Designed To Account For Such A Supposedly Mature #specifically designed to account for such a supposedly mature Like any bitterness it carries whiffs of pomposity and leads to a certain class of philosophies such as an Den of Shadows (Gamblers Den eye for anye that sound all the pertinent and alluring due to all the Scraps Of The Untainted Sky emotional baggage the reader is asked to hold on toAs a side symptom the bitterness asver crowned with a false sense of moral highground and intellectual superiority allowed the author to make a villain out of practically The Eric Carle Gift Set every character While it was innovative to see the Walrus depicted as a ruthless ganglord in the beginning it got old very uickly as all the other characters were made into something similar during the course of this story This book felt and like black paint being splashed on a painting of a beautiful landscape Darkness was spilled all over the place to such anxtent that one wonders why the author didn t choose to do it on a blank canvas instead of spoiling such a pretty place I guess for many it s the contrast that makes it work It did for a long time for me too but in the Huguenot Prophecy and Clandestine Worship in the Eighteenth Century end there was little contrast left as darkness filled thentire frame I hop. In a warren of crumbling buildings called the Old City a hospital choes with the screams of the poor souls inside Inside there is a woman Her hair on.

CHARACTERS Alice By Christina Henry

Moment From the first page I was intrigued horrified drowned into this sick journey of theirs It started with my breath thinning then gasping and struggling for air I was there with Alice who coudn t annoy me ven if she kept following Hatcher around because after what she lived through it made sense and she was lucid about her need and their somewhat unhealthy relationship Perhaps this world forces her to be taken care of by a man but nobody owns her and she makes sure that Aeralis (The Frost Chronicles, everyone knows it Fierce fierce Alice she s in no need of saving after all Trust me on this And then there s Hatcher Hatcher whose madness took violent turns sometimes and whose mind we could never really trust but Hatcher who was ready to do anything to protect her Starting Alice I didn txpect his character and he surprised me in the best way possibleThis said I won t say that their relationship didn t surprise or make me uncomfortable at times because it did What is it that they have Love Friendship Whatever it is its Alternatives Chapter 2 (The Chronos Files; The Shattered Saga evolution is beautiful Really though Their uest for revenge and blood captivated me and I rooted for them to kill these fuckers something fierce Whoops This said I didn tnjoy some parts of it I m not lying when I say that this book is really rape y and wanted for some men to go over the stereotyping lust because really that s why I can t bring myself to give it the full 5 If I never got the impression that rape was used as a plot device but rather as a way to show how monstruous and Cincinnati and Other Plays excruciating this world is and NEVER condoned in any way I don t like the fact that almost all men are bad Thanks god for view spoilerHatcher hide spoiler 32518 ON SALE for 199 When I first read ALICE I had a hard time categorizing it It was Victorian but it wasn t steampumk It was horror ish Fortunately it very obviously a retelling so at least I had that BUT Just having read this article I can now solidly identify it at DREADPUN SAY HELLO to one of the creepiest retellingsver writtenI didn t think it was gross or anything of the like but it is really unmistakably disturbing And that s fun Witnessing the new somber Alice kill a bunch of murderers completely captured my attention Crazy thing is she still keeps a sliver of innocence through all of that Maybe because compared to her friend THE Hatcher she s a sweetheart But she really made me think of a fallen angel ready for vengeance and who would stop at nothing to get what they want EhehehI recall the author did not put much Speak Out! emphasis on the appearance of Hatcher or Alice for a matter of fact not that we need it so I basically imagined my own sexy Hatcher He s ten years older than Alice and that s a downer in my opinion I reckon he is in his forties and very much feels his age His being serious all the time seriously never helps in making him sound younger Plus I don t remember himver cracking a joke Ever He s all about intense glares deep speeches and killing people of courseChristina Henry s writing style is one that will one day make her an international best selling author She might not know it yet but I have a strong feeling that will happen if she keeps writing books as good as this one I am a very hard grader on what I believe MAKES a story the characters But Miss Henry passed the xam with a beautiful mark shall I add As you know this is a retelling of Alice s Adventures in Wonderland a book I was never a fan of So the majority of the protagonists and antagonists we see are from Wonderland Except funny thing is the author decided to transform the animals we see in the classic into humans So the Cheshire cat is not really a cat None fully keep their former personalities seeing that they are considerably mischievous in here if not completely mad and devious but you ll still recognize them in their gestures and voicesSomething I thought was undeniably ridiculous was how asily Alice kills her targets It s not that she s skilled or anything although she does show a promising career in assassination but she s just so weirdly lucky She means to kill someone and because she takes them by surprise they re dead before they can ven flinch Or she stabs Them In The Back Before They Even Hear The Flicker in the back before they ven hear the flicker a movement behind them They never put up a fight A tiny bit unrealistic if you ask me How is it that I always nd Up My Reviews On A my reviews on a paragraph I promise to start with the flaws and nd with the wonders next time This book is worth it And you DON T Lone Star Standoff even have to like Alice s Adventures in Wonderland tonjoy it But you do need to manage darkness in your stories Also it may not be such a good idea to read it before going to bed just sayin Alice dreamed of blood Blood on her hands and under her feet blood in her mouth and pouring from her yes The room was filled with it This is one of the best darkest and most disturbing retellings I have ver read The author gets xtremely creative with this world weaving in characters we recognize from the original Alice in Wonderland but telling a very different kind of story If you like your retellings to stay close to the original then don t waste your time with Alice it is very differentThe world created here is not our world and it is not Wonderland It s a horor fantasy style setting in a fictional place called the #Old City Ever since Alice returned to her parents after going missing as a child with blood running down her legs #City Ever since Alice returned to her parents after going missing as a child with blood running down her legs memories and strange inexplicable abilities she has been deemed mad Years later she s in a hospital Her only friend is Hatcher the man who talks to her from the next cell and also remembers very little of his life before And then one night a fire at the hospital sets them both free but their suffering is far from overAfter scaping they see a shadow of a monster watching them and somehow Hatcher knows what it means the Jabberwock is free And there is only one way to kill him To find it Alice and Hatcher are forced deep into the bowels of the Old City a place run by overlords the Walrus the Carpenter the Caterpillar and Cheshire And somewhere in the darkness of this city fuelled by pain and misery there lies the truth about Alice s forgotten past The Rabbit waits for herThese names may be familiar but favourite characters become terrifyingly monstrous in the author s hands I don t want to sugar coat it in the slightest this book is an adult gory and sometimes upsetting fairytale If you are disturbed by Brom s The Child Thief or Margo Lanagan s Tender Morsels then you will not like this book Take this uote about a girl who has been bought tortured and displayed for amusement The wings were not attached to her shoulders by straps The girl s back had been cut from the top of her shoulder to the bottom of her rib cage on both sides of her spine The beautiful butterfly wings were neatly sewn into the Decision exposed muscle As the girl flexed her shoulders the wings would beat That is the kind of book this is I also need to offer a huge trigger warning Wendy already mentioned this but there is a lot of rape in this book At thend I felt like I understood why the author chose to include it and why it had importance in the story but that didn t make it any less disturbing to read But if you can stomach it this is definitely worth the read Very imaginative magical creepy and horrifying A beautifully written little nightmareBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Pinterest. One night a fire at the hospital gives the woman a chance to scape leaving her free to uncover the truth about what happened to her all those years .
