Mini Book Review: Posioned Apples by Christine Hepperman

AUTHOR: Christine Hepperman
PUBLISHED: April 23, 2014
PUBLISHER: Green Willow Books
PAGES: 107
SOURCE: Bought
Once upon a time...
you were a princess,
or an orphan.
A wicked witch,
fairy godmother,
prom queen,
team captain,
Big Bad Wolf,
Little Bo Peep.
But you are more than just a hero or
a villain, cursed or charmed. You are
everything in between.
You are everything.

In fifty poems Christine Heppermann places fairy tales side by side with the modern teenage girl. Powerful and provocative, deadly funny and deadly serious, this collection is one to read, to share, to treasure, and to come back to again and again.



 I've read this twice you guys and let me explain why.

I read it twice simply because I forgot what it was about, or better yet what the poems were about. This alone should tell you that it wasn't for me. 

These are 100% my opinions and if you don't like it. I don't care. There are plenty of other people who loved this book. I am but just one reader.

If it weren't for the interesting pictures this would of sucked. 

I know it's harsh, but I can't understand what everyone sees in this book. 

The sad thing is I rarely read stories that I dislike.

Am I just WAYYYYYYY over thinking the poems? 

I felt like they would hurt someone instead of having this powerful message that others said the poems seemed to have.

I don't see the powerful message in these poems. (I honestly wouldn't even call them poems.) 

There's one poem called Red-handed that seems to me like it's negative.

I get that they're suppose to be these darker, grittier poems that are re-tellings, but REALLY?

The upside is that it was short, and I didn't waste to much time reading.

Updates: Review Funk and other junk

Hey to all my followers sorry I haven't been around much. I'm kind of in this review funk which I've been in for awhile now. I have so many books I need to review so I promise I have been reading and loving the stories (mostly.) I try to sit down and write reviews, and I just stare at the screen until I start youtubing it up, and then I'm back to no reviews written. I feel like my time was wasted. 
Here are the books that need reviews..-sigh- I might actually re-read some of them.

I have been on my instagram a lot more the past 2 months doing book photo challenges. June I actually did one for the whole month, and posted the pictures on my site. This month I have two that I'm doing, but I haven't done it everyday. I really love being able to make pretty photos with my books so hopefully I can continue. I've thought about doing a post here where I talk about my instagram and the photos and everything. It's becoming a bit of an obsession.
