    Gena Showalter has a brand new Young Adult series called "The Forest of Good and Evil". The first book in the series is called THE EVIL QUEEN. If you can't tell already, it's a fairy tale retelling of Snow White, but the twist is that it's all about the villain. As a fairy tale lover m...

    The Evil Queen is the first installment of the Forest of Good and Evil series, which will apparently be a retelling or reimagination of our favorite fairytales a la Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, etc. This first story revolves (obviously) around the various itera...

    Gena Showater has an unique ability to write stories that are so engrossing, so entertaining, that you never want to put them down. Once you start them, you are hopelessly trapped in the imaginative worlds that she is able to create. Worlds that are so far out there, so far fetched, yo...

    Will you accept your destiny of Evil Queen, Raven Everly? XD Since I got into Ever Afte High I have read what feels like a shit ton of fairy tale retellings and another shit ton awaits me still. And yet the second I find another book with almost the same premise I immediately add it o...

    Have you ever been around middle schoolers and hear how they talk and just think to yourself, my god I?m old? That?s how I felt for 75% of this book. ?The Evil Queen? takes us through the twists and turns of the classic fairy tale as the board is set but the pieces are yet ...

    Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. This sounded like a great book. The concept is fantastic - I'm a huge Disney villain fan, and retellings of fairy tales can be really fun, especially when told from the vil...

    "Evil isn't born, it's made. One thought and action at a time. Take a good look at what you've made." An amazing retelling of Snow White from the Evil Queen's POV. It was dark and magical, romantic and heartbreaking. You will love Everly and laugh, cry and rage right along side he...

    The Evil Queen could have been the next big thing to hit fairy tale retellings. It is dark and awful, with an MC that you can get behind, and it really tugs on your heartstrings, yet it is still so full of hope and innocence. And yet... To me, The Evil Queen read like a rubbish firs...

    Retellings...they're everywhere. I bet it's becoming harder and harder for writers to tell a unique version of the same story. However, even though I hope they never run out of said 'unique' ideas, some of them can be right unsavory. Like this one. I haven't been this torn about a boo...

    The Evil Queen by Gena Showalter is the first book in the young adult fantasy The Forest of Good and Evil series. As one may guess from the title alone this is a retelling of Snow White in a sense that it takes readers way way back to give a background to the one we love to hate hersel...

    This was a really fun read! Ugh, I love retellings and The Evil Queen was a good one to dive into. Pretty sure I loved every character that I was introduced to. The chemistry and every little twist was all amazing in my eyes. In it, you will meet Everly Morrow who is a normal girl l...

    I thought this was a fantastic quick read. The dialogue was kind of cringy and annoying but the intended audience is YA so I think everyone needs to keep that in mind. The storyline was great, and it was an amazing retelling. Definitely recommend! ...

    Alright, I will admit that I was attracted to starting this book because of its pretty cover and interesting blurb. The reason why I rate this book so poorly is because of the writing style as well as the plot. There's not much plot to speak of, unfortunately. There's a lot of sexual...

    The story had an excellent start and I liked that it was told in first person. Unfortunately, my expectations were a little too high and ended in a DNF. What worked: - I liked that we dive right into the story from the get-go. A lot happens, which is also its ultimate downfall ...

    2 Stars! (movement points) As far as fairy tale retellings go, this one was just okay. Normally, this kind of books are a hit or miss for me but this one fell somewhere in between. The writing came off as a bit childish and it seemed like the author was trying too hard to mak...

    I am floored by how much I loved The Evil Queen by Gena Showalter. I loved my ebook so much, I plan to buy it in print and give it True Love's Kiss. I was so hooked by every comma and looped in every question mark. Seriously! I love how the tale came full circle, though at first I was ...
