    "I am going to my grandma's house, and if you try to stop me I will slice off whatever I can reach and leave you here to bleed to death." With alternating timelines that reveal the decimation of the world, Red is our consistent main character who shows that being a woman in a man's...

    Once upon a time there was a girl named Little Red Riding Hood. Her mother said to her one day, Red (she always called her Red for short except when she was angry and then it was "LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD GET YOUR ASS OVER HERE NOW"), Red, your dear grandmother is lonely and hungry a...

    The Girl in Red brings together so many elements that I absolutely love in books. Pandemic? Check. Breakdown of civilization? Check. Woman having to survive on her own? Check, check, check. Red, in her earlier years, was an avid consumer of horror and disaster films, and so she know...

    3 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2019/06/23/... First of all, it?s always a joy to read the gritty retellings of fairy tales by Christina Henry, and The Girl in Red captured my attention in particular because of its slightly different approach. Whereas t...

    I started reading The Girl in Red on 5/27/2019 and finished it on 5/30/2019 at 12:55AM. This book is a great read! I love reading the author?s other book called The Mermaid as well. I have heard Alice is another blogger?s favorite and I can?t wait to read it too. This book has a ...

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books. I liked this book a lot! I really had no idea that this book would be a post-apocalyptic story but I couldn't have been happier about that fact once I started reading. I see now that little fact would have been obvious ...

    Until three months ago, life was ?normal,? but the Crisis changed all that and now Red has one goal, to survive in a world filled with the monsters the new world has turned loose. THE GIRL IN RED by Christina Henry is a tale of survival, of violence and the true grit that the gi...

    A retelling of a fairy story set after the apocalypse. Sounds weird but it did not surprise me as I had already read a book by this author called Alice. She excels at writing the gruesome and gory plus her book covers are brilliant! The Girl in Red was not quite as good as Alice b...

    Well ok, that was something different from what I have been reading lately and I have been reading something different quite a bit. The Girl in Red is an entertaining yet a little horrifying and creative, post-apocalyptic take on Little Red Riding Hood. Christina Henry is known for ...

    "People were far scarier than any disease or zombie or alien or face-eating monster." THIS is the Christina Henry I love! I loved Lost Boy but didn't really think much of Alice or Red Queen so I felt this could go one of two ways. Thankfully it went the former and I was gripped! ...

    Red didn?t like to think of herself as a killer, but she wasn?t about to let herself get eaten up just because she was a woman alone in the woods. Every now and then, you find a book that is so special, so incredible, has such a massive impact on your life that when you turn th...

    Damn it to hell!! I loved the authors Alice book and I love the hell outta this book cover!!! I put off reading it in case it was going to be more bullshit about my wolves (red riding hood lied, I own the shirt) but I borrowed the audio from the library just to see. I was think...

    In this post-apocalyptic retelling of 'Little Red Riding Hood', a young woman (nicknamed Red) flees her home to travel 300 miles through the woods to get to Grandma's house after a deadly virus simply called 'the Cough' wipes out most of the population. Along the way there are many wol...

    Review:This should have been titled, ?Stumpy Red Riding Fail? or ?A Post Pandemic Virtue Signalling Guide?. The novel pretty much starts with the ?Guns are bad? shtick. And I quote,?Red despised holding the gun, despised everything about it, hated how cold and hateful...

    I read something a little different, and it really paid off!. ? ? ? ? I?ve long wanted to read a Christina Henry book. I?ve even bought a couple for my shelf and just haven?t read them yet. I?m thrilled that The Girl in Red was my first because what a way to begin! ...

    The Girl in Red by Christina Henry is a post apocalyptic Little Red Riding retelling. Take a minute and imagine Red as a totally kickass heroine who just happened to be a doomsday prepper and the end of the world as we know it had begun?. Red, even though technically an adult now...

    Gripping, action-packed & frightening! THE GIRL IN RED by CHRISTINA HENRY is a creative retelling with a kickass heroine and non-stop action that immediately captured my attention. I do believe that this is my very first retelling and what a way to start it all off with this boo...

    It's like The Road by Cormac McCarthy went skipping through the woods to grandmother's house in this dystopian sci-fi retelling of "Little Red Riding Hood." Aside from a few hackneyed attempts to insert views on certain political agendas, this is a well-plotted, swift-paced story of su...

    Actual rating 3.5/5 stars. In this post-apocalyptic retelling of the classic Little Red Riding Hood fairy-tale, Red is an orphaned girl, traversing the new world alone, and the wolves that hunt her are human, but just as predatory. After the Crisis decimated a large portion of t...

    Red needs to get to Grandma's house but this is no fairytale landscape she is traveling through. This is a postapocalyptic war zone where a highly contagious disease runs rampant and has decimated the population. Channel Captain Trips vibes... The world has always been a dang...

    As a Little Red Riding Hood retelling, THE GIRL IN RED by Christina Henry earned 5 howling-great stars from me! Twenty-year-old Cordelia, nicknamed Red, is a horror junkie. She knows every reason in the book why nave people die during an apocalypse. That?s why she became a prepp...

    4.5 rounded up 5 stars to an apocalyptic, dystopian , bloody, vulgar, harsh, nerve-bending, nail-biting, heart-throbbing version of Red Riding Hood! I never see this coming ! This author is more merciless and definitely wilder than Grimm Brothers and I literally devoured each pages but...

    DNF @ 30%. Okay, this might be harsh, but I have a lot of thoughts. Be warned: ranting and spoilers ahead. First of all, the info-dumping. Good god. There was so much background information bogging down the story, and yet none of it actually provided any real understanding of the...

    Many thanks to Berkely for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review "The wolf said, "You know, my dear, it isn't safe for a little girl to walk through these woods alone." Red Riding Hood said, "I find your sexist remark offensive in the extreme, but I will ignore it...
