Wolves and Roses by Christina Bauer - OPTIONAL

Wolves and Roses by Christina Bauer, 276 pages.  Monster House Books, 2017. $13.95

Language: R (113 swears, 1 “f”); Mature Content: PG13; Violence: PG



Bryar Rose’s life should be very predictable considering that her life follows the Sleeping Beauty template. However, she has other plans. Bry is not afraid to take risks to make sure she has a say in what her life looks like—even as her aunties try to force Bry to act her part, Denarii try to kill 
Bry for reasons she doesn’t understand, and friends betray Bry’s trust.

This was a fun story to read, but it isn’t very well put together. Wolves and Roses has a very casual feel about it and has repetitive information at the beginning of chapters like episodes of a TV show. Overall, it feels more like a fanfiction story than a well-edited novel. I still enjoyed reading it, but the story could have been better executed.
