~My Thoughts~

"Scary just got sexy" I absolutely love that saying Rene created (I think) but honestly I felt like the sexiness was a bit mild. At least, there wasn't as much as I was expecting that is. What we got was great it just left me with wanting more. I was hoping for more and when I got to the end, I so didn't want the story to stop. It left me craving, wishing Mrs. Folsom would continue this story!

This was an interesting take on Little Red Riding Hood, it was definitely not the childhood fairy tale you remember ;). I loved how the story felt like it was a mix of olden times and modern times, it had a certain charm to it and it was so easy to fall into this world Mrs. Folsom created. All I wish was that it was a bit longer!

Overall, I certainly enjoyed it! There's just a few things I wish were different, which is just mainly wishing it was longer. That we could get to know Rosetta a bit more, to really get to know her, before all this stuff started to happen to her. I think it would be more fun to see her transition I think, to understand the changes she's going through a bit more. But other than that, this was a fun short read and I'm excited to continue Rene's Twisted Wolf Tales series. The next one is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast and y'all know I love that fairy tale!   


Sweet Readings Everybody!
