In this retelling of Sleeping Beauty Alice seems destined to lead a princess's life except for the frightening curse that dreaded Aunt. Wow Heavy subject matter for such a short story Unlike The Tower Room this was definitely easy to trace to the fairy tale it was inspired by Sleeping Beauty But the imagery was none too subtleMore engaging than its predecessor although the plot was ultimately predictable and the journey there was slow and painful It definitely dragged; I think a linear structure would've worked much better for this oneAgain the characters were pretty lifeless and the story flat I think instalove is going to be a recurring thing with Adèle Geras but the main character Alice seemed the type for the 'love at first sight' thing so I guess in this sense Watching the Roses was plausible

REVIEW Watching the Roses

Watching the RosesViolette bestowed at her christening She will die at the age Watching the Kindle of eighteen Although she lives something horrible ha. This book is almost like a fariytale gone bad Alice Bella and Megan were eaglely awaiting Alices 18th birthday This birthday was promised to be the most magnificant and beautiful party they have ever been to Just before this party her nana was telling her of her aunts one in particular Dreaded Aunt Violet All her aunts has given Alice a gift at birth all were nice except Aunt Violets gift was the worst gift ever Yet After this party she lay silent in the tower room as if in a coma Silent to everone but her diary She was destined to live a fairy tale until she heard of the curse Alice was to die on her 18th birthday this ill wishing curse look as if it may come true What i liked in this book was you were always on your feet woundering what was to happen next I disliked that it took such a long time just to get to how the ending was it dragged on for to long The mood of this story was to me mysterious yet sad towards the end The tone was to me i think was wounderious like keep you on your feet thinking type The theme was a fairytale gone bad which to me was pretty cool I think anybody who like fairytale or mysterious books would like this book although this book does have some big words that are hard to understand so you should be a good reader to read this book
