Review Slumber by Christy Sloat

slumber

Not all princesses get their happily ever after…
They tell me I killed my boyfriend Phillip in cold blood. I stabbed him twenty one times. I’m only seventeen years old, and I am serving life in Spindle Ridge Asylum for the Criminally Insane.
I don’t remember killing him, so it’s really hard to believe I’m capable of murder. In fact I don’t remember anything before I came to Spindle Ridge, not even my boyfriend.
I can only grasp onto my realistic dreams while the madness of the asylum threatens to pull me under. I dream I’m a beautiful princess and there is an evil faerie named Maleficent who is bent on my destruction. The dreams are the closest thing I have to memories of my life, except they aren’t real.
I’m crazy. I’m not a princess.
They’re the mad illusions of an irrational teenage girl, right?
They’ve assigned me a new doctor, and she says I can trust her, and that she’ll help me see the truth of who I really am.
When she arrived she brought a new patient, Sawyer, who is everything Spindle Ridge isn’t: exciting, mysterious and beautiful. He promises he’s here to rescue me. Trusting either of them frightens me.
Could it be possible that my dreams are more than just the imaginings of a delusional girl? Could they be truth?

Jan Review

I love the cover on this book it just screams fairy tale read me please.  A fairy tale is what you get but not your typical one. This is a retelling and it does a great job of taking the basic concept of sleeping beauty and gives you so much more.  I am total Malificent fan since the movie came out and we got her back story and do like that the author took those new facts and wove them into this story.  It a 3 rating from me as i felt like it was a bit rushed but maybe that cause it was so short.  A 3 rating from me usually means i was entertained but not enough that i had a book hangover and could not go on with my day that still a good rating.
