Characters: 3 – This was one of the weaker aspects of the book for me, I had trouble connecting with any of the characters in the books

Plot: 3 – While it was an original take, its still Snow White at its core.  So the plot was okay, but nothing I loved.

Writing: 3 – The writing was fine, but nothing that stood out to me as great.

Originality: 4 – For a re-telling, this was one of the best I’ve read in terms of originality.  It was a very fresh take, and I enjoyed it.

Predictability: 3 – While original, I felt the book was fairly predictable.  I mean at the end of the day it’s still Snow White, right?

Romance: 2 – I just didn’t get it I’m sorry.  I don’t want to give anything away, but let’s just say the romance aspect left me a little confused.

World Building: 3 – There were some aspects that really left me wanting more, I didn’t feel like I really had a grasp on this one.
