    • I purchased Sisters Red because it was censored off of Bitch Magazine s 100 Young Adult Books for the Feminist Reader Someone linked to a review on Book Smuggler I read the review on Book Smuggler and purchased Sisters Red I m one of those people who will read censored books just because they were censored Book censorship is basically one of the most ridiculous things you can do People just get curious about the why and really there s nothing pointless than pretending a book doesn t exist It s [...]


    • still one of the best movie posters everill one of the best songs everso i understand why barnes and noble has this filed under teen paranormal romance, but that is really a terrible designation frankly,it is terrible that such a category even exists, or that there are such a substantial number of books in the section to my way of thinking, it should really only be like half a shelf, like the agriculture section in our store because, really, in nyc, who needs that many books about how to raise c [...]


    • I am confident, I am capable, and I will not wait to be rescued by a woodsman or a hunter I will escape 3.5Hmm, this is a very difficult book to rate One one hand, it contains most of the elements I consider important in a good urban fantasy novel tough heroines, nice love interest but with the story focus being on bigger things than whether or not they ll get together, mean and nasty supernaturals, touch of grittiness yet I still had a few problems I thought Rosie was a very dull character for [...]


    • Okay, Sisters Red, we need to sit down and have a little chat.I love strong characters I love strong female character I especially love strong female characters who happen to kick a lot of arse You think there isn t a difference, but actually, there s plenty Because sometimes writers try to have strong, kickass female characters, but only end up with the kick ass part and leave the strong one out.To put it in another way, whenever I read books like Sisters Red, I feel like the writer wanted some [...]


    • Best red riding hood retelling ive ever read I loved the wolf hunting it reminded me of supernatural And the two sisters relationship is strained and broken but still so strong I loved the semi love triangle and the friendship between the three of them,So strong and connected and secretive all at once Alot of it actually reminds me of supernatural which might be why i like it so much Looking for the potential and plot twist.I also really like both points of view Each sisters POV kept me entertai [...]


    • Originally reviewed on The Book Smugglers back in 2010 a few months later this review caused a shitstorm online and you can read about it here Ana s take Listen.I could tell you that for the first pages of this book I was completely engrossed in the story How could I not I mean, a dark, violent even, retelling of Red Riding Hood in which two sisters are the hunters who kill the wolves I am in It helps that the first pages were very gripping back in the past when the kids lived with their grandmo [...]



    • I loved Pearce s debut novel, As You Wish and while I loved the idea of Sisters Red I just enjoy it quite as much as I did As You Wish.I loved how Pearce portrayed Rosie and Scarlett s world it was almost like they lived in this fairy tale realm that was on the outer edge of a world much like our own, there was something very notable about that And I loved the relationship between the sisters Having two sisters of my own, I understand how strong of a bond sisterhood can be Not to mention that th [...]


    • The beginning was good, then I got impatient and it just felt like Rosie was whining a little to me And the age thing with her and Silas Dude No She s basically still a kid, no matter how different she looks physically A lot of people look older than their age, does that mean that it s okay She s underage Not legal He s an adult Plain and simple And I felt so bad for Scarlett Didn t she deserve SOME sort of romantic interest Jeez, just because she s scarred that makes it okay for guys not to be [...]


    • People might get the wrong idea, a pretty girl like you alone on a corner like this My lips curve into a grin as I draw the hatchet from my belt There s a swish as his clothes hit the ground, then the clicking sound of claws on pavement I m not worried, I answer, unable to suppress a sly grin I m not that kind of girl Based on the prologue and first chapter I thought this book would have ended up as at least a four star rating.It starts out dark and sultry, but when the reader is introduced to s [...]


    • Read This Review More Like It At Ageless Pages ReviewsFrom the second page of this book when a man s smile simultaneously faded and grew forced, to the 321st page when the sister s entangled their arms around each other and sniffed each other s hair, I hated every single thing about this book Clearly, the writing was a problem It was awkward, contradictory, and stilted I wasn t expecting the plot to break barriers, but the big twist was so badly telegraphed that I saw it 150 pages before it was [...]


    • Knowledge does have a way of making you an outcast This story isn t very similar to Little Red Riding Hood though the concept is Wolves Or in accurate words, Werewolves And they are completely mean and nasty and gritty and Oh, they are just your typical mean bad wolves.If you want me to describe this book in one sentence then this is what I would have said This book is action packed Each action filled event is described in so much detail that it doesn t get repetitive or boring to read Apart fro [...]


    • Let me start off by saying that I enjoyed the first 1 3 or so of this book But then stupid things started happening repetitive action scenes, insta love which seriously annoyed me ugh.


    • I loved this book It had heaps of problems But who cares I loved it After my sister threatened my life if I didn t read it funny how that works, eh Considering it saboutsisters I finally borrowed it from the library I read it in a day.I was totally engrossed with the characters and world, but utterly bored with the plot.Characters The sisters are Scarlett and Rosie They re a mash up of Little Red Riding Hood but two instead of one which I think is absolutely wonderful I LOVE sister stories This [...]


    • I wanted to like this book I really did Being a fan of the Fables series I was excited at the prospect of a fairy tale retelling Unfortunately, I was bitterly disappointed Actually, at points I was downright angry.It didn t help that I hated the character of Rosie from the very moment she appeared on the page Her sister Scarlett is physically disfigured and emotionally tormented from a Fenris attack when they were children and has made it her life s work to defend mankind, yet Rosie s main conce [...]


    • Sisters Red is a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood There s a wolf and a grandma but that s really all the two have in common In this version there are two sisters, Rosie and Scarlett, and after their encounter with a werewolf they become hunters Dislikes I don t understand why the girls dropped out of school I think it would have been totally possible for them to hunt and go to school Buffy finished high school while guarding the Hellmouth Why are they wearing cloaks They could wear anything r [...]


    • Before I started to read this book, I had kind of mixed feelings about it Whereas I have only heard good things about Jackson Pearce s debut, As You Wish, Sisters Red has received mixed reviews.A cruel attack of a Fenris, a soulless wolf man craving young women s blood, has destroyed the lives of the two March sisters Scarlett and Rosie Now Scarlett, heavily scarred and thinking of herself as an outcast, is committed to hunt the monsters and revenge her grandmother s death Her younger sister Ros [...]


    • This book suffers terribly from that target age of readers is smarter than the plot of the book syndrome Never do that view spoiler If your plot revolves around a prophecy about a male, make sure you have than one male character to keep people guessing As soon as they brought up the concept of the Potential , I knew who it was, and I was practically waiting the whole rest of the book for Scarlett to figure it out hide spoiler It s not fun to watch characters go on and on for 2 3 of the book try [...]


    • First let me explain that a wonderful friend shared her ARC copy of Sisters Red, so I had the pleasure of reading prior to its release date on June 2, 2010.I often think that re told fairy tales can go only one of two ways slightly dull or brilliantly twisted Sisters Red is definitely in the latter category.Take the tale of Little Red Riding Hood and turn it around into a story about sibling bonds and rivalry Now, mix in the mythology of The Wolf only make it darker and modern Then you ll begin [...]


    • Fierce.Rojo Feroz es el primer retelling que leo, y con s lo este libro el g nero si es que es un g nero en si mismo me ha dejado fascinada Rojo Ferozsigue la historia de Scarlett y Rosie Merch, dos hermanas que han dedicado su vida a la caza defenris que son hombres lobos, con algunas diferencias y un nombre m s bonito Como retelling de Caperucita Roja me encant no s exactamente la manera en la que la mayor a de los retellings funcionan, pero este me ha gustado much simo Am ver elementos del cu [...]


    • Sister Red is the modern day version of the timeless storybook Little Red Riding Hood, only in this re telling, it s much darker, deeper and desperate.We begin our tale with two sisters, Scarlett and Rosie March.Scarlett is devoted to the hunt, or like obsessed, given that seven years before, a Fenris stole the lives of there grandmother and left her with countless battle scars, including an eye Now, an eighteen year old Scarlett, with the help of partner in crime Silas, has made it her life wo [...]


    • This isn t a run of the mill werewolf book, but a very intelligently written story loosely based on the Red Riding Hood fairy tale This is quite a special little book, from the depth of emotion felt by the characters to the attention to detail of their lives and surroundings.I really enjoyed the relationships between the characters, Scarlett, Rosie and Silas The relationships are quite complex and yet simple at the same time Simple because they all love each other and would do anything to protec [...]


    • Jackson Pearce s dark retelling and continuation of Little Red Riding Hood is really good Excellently written, cleverly adapted and highly original So do not be put off by my rating It s not the book, it s me As I passed the first third mark I sensed that I was feeling and depressed and my sympathy for both sisters overshadowed my pleasure in reading the story It must be a sign of Pearce s great writing that the tension, the guilt and the strange bond between the sisters, who have both dedicat [...]


    • Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce delivers a perfectly crafted, suspenseful modern twist on a famous fairy tale Pearce does not miss a beat when it comes to blending all the right elements to keep the reader engaged and riveted as two sisters, who are committed to protecting the world of the dangerous Fenris, risk what it takes to fight for what they believe in Scarlett and Rosie s sisterly devotion mixed with Silas bond to the girls was a captivating read that kept me engaged with page after page o [...]


    • When they attack her, I scream until my voice is hoarse so I don t have to hear the shredding sounds 3.5 stars That may be one of my favorite quotes of all time Plot synopsis view spoiler Sisters Red is darker retelling of Little Red Riding Hood about Scarlett and Rosie March, sisters who hunt the deadly werewolf esque Fenris responsible for taking Scarlett s eye and killing their grandmother Alongside Silas the woodsmen, they hunt to protect young girls from a gruesome fate hide spoiler There i [...]


    • I love Buffy the Vampire Slayer And this book is like a great, top notch episode of Buffy, sans vampires, but rife with werewolves I don t want to give too much away about this novel, since it won t be released for a while But, let me share with you why Scarlett March and Rosie March, though to a lesser extent is a way better superhero than Buffy Buffy has super slayer strength Scarlett is strong, but there s no super powers here Scarlett has years of consistent, brutal training and a powerful w [...]


    • I had a difficult time becoming engrossed in this story It s well written, the characters are realistic enough, the pace is good, but for some reason I couldn t read for too long at a time without needing breaks.Scarlett is so difficult to like, even when knowing her background, and even when knowing that background her motives and behavior at to a point understood She s selfish and stubborn and it has to be her way or she freaks the bleep out I was shocked, to be honest, by how her life continu [...]


    • Sisters Red is the best kind of fairytale retelling, in that Jackson Pearce takes the kernel of a fairytale Little Red Riding Hood here, obvs and then just runs with it There s no need to hew too closely to the original story because what is the original story, anyway Instead we get this cool, thrilling urban fantasy adventure about sisters who slay werewolves like, yeah I m down with that.Scarlett and Rosie March are young when a werewolf kills their grandmother, leaving them orphaned and virtu [...]


    • I don t think I m in a particular mean mood I m just really getting sick of this type of modern books This review might seem harsh as a result.Writing style normal, modern, contemporary style Not amazing, but not actually bad either The dialogue was lacking something and wasn t as witty or funny as it seemed to think it was There was little or no cursing The description wasn t that great either Falls as so so because of that.Plot wheeeeew, boy, I do not want to do this bit here The plot felt fli [...]


    • This review is also available over at my blog._________________________________Actual rating is 3.5 stars.I love fairytale retellings Love love love them Especially modern ones I wouldn t say this book is one of my favorite YA fairytale retellings, but I guess I enjoyed it.Scarlett and Rosie are sisters who live in a world where Fenris werewolves who murder and consume young girls roam everywhere One had taken out Scarlett s eye when she was younger, and since then she had been a determined hunt [...]
