ReviewSeeing as I have not been a fan of Sleeping Beauty retellings, I went into this book with an open mind. Slumber is a retelling about Rory who was sent into an insane asylum for murdering her boyfriend Philip. However, she has no collection of her past before she was admitted.
This book was told in multiple POVs which makes this book really fun to read since you are able to see what everyone is thinking. What really drew me to this book is the plot. It was really interesting and it gives a whole new perspective of the Sleeping Beauty fairytale, however, after that, the book just went kind of downhill.
Although I went into it with no expectations, it was hard for me to get into it and I have to put it down a couple of times. The characters were interesting and are relatable but there is nothing special about them that particularly drew me to them. Even when it reached the climax, it wasn't really dramatic as I thought it would be and the ending did not leave a big impression with me.
