Heartless by Melissa Meyer

by Melissa Meyer [YA Meyer] 

Catherine’s goal in life is to open her own bakery. She is known as one of the best bakers of Wonderland, and in being so, has caught the attention of the unmarried king. Dealing with pressure from her family to encourage the king’s advances, Catherine herself is trying to rebuff them.
At the royal ball that Catherine has been dreading, where it is rumored that the king is going to propose to her, she meets Jest. Experiencing attraction for the first time, she and Jest begin a secret courtship.

This is a fresh look at Alice in Wonderland’s Evil Queen, and Wonderland. What was the queen like when she was young? What caused her to become the hated Queen of Hearts?
