Hoo boy, this review is a hard one for me to tackle. I am a huge Elana K. Arnold, but I am not sure I can get fully behind Red Hood, like I gladly did with Damsel. Some more people need to read this ARC and tell me if I'm wrong.

Red Hood is a sort of, kind of a retelling of Red Riding Hood set in a modern world. The novel is definitely written in a fairy tale tone, almost entirely in second person. I thought it worked well for the story's dreamy, but tense narrative.

It opens with Bisou getting re

Oh man... So I really liked the writing in Damsel which is why I requested this one to read. But I just couldn’t finish this one because I didn’t know it was written in second person POV!! I just can’t do the second person! 😩

I desperately want Elana K. Arnold to focus the rest of her writing on endless feminist fairytale retellings ♥

Thank you so much to Edelwiess for this eARC! I saw the cover and the title and was automatically drawn in, expecting a Red Riding Hood retelling. There are bits and pieces of that story here, but it is a beast all its own. What I found inside these pages was one of the most empowering stories I've had the pleasure to read, and it was so different than many things I've encountered as it was mostly told in second person. This alone made it unique and created a deeper connection with the story and ...more

This was so good. Brutal, visceral, but also in the end... uplifting. I also really loved the use of second person - it was so immersive.
