Follow the White Rabbit *Beautiful Madness: Book One* by Kellie Sheridan

Synopsis:

For centuries, Wonderland thrived as the domain of beautiful bedlam and unapologetic madness. It was a place like no other. All it took was one girl slipping in through the cracks of the universe to start chaos spiraling toward order. In the 150 years since Alice’s visit, the realm has become tainted—almost normal. Rabbits in waistcoats and playing card minions are little more than creatures of myth, and Wonderland is literally falling to pieces. For Gwen, Rose, and Lucky, Wonderland is home, and yet they know little of its former glory. When the Alice prophecy resurfaces, they’ll have one chance to use Wonderland’s own legends to bring a little mayhem back into their reality. For she who controls Alice controls the fate of Wonderland.

My Thoughts:

Ok I have to admit that the majority of this book was character development and not really any plot and so two thirds of the way through I even thought about stopping BUT I’m glad I didn’t because although it ends abruptly the reason I decided to give it three stars is because I do know that there will soon be an addition to this story and right there toward the end I began to see what potential this series has, there was something there when it felt like the story was just beginning that just said to me, don’t give up, there is greatness yet to come so with that I am ready for Awake and Dreaming!

Splintered by A.G. Howard

I just finished reading Splintered by A.G. Howard and although I will not be giving a lengthy review for this book I have to let everyone know about it. It is by far, hands down the best re-telling of Wonderland that I have read thus far. I would rate this book five stars.. easy. It is that amazing. I will definitely be picking up book two.. Unhinged. I am very excited to see where the author will take this unconventional tale of Wonderland and all its occupants. If you have not read this wonderful story I strongly recommend you do so!Image
